15 Brilliant Beauty Uses For Honey
Hello Natural writes:
Honey has so many natural healing properties for our skin, hair and face. Because it’s naturally antibacterial and acts as a humectant, meaning it draws in moisture to the skin, honey is used in lots of homemade beauty recipes. We love its moisturizing effects and ability to wipe out zit-causing bacteria.

This ish right here! It’s pretty damn amazing, powerful, yummy and a must have.
Yes, it’s honey but not just any honey. It’s a healing honey that can be used internally (via spoonfuls or in tea) or externally (on hair, skin, cuts).
My partner suffers from cystic acne. NOTHING was working to help reduce his painful bumps (or scars that were left behind by past breakouts). We did some research and I KNEW manuka honey would pop up. He’s been using it for over 2 months and I am proud to say his acne is under control, his scars have faded and some have even disappeared.
How he uses it (nightly):
-smears about 1 tablespoon all over his face and leaves it on for 15-30 minutes.
-takes a warm rag and removes the honey from his face.
-rinses with cold water
I’ve been using this honey on my hair (when I had hair) and in my tea for over a year. Now, since my head is shaved, I use it on my scalp after my haircuts to minimize itching and flaking. I leave it on for about 15 mins before rinsing.
I love this stuff. You know what’s funny? It actually smells like medicated honey, even though nothing is added to it. It’s crazy how the earth and it’s workers (the bees) can produce such magic!
Manuka honey isn’t cheap BUT it’s worth the 26 bucks.
We got ours from Amazon. It’s cheaper there than at Wholefoods or Roots Market.
I highly suggest you research it if you’re struggling with acne or acne scars. And in general, having this honey a part of your diet and/or holistic health regimen is pretty damn awesome.
Google it. Thank me later. xoxoxo

If you have oily or acne-prone skin, most likely you’re using a cleanser that is a little on the acidic or antibacterial side of the pH scale. But if you have dry or sensitive skin you most likely are using a cleanser on the alkaline or softening side of the pH scale. A toner helps equalize the skin’s pH after cleansing, bringing it back to it’s natural level. We want our skin to be at it’s natural pH level as much of the time as possible.
Toners can also help remove any leftover makeup or oily residue. A toner’s purpose can be two fold, both balancing and extra cleansing. Toners don’t only have to be used with a cotton ball, they can also be spritzed all over your face and neck.
And yes! It’s safe to make your own. I’ve put together 3 great toner recipes you can make at home – find the right recipe for your skin!Find the 3 recipes here.
Fight Summer Breakouts Naturally
Henry Happened writes:
Summertime for most means more sunshine, adventures, pool days, beach time — and, unfortunately, extra summer breakouts. Why do we break out in summer more than other seasons? As temperatures rise, so does our oil and sweat gland activity. They are working overtime to keep our body temperatures cool. Add in extra sunscreen applications and longer days spent outside in the elements, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for a summer breakout. I’ve put together a few tips and tricks for combating breakouts in the summer

Cucumber Uses & Benefits
During the summer months, there is one ingredient that I always like to have on hand: Cucumbers.
They are crisp, refreshing, and the ways you can use them (both in meals and in your beauty routine) are seemingly endless. Cucumbers are about 95% water, so just eating them on their own can help keep your body hydrated – they’re also a great source of Vitamin B, which gives you a nice little energy boost. And, another great side effect of eating a few cucumber slices in the morning? They contain chemicals that help kill of bacteria in your mouth, making your breath fresher and mouth cleaner. Here are some other great ways (skin, hair, drink, etc) to use cucumbers!
