Honey: Its Five Unique Benefits

September 16, 2018

Hello guys...
If you are new then welcome...
Honey, honey, honey… is sometimes all you can say when describing the delicious all-natural sweetener.  It’s really a star in its own right. If a drop touches your lips and you do not use your tongue to wipe them clean and savour the taste, then I don't know what to say to you. In today’s times, more people are discovering that honey is much more than a flavouring agent, and it has many other wonderful benefits. In this article, we will look at five unique ways it can be used.



Honey: Its Five Unique Benefits

Honey used for the skin? I know you are wondering, but yes, honey has a few benefits when used for your skin. You are probably thinking I should shove the thoughts down my throat. You may have tried a lot of DIY beauty treatments that ended in disaster. Those clueless beauty bloggers say anything just to seem like they have the alternative to Botox, but it usually ends up in mess and a trailer of disappointment following the person. Today, I’m going to mention one more (yes, really, one more, hold the applause...) Honey! Honey has been used for centuries, well before the age of the internet and social media, and it has never failed its users. With honey, you can carry out beauty treatments while keeping them simple. Honey is known to be great for the skin because of antioxidants and antibacterial properties. Honey is also a natural humectant because it attracts moisture, which is great for dry skin. With honey, your skin will be intact with a natural glow.



1.DIY honey mask- tip:

Honey can be used as a facial mask, as it helps to unclog one's pores while offering parched skin a moisturizing effect. To get this done, apply a thin layer of honey to your skin after you have slightly made your skin damp. Wear the honey for about thirty minutes before rinsing it out with warm water. Your skin will be guaranteed to be radiant.


Honey also has other benefits for the skin and your overall health which may include:

2. Honey spot treatment for acne:

You can get rid of those annoying zits with the same old honey. Once again, you can heave a sigh of relief that your face will soon become as smooth as a baby's bum.
Honey spot treatment tip: Instead of using those pimple creams on the counter, make use of honey to treat your breakouts. Use the honey lightly on the skin because you will leave it on throughout the night, and get up to see your skin feeling less stressed. Make use of a cotton swab and get a dab of honey onto that your blemish. You can mix it with lavender oil and tea tree oil for an extra boost. Go honey, and watch your face change.

3. Honey for wound healing:

Honey can aid in wound and burn to heal. Honey has been used from the ancient Egyptian epoch up to the present day, as a burn and wound healer. Research has found out that honey is great for healing wounds and burns, and even those infected after surgery has been done. That's not all. Honey can wear a cape and call itself, 'a superhero', and I would concur. It has a lot of benefits. For example, it is a great treatment for diabetic foot ulcers, which have been known to degenerate until amputated.
A study showed that honey had 43.3% success rate as a wound treatment, while another study showed that raw honey had healed over 97% of those patients suffering from diabetic ulcers.
The healing powers of honey are not far from the fact that it has both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects. These effects help the honey easily nourish the surrounding tissue.
The honey brings more to the table, and should even be given a right to sit on the throne, as it can aid the treatment of other skin conditions, such as psoriasis.
Honey is one great gift of nature to all of mankind. Why not use it?

4. Honey contains some nutrients:

Yes, although very sweet and tasty, honey is also healthy. A tablespoon of raw honey usually contains sugar of 17 grams, 64 calories, maltose, fructose, sucrose, as well as glucose. Honey has no protein, fat, or fibre. Honey also has, in small quantities, minerals and vitamins, as well as RDI in 1%. You may have to eat more pounds than that to get your daily requirements fulfilled. Honey also has antioxidants and bioactive plant compounds. The darker the honey, the higher the content of nutrients it possesses.
Side note: Honey is great for diabetics.
Honey is known to help reduce the risk of heart disease in those with type 2 diabetes. It can increase the beneficial HDL cholesterol while reducing the harmful LDL cholesterol, triglycerides. It can also help to reduce the risk of inflammation.

5. Honey for the Hair:

Last but not least, and certainly one of my favourites, maybe the use of honey for hair. As previously mentioned, honey is a humectant that attracts moisture, which means it makes the perfect moisturizer for dry, brittle hair. Many people have found this to be most effective to be used as a deep conditioner in combination with other natural ingredients, such as avocados, yoghurt, and aloe vera gel.

Hopefully, these five tips will inspire you to incorporate honey into your beauty regimen and health routine.
