Honey helps your skin in several ways. When used topically, honey acts as a humectant, attracting and trapping moisture by the skin. As a result, the skin looks healthier and plumper. When consumed or used topically, the antioxidants it contains can also protect the skin from irritants and bacteria. One of the simplest ways to use honey is to look for an organic or natural face pack with honey listed as an ingredient. These packs can work even better if they contain milk cream or yogurt. Another way to use honey is to consume 1 Tbsp (15 ml) each day.You can make your own honey based pack, as well. Mix 1 tsp (5 ml) honey with 1 tsp (5 ml) papaya paste. Apply this pack to your cheeks and let it sit for 10 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water. Another honey remedy to try can be made and consumed as a breakfast food. Mix together 1 cup (250 ml) milk, 1 tsp (5 ml) softened butter, 1 tsp (5 ml) honey, 2 tsp (10 ml) shredded cheese, and 1 Tbsp (15 ml) oats. Eat this in the morning, drinking it with orange juice.Milk and other dairy products are believed to hydrate the skin and soothe both irritation and redness, thereby improving the skins appearance.
