Natural honey is an antibacterial, it has healing properties and also hydrates the skin. It’s necessary to have pure honey in the house all the time as it comes in handy for many beauty purposes. But you have to be careful and not use adulterated honey as it will not give you the benefits that you’re looking for. If you constantly get chapped lips or have acne and even dry hair, you do not have to splurge on expensive beauty products. All you need is honey, honey. Here are honey beauty tips you need in your life.

1. To clear acne.

Mix one table spoon of natural honey with one table spoon of cinnamon then apply on the spots where you have acne. Leave it on for about 10-15 minutes, then wash off and moisturize the skin. Repeat this till you start seeing results.

2. For dry, damaged hair.

Mix 2 parts of honey with one part olive oil and apply it on your hair. Leave it on for 30 minutes then rinse it off. This helps smoothen and condition the hair, leaving it soft, shiny and moisturized.

3. If you have chapped lips,

Simply apply honey on your lips for a few minutes then wipe it off. It will help leave your lips feeling soft and moisturized. You can also create a lip scrub by mixing honey with sugar and rubbing the mix on your lips to exfoliate them and remove dead skin.

4. As a face mask.

Honey has many nutrients and enzymes as well as healing and lightening properties which can be good for your face. Using a clean makeup brush, apply natural honey all over your face, leaving out the eyelids, leave it on for 20 minutes then wash it off. This will leave your skin feeling softer, and glowy.

5. As a face cleanser/scrub.

Mix one table spoon of honey with one tablespoon of grounded oatmeal then apply the mixture on your face and rub it gently all over your face, in a circular motion with your fingertips then rinse off. Oatmeal is one of the best natural cleansers and it exfoliates the skin perfectly, leaving it smooth.
