Honey

Honey is a humectant, which means that it attracts & retains water.

Cleansing Scrub: Mix 1 tablespoon honey with 2 tablespoons of finely ground almonds & 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice. Gently rub this mixture on your face. Rinse with warm water. This scrub exfoliates the skin & the honey moisturises & adds a glow to your face.

Skin Clarifier: Mix 1/2 a cup of warm water with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a cotton ball, apply directly to blemish. Maintain pressure with cotton ball for several minutes to soften the blemish. Using a cotton swab dab honey on the blemish. leave it for 10 minutes. Rinse & pat dry.

Firming face mask: Whisk together 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon glycerin & enough gram flour to form a paste. Apply this paste over your face & neck, leave it on for 10 minutes. Wash off with warm water. Hint: You can substitute egg white with 1 teaspoon corn flour or corn starch.

Honey tonic: Add 1 tablespoon honey & the juice of 1 lemon to lukewarm water. Drink this daily in the morning on an empty stomach to keep your skin shiny & smooth.

Skin softening bath: Add 1/4th cup honey to bath water for a fragrant & silky bath
