Hi Honey, Your Beautiful!

Would you use honey on your face and skin?  Well when I normally think of using honey, its not for beauty treatments.  I love honey, in my hot tea, peanut butter sandwiches, with my yogurt parfait...but rarely do I use it for my face. A couple weeks ago while attending Lucky FABB conference, I was invited to a spa day at Ciel Spa in the SLS Hotel by the National Honey Board.  During my visit at the Ciel Spa, which is very swanky by the way, we learned all about the different uses for honey other than just eating it. 

I have heard of people using honey for beauty treatments before, but never tried it until the day at the spa. Honey has been used as a beauty ingredient for centuries. It's not a new concept or idea, but just something I never tried. One thing I learned as well is honey is antimicrobial and antibacterial, also excellent at retaining moisture in your skin.  Honeys sweetness and stickiness makes great for facials and mask, which we experienced during our visit at the spa.

During our visit at the Ciel Spa we were given a little lesson on honey's properties and uses as beauty treatments.  The better known uses are obliviously for the skin and mainly facials.  We were also told about and treated to scrubs using honey for our feet. Honey scrubs are excellent to exfoliate dead skin and help keep your feet moisturized, this is especially important now that its sandals season!  We were also given a recipe for a hair treatment using honey and coconut oil/milk.  Using honey will make your hair smooth and shiny, while the coconut oil promotes hair growth and can prevent hair loss.  I really need to try this ASAP, such an easy and natural way to care for your hair. Oh did I mention how yummy the honey smells too!! 

Below are two of the recipes we tried at the spa, using honey. A mask and a scrub, both of which can be used all over your body, not just the face.

Would you ever use honey as a beauty treatment? 
 Do you have any recipes using honey for beauty treatments?
 Please share ask I want to try them all!

  1. I was so sorry to miss the Spa Day. :( On the other hand one of my favorite treatments is very easy to make:

    2 tablespoons of honey and the juice of two limes. Mix well and spread over your face. Leave on for about 10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.

    It brightens the skin and evens the complexion. I usually just refrigerate any leftovers. I'll have to try out one of these recipes!
