Everyone wants to have perfect hair and skin. Having beautiful skin & hair is like a dream come true if it was possible.
Well, what if I tell you that it is possible? What if I told you that the main ingredient to the best hair and skin of your life is sitting in your kitchen waiting for your discovery? The secret to the most amazing skin & hair is the magnificently made honey.
Let’s talk about honey and not the famous Mariah Carey song. Nine times out of ten, you have used honey as a natural sweetener for tea and cooking needs, but never thought to use it for your hair. We know what you’re thinking, “Honey in my hair? You must be crazy.” Listen, just hear us out.
Raw, unprocessed honey is powerfully packed with vitamins, minerals, antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. It also acts as a humectant, which helps your hair retain moisture.
Here are five reasons why you should incorporate honey into your hair regimen:
1. Stimulates Hair Growth
Honey seals in moisture, conditions and strengthens hair follicles. Add a few drops to your hair wash routine and watch your hair flourish.
2. Hair Conditioner
The nutrients and enzymes in raw honey add shine to dull hair without weighing it down. Mix one tablespoon of raw honey with two tablespoons of coconut oil to condition and smooth your hair.
3. Fights Dandruff & Thinning Hair
Due to honey’s antibacterial and antiseptic qualities, it can prevent hair thinning, scalp infections, and dandruff. Dandruff can block hair follicles, which prevents new hair from growing. Apply diluted raw honey into scalp and let it sit for three hours. Rinse and repeat every other day for about two weeks to achieve the best results.
4. Natural Highlighter
Honey has the ability to naturally lighten hair color without using harsh chemicals that most salons use. Although results may vary and aren’t as quick as salon services, it’s still a cheap and natural alternative for a little pizazz in your hair regimen.
5. Inexpensive Natural Hair Care
Honey is extremely economical and won’t break your bank. Natural and inexpensive?
That’s a double win!
Below are 8 amazing DIY remedies from the Bright Side. These remedies will give your skin a glow that would make anyone jealous!
1. For clear and spotless skin

Recipe 3. Crush 2 aspirins into powder, then add 4-5 drops of lemon juice and some honey. Mix them together, and apply to the troubled zone for a night. It’s best to cover the mask with a bandage.
