Kissez of Nature-Honey

When used regularly honey can work wonders for your skin & hair.  Honey acts as a great anti-aging agent as well as a moisturizer. It is rich in natural antioxidants that have anti-microbial properties that is perfect for aging skin. It is known that ancient women used honey to keep the skin youthful, radiant and smooth.

Moisturize

Honey is known as a humectant. A humectant attracts moisture and keeps moisture locked in the skin. Using a honey based facial mask or soap proves beneficial to areas of skin that tend to become dry or itchy because it seals moisture to these areas.  Honey can help your skin retain moisture and elasticity without drying it out. It clarifies the skin by opening up and unclogging pores.

Haircare

To add shine and clarity to your hair a honey mask is the perfect remedy.  Mix some honey and olive oil together and apply to hair. Cover with cap if desired & leave on for about 30 minutes then wash the mixture out.  You will see & feel such an amazing difference.
