This just in: nature makes a skin care ingredient that will never go bad and is extremely beneficial for your skin. Actually, this news isn’t hot off the press. People have been using honey for their skin for centuries. In fact, Cleopatra put honey and milk into her baths for a glowing, supple complexion. And who doesn’t want to look as beautiful as Cleopatra?

Why Honey is Good for Your Skin:

  • As a popular anti-aging ingredient, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles

  • It helps absorb impurities for clearer looking skin

  • It’s full of nourishing vitamins & minerals

  • It contains probiotics to help your complexion feel balanced

  • It’s moisturizing & conditioning

  • It’s full of naturally occurring sugars and enzymes that help skin feel fresh

  • It’s cleansing

  • It calms & soothes

  • It contains proteins & amino acids to promote supple looking skin

  • It’s a natural skin care ingredient

  • It’s a humectant

What’s a humectant?

A humectant (pronounced: hue-mec-tent) is something that helps hydrate skin by drawing moisture from deeper layers of skin and from the outside environment to the skin’s surface, resulting in a healthy looking complexion and reducing the appearance of fine lines caused by dehydration.

How to create a honey skincare routine

Want to incorporate honey into your skin care routine?

Step 1: Start by cleansing with Milking It™ Chunk Big Bath Bar, featuring honey and soothing goat’s milk. It washes without drying skin.

Step 2: Exfoliate neck to toes with Lady Limoncello™ Body Scrub. It gently polishes dry areas with rice bran and sugar while calming freshly exfoliated skin with honey. (And it smells amazing!)

Step 3: Finish up your routine by massaging in a little Honey, Honey!™ Body Crème with non-greasy apricot kernel oil and our customer-favorite honey lemon scent.
