Honey-Based Beauty Treatments

Here are a couple of super-easy, all-natural, honey-based skin treatments made using ingredients you probably already have stocked in your cupboard.

Honey-Oat Facial Scrub

The oats are a gentle way to scrub away dead skin cells while the honey coats and protects skin. Lemon serves as a natural astringent.

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp ground almonds
  • 2 tbsps dry, raw oats
  • squeeze of lemon

Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Sample if you’d like (it’s delish). Massage onto face in circular motion. Rinse with warm water.

Honey-Apple Toner

The honey soothes and nourishes, while the acid in the apple gently tones skin.

  • 1 apple, cored and peeled
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • squeeze of lemon

Combine apple and honey in a blender and pulse until it reaches the consistency of apple sauce. Spread mixture over face and allow it to stay for 15 minutes, then rinse.
