Honey isn’t just a term of endearment—it’s a potent medicinal ingredient that’s also used in many cosmetics today. This amber liquid contains fructose, glucose, minerals, magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium chlorine and vitamins B1 to B5. Honey is used to treat anemia, allergies, exhaustion and can now be found in many nourishing body lotions and facial masks. Natural honey is safe for sensitive skin and is proven to be effective in eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. It retains moisture and prevents your skin from dehydrating, making this perfect for the harsh winter weather. For those with acne-prone skin, you can use honey to treat skin discolorations and fight pimples.

Beauty Tip: Use honey as a substitute for sugar whenever you can; Try honey as an alternative, natural, face moisturizer.
