Aside its sweet taste, here are 10 other reasons we love HONEY

We all love honey, its sweet, its sweet and its sweet…need I say more. But what if I told you honey could cure your acne, and your scars and your wrinkles…well don’t take my word for it, try it out.

Moisturiser
Honey is very soothing, hydrating and moisturising. Use raw honey as a facial mask to reap it’s benefits.

Hair lightener
Honey has a natural bleaching effect and this makes it an effective hair lightener. To get the desired effect, mix 1 tbsp of raw honey with 6 tbsp of distilled water and apply it to your hair. Rinse off after one hour. For faster results, do this weekly.

Acne
Honey’s anti- bacterial properties make it an excellent cleanser for acne. Apply some raw honey to the affected area and rinse off after 10-15 mins.

Anti-aging
Honey is rich in antioxidants so a tbsp of honey a day keeps the radicals at bay. Delay the aging process by making honey a part of your heathy diet. You can also smear honey on your face to get rid of wrinkles and other anti-aging signs.

Nail conditioner
Honey strengthens your nails and softens your cuticles. Mix a TSP of honey with a TSP of apple cider vinegar and apply to your nails and cuticles. Riñse off after ten minutes.

Scars
Honey had a bleaching effect so regular use of honey on the affected area can frantically fade old or new scars.

Dark circles
Honey fades dark circles when applied topically. Take a TSP of raw honey and apply it to affected area, rinse off after 20 minutes. Do this twice weekly until the dark circles fade.

Hair conditioner
Honey’s moisturising and softening properties make it a wonderful hair conditioner. It also gives shine to dull hair. Mix 1 tbsp raw honey with 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and use you hands to evenly disperse the mixture throughout your hair. Rinse off after 20-30 minutes.

Lip scrub
Honey makes a wonderful lip scrub. So if you want soft and smooth lips mix 1 TSP raw honey with 1 TSP brown sugar and few drops of lemon juice and apply to your lips. Gently exfoliate after five minutes

Eczema
Honey’s antiinflammatory properties help calm eczema prone skin. Apply some raw honey to the affected area and rinse off after 20 minutes.
