BB91416_5 Beauty DIYs Using Honey

It’s been quite some time since I’ve talked about some beauty DIYs. Once in awhile, I notice my skin, hair, etc. need a little extra TLC from the change in weather, and I know I have better results when I use all natural products like honey, coconut oil, and other natural ingredients.

The best part about these beauty DIYs is that you can easily make them at home with very little time and effort. I don’t know about you, but I love DIYs are that effective and simple.

Honey has so many wonderful properties for your skin and hair. It replenishes hydration and helps to heal any acne, scarring, etc. on your skin. If you want to treat your skin weekly, you can simply rub raw honey into your skin instead of washing your face in the morning or evening. It gives your skin a break from chemicals in face wash, and it helps soothe, clean, and treat your skin.

1| Hair Mask

Ingredients: Honey and Coconut Oil.

This treatment will hydrate your hair, repair some damage from hot tools, and it will give your hair extra shine! If your hair has been looking dull and lifeless like mine (tbh it’s not pretty) I would definitely recommend it.

2| Brightening Face Scrub

Ingredients: Honey, One Lemon, and Sugar.

I have been using lemon so much from drinking hot water with lemon in the morning, to making this DIY for a skin-brightening, face scrub. You only need three ingredients to create a scrub that will brighten your skin after a few treatments.

3| Cuticle Treatment

Ingredients: Honey, Apple Cider Vinegar, and Coconut Oil.

I don’t know about you guys, but I need to take better care of my nails! My nails and cuticles have been horrible recently because I don’t have time to keep up with them weekly. So, I treat myself to a little treatment every other week to keep them moisturized and maintained.

4| Sunburn Treatment

Ingredients: Honey and Aloe Vera.

Awhile back, I fell asleep outside for almost an hour without any sun protection. When I woke up—I had two lines of sunburn. I knew aloe vera and ice were essentials, but combining honey and aloe vera is helpful for relieving your skin. I would definitely recommend this if you experience sunburn.

5| Coffee Body Scrub

Ingredients: Honey, Coffee Grounds, Olive Oil, and Brown Sugar.

You all know how much I love to use body scrubs on a weekly basis. Recently, I’ve been taking a break from Lush’s Cup O’ Coffee to create a simple, DIY version myself. You only need a few ingredients to give your skin the treatment it deserves. This will remove dead skin cells and soften your skin.

I hope this gave you a little inspiration to try a new DIY treatment for your hair, skin, etc. Make sure to leave a comment if you try any of these DIYs, or if you have a different DIY you want to share.

    Honey is used so much in body and hair treatments. Will be giving these a try.

  • I used to make the exact same coffee body scrub a while ago, it is so nice!
    I will have to try the face scrub, since I’m running out soon.

    • I love making DIYs with coffee because it works wonders for my skin!

  • I’ve heard of the face scrub although I’ve been reluctant to try it. But the others I’ve never heard of. I would never think to put honey on my hair. Interesting 🙂

    • You won’t regret it because honey is a master product for clearing and cleaning your skin!

  • Sarah Jean

    I can attest to the fact that honey is awesome for both skin and hair!

  • I always hear about people using honey for various things – I was recently completely bitten up by mosquitoes & read that honey helps that, too! Good to know!

    • Thanks for your comment, Allison! I never heard of using them for mosquito bites, but now I’ll give that a try ASAP!

    Honey is so good! There is also this lip scrub with honey and sugar that leave your lips so soft and renew. You should probably give it a try as well!

    • It’s such an underrated product for beauty! I will definitely try that for a lip treatment!

  • I really want to try the body scrub! I’ve never made a scrub myself but it would make much more sense to because it would save so much money! I use self tanners a lot so I really have to make sure I exfoliate often

    • It works wonders for your skin and leaves it feeling incredibly soft! You will be amazed how much money you’ll save when you make some of your own beauty treatments.

  • Lori Lyons Luhrman

    Honey is just fabulous for everything! This is a great list…I don’t often use DIY beauty treatments but I really want to try this brightening facial scrub! Thanks for sharing!

    • You’re going to love using the face scrub so much that you won’t want to buy a scrub for yourself anymore!

  • Wow, I never knew about these! Honey’s my go-to when I have a sore throat. I’ll have to try these out!

    • I love using honey for a sore throat, too! But I also use it for so many beauty DIYs! It’s my secret beauty weapon!

  • Never heard of a hair mask before. Sounds like something I may have to try. Such great ideas – thank you!!

    • You will love it and your hair will love it, too! It works wonders for repairing your hair if you use hot tools often.

  • Pinning this! I’ve been wanting to try out beauty DIY’s for awhile now, and I love anything with honey in it! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you so much, Cara! So happy to know you’ve enjoyed reading it!

  • Ooooh these all sound so simple yet indulgent! Do you know the actual use of apple cider vinegar in cuticle treatment/why it works?? Honey makes sense for moisturization…but vinegar? Now I’m curious!!

    Coming Up Roses

    • Awesome questions, Erica! Apple cider vinegar is used as a natural cleanser for your cuticles and the honey aids with repairing any damages to this area of your skin/nails!

  • Had no idea about the cuticles! Mine are so so terrible right now! Trying this today and getting my nails back into shape

    • You won’t regret it! And mine are in pretty rough shape as well!

  • Taylor Smith

    Ok but the one about sunburn is SO TRUE. I use that mixture on my husband because without fail he gets burned every time he steps in the sun (even with copious amounts of sunscreen)!

    • Yes! Josh is the same way with getting sunburn all the time, so he was my guinea pig for this DIY back in July!

  • This may be a stupid question, but would the hair mask be hard to take off? I need to try some of these!

    • Not at all! Keep in mind, you’re not using a ton of honey when you’re making these products. 🙂

  • Valerie Vanderheiden-Rath

    Had no idea that honey is an effective sunburn treatment. I will have to remember that.

    • YES! So many people don’t know that but it works wonders!

  • Jessica Hughes

    The face scrub looks amazing, I will have to try that soon!

    • I would definitely recommend it considering how soft it leaves your skin feeling!

  • Lisa

    These look great! I love natural DIY beauty recipes.

  • I never would have thought you could do all of the above with honey! Thanks so much for sharing. I’m definitely going to have to try these!
