Useful properties of honey
So, we all heard from mothers and grandmothers, how pleasant it is, after taking a steam bath, to get plenty of honey, and then enjoy the delicate and velvety skin and excellent well-being. Many young girls have already followed the wise advice of their ancestors, and not a bit sorry about it. Well, not without reason, and many cosmetic lines contain this valuable component, and not only cream and mask, but also shampoos, balms, lotions, lipsticks, soap, and even toothpastes.
The merit of honey is that he:
- contains a lot of vitamins, thereby providing a tonic effect for both the skin and the body from the inside;
- remarkably moisturizes and nourishes the skin, saving it from peeling and other unpleasant phenomena;
- It is considered an excellent antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent - not for nothing is it "eating it up" during colds!
Thanks to all its advantages, honey is suitable for solving many skin problems.
For oily skin
Let's start with the skin fat type with dilated pores. First, clean the pores: mix honey and cosmetic clay in a 1: 1 ratio and dilute with warm (not hot!) Water to the consistency of sour cream. After 15 - 20 minutes, wash off with warm water using a cotton pad or your regular sponge for the face. To tighten pores and reduce fat skin, just mix 1 beaten egg white and 2 teaspoons of honey, apply for 15 minutes and rinse with cool water. You can, of course, use honey in its pure form (also for 15 to 20 minutes), just in an ensemble with these products, masks will be more suitable precisely for solving a particular skin problem.

Preparing tea is very simple: 2 poured boiling water in a two-hundred-gram glass of 2 filter packages or a full tablespoon of linden flowers, cover and insist for 20-30 minutes, and it is better not to cool down - you can not dilute honey with hot water, otherwise all useful properties will disappear.
