What effects expect after Honey treatment?
As most natural ingredients, honey works best if used regularly. After one use, you will notice your skin is softer in touch, looking more healthy and less dull. However, with frequent use, your skin tone will get more even. Look brighter. Plumber because of all nourishment and moisture.
How to use it?
So should I eat it, drink it or bath with eat? Honey is safe to do all of it. Though, for skin benefits, apply on the skin directly, mix with store cosmetics or create your own DIY product (mask recipe below).
Which honey to choose?
The first choice is 100% natural raw honey. To be sure, read the label carefully. To avoid marketing influence, focus on content written with small letters. Choose one in glass instead of plastic.

But really, any natural honey will work great.
