Beautiful Skin using DIY Raw Honey Moisturizer

 

Honey as a moisturizer? Yes! Honey is perhaps the best moisturizing natural ingredient available that does wonders for your skin. Our ancestors and forefathers have been using honey as a moisturizer for ages. 

Until mass produced cosmetics came into being, honey was universally used as a moisturizer. Even today, most moisturizers comprise of honey as a one of their major ingredients. 

For the skin to be soft and healthy, it needs to be well hydrated at all times. In certain climatic conditions or environmental stresses, the skin tends to become dry because it isn't able to retain any water and hence starts to become scaly and itchy. Honey as a moisturizer is basically a humectant that means it can attract and retain water. 

Honey also works as a natural anti-oxidant. So, apart from honey as a moisturizer, it can also help protect the skin from UV damage and in rejuvenation. 

Tasmanian Honey with Yogurt Honey Moisturizer

Create  your own easy DIY Honey Moisturizer 

Combine 4 tbsp all natural yoghurt , 1 tsp honey, and 2 tbsp grape seed oil. Apply to clean skin and let sit 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water. 

It is important to use only good raw honey (even to apply on skin) to enjoy all the beauty benefits of honey. I personally like Tasmanian Honey Company Meadow Honey for its mild floral scent and beautifully smooth texture.

For those who are more familiar with Manuka, the question that comes into mind is always "Manuka vs raw honey for face, which is better?"  We personally feel that if one has the financial budget to use Manuka honey, by all means!
