Helpful Skin Tips Using Honey

Who doesn’t want soft, clear skin? Sue Bee® honey and Aunt Sue’s® honey can be a great way to help give your skin that boost you’ve been looking for. Pamper yourself at home with these simple, helpful DIY beauty recipes using ingredients that may already be in your pantry.

Facial Masks

Mix together 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of buttermilk and 1 egg yolk and then apply the mixture to a clean face using circular motions. Then sit back and relax. Rinse with warm water after 20 minutes.

Facial Treatment

For a simple facial treatment, start by slicing a lemon in half and removing the seeds. Add 1 teaspoon of honey to one of the lemon halves and rub it on your face. Let sit for five minutes, then rinse with warm water.

Facial Cleanser

Say goodbye to makeup residue. Use honey and coconut oil to create a spreadable mixture and rub it directly onto your skin. The ingredients will work together to help loosen the makeup. Rinse with warm water after all the makeup is removed.

Body Scrub

Try not to eat too much of this natural body scrub before you apply it your skin! Combine equal parts honey and ground almonds to form a paste. Rub it on your face, arms, legs or wherever you choose before rinsing with warm water.

Exfoliate Skin

Mix two parts honey with one part baking soda to create a skin exfoliator that can be used on your entire body twice a week.

Skin Lotion

Create your own skin lotion to help prevent dry skin by mixing 1 tablespoon of honey with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and a drop or two of lemon juice. Rub the lotion on dry skin – or areas that are prone to being dry – and let sit for 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water or using a warm, damp washcloth to wipe the area dry.

Bath Soak

Dissolve 1 cup honey in a cup of boiling water before adding 2 cups milk. Draw yourself a bath and dissolve 1/2 cup sea salt and 2 tablespoons baking soda in the warm water. Add the honey-milk mixture to the bathwater along with 10 drops of vanilla oil. Spread the mixture throughout the bath and soak for up to 30 minutes.
