7 Ways to Use Honey for Beauty – a DIY Overnight Guide
#1. Dry Lips Cure
Before going to bed, exfoliate your lips using a DIY lip scrub. Then, apply a thin layer of honey over your lips and leave on overnight. In the morning, you’ll wake up to soft, kissable lips!
#2. Glowing Skin
Wanna wake up with perfect glowing skin? Mix one part honey with 2 parts aloe vera and smooth onto face before bed. Leave on overnight and rinse off. In the morning, your face will glow and be the smoothest its ever been!
Did you know that honey is an amazing acne combatant? Because of its anti-septic properties, honey can kill acne in its tracks! Use honey as a spot treatment and apply a bandage over the affected area. Leave on overnight and remove in the morning. Use every night for a week for best results.
#4. Scars & Dark Spots
If you have a lot of scars and/or dark spots, apply a thin layer of honey to the face or just to affected areas and leave on overnight. If your scars are really bad, you can also add a few drops of raw, organic lemon juice to the mixture. Rinse off in the morning and use as often as needed.
#5. Lighten Hair
To lighten hair naturally, brew some chamomile tea which is a natural lightener, pour into a spray bottle and a couple of spoonfuls of honey. Spray directly onto hair, cover with a shower cap and leave on overnight. Do this every night for a week to see lighter, softer, and shinier hair!
#6. Split Ends
Mix equal parts honey with equal parts coconut oil or olive oil and apply directly to ends. Leave on overnight and rinse off in the morning. You’ll wake up with smoother, shinier hair, and split ends will be a lot less noticeable!
Add a few drops of lemon juice to some honey and apply to affected areas. Leave on overnight and rinse off in the morning. The anti-septic properties of honey deeply cleanses the skin leaving it blackhead free, while lemon juice prevents blackheads and acne and gets rid of scars.
