OoOhhhhh Honeyyyyyy!!!

The Bees Knees…

I’ve had a fascination with honey in beauty treatments over the past year…

It started when I tried a beauty mask with my friend Josanne. We combined honey, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a mason jar, applied it on our faces (I put too much on and ended up getting it down my shirt, dripping down my nose, all over the place and had to shower and wash my clothes because I made a big mess. Basically… I looked really sexy… I’ve since learned a thin layer is the way to go haha).

Also, writing this made me think of the “Oh, Honey” episode of How I Met Your Mother https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TD2RC1Lw6tQ.

After leaving it on for 30 minutes and gently exfoliating with it while I rinsed it off in cool water I instantly saw results. My skin was exfoliated, softer, brighter, and smoother. My friend experienced the same results and it’s been our new favorite thing. She was even planning on trying a microdermabrasion treatment and liked this so much she decided not to do it.

We went to a wedding in Lake Lure last year together and I brought our special honey mask along in a mason jar so we could make our skin look good and drink champagne simultaneously.

Honey is moisturizing, cleansing, exfoliating, diminishes marks/scars, and brightens. It’s also a natural healer for many skin/health problems. Some other benefits listed here. I’ve even heard of people using only honey to wash their faces with.

Cinnamon works to eliminate any redness (anti-inflammatory) and tightens pores, exfoliates. (Cinnamon tea is good for your skin)

Nutmeg exfoliates and is said to make your skin glow. I’ve run errands without makeup after washing it off and had people say I look like I’m glowing.

All of these I believe are good for your skin internally and externally. I normally do this mask once a week but I don’t think you can really do it too often everyone I’ve had try it has been pleased with the results. While I’m washing my face I exfoliate my hands while I’m at it.

Warning: May want to stay away from puppies and bears while wearing honey
