With so many beauty products and techniques promising a more radiant, youthful complexion, it can be difficult to know where to turn. Many cosmetics only target the surface of the skin, instead of getting to the underlying tissue and muscles which can really make a difference in your skin’s appearance.
Would you bee-lieve something as easy as using honey along with a simple ancient massage technique could in fact deliver on the promise?
First off, you will need about a teaspoon of raw honey. It is important to use raw honey because it contains superior healing qualities and higher levels of antioxidants.
Wash your face and neck area.
Apply raw honey to your wet skin.
Gently press your skin with your fingers and quickly lift them off. The simple massaging movement will work the underlying muscles in your face and neck.
Rinse your face and neck with warm and then cold water, making sure all traces of the honey are removed.
Apply toner followed by your favourite moisturizer.
You may be familiar with honey masks or face washing techniques, but where this massage is really unique is in the lifting and compressing action of the massage. Once completed, your skin will look and feel softer, smoother, and more radiant. This honey massage will actually “wake” up tired and dull skin by stimulating the underlying facial muscles and tissue, this is what encourages healthy skin and a youthful complexion.
The many benefits include encouraging collagen and elastin production, improving blood circulation to cells and stagnant muscles in the face and neck and an increased flow of the lymphatic system, thereby providing excellent drainage of toxins and excess fluids.
The raw honey offers a powerhouse of benefits - honey is antibacterial and antifungal, so this massage is especially beneficial for sensitive and acne-prone skin. Honey contains vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that your skin will love. Honey is also a humectant—it attracts water and promotes water retention. It is, therefore, a good way to provide moisture to the skin without added chemicals, heavy oils, or other harmful ingredients found in manufactured moisturizers.
