Four Beauty Uses For Honey

The Sweetest Thing: Four Beauty Uses For Honey

MMMMM, honey. It's by far my favorite sweetener, and Winnie the Pooh will forever be my first love. But I didn't realize, until recently, that honey is also a pretty darn good beauty product. I've put together four tips for using honey in your beauty routine; to get all sugared up, read on.

  • Honey has antiseptic properties, so pour a half cup in the tub if you're having breakouts or got sunburned. Mix in some oatmeal bath as well to calm down irritated skin.
  • Honey softens thick skin and helps kill odor-causing bacteria, so try a honey foot mask. Warm up about a quarter cup in the microwave, then apply a thin layer to your feet. Keep it on for about 15 minutes, or until it's cool.
  • Honey makes a very gentle spot treatment for pimples when you don't have any benzoyl peroxide handy or don't want to use any chemicals that might further inflame skin.
  • Honey is a natural humectant, so it's also good for softening leg or underarm hair before shaving. Massage some on, wait a couple minutes, then rinse it off and shave. I like this one because my underarms always get irritated by the perfume in shaving gel.
