I am pretty sure that every Indian girl has got advises from grandmothers or mother about natural skin care remedies at some point of their lives. Be it a skin care or hair care, elders in the family always have a remedy for it. Many times we ignore thinking it’s just a bogus as we get carried away with TV commercials about chemical based cosmetic products. But at some point of the time we just go back to try out our elder’s advises and we simply give up and agree for our age old home remedies.
In recent years I started developing dry skin and I tried many skin products which would moisturize my skin. At first everything worked out but as days passed my dry skin problem just escalated and didn’t show any signs of going away.
Once I was too down and discussed my dry skin problem to my mother. She advised me to use honey on my skin. Though I was skeptical about using honey on my skin, I gave a shot thinking, I got nothing to lose.

How I used Honey on My skin?
At first, I would just apply raw honey on my skin and leave it for 15-20 minutes before I wash my face and get on with my day. I started noticing visibly better skin from day two.
This visibly noticing change made me curious and started my Google research about honey.  
Beauty benefits of honey
Honey is a natural humectant and it helps in giving required moisture to your skin.
Honey has a anti-bacterial properties which eventually reduces acne caused by bacteria.
Enzymes present in honey acts as a natural pore cleansers.
Honey also acts as gentle exfoliator.
Honey also lightens your skin naturally and helps to fade away scars.
Honey As face wash
Take a table spoon of honey, mix it with raw milk or rose water, add gram flour (Besan), pinch of turmeric. Use this mixture as a face wash to see visibly noticing better skin.
Honey as Face scrub
Take 2 parts of sugar and add enough honey to get medium thick consistency. Honey naturally moisturizes the skin, and reduces the brown spots and blemishes.  Use it on your face and gently scrub in circular motion. Leave it for 10-15 min on face and wash it off.
 Honey as Face Pack
Add gram flour (Besan) + pinch of turmeric + 1 spoon of honey. Mix this ingredients and apply on your face regularly to notice blemish free, hydrated skin.
