When it comes to beauty regimes, women everywhere are on the never-ending hunt for ways we can keep our skin looking young and vibrant. This summer I’m partnering with The National Honey Board to help spread the word about honey’s usages outside of your kitchen.
Did you know that honey is an anti-irritant? So for those of you with sensitive skin and acne, honey is a preferred ingredient to help manage breakouts while keeping your skin moisturized.
I personally have dry skin and I moisturize with lotions every morning and night. Honey actually attracts and retains moisture and may keep away early signs of aging, like wrinkles, by maintaining proper moisture.
So let me show you how I have started using honey for my skin. I make a mask- an Oatmeal Calmative Milk and Honey Moisturizing Mask. (Say that 5 times fast!) Here’s how you do it:
Grab your ingredients.
(These are all things I keep on hand- I love it when I don’t have to buy any crazy ingredients!)
- ½ cup – oatmeal, uncooked
- ½ cup – water
- ½ cup – milk
- 1 tablespoon – pure honey
***“Pure Honey” contains just one ingredient—honey. Read the label: there should be no other ingredients or sweeteners in pure honey
In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook oatmeal, water, milk and honey for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently with a spatula or spoon. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Massage a thick layer of plain honey all over your clean face and neck before applying mask. Apply mask to your face with upward strokes. Lie down and relax for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove and rinse by using a soft facial wash cloth and warm water.
And that’s it- fresh, clean and moisturized skin. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
