When your skin feels rough and raw, a lotion made with raw honey can soothe and smooth it again. (NAPS)
(NAPSI)—When Mother Nature sends enough rough weather to make it
tough to keep skin smooth, the good news is she also created a way to soften
it up again. Notably, honey and other products you may already have right in
your own kitchen.
Why Save The Skin You’re In
Skin is the body’s largest organ. It protects the other organs,
makes you sensitive to touch and literally keeps you from evaporating. If
it’s itchy, dry and cracked, it can affect your health and happiness.
Fortunately, honey is a pure, botanical product at an economical price
point. It’s a natural humectant, meaning it
takes moisture from the air and traps it. These healing, moisturizing
qualities are why many expensive cosmetics contain premium honey. Raw honey
is even used to help treat wounds and prevent scarring and it encourages
growth of new tissues while hydrating skin. Honey naturally leaves skin soft
and supple. It also fights off bad bacteria, tightens pores, protects skin
from sun damage, and moisturizes.
Dry Skin Remedy Recipes
Here are two simple ways Aunt Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey can
help your skin feel more supple.
Aunt Sue’s Dry Skin Remedy
This soothing, dry-skin solution is easy and effective, taking only
minutes to make with three simple ingredients.
1 tablespoon Aunt Sue’s Raw

Juice from ½ a lemon
Mix honey, olive oil and lemon
juice in a bowl. Apply lotion to dry areas and let sit for 20 minutes. Wipe off
with a warm washcloth. Repeat as needed.
Homemade Honey Hand Balm
Easy to make, this hand balm does wonders for dry skin and can be used as
a lotion, hair conditioner or cuticle cream, as well.
½ cup coconut oil
¼ cup almond oil
5 tablespoons beeswax pastilles
1 tablespoon shea
1 ½ tablespoons Aunt
Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey
10−20 drops of lavender oil
8-ounce glass jar, or several small
tins with lids

honey and lavender oil into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in
