10 Beauty Recipes with Honey

Honey is a popular ingredient for homemade skin care recipes because it is naturally antibacterial and helps heal and soothe the skin.  Honey contains an enzyme that produces hydrogen peroxide, which kills bacteria.  It is also high in antioxidants that help combat free radicals.

Since honey is so thick, it gives the skin a layer of protection.  It is also a humectent, which means it pulls moisture from the air to the skin to keep your skin moisturized.
