Beauty tips and tricks: You can’t beat honey for better skin and hair

Use raw honey: processing removes much of the goodness
My top beauty tip is honey, raw and unadulterated.
I’ve always had problem skin but started using honey to remove my make-up and to wash my face a few months ago. While my skin is not perfect, it’s certainly the best it’s ever been.
Raw honey is also great for shaping curls. Just wash hair as normal, then run the honey through, let sit for a few minutes before washing out and you will get great body, and ringlets in my case – my hair is naturally wavy.
As for the honey, I always buy it at local markets or health food shops but I make sure to check that it’s raw and hasn’t gone through the extreme heat processes that conventional store-bought honey goes through. I reckon the processing removes much of the goodness and you won’t have the same success as you will with the raw stuff.
