Healthy Skin Benefits of Honey

Honey acts a natural moisturizer and helps your skin maintain its softness, suppleness and elasticity. Honey is also a humectant that attracts and retains water thus naturally moisturizing your skin and lending it a natural glow. This is what makes honey a popular ingredient for hair, body and face products. Honey has been known to help rid the skin of blemishes and aid in flushing out toxins. It's also an effective treatment for minor abrasions, burns and is an anti-irritant so it's beneficial for people with sensitive skin.

1/2 tsp of coconut oil

Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl. Dampen face with a warm wash cloth and apply mixture to face.  Work the mixture in circular motions. Rinse face off with warm water. Don't forget to tone and moisturize afterward.
