Benefits:

Technically, honey is not organic, but is such a common ingredient in natural products that I had to include it. Honey helps the skin retain moisture, which is why it is so effective for dry skin ingredient. It is also an anti-inflammatory and soothes irritated skin.

What do we know about it?  

The inhabitants of mountain villages in northern India and Pakistan use honey very often as a moisturizer. These are places where temperatures drop drastically during the winter and where dry skin is a problem.

Do it yourself (DIY) Honey Facial Mask:

Heat a cup of honey in a pot, clean and exfoliate your face. Then apply a layer of warm honey (HOT NO) on your face with a small brush or your fingers. Let it set for ten minutes and rinse your face gently with warm water and dry with a towel. Your face will feel very sweet!
