DIY Honey Tea Face Wash

DIY Honey Tea Face Wash

Some people have naturally dry skin, so they frantically look for cleansers and moisturizers that help lock in moisture. It can be difficult to find cleansers that don’t dry your face out, which is why it is better to make your own with simple, natural ingredients. Including ingredients like vitamin E oil, raw honey, essential oils, and raw honey in your face wash can do wonders for your skin. Let’s highlight some of the key ingredients in this face wash. 

Honey

Honey continues to show up in skin care products because of its beauty benefits. A 2016 research paper found that raw honey exhibited antimicrobial and wound-healing properties. Raw honey may also be great for people with acne, which affects about 50 million people a year in the United States. The antimicrobial nature of honey may make it an effective acne treatment. A separate study found that medical grade kanuka honey with a 10% glycerine combination was more effective than an antibacterial soap. 

Chamomile

The Ancient Egyptians and Greeks used to apply crushed chamomile flowers to the skin to treat dryness and redness. Thousands of years later, people still incorporate chamomile into skin care products, and researchers continue to discover how chamomile can benefit the skin. Chamomile contains apigenin, a powerful antioxidant that works to lower inflammation by combating inflammation-causing chemicals. The anti-inflammatory nature of chamomile can be attributed to apigenin, chamazulene, and bisoprolol. These compounds have soothing and healing benefits that are excellent for sensitive skin. 

Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin E oil is a powerful serum that may help reduce the signs of aging. Some people use this oil as a skin-conditioning agent overnight in order for the skin to completely absorb it. Vitamin E oil can be an excellent spot treatment for acne scarring. The high antioxidant content of vitamin E works to promote blood circulation, which is why some people notice a difference in skin firmness and structure after topical application. A 2013 review found that vitamin E oil and other antioxidants can be effective treatments for delaying wrinkles. 

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

One study found that ylang ylang essential oil may boost self-esteem and reduce anxiety after topical application or inhalation. This is supported by other studies and anecdotal reports that had similar findings. Ylang ylang essential oil exhibits antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties, so it may be effective at treating fungal infections and inflammation.

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense exhibits antiseptic properties, which may be powerful enough to fight tooth decay and bad breath. For skin care, the astringent properties help protect skin cells to encourage a more youthful appearance. Frankincense essential oil may also work to reduce blemishes, shrink large pores, or help tighten up the skin. Just make sure to dilute it in a carrier oil prior to applying on the skin.
