Green Tip of the Week: Seriously Simple Skin

Tuesday, December 23, 2014 3:02 PM | Anonymous

Mix and match these three simple food-grade ingredients for glowing winter skin

Raw Honey

Honey promotes skin healing and has natural antimicrobial properties.  Simply massage it into damp skin to improve skin's health and appearance.


On days when you need to slough off dry skin, add a bit of granulated sugar to your honey. The natural exfoliation will help your complexion shine.

Olive Oil

Winter can take a toll on skin.  Protect your delicate facial skin by adding a bit of extra moisturizing power to your face wash with olive oil.  Simply add a few drops of oil to your honey before rubbing into your face.  You can also pat oil on after washing and drying your face, but you may prefer a more neutral-smelling oil, such as grapeseed or sweet almond, for that purpose.
