Not only does honey taste good, but it is good for your skin and hair, too!
Honey has been used for thousands of years in skincare because of its amazing properties and benefits. The three most popular uses are to fight blemishes, evening out skin tone by naturally exfoliating dry or dull skin, and minimizing the appearance of scars.
Honey contains anti-inflammatory properties, which is always good news for those that struggle with breakouts, itchy skin, or even a sunburn. Some even use it to help fight the signs of aging and keep a youthful glow since it’s loaded with antioxidants. It even has some moisturizing benefits, since it helps your skin draw moisture from the air and retain it.
Speaking of moisture, try honey to moisturize and condition your hair! The vitamins, minerals, and proteins in honey can also help strengthen the strands of the hair. Some have even found that it sped up their hair growth. It also is excellent for keeping your scalp healthy, which in turn leads to healthier hair.
You can apply honey directly to your skin or hair, you can mix it in with other ingredients (like our Dry Masks!), or make it into a paste by mixing it with other ingredients like turmeric, cinnamon, or activated charcoal. We also use honey in our Goat’s Milk Honey & Oats From Scratch Soap as well as our Millionaire’s From Scratch Soap.
