Honey can work wonders. This inexpensive, natural ingredient is a surprisingly potent secret weapon for a multitude of beauty fixes. What makes honey so great? First of all, it’s full of antioxidants and when applied to the skin, it’s super moisturizing and soothing. Honey is also a great tool in the fight against certain annoying skin problems because it’s antibacterial (bye bye, acne) and it easily opens up clogged pores. You probably already have this amazing natural beauty product in your cupboards at home, which means radiant skin is only steps away! Here are some of our favorite honey hacks for your beauty routine.
