uh huh, honey

the best beauty products, straight from the bees

by liza darwin

Honey might be great paired with peanut butter and stirred into tea, but guess what? It's also a miracle worker for your skin--it's hydrating, minimizes inflammation, and adds an extra boost to lotions, moisturizers, and masques. Bottom line: there are already about a billion reasons why it's super important we save the bees, and beauty is only the tip of the iceberg.

If you have dry lips, try a balm packed with beeswax. If you've got a cold sore or a spot that needs healing, dab a little manuka honey on it and watch the blemish disappear. Or if you just want to give your complexion a little extra radiance, grab a lotion with bee pollen--you'll see the difference.
