Honey’s a sweet treat for your skin–but you don’t have to go to the farmers market, buy a jar of pure, local honey and whip up a batch of DIY beauty treatments to reap the benefits. (Although I think that’s lots of fun, too.) Instead, look for honey and other bee-lovely things like beeswax or royal jelly on the ingredients list. We’ve pulled together a few options to try for your face, body, hair and makeup routine. Happy Honey Month!

Honey does a lot more than just sweeten your tea. Since ancient times, it has been used in a variety of ways for its ability to heal and moisturize skin. Honey has natural antibacterial properties, and ancient Egyptian Queen Cleopatra added it to her bath water to smooth and moisturize her skin.
To me, bees are just amazing. I’ve been fascinated with these tiny workaholics for a long time. Becoming a beekeeper is even on my bucket list!
In honor of September, which is National Honey Month, I’ll be sharing some ways to incorporate honey into your beauty routine all month long. But first, let’s look at how beneficial this liquid gold is for your skin.
