Honey is one amazingly healthy ingredient with numerous health benefits. Aside from being delicious it has antiseptic, antibacterial and antioxidant properties.

We’re sharing with you 9 different amazing ways in which you can use honey for beauty, skin and hair care.

Face Care
Anti-acne: Honey can be very powerful against the bacteria which cause acne breakouts. It also moisturizes your skin and leaves it soft and silky. Use a cotton swab and apply a small amount on the problematic spots. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and gently rinse with warm water.
Anti-dark circles: Honey is excellent for reducing swelling and dark circles under your eyes. Mix honey and almond oil in equal parts and apply it instead of an eye cream before you go to sleep. Rinse it when you get up and admire your rejuvenated face.
Anti-wrinkles: If you mix honey with avocado you’ll get the most powerful anti-wrinkle mask which will restore the youthfulness and hydrate your skin after the first application. Mash half an avocado (ripe) and mix it with one tablespoon of organic honey. Mix it all thoroughly and apply it on your face. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and rinse with warm water.
Body Care
Repair damaged cuticles: If you have damaged cuticles they can be a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus and are a sore for your eyes. Honey can help you resolve this problem and restore your cuticles. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey with one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and apply it on your nails and cuticles. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse.
Sooth razor burns: We often have irritated skin and razor burns after shaving but honey is here for the rescue. Apply some organic honey on your irritated areas and leave it on for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
