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. 

                                                       

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.
