I always forget about honey.

I always do this. I forget how amazing honey - that simple wonder food given to us by the recently endangered honeybee - is for my skin.

Seriously. This is one of the simplest things you can do for your skin to nourish it:
1. wash face
2. keep face damp
3. coat skin with honey
4. dampen fingers
5. pat skin with damp fingers lightly, all over
6. rinse thoroughly with warm water
7. luxuriate in your fresh and clean skin

The honey I've been using lately is even better than usual, because it has started to crystallize - so I can not only use it as a masque, but also as a gentle scrub!

Honey is a mild anti-bacterial and antimicrobial agent, a humectant, and an anti-irritant. It really is the wonder masque.

[You can use it in your hair, too. Just rinse thoroughly!]
