We all love clear skin but unfortunately as we grow older we start experiencing a number of skin related problems. Due to our hectic lifestyle, stress, lack of exercises and poor diet, we face several problems of skin aging, rashes, eruptions, acne, pimple and many others. There are many creams, lotions, masks and treatments available which promise to return our original soft and glowing skin, but only after you pay a lot. Do you know that you can prepare a number of skincare products at home in a few steps, using some readily available materials?
Honey is a wonder ingredient which offers a number of benefits to our skin. Here are some such easy to prepare home-made skin treatments with the help of honey.
Homemade Skin Treatment With Honey:
Apple and Honey Face Toner
To prepare this pack you need an apple and a tablespoon of honey. Chop the fresh apples and blend in a food processor or in a blender with a tablespoon of honey. You will need a smooth coarse paste. You can now apply this mixture and let it stay for at least 15 minutes. You can then rinse off. The honey and apple paste works as a natural toner and adds glow and freshness to your skin.
Skin Clarifier For Flare Ups and Acne Prone Skin
Mix half a cup of warm water with just one fourth teaspoon of salt. You can use a cotton ball and dip it in the mixture. Apply it directly on the blemish. You need to pressurize the cotton ball for 3-4 minutes so that the blemish softens. Once done you need to just dab honey on the blemish. Leave it for 20 minutes at least. Rinse well and pat dry.
Firming Facial Mask With Honey
A wonderful mask which helps to reduce skin sagging, fine lines and wrinkles! In a small bowl whisk one egg white, one teaspoon glycerin and two tablespoons of honey.

You will feel fresh and happier.
Oats And Honey Face Scrub
A perfect scrub for those who suffer from blackheads! Dead skin cells tend to accumulate on the surface of our skin, make our skin darker and look much older!
