Honey Soft Skin
I know I have talked about honey before, but I have another honey soft skin recipe! I was watching Dr. Oz a while back when they did a segment for home remedies for beauty issues. One was using strawberries and baking soda as toothpaste. You take a strawberry or two, smash it up and add baking soda to it. You have to add enough baking soda to make it into a soft paste. They also added a few drops of lemon juice. So I tried this and was not a fan. I love my baking soda as teeth cleaner/whitener as is. The strawberries are great for whitening and many celebrities say that they rub a strawberry on their teeth before they go on the red carpet. Interesting I guess but we all know they spend thousands of dollars to get those teeth sparkling white or better yet buy themselves a new set of teeth.
Skin as Soft as Honey
I never really got the whole “skin as soft as honey” because isn’t honey sticky NOT soft? I mean it is smooth and flows gently…maybe I am mixing my quotes up. Anyway, the other home remedy was for acne and guess what it involves: honey and baking soda! So if you want to dry out your acne all you have to do is mix one tablespoon of honey and one of baking soda. You can do 1.5T of honey if you want but who has the time to dirty two different spoons? I decided to do this one just for fun and it wouldn’t hurt if it worked either. When you mix the honey and baking soda at first you thing “This will never mix!” but it does and you get a sticky mask like consistency. So on Dr Oz the woman recommended that you keep this mask on your face for no more than 20 minutes, which I did but could have gone a lot longer. There is no burning sensation just a little tingling which eventually went away. I will warn you, if you’re in a hot room this mask will start melting so keep a smock on or an old shirt.
Honey Skin Results
So after washing my face I was left with super SOFT skin! I could not believe it! I kept touching it like it was a miracle of some soft. My skin also looked brighter. I was so happy with the results that I send the before and after to my best friend and cousin. I wanted them to try it for themselves. Since then, I have been using the honey and baking soda mixture mask at least once a week. If anything, it helps me relax and take a little “me” time. When I wash my face I make sure to moisturize using my organic coconut oil. I am telling you, two ingredients will change your skin-one tablespoon or honey and one of baking soda and you will be touching your skin uncontrollably like I did. Now, I keep the mask on for at least 30 minutes or as long as I watch one show. So I dare you to try the honey soft skin recipe and not like it!
