A Sweet Solution to Skin Woes

Provided by: 

By Jayme Otto

Sure, honey tastes great in tea or on a peanut butter sandwich, but it’s also a powerful skin healer, says Christopher Watt, a licensed aesthetician and owner of Christopher Watt Esthetics in West Hollywood, California. Here are three recipes Watt uses to treat several famous faces, including Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez:

For acne...
Honey’s antibacterial properties kill the bacteria-laden sebum that causes zits. Use this cleansing honey wash every day.
Mix 1/4 cup honey, 1 tablespoon liquid face soap, and 1/2 cup glycerin (available at drug and beauty stores).

For dry skin...
Honey is a natural humectant; it attracts moisture to the skin and then helps retain it. Use the following moisturizer every day.
Mix 2 tablespoons honey, 2 tablespoons cocoa butter, 2 drops bergamont oil (optional), and 1 drop lavender oil (optional).

For psoriasis...
This chronic condition appears as inflamed and itchy patches of skin on the knees, elbows, hands, feet, scalp, or back, and this honey mask can help soothe the itchiness.
Mix 1/4 cup honey and 1 crushed banana. Apply to damp skin, and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove with a damp cloth, pat dry, and apply moisturizer.
