Honey has been a natural body care product ever since the days of Cleopatra, and it makes the perfect addition to our homemade Honey Almond Sugar Scrub. It is a wonderful humectant that acts as a long lasting moisturizer and leaves your skin incredibly soft and hydrated. It is also anti-aging, anti-bacterial, and is loaded with other nutrients and anti-oxidants. And if you’re trying to figure out how to cope with undereye circles, products containing honey are a good place to start. It is just as good for your outside as it is for your inside. Try to chose organic, natural, and unprocessed ingredients as much as possible to keep this body treatment beneficial for your skin. While some of these ingredients seem a bit pricey they really go a long way and can be used to make – body wash, hand soap, other scrubs, lotions, and more. If you are interested in replacing your store bought beauty products with homemade it is well worth the investment. Keep it to yourself or package some in a pretty jar for a friend who could use a mini spa treatment.
