7 Amazing Benefits of Raw Honey

I love honey as a natural ingredient for the body but its so important to know other ways to play around with it! I share with you several benefits of using honey and how you can use them! Remember “Raw Honey,” not just “Honey,” is essential in getting the full benefits because it has so many vitamins, nutrients, and enzymes that regular honey is stripped away from. It contains powerful antioxidants and helps heal a lot of skin conditions! So check the label of all honey and make sure its Raw!

Get’s rid of Acne!

Honey has anti-bacterial properties that can actually be used as a cleanser in your regular skin care routine! Just apply some raw honey to the affected area and rinse off after 10-15 minutes! It also has Anti-inflammatory properties to calm redness and irritation! It’s a quick aid to life’s pesky face problems!


If you don’t want to buy a mask why not use honey! It acts as a moisturizer that leaves your skin smooth and soft! Honey draws moisture from the air into the skin and provides long-lasting hydration! Let it sit for 15-20 minutes and rinse.


Honey also has bleaching affects which helps in decreasing the appearances of dark spots. Honey can fade any old or new scars especially from acne! You can also use coconut or olive oil with it. Massage it in for 1-2 minutes and put on a warm washcloth over the area until its cool. Doing this helps revive skin cells too!

Dark Circles

Since honey has bleaching benefits it also helps to fade dark circles. Remember some dark circles are genetics but other times it comes from lack of sleep. Try it out twice a week until you see improvement! I’m personally gonna be trying this one out!

Pore Cleanser

We all need our pores cleaned out ever now and again! With this one just mix jojoba or coconut oil with honey and massage gently into the skin in circular motions  and then rinse! Both of these combine prevents bacterial buildup!

Shampoo Booster

Add some honey to your shampoo! Its crazy but its actually genius! As mentioned before honey hads hydrating benefits. By doing this it regulate and retain moisture and strengthens hair!

Dandruff Buster

This one is for the ones suffering with a lot of dandruff. Apply to damp hair and leave on for about 3 hours then shampoo and rinse. Long time but so worth it!!!
