You can not always go to a SPA to receive sophisticated beauty treatments. But thinking about it, it may not be necessary. In the house itself you can perform equal or more effective treatments using a total natural product, honey.
Honey has moisturizing and soothing properties that will allow us to use it as a cosmetic
To obtain a cleansing product based on honey you have to mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 2 tablespoons of almond powder. Mix these two products well and add lemon juice squeezed until it forms a light paste. Apply the result on the face with gentle massage and then remove it with hot water.
Facial tonic of honey
In a blender, we take 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 apple without skin or heart. We spread on the face gently and let it act for 15 minutes. After a while, wash your face with cold water.
Face mask honey firming
Mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon of glycerin (sold in drugstores) and beat everything. Once beaten, add flour little by little at the same time that we stir until reaching a semi-liquid paste. We extend the mask on the face and neck and let it act for 12 minutes. After the time we remove with hot water.
Honey softener bath
This technique was very used by the ancient Egyptians and consists of a bath of warm water to which we have included honey. We add 50 ml of honey to the water, and get a fragrant, pleasant bath that leaves the skin silky. Here you have prepared honey foam.
Honey softening conditioner for the skin
Mix 1 tablespoon of mielk with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a few drops of lemon juice. We extend by the hands, elbows, heels and any place where the honey is dry. We let act ten minutes and remove with warm water
Honey conditioner for hair
Mix half a cup of honey with 50 ml. of olive oil. Massage until hair is well covered. We cover the head with a shower cap and let act for half an hour. Then wash head and dry. This is already made with propolis.
Soothing skin for honey-based skin (non-severe acne)
Mix 150 ml. of hot water with a pinch of salt and apply directly on the grains using a cotton ball. We have to keep the pressure with the wet cotton on each grain for several minutes to soften it. Once this process is done, with a cotton sponge we apply the honey and let it act for 10 minutes. Finally wash and let dry.
These are a series of homemade cosmetics made with honey in an artisan way, that each person can try at home. We hope that they have the expected effect on your skin.
