Honey-based Masks

Sunday, 31 May 2009

Honey-based MasksHoney is a sweet fluid produced by honey bees which is derived from the nectar of flowers. And the thing from nectar of flowers can be the most delicious and nutrient substance ever created in the world.

A human, especially a woman, is like a flower, indeed. In spring and summer she blooms and she does not need to make efforts to look attractive and beautiful since nature works. And in winter season women loose a little bit of their beauty since the nature sleeps and who cares of us? Sure, we ourselves. Long winter time is a real stress for our skin and hair. Cold and windy weather make our skin dull and dry, and it easily gets inflamed and peeled. You want to go and rush for the expensive cosmetics making the dust fly? Wait a bit. Go to the kitchen and you will get the staff that rejuvenates your skin as successfully as the most effective and expensive cosmetics. Honey is the lode of vitamins and nutrients. It is often used in cosmetology purposes since honey masks are good for any age and any skin type. The only contraindication is allergy and enlarged blood vessels on your face.
