Why honey is great for more than sweetening your tea!

Why honey is great for more than sweetening your tea!

This morning, as I nibbled on a piece of toast topped with whipped honey, I was reminded honey is so much more than a delicious spread for my morning toast. When used in skin care treatments, it can also prevent dry skin and a host of other skin problems. 

Honey is loaded with antioxidants that not only slow down aging but give your complexion a boost of nutrients and enzymes that nourish and heal skin, and it's a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture into the skin and ensures it's retained where it's needed most for penetrating and long-lasting hydration.

The enzymes in honey clarify skin and keep pores clear and clean. Plus, the antibacterial properties of honey prevent bacterial buildup that can lead to skin imbalances and breakouts.

Here's a home recipe for a honey masque:

Stir one tablespoon raw honey with two tablespoons jojoba oil or coconut oil until the mixture is a spreadable consistency. Apply to clean, dry skin, and massage gently in a circular motion, avoiding your eye area. Rinse with tepid water.

Keeping it real, at one time, we carried a honey masque in our Parisian's Pure Indulgence skin care line. Personally, I loved it.  Frankly, it didn't sell well.  Why?  I make up it's because it's sticky and difficult to get off completely.  It takes some effort.

We introduced another masque into our line that is well loved, called Radiance.  But, honey is a key ingredient in our Creme Fraiche Facial Cleanser and this cleanser is wildly popular.  You get all the wonderful benefits of honey in an easy to use (and rinse) cleanser.  

Have you used honey in your skin care routine--tried making a home masque yourself?  We would love to hear from you, if you have.

Thank you for this recipe. I have not used honey in this way before. I do use it in my home made lip balm and on problem spots. I will give this a try. Great article, very informative. I love the Creme Fraiche Cleanser, best facial cleanser I have ever tried, a must have.

We all know our skin ages, sometimes faster than we would like. There are two main reasons our skin ages known as Intrinsic and Extrinsic aging. 

Intrinsic or Genetics - contribute to how fast we age. Most of us show signs of aging in our late 40's to early 50's. 

Extrinsic or External Factors - These include environmental, free radical sun damage, and stress.

Free radical and sun damage accounts for 90% of early signs of aging. Seriously, it's that high!

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
