Honey is usually considered as nothing but a healthier type of sweetener, but there are many other benefits that raw honey provides that don’t involve using it as an ingredient to cooking or mixing with beverages. It’s equally as great to eat as it is to apply to your skin. Honey is capable of fighting bacteria, reducing the effects of aging, and moisturizing. It contains an enormous amount of antioxidants, nutrients, and other compounds to heal and rejuvenate. The trick is to using raw honey that hasn’t been pasteurized or treated with heat. Buying honey from the grocery store can be a bit of a gamble because it’s hard to know for sure what you are getting. Raw honey contains more antioxidants and enzymes than treated honey, and here are some things you can try to give yourself your very own personal spa treatment:
Pore cleansing – Raw honey contains enzymes and antibacterial properties that can help clean your pores and keep them clean. It also helps for clearing acne and reduces redness and irritation of the skin because of its anti-inflammatory properties
