Honey’s beneficial properties
Honey contains nutritional, antiseptic, fortifying, soothing, laxative, diuretic and bactericidal properties. But do you know what effects it can have on our body?
Honey gives us energy for its high caloric content and helps us soothe the throat when we have it inflamed or irritated thanks to its astringent and antioxidant properties. If you have angina or cough, you can gargle with a squeezed lemon and a spoonful of honey, you will notice an immediate calming effect!
One of the benefits of honey on our skin is that it has healing properties that accelerate the regeneration process against wounds and burns. In addition, it nourishes in depth thanks to its minerals and vitamins, giving rise to a more nourished and hydrated skin, which preserves the elasticity of the skin and prevents premature aging.
When we talk about hair care, honey is one of the star ingredients in-home treatments and remedies, do you know why?
Benefits of honey in the hair
Exposure to the sun and the use of dryers, irons or tongs in our day to day make our hair dry and brittle, with a dull or dull appearance.
Thanks to the nutrients and the astringent and antioxidant properties of honey, it manages to protect it from dryness, giving it shine and nutrition. In addition, it helps in hair growth and keratin production, resulting in stronger and less brittle hair.
And something you would like to know: its antioxidant properties prevents the appearance of gray hair!

Homemade masks with honey, are they really effective?
Articles that refer to homemade masks with eggs, honey, oil, and other natural ingredients are increasingly common. But… are they really effective?
The properties that these foods contain are very beneficial for the hair, however, the way we combine these ingredients at home is not the best way to do it. Honey is very moisturizing, so it can grease our hair. In addition, we can end up with a dirty-looking hair and straight hair since it does not contain cleaning agents.
It is best to opt for a honey mask for the hair, since, in addition to benefiting from all its properties for the well-being of your hair, it also repairs, protects and brightens you, resulting in visibly healthier and brighter hair.
