I am such a big advocate for what we believe to be the ultimate, natural, all around healing potion.
Thanks to Cleopatra’s luxurious baths, this sweet treat has become a favorite with one and all not to be missed in your beauty regime.
Besides Cleopatra, there were other beauties from the past, who swear by this bee's treat being an indispensable ingredient in beauty treatments.
Pollution, dirt, and other chemical agents in the air make the skin lose its ability to retain water, making it look dry, wrinkled and aged.
The natural hydrating and antioxidant properties trap and seal the moisture, rejuvenate your skin and cleanse your complexion leaving it soft and supple.
This sweet delight, in its purest form is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
Beauticians we've spoken with suggest using it abundantly, to garner a more radiant complexion and in turn a more radiant you!
Many skin care products like baths, shower gels, face creams, skin lotions, moisturizers, body scrubs and even baby products contain this pure ingredient, albeit in minimal amounts.
Here are a couple of ways that you can treat yourself to some simple, yet natural skin care remedies in your own home;
** 1/4 c. added to your bath will keep your skin soft and supple.
** Dry skin = 1 tsp. vegetable oil each and 1/4 tsp. of lemon juice.
Pat it on dry areas of your skin, leave for 10 minutes and rinse with water.
** Make a moisturizing mask with 1 tsp. of this bee's treat, 1 egg yolk, 1/2 tsp. almond oil and 1 tsp. yogurt.
Apply on your face, neck and other parts of your body.
Leave for 15 minutes and rinse off with water.
Your skin will feel moisturized and polished with tightened pores.
** For silky smooth skin, mix 1/4 c. with 3 tsp. of rosewater.
Apply to your face and neck, avoiding sensitive areas around the eyes.
Massage well, rinse with lukewarm water and enjoy the sensation.
** Open the pores on your face by placing a cloth dipped in warm water.
Smear some on your face for 20-30 minutes.
Rinse, first with warm water and then cold water to close the pores.
** Indulge your skin with the paste of 1 tsp. of a Bee's treat, 1 egg white, 1 tsp. glycerin and flour.
Smooth it over your face, throat, leaving it on for 10 minutes and then washing it off with warm water.
Your skin will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
** 4 Tbs. of whole milk powder and 2 Tbs. bee's product makes an excellent baby bath.
Your baby (young & old) will love ya for it!

Tips: How to skin a salmon fillet: Place skin-side down.
Starting at the tail end, slip a long knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding down firmly with your other hand.
Gently push the blade along at a 30° angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.
To toast sesame seeds, heat a small dry skillet over low heat. Add seeds and stir constantly, until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes.
Transfer to a small bowl and let cool.
We hope you enjoy!Tweet
