Honey Is Very Good For
Your Skin & Hair~

Do you know that honey—that natural sweetening agent produced by bees—is actually good for your skin and hair?

The ancient Greeks were probably one of the first to enjoy the beauty-enhancing benefits of honey. They discovered that this nature-based sweetener left the skin soft and looking young. Probably unknown to them, honey is a humectant (a hygroscopic substance used to keep things moist) that attracts and keeps moisture inside the skin and hair follicles, making them both supple and elastic.
