Give Your Skin a Honey Bath

For the ultimate in a natural skin-beautifying ingredient, try honey. Since the time of Cleopatra’s milk-and-honey baths, honey has been a favorite go-to beauty product from Nature for many famous beauties throughout history.

Pollution, dirt, and other chemical agents in the air can cause the skin lose its ability to retain water, making it look dry, wrinkled and even prematurely aged. The natural hydrating and antioxidant properties of honey trap and seal the moisture, rejuvenate the skin, cleanse the complexion leaving it soft and supple.

Honey in its purest form is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Beauticians suggest using honey abundantly for radiant complexion. Skin care products like baths, shower gels, face creams, skin lotions, moisturizers, body scrubs and even newborns products contain pure honey.

You can also whip up some natural skin care remedies with honey at your home, as follows:

- ¼ cup of honey to your bath keeps your skin soft and supple.

- For dry skin = 1 tsp. honey, vegetable oil each and ¼ tsp. of lemon juice. Pat it onto the dry areas of your skin, leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse with water.

- Make a moisturizing mask with 1 tsp. of honey, 1 egg yolk, ½ tsp. almond oil and 1 tsp. plain yogurt. Apply this mast to your face, neck and other parts of your body. Leave it on for 15 minutes and rinse off with water. You skin will feel moisturized and polished, with tightened pores (less susceptible to clogging and less visible) as a bonus.

- For the silky-smooth skin, mix ¼ cup of honey and 3 tsp. of rosewater. Apply to face, avoiding sensitive areas around the eye, and to the neck also. Massage well and rinse with lukewarm water and enjoy the sensation of new-feeling skin.

- Open the pores on your face by place a cloth dipped in warm water. Smear honey on your face for 20-30 minutes. Rinse first with warm water and then cold water to close the pores.

- Indulge your skin with the paste of 1 tsp. of honey, 1 egg white, 1 tsp. glycerin and flour. Smooth it on over your face and throat, leaving it on for 10 minutes and then washing it off with warm water. Your skin will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

- 4 tbsp. of whole milk powder and 2 tbsp. of honey makes an excellent baby bath addition.
