Honey Good Your Skin
Honey face mask benefits
A simple and brilliant prescription based on honey which has always been used for unlimited remedial purposes before its recent introduction into the world of cosmetics.
Honey, as research and studies say, contains one fifth of its weight in water. It also contains protein, a compound of vitamins B and C, sodium, potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, magnesium, and a certain amount of copper, phosphorus, and Sulphur. It also contains carbohydrates which make up approximately four-fifths of its content.
Hence cosmetics manufacturers have started to use honey in many of their products. This has even reached high end salons which use honey with special mixtures for various purposes:
- Purity and radiance of the skin
- To make the hair grow and stop hair loss
- Treating damaged hair
- Treating freckles
- Whitening the teeth and protecting the gums.
To whiten the teeth with honey, we must rub the teeth with it once every morning; this will brighten them and protect their health and that of the gums.
For a Youthful look
About the skin, a mixture of honey and yoghurt may be prepared and used as a cream on the hands to increase their softness. Using a mixture of honey and rose water in a certain proportion as a face mask, makes the face smooth and gives it a youthful look. This mask may be used after cleansing the face with olive oil, applying it with a piece of cotton and wiping the face well with it, then spreading this mixture on the entire face except the eyes, and leaving it for a quarter of an hour, then the face is washed with water only, without using soap, but making sure the water is warm, after that the face is dried with a soft towel.
This face mask will be more beneficial if it is used regularly once or twice a week.
For Lighter Colour
Wiping the face with a little cucumber juice mixed with honey and leaving it for half an hour once every week, will give regular or dry skin a lighter colour. With oily skin, orange juice mixed with honey is used once a week and left for 20 minutes. This will remove the oils and lighten the skin at the same time.
To remove freckles, a mixture of honey and vinegar to which a little salt has been added should be applied to the affected areas only. This is guaranteed to remove the freckles if used regularly for a limited time, or until an improvement is seen.
