Home remedies have always been popular and with people slowly understanding the benefits of going organic and natural, kitchen ingredients are getting increasingly popular. While we’ve all received our fair share of home remedies from our mothers and grandmothers, there’s one ingredient that tends to be extremely loved by people from all over the country and that is honey. Organically produced, honey is a great source of natural moisturiser and works wonders in keeping both the hair and skin nourished. 
Honey is filled with anti-bacterial and anti-septic properties which makes it the perfect ingredient to deal with acne-prone skin. These properties also make it a great ingredient to deal with dandruff and keeps the scalp clean. Here’s how you can use the goodness of honey in your skincare and haircare routine: 
Honey is a great ingredient to include in your scrubbing routine. While physical exfoliators can be harsh on your skin, honey will help in keeping the skin moisturised while the exfoliators will do the magic. All you need to do is mix a coffee powder and sugar with honey and use it as the perfect scrub. You can also mix a dab of your body wash to the mixture to use it as a body scrub in the shower. 
2 ingredient face mask
If you’re looking to pamper your skin and make it softer after a long week at work or overusing makeup, this mask can help you a lot. All you need to do is mash half a ripe banana and mix it with honey. You could even add a splash of cold milk for added moisturisation. Once done, apply it evenly and let it sit for 10 minutes. Rinse with water and you’ll see an instant change in your skin. 
3 ingredient hair mask
If you’re looking for a hair spa-like treatment at home, we’ve just got the right mask for you. All you need is a bowl of curd, honey and coconut oil mixed in equal parts. Apply it generously to your scalp and hair shafts and leave it on for 40 minutes. Rinse with a gentle shampoo and conditioner and voila you have moisturised hair like never before!
