Hey ladies, are you obsessed with your hair, skin, nails and leave no stone unturned in their maintenance?
To accomplish your mission, you might never fail to visit the spa also.
You even ignore the cost while shopping for the cosmetics which the husbands often complain about it 😉.
I admit this fact too that I am deeply and madly in love with the beauty products and simply can’t resist from buying.
But my shop till drop phase for the beauty essentials was put on a halt when Ela Wilson, a beauty blogger and a close friend of mine bumped into my way.
She made me aware of the usefulness of honey and how it worked like a miracle on the skin, hair, and nails.
The DIY beauty essentials that she shared with me has given mind blowing effects on my body and of course, saves my money too 😉.
Earlier, I used to think that the honey is a food ingredient that adds flavor to the dish.
But I was totally wrong as it is far better than that.

I have penned down this blog with the aim to educate you all about the tricks which you can easily follow for retaining your beauty.
So, let’s first start with your hair.
No wonder, having long, thick and shiny locks is every girl’s desire!
But the hustle-bustle of life along with the work stress is badly affecting our hair.
This is quite evident from the hair thinning, baldness patches, scanty hair, etc.
Do you have a dull and frizzy hair? Feeling little low with your hair fall?
No need to worry as the “honey conditioning mask” is there to help you out in your bad hair days!
All you have to do is, take a small bowl, put 1 Tbsp raw honey and mix it with 2Tbsp coconut oil or you can also use olive oil in place of the coconut.
Apply this mask on to your hair deeply inside the roots to the tips. Leave it for 15-20 minutes. Wash your head properly!
Your locks will look bouncy and glowing which you can proudly flaunt.
For strengthening and nourishing your hair, you can also add honey to your regular shampoo for giving them the extra edge.

Let’s move to the skin.
Undoubtedly, the skin is the most sensitive and delicate part of our body that requires the utmost care.
The women are over cautious for their skin than men.
One single pimple on the skin has the potential to drag them in depression!
The common skin problems that we generally encounter with are acne, dryness, redness, itchiness, etc.
- For the dry skin, the “hydrating mask” will work wonders!
It’s effortless to make, and all you have to do is take 1 or 2 Tbsp of the buttermilk in a bowl, 1 egg yolk and 1 Tsp of honey and mix it well.
Apply the mixture on your face and spread it will. Leave it for around 15-20 minutes and after that, rinse it.
This treatment will nourish your skin to the core, and all your dryness will vanish away.
You can see a tint of glow and freshness!

- Honey can be used as a scrubber too. For that, mix some baking soda and honey and apply on your face in a circular motion. Wash it after few minutes and get rid of the tight skin.

Now, it’s time for nails!
We waste our hardly-earned money by visiting salons on the manicure and pedicure sessions but never realized the fact that we can do it at our home too without any assistance of the others.
Yes, you heard it right! You can have smooth and beautiful hands without going to a salon/spa.
I can clearly see the eagerness on you face on how we can do this?
Just mix 1 Tsp of honey, apple cider vinegar, and coconut oil and rub it gently on each cuticle and wash it after 10-12 minutes in a slightly warm water.

Honey can be used for the bath too!
If honey is proving worthful for your skin and hair, then it will definitely be right for the bathing purpose.
You can make a body scrub with the help of honey.
Take 3 Tbsp ground almonds and 2 Tbsp of raw honey and mix it well to form a paste.
Scrub it all over the body while taking a shower!
If you do this on a regular basis, then you will achieve a soft and radiant skin, and you will also not feel uncomfortable in wearing the short dresses.
