A Short History of Honey
Cleopatra bathed in honey and was said to be one of the most radiant women of all time. Also, Alexander the Great and King Agesipolis I of ancient Sparta were immersed in honey, for preservation prior to burial. Honey is renown throughout history, due to its beneficial healing properties, giving longevity of life and preventing disease. It is anti-inflammatory and 100% natural. It contains many bio-genetic stimulants which increase bodily activity. Obviously, efficient body mechanisms result in a healthy body and this reflection is seen in the appearance of the skin. Its therapeutic properties are rarely used in the modern world due to a lack of knowledge about its benefits.
My Honey Is Ready! What Do I Do Now For My Facial?
1 Tie your hair back away from your face using a headband.
2 Wash your face with mild soap and use cotton pads with water afterwards to ensure your skin is clean.
3 Use the cotton pads to drench the skin with warm water and apply a tablespoon of honey to your face. Mixing honey with water creates an emulsion that isn’t sticky. Add more water to your face if the honey is too thick to allow even coverage.
4 Massage in small clockwise circular motions (for nutrients absorption) or simply leave on.
5 Wash off after 10 – 1 5 minutes.
6 Finally, to complete your honey facial, hydrate with a good barrier cream/oil (we recommend Clear Medical Tone and Defence Formula Skin Oil). If you want, you can repeat this regime daily, weekly or monthly.
