HONEY SKINCARE IS MORE THAN A TREND!

 

When I was a teen who would try anything to treat my inflamed acne, someone told me that honey was antibacterial and would heal up my tender blemished skin.
I went right home and took the honey squeeze bear out of my pantry and because it worked so well for me, I’ve kept one in my shower ever since. 04_HoneyBear

As an esthetician and a DIY skincare maker I use honey all the time in masks and lip balms. You can literally blend some honey into aloe vera gel for an amazing facial mask or spoon some honey into your warm bath for all over moisture and antioxidant protection.

Anchient Greeks, Egyptions and Romans have been using Honey on the skin a lot longer than I have and for very good reason! Even Kourtney Kardashian is in on to honey with her new gig as the face of Manuka Doctor Honey line.

Not only is honey naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory Honey is also packed with moisture preserving humectants, vitamins B & C, minerals such as potassium magnesium zinc and iron and  electrolights.  That sounds like potent skincare to me!

Below are some of my favorite honey skincare brands and a fun  DIY Lip Balm!

 

DIY Honey Bee Lip Balm

1 tablespoon Organic Honey (I use an orange blossom honey and I suggest buying local if possible)

1 oz Bees wax

A few drops Rose hip seed oil

5 oz Organic Olive, grape or apricot seed oil

2 tablespoons Shea Butter

Pinch of Beet or Pomagranet powder

Combine the rose-hip oil and honey and set aside. Melt bees wax, and olive, grape or apricot seed oil in a double boiler stirring until melted. Remove from heat and stir in shea butter until melted. Stir in oils until incorporated. You can also add a pinch of beet or pomegranate powder if you want some color at this point. Pour into lip balm tubes or jars while still pour-able and let set until hardened. Enjoy!
