- Wedding: November 1999
I had a sort of lousy day, and with -40 wind chill, I really didn’t feel like freezing just to get to the gym late when it would be really busy. So I treated myself to a night of at-home pampering. I did a honey mask, and it was awesome!
I took the best honey I had (a very nice light colored honey from a local farmer) and rubbed it all over my face and massaged it in. Then I filled the tub with hot water and tossed in an old honey bear that was full of granulated sugar to melt it down. I massaged my face a bit more while the tub filled, and then used the warmed honey as a body scrub while the tub filled the rest of the way.
After waiting about 5-10 minutes, I washed off the honey and enjoyed a soak in the tub, and 10 minutes into my bath I washed the mask off my face. I swear, bees, my skin has never been so soft and smooth! And I smell rather yummy 🙂 Didn’t need to apply any lotion afterwards, which is rare with the harsh winters up here drying you my skin. I think I may need to make this a weekly ritual!
Do any of you bees have any great ‘from the pantry’ routines or remedies you do at home? I’d love to hear more of them! I can always tell Mr.ND that it’s all in the name of wedding-beauty prep 😉
