Honey And Skin Care

While many know that honey can be used for healing wounds, did you also know raw honey can also benefit your skin when used as part of your regular skincare routine? 

Especially during the summer, our skin is exposed to the sun’s harsh rays or the drying effects of air conditioning. Known for its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, raw honey decreases inflammation and repairs damaged tissues.

6 ways raw honey can help our skin

Raw honey can specifically help our skin in the following ways:

  1. acts as a humectant, moisturising and hydrating the skin
  2. heals chapped lips
  3. helps diminish wrinkles
  4. treats sun damage
  5. heals skin conditions like acne scars, skin pigmentation and psoriasis
  6. exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving a healthy glow

Honey recipes for the skin

Here we share some raw honey-based home remedies that will up your skincare game in no time.

Honey and milk face mask

Honey and milk are both known to deeply moisturise the skin. Vitamin A present in milk treats dry, flaky skin while lactic acid and honey together help your skin look youthful and healthy.

  1. In a bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of Yemeni Sidr Do’ani Raw Blossom Honey and 2 tablespoons of milk
  2. Dip a cotton ball into the mixture and dab your face with it
  3. Once your entire face is covered, let it rest and dry for 10-15 minutes
  4. Wash with warm water and pat dry
  5. Moisturise your face

Honey and lemon face mask

Lemon brightens, exfoliates, and controls oil, while honey moisturizes, fights bacteria, and provides gentle exfoliation. Incorporating these ingredients into your skincare routine can lead to a healthier, more radiant complexion.

  1. In a bowl, mix a tablespoon of Blossom Honey Emirati Sidr Raw Honey and 1 teaspoon of squeezed lemon juice
  2. Apply the honey and lemon mixture on your face. Let it rest for 20minutes
  3. Wash it off with warm water
  4. Moisturise your face

Honey, Aloe Vera, and Cinnamon face mask

Both aloe vera and cinnamon have antibacterial properties that can help control and reduce acne-causing bacteria. By combining these two natural ingredients with honey for an at-home spa treatment, you’ll be increasing your chances of smooth, pimple-free skin.
