The Natural Beauty Benefits of Raw Honey
Raw honey is an excellent addition to any natural beauty routine. It’s perhaps my all-time favorite natural beauty ingredient. I frequently add it into my homemade facial cleansers, and mix it with plain organic yogurt to make a wonderfully hydrating face mask.
Honey’s use as a natural beauty treatment and cosmetic ingredient dates as far back as ancient Egypt. Those ancient girls were definitely on to something. Honey is a wonderful humectant, which means that it draws moisture to the skin and helps prevent that moisture from escaping. (Who wants to look like a dried plumb?) Plus, it’s loaded with all kinds of beneficial things like vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, which make raw honey an excellent wound healer and skin beautifier.
