New You Beauty Tip: 100% pure honey is a sweet skin saver every women should try. 

Honey—this golden liquid has been part of skin care routines since the days of Cleopatra and Helen of Troy. As a natural humectant, honey attracts and retains moisture to help hydrate the skin without adding unnecessary oil. Research shows that when applied to the skin, it can breakdown the scar tissue and make it more elastic, smoothing out fine lines and reducing the appearance of stretch marks. For skin perfecting, scar relief you can taste, try these simple recipes:

For Smoothing: In a bowl, mix honey with two teaspoons of fresh lemon juice. Apply to the face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

For Acne: Sprinkle 1/4 cinnamon into the palm of your hand. Add 1/4 teaspoon of honey and mix into a paste. Dab it on the infected area or acne prone areas. Leave it on for 15 minutes and rinse with warm water.
