04 Oct Bee beautiful, honey!
So, let’s talk about honey! First off, I love honey! I love it so much that I worked on several projects with the National Honey Board to educate men and women about countless benefits and uses of honey. Honey is pretty much mother nature’s gift to us – it’s full of enzymes, minerals, vitamins and amino acids. Besides being a natural sweetener, a great source of energy, and a powerful remedy for colds and sore throats, honey is also a wonderful nourishment for skin and hair. In fact, many companies use honey as their main ingredient in anything from moisturizers and conditioners to soaps and cleansers.
But why buy these products when you can make them at home by simply opening your kitchen pantry? There are so many great recipes out there for making great products yourself. Here are a few of my favorites:
1) The Pomegranate Mask:
This mask is especially great for oily skin. It brightens the skin, leaving it fresh and protected.
2) The Lip Scrub:
This scrub is perfect for the cold weather that’s right around the corner. It exfoliates, hydrates, and preps lips for a perfect lipstick application.
