Honey is one of the natural products that have many uses and it is one of the most underused product ever because most people believe that honey is just meant to be consumed as food without realising it has so many usages. Aside to being a rich source of nutrients which are good for the body when eaten, honey is also very good for a healthy skin and hair.
Below are some of the benefits of honey to the skin and hair.
Promotes hair growth: “Due to its humectant form, honey can help regulate and retain moisture in your hair and it can also strengthen the hair follicles, resulting in healthier growth”.
Enriches the skin texture: “If you’re looking to maintain a particular colour for your skin, using honey will help you do just that; honey is soothing to the skin. It neutralizes, tones, and balances oil in your skin”.
Cleanse the skin: “Honey can help cleanse the skin, and rid it of dirt without tampering with its natural oils; with artificial cleansers, you may experience a loss of this natural oil, and that is not so good because it’s meant to protect the skin”.
It’s a remedy for skin infection: “Honey contains properties that help to rid the skin of common and obnoxious diseases like eczema and rashes”.
Reduces skin breakage: “Honey contains natural anti-bacterial properties that help to prevent breakout on the skin, as well as keep pimples and acne away”.
“When applied to the skin regularly, honey can help lighten it, heal dead skin tissues (cells), and help cover up scars and dark spots”.
