Honey....honey.....honey

Hey beautiful people!

I can't believe how fast today is. Wasn't it just a few minutes ago that i woke up and prepared to leave for my kids school for our termly parents/teachers conference? At the meeting, we usually get updates on their performances so far, and i always look forward to it. Dindu has improved so much....i can't believe how much he knows! MishMish....well, Mish just started school this term, and her teachers say she's doing well too.

Don't mind me, i know this has nothing to do with you, but the parents among you would understand how proud i feel right now........as in i can totally stop a stranger on the road and regale him or her with stories about my kids school work.....yeah, i'm that excited! If you aren't a parent yet, don't worry....in a short while, you will be (amen), and then you will totally understand.

So i mentioned how fast today is......hmnnn......can't believe it's 1pm already. I haven't even eaten today *stomach rumbles*

Today's post is about honey. I know that facials fridays are over, but i discovered more things about honey and thought to share with you all. Have you ever wondered why virtually all the natural facials recipes i posted here contained honey as one of the major ingredients?

Here's why.........

*** Honey is a natural remedy to prevent wrinkles because it slows down the ageing process

*** Honey contains properties which protects your skin under the sun and assists your skin in rejuvenating and staying young.

*** Honey is a very effective moisturizer for the skin. It retains moisture, making your skin supple, soft, and radiant. Some body creams are actually made of honey.

*** Honey is also a good cleanser for the skin because it soaks up impurities from your pores and leaves your skin clean and clear.

*** Honey is an antiseptic because when diluted with water, it produces hydrogen peroxide which can be used as a mild antiseptic.

*** Honey can be used to treat cuts, wounds and abrasions.


Wonderful abi?!

HOW TO MOISTURIZE YOUR FACE WITH HONEY

Now, did you know that you can use just honey all over your face as a facial mask/moisturizer? I mean....why not? See all the benefits it has above. Here are the steps on how to do it below......
  • Get a very good jar or bottle of honey.
  • Wet your hands (so that the honey won't stick so much) and smear a layer of honey all over your face.
  • Leave it on for at least 30 minutes.
  • Wash your face and pat dry.

If your skin is sensitive, you should warm the honey up a 'lil bit before using it. Doing this at least once a week will leave your skin moisturized, glowing and clean.

Remember that if you want, you can mix other natural ingredients to the honey, depending on your skin's needs. Click here to see the recipes i shared here in the past.

However, i didn't share the Avocado/honey mask. This mask is the ideal facial mask for dry skin since avocado is a rich source of natural oils. This avocado/honey mask will nourish and moisture your dry skin and improve the complexion.




INGREDIENTS

1/2 of an avocado....make sure its very ripe and soft
1/4 cup of honey


PREPARATION

Mash your avocado into a creamy pulp in a bowl.

Mix in your honey.

Apply on your face and leave for at least 20 minutes.

  5. Aaaaaaah! Yes princess, Ori is very good for dry skin. Buy it if possible.
    Then when doing your facials, try using honey alone as a mask, or you can mix with avocado.
