Honey’s often thought of as a healthier sweetener, but you might be surprised to learn that this ingredient has tons of skin and hair benefits, too.
There are many surprising natural skin care ingredients/products hiding in your kitchen and garden. At present, I am using more than 20 kitchen products to retain and enhance my beauty. Skin is your largest organ and can absorb just about anything that is put on it. We always think about what we eat but hardly think about those commercial beauty products. I always prefer to use natural ingredients from my kitchen because they work really well and are chemical free and simple to use. I have a list of my favorite healthy beauty products that will leave you glowing from the inside out. The first one I shared was Sugar, Salt(Read my other articles) and in this post I would like to talk about Honey. I keep locally produced honey all year long as my older son has pollen allergy. Research shows that locally produced honey can help sooth allergies and other common sicknesses.
