How To Effectively Use Honey For Your Beauty Benefit
Posted by Nitya Uppal in Skin Care
In these fast-paced times, there is no denying that beauty trends are as fleeting as Kylie Jenner’s changing hair colour. To think of it, in the 90s women were sporting crimped hair (if not “The Rachel”), had skinny eyebrows and always maintained French manicured tips. Since it’s terribly hard to have one single beauty trend stick around, we think it’s important to appreciate the ones that manage to last decades. One of the constants in the skin care world is the use of honey as a natural ingredient in products for women. Here’s a list of the best honey-based products you can order online today.
Achieve naturally cleansed, soft and supple skin with the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask, a unique and effective face mask perfect to add to your beauty routine, twice a week. It contains a formula that's been a traditional remedy of the New Zealand Maori people, with antibacterial manuka honey with fragrances of vanilla and madarin for a refreshing twist. It draws moisture into your skin and anti-oxidises whilst intensely cleansing, leaving you with a rejuvenated, super smooth complexion.
After a long bath, give yourself a mini-spa treatment by gently massaging your body with this product. Putting honey’s moisturising properties to good use, Burt’s Bees Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion is soothing milk meets honey with nourishing yet lightweight natural moisturising properties. Honey acts as a natural humectant, while aloe vera and sunflower oil soothe your skin. It's the perfect product to help with dry and sensitive skin. Its lightly-fragranced formula easily seeps into your skin leaving it smooth, soft and most importantly, relaxed.
Venturing away from skin care products, you can add some goodness of honey to your perfume collection as well. Honey Eau De Parfum by Marc Jacobs is a sunny delicious floral perfume that is energetic and alluring, with a sparkling, golden touch. The fragrance energises with the freshness of green pear and brightened with a splash of fruity punch and juicy mandarin. At the heart of the fragrance is orange blossom, a note of sparkling femininity that mingles with nectars of honeysuckle and peach.
We're especially in love with this product as it does all the heavy work while we get a good night’s rest. The hydrating and brightening overnight facial mask contains 40% Canola Flower Honey that is rich in vitamins, minerals and glucose. These natural ingredients help improve dull skin and clarify the complexion. Before tucking yourself into bed, gently tap to absorb, leave on overnight and your skin appears radiant, even-toned and healthier looking in the morning.
According to research honey has been proven to fight early signs of ageing, moisturise and fight irritable skin. It’s no wonder that big beauty brands love using it as the key ingredient in many of their popular skin care products for women. If you’re willing to get your hands dirty, once every week, take time out of your hectic schedule to pamper your skin with a moisture-rich homemade honey face mask. A mix of honey, greek yogurt and natural turmeric softens skin at an unprecedented speed. Honey’s antiseptic qualities combined with turmeric’s power to lighten up your skin results in a clearer, happier face.
