Does having honey, salt and clay on the shelf in your bathroom sound like a weird idea? Are you wondering what would make you include them in your beauty routine?

Let’s Look at 6 Ways You Can Use Honey, Salt and Clay for Your Health & Beauty

Would you agree that honey and salt are valuable? Yes, maybe not so much clay, right? What’s there in a piece of mud? So what are the practical skin benefits of these natural ingredients?

Throw away your face wash, face mask, peeling, shampoo, your toothpaste and even your intimate wash and replace all of these chemical-loaded fancy products with a jar of honey, a little bit of salt and a heap of clay. Sounds crazy?  

1.    Honey Facial Cleanser

Raw honey has antibacterial and antibiotic effects. It clears impurities and it’s a perfect sole-ingredient homemade face wash for all skin types. You can use it if you have oily skin as well as dry or sensitive skin.

2.    Honey & Salt Peeling

Mix a teaspoon of sea salt into a tablespoon of honey and you have a quick homemade peeling with a double effect: It gently removes dead skin cells with small honey and salt crystals as well as with enzymes contained in honey. Your skin is then perfectly smooth and bright and ready for a good face mask.

3.    Rhassoul Clay & Honey Face Mask

Rhassoul Clay is a natural detox ingredient number 1. It absorbs impurities and nourishes skin with minerals like silica, magnesium, potassium and calcium which improve skin condition. And honey is a rich resource of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. It effectively hydrates and brightens up your skin.

Mix a tablespoon of Rhassoul Clay with a tablespoon of raw honey into a paste and you get a great face mask for calming irritated skin and nourishing and rejuvenating mature skin.

4.    Honey Intimate Wash

The most important factor in intimate hygiene is PH. Female intimate areas naturally protect themselves with lower PH factor making the environment slightly acidic and therefore hostile to dangerous bacteria. Curiously the PH of honey is identical to the PH of a healthy vagina which is 3.2 or 3.5 to 4.5 making it perfect natural intimate wash.

The antibacterial effect, gentle abrasiveness of its small crystals and generous supply of minerals and enzymes together with its sweet taste make raw honey a smart ingredient of natural DIY toothpaste.

Add a pinch of salt into a tablespoon of honey and you get an all-natural toothpaste with a pleasant taste which effectively cleanses tartar and protects against tooth decay.
