Homemade Beauty Treatments Using Honey

All of us feel good when we look our best and we get compliments for our beautiful looks. Many of us think that it can be achieved with the help of some highly expensive branded beauty products. However, this is not true and you can get that gorgeous look at home. There are several homemade beauty treatments which work wonders on your skin, and without spending a fortune.
Honey - Nature's Natural Ingredient
When we talk of beauty treatments, they mainly consist of skin care. The simple process of skin care includes cleansing, scrubbing, toning and moisturizing. I'd like to share some natural homemade beauty treatments that are easy to follow.

Recipe for Skin Cleanser
Cleansing the face is one of the most important part of any skin care regime. A simple natural skin cleanser can be prepared with the help of honey, lemon juice and plain yogurt. Yogurt cleanses up the skin, lemon juice tones up the skin, and honey will moisturize the skin. To prepare the cleansing mixture, mix 2 tablespoons of honey, 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, and 4 tablespoons of yogurt. Massage it well into the skin for 3 minutes so that the essential qualities are absorbed well into the skin, and then wash off with warm water.

Recipe for Skin Toner
You need one medium size cucumber and 2 teaspoonfuls of honey to prepare a natural skin toner. Peel the cucumber, cut it into random pieces and make a puree using a blender. Separate the juice from the puree by straining it through cheesecloth. Add honey into the juice and put the mixture in a clean bottle and store it in the refrigerator. You can use it for one week. Before using, shake the bottle well so that the honey and juice is mixed well. Pour it on a cotton pad, rub it over the skin and let the solution dry on your skin. You should use it after cleansing your skin, morning and night.

Recipe for Facial Scrub
Take one overripe strawberry, slice and mash it well. Add 2 teaspoons of baking soda and one teaspoon of grounded almonds and mix into the strawberry to prepare a smooth paste. Your scrub is ready to use. Dampen your face by splashing some cold water onto it. Apply the scrub gently on your skin and rub it with the tip of your fingers using small circular motions for about 5 minutes. Do not use around the eyes, as the skin in that area is very sensitive. Finally, wash off with warm water and dry your face thoroughly. This is suitable for all types of skin. This you will get rid of dull, rough skin.

Recipe for Facial Mask
For this, you need one large size peach with skin, 2 tablespoons of honey and 2 teaspoons of yogurt. Mash the peach and add the honey and yogurt. Mix thoroughly until you get a thick and even paste. Apply over face and neck in such a way that a thick layer is formed. Wait for 10-15 minutes so that the nutrients get absorbed well into the skin. Wash off with water. Apply a toner and moisturizer. The highly nutritious substances present in this mask will help to give your skin a soft and supple feel.

I hope you find the easy homemade beauty treatments given in this article helpful. When you pamper yourself with all these treatments regularly, I am sure it will make a lot of difference to your skin. However, these treatments should be accompanied by a healthy diet and drinking of plenty of fluids to make your skin glow from within.
