Food On Your Face Using Raw, Unfiltered Honey by Nature Nate's + Three Readers Each Win a Nature Nate's Honey Gift Pack- Each A $31 Value!

Want to try a few effective at-home remedies without spending a fortune on expensive products? I was recently reading up on many healthy, natural foods that do wonders not only to your health, but also provides a plethora of beauty benefits. 

Enter Nature Nate’s 100% pure, raw and unfiltered honey

I'm sure many of you know that honey can also be applied externally to help moisturize, sooth irritations, clear up acne, and even zap away signs of aging. Nature Nate’s provides 100% pure, raw and unfiltered honey that maintains the natural enzymes and antibacterial qualities lost in most other honey brands. Combined with commonplace items found in your fridge, food on your face could be the easiest, most effective and natural solution for glowing, healthy skin. Here are a few natural beauty recipes to try at home from nature Nate's*My personal beauty tip: make sure you are not allergic to any of these ingredients before applying them on your skin!

Dry Skin/ Acne

After years of struggling with acne and dry skin, Lori at Laurel of Leaves experimented with this Honey Face Mask once learning about all of the benefits of raw, unfiltered honey. Recommended for daily use for at least two weeks to start, Lori found this regimen to do the trick:

Honey Face Mask
1.    Apply thin layer of raw, unfiltered honey to clean face and leave on for 10 minutes to an hour.
2.    Rinse off with warm water, pat face dry.
3.    Follow with coconut oil to moisturize (coconut oil is antibacterial as well).

Oily Skin/ Acne

An effective remedy against oily skin and acne, this Honey & Egg White Mask is designed to pull excess oils while also lifting and tightening your skin. Nature Nate’s raw, unfiltered honey will soothe any blemishes/irritations while softening the skin. Egg whites have been proven to be astringent, therefore helping with acne and/or oily skin. Oils in the skin are pulled from pores as the egg white dries. This drying agent combined with the moisturizing and antibiotic properties found in raw honey make a perfect defense against acne and oily skin.

Honey & Egg White Mask
1.    Combine 2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered honey with one organic egg white and apply over clean face.
2.    Leave mask on skin 10-15 minutes as you feel the egg tighten.
3.    Rinse with warm water.


This Lemon-honey scrub makes lips kissably smooth, followed by a coconut oil salve that softens. Lemons, a natural skin exfoliator, will give this scrub an extra boost when combined with raw honey and sugar.  

Lemon-Honey Lip Scrub 

1.    Mix 1.5 teaspoons raw, unfiltered honey with 1.5 teaspoons sugar and juice from ¼ lemon.
2.    Rub over lips with finger in circular motion to exfoliate; rinse.
3.    Combine 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, contents of 1 vitamin E capsule and 1 drop lemon essential oil in another bowl.
4.    Dab on lips to moisturize. Extras can be kept in the fridge for a week.
