5 Ways you can use honey to pamper yourself this winter

Jul 1, 2020 | Natural Remedies

We believe that if Cleopatra was around today, she would have preferred Simply Bee Raw Fynbos honey as her secret weapon in her beauty arsenal. We don’t need to look to science to prove that raw honey is a fantastic versatile and all-natural ingredient to use on your skin and hair. Try these ideas

Cleopatra’s milk & honey bath:
Combine 60ml raw honey with 2 cups of milk and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Add to a hot bath, sit back and relax.

Simple honey mask:
Scoop a generous spoonful of honey into your hand and spread it all over your face. Rub it in gently and let sit on your skin for 5 – 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.

Super moisturising mask:
Combine 1 tablespoon buttermilk, 1 teaspoon simply bee raw honey and 1 egg yolk. Apply to clean skin and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Apply your favorite simply bee moisturiser.

Honey facial cleanser:
Combine honey and Jojoba/Coconut oil to create an easily spreadable mixture. Rub it into your skin, avoiding your eye area. Rinse with warm water. This cleanser unclogs pores and helps to remove make-up.

Honey Almond body scrub:
Not only finger licking good but also a perfectly natural spoil for your skin.
Combine 2 teaspoons ground almonds and 2 teaspoons simply bee raw honey to form a paste. Rub into your face with a circular motion. Rinse with warm water. You can easily just increase the quantities for a moisturising body scrub.

Lemon honey facial treatment:
This one is a bit different. Lemons are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. They also contain alpha hydroxy acids that works beautifully as an exfoliator.
Cut 1 lemon in half and remove the seeds. Add 1 teaspoon of honey to one of the lemon halves and rub the cut side over your face. Let it sit for 5 minutes and rinse with warm water. Follow with your favorite simply bee moisturiser.
