Honey – an essential ingredient in every kitchen, not only tastes good, but has several health benefits. In addition, it is very useful for your skincare routine-for all skin types.
The easiest way to make your skin glow is by using a honey face mask. Ithelps your skin retain moisture to combat dryness. Honey is also rich in antioxidants that help in forming new skin cells to fight ageing. Moreover, it is naturally antibacterial so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention. Apart from these, honey also acts as a gentle exfoliator and pore cleanser to give you a clearer complexion. Thus, honey is a powerhouse for skincare!
