- I am seeing more and more products that have a twist of honey lately. So naturally I wanted understand the benefits of honey and see what all the craze was about. I was very surprised on what I learned after I did some research.
My go to forever has been coconut oil, I live on it, but honey has some similar benefits as my beloved coconut oil. For example, honey is also antibacterial, which is mostly why I’m addicted to coconut oil. By using something with antibacterial properties, someone with acne prone skin can see some major improvements to their complexion. Another great benefit of honey is that it’s great for clogged pores and the reason is because honey is a clarifying agent, which opens them right up. After hearing and researching all of that, I am sold, honey! In order to practice what I preach, I decided to add honey with coconut oil and use it as a make-up remover and OMG you have to try it. Here’s how:
Step 1- heat up the coconut oil to make it easier to mix
Step 2- combine the honey and liquefied coconut oil until the mixture is a loose paste
Step 3- apply to face and wait 2 min
Step 4- rinse
Step 5- Thank me 🙂
This combination left my skin soft with a perfect little glow. I also really liked how clean my face felt after this 2 minute miracle. The only negative I found with this mask is that you do have to REALLY scrub because it does not come off with ease, but remember to be gentle.
Now, here is where things get a little weird. When I went to the store to buy some honey there was so many options, who knew?! I also found that the price range was a huge difference, which begs the question, how do I know which to buy? The regular local honey or the “commercial” honey? Are they really very different from raw honey? I found out that commercial honey is pasteurized and filtered, which means a lot of the enzymes and nutrients are killed during the heating process, ok so that’s a no for me, I’ll choose the local honey. But wait one minute, whats the difference between raw and organic? Let me tell you; Organic honey means the bees collected nectar from flowers that have not been sprayed with pesticides. Hmm, I don’t know how I feel about that. So, I went with the raw for now. All I know for sure is that there are too many honey options for this luvbug!
Enjoy this amazing new mask 🙂
