The benefits of raw honey extend well beyond its sweet taste. From curing minor skin blemishes and wounds, to soothing sore throats and laryngitis, and adding/locking in moisture to skin and hair, this is one gift from Mother Nature that keeps on giving.
The trick to locking in that summer glow you worked all season for is keeping your skin healthy and hydrated. To keep skin moisturized, pores need to be open and free from dirt and oil. Slough off dead skin, moisturize and scent your skin with this sugar scrub recipe from our lead massage therapist, Keith Launui.
