The Ultimate Skin Care Moisturizer: Honey



Hide those $150 jars of wrinkle cream and trash that box of half used, over hyped, brand name lotion… when it comes to your skin, there’s a new kid in town… and her name is Honey!

Celebrity skin care guru Jackie Gomez, who perfects the faces of Zoe Saldana, Beyonce, and Sara Ramirez, has just partnered up with the National Honey Board (yeah, we didn’t know that existed either) to bring the good news:  that you don’t need to pay for expensive treatments to get that year round healthy skin and lips glow.

“Honey’s properties make it an ideal, do-it-yourself beauty ingredient. Not only is it a great all-natural moisturizer for skin, but you’ll also spend a fraction of the cost and look like a million dollars.” Says Gomez.

We all know that the winter months are harshest to our skin, so Jackie has come to the rescue and released some of her  favorite at home recipes that are cost effective, and should have you looking radiant in no time! 

Try them out and let us know your results!
