Have you considered using unpasteurized honey as part of your beauty treatment? I recently visited a website called DatFunkyFro. She writes about beauty and has a line of products called OMO OGO Naturals.
Her site was down so I can’t say too much about it. I’m certain she will have it up and running in no time. Anyway, the article about using unpasteurized honey piqued my interest. Processed products have been around for a few decades. Natural products? Well, forever.
Why use raw honey?
The processing of honey rquires heat to pasteurize it. Pasteurizing is used to kill of the bacteria. Sadly, many good things are lost, such as enzymes that are good for your health and well-being. Raw honey contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and more for healthier skin. More about pasteurizing in another article.
Beautiful skin with unpasteurized honey?
- Begin your morning with rinsing your face with very warm water. That gets your pores opened up.
- Take of teaspoon of honey and gently massage it into your skin.
- Rinse it off your face.
- Gently dry your skin .
- Continue with your daily toner and moisturizing regiment.
That’s all there’s to it.
What might you expect?
First, a disclaimer. Your mileage will vary. One hundred percent unpasteurized honey is preferred. You can use store bought honey, but you probably won’t realize the same benefits. For example heating honey kills enzymes.
Unpasteurized honey doesn’t look as “pretty” as store bought honey. You can see specks of honey comb, bee pollen and some crystallization of the honey. Not a problem.
