Honey in skincare- Simple Face pack Recipes for Glowing Skin

Hi Beauties,

Today I am going to share with about one of my most favorite skincare product. Yes its honey. I love using honey for facepacks. This tip I got from my mom. While going to college and working I used to travel by two wheeler. So pollution used to make my skin very dull. My mom will suggest to apply honey for a few minutes and wash off. Then magic happens. My skin becomes fresh and bright. From then for any occasion I used to apply honey to get good brightening effect on my skin. Then I began to try many other face packs using honey.


I love honey. The best part about using honey is it very moisturising. And it does not feel sticky when you remove it too.

What wiki says:

Honey's natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties and ability to absorb and retain moisture have been recognised and used extensively in skin care treatments as they help to protect the skin from the damage of the sun's rays and rejuvenate depleted skin. Honey is also often used to treat acne, either dabbed directly on spots or as a face mask, and has been used successfully to treat diabetic foot ulcers.

The Myth:
Everytime I say to my friends I use honey and suggest to them, they give a look like Whaaat??? They used to tell me that when honey is applied on your hair it will turn grey. This is a complete myth. I have used honey for both skincare and hair care. I have never faced such a issue. Infact honey is a great conditioner to use for your hair. It will help you tame your frizz and gives moisture.

Face pack recipes:
These some of the face packs tried by me.

1. Only honey: Yes. A very simple face pack. Apply honey all over your face and neck avoiding your eye area. Leave it for some time and wash off. This will give your clean and soft skin. Great for people with dry skin. You can use this as a everyday cleanser. Regular use of honey will help to brighten your skin tone.

2. Honey and Sugar Scrub: One of the best winter scrubs I must say. Very simple but results are amazing. Mix honey and sugar, apply all over your face. You can leave it for 5 to 10 minutes or use circular motions to make sugar work on your skin. Wash off.  If sugar crystals are abrasive just crush it a bit.

3. Honey and Oats face pack : One of the best. Grind oats in a blender not smooth but into smaller granules, mix it with honey and apply as a face pack. Wipe off. You will look brighter and your skin super soft.

4. Honey and Chocolate Pack: Can anything can get better than this?? If you have dark chocolate melt it and bring it to room temperature. Always melt chocolate in double boiler method. Mix honey with the melted chocolate and apply on your face. But be quick in mixing because once you leave chocolate to cool down it will become hard. Using dark chocolate gives effective results because it is rich in antioxidants. The smell of chocolate will help you calm down. Dont get too tempted to lick chocolate from your face :P
 Dont have dark chocloate??? No worries. Simply use cocoa powder with honey and get the same effects :)

5. Honey, Oats and Chocolate Pack : Another tempting face pack. Just add ground oats to the above mix. Oats will act as a scrub. Therefore it is a 2 in 1 face pack.

I always use any of these packs when I am tired or depressed. I am total chocoholic. Honey and Chocolate helps to calm my senses :)

So these are my favorite packs with Honey. Do you have any special recipes with honey that you follow?? Comment or mail me. I will either update them in this post or post them separately under your name :)

If you have skincare queries or want to know about other facepacks, mail me at indgalsblog@gmail.com. I do my best to solve your queries :)

If find any faults in the above recipes feel free to comment below or mail me. I will remove them immediately.

Ps: Certain products that work for me may not work for you. So always do a patch test on whatever products you apply for your face to see if it causes any reactions on your face. If there is no reaction go ahead :)

Bye for now :)

Enjoy your weekend. (I am working tomorrow also. Sob! Sob!)
