Honey, I’m home and putting you all over my face! Why, you may ask? Because honey is fabulous for your skin.
It’s what’s known as a humectant – a substance that actually draws water to itself and holds it there, therefore proving moisturization for you and your skin.
Honey is an antioxidant rich food, especially the darker varieties like buckwheat (just like the darker vegetables and fruits provide more carotenoids). So putting honey on your face can protect you from the damages of those nasty free radicals from pollution and too much sun that make you look older and wrinkled.
Honey provides the food that keeps the bees humming and it can do that also for you and your skin. Honey is antibacterial and an antifungal agent that helps to speed up the healing process of wounds, scars and burns and has also been found to be helpful in reducing minor acne problems.
So if you want your face to beeeeee beeeeautiful, try some honey based facial products (like our Banana Honey Mask).
