OK, so if you’ve gone to my Natural Beauty page and seen that gorgeous blond, you’ve probably asked yourself … “I wonder if that’s Lesli?”

Of course it is, silly!!  Who else would it be? LOL (wink, wink).

Oh, alright — it’s not really me!  So here’s the real truth … and I can only tell you this because we’re friends…

NATURAL BEAUTY AT ANY AGE

As I write this, I’m 55 years old young and I have very, very, very few wrinkles! Now, admittedly, that could be because I’ve kept them plumped up with fat, LOL — but all that “fat stuff” is about to change — and we shall see how the wrinkle situation handles itself. I expect it will go very well 🙂

Why do I have such confidence? Because I have a natural beauty routine that’s super simple and super yummy!

I WASH MY FACE WITH HONEY!

Not just any honey — and certainly not the honey from the plastic honey bear on your grocery shelf (which by the way is rarely 100% honey, it’s more likely corn syrup).  The honey you want to use is an all natural, organic, crystallized raw honey. If you can get it locally sourced all the better.

If you can’t get it locally (and quite often I can’t in my area), this is my favorite backup source for Raw Crystallized Organic Honey.  I love this brand — YS Organic Bee Farms —  so much because I get fantastic results with it. Yes, I’ve tried a few others and I wasn’t near as happy with them, so if your first attempts aren’t amazing — please, please, please, try this brand before you give up on the idea! YS Organic Bee Farms honey is harvested with extreme care, 100% pure, natural, unheated and unfiltered, fresh from healthy beehives.

The results produce a superior, energy packed honey with the highest possible levels of live enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and healing agents. Some people think “no matter, your skin can’t absorb it anyway“. That’s just not true. Think of all the prescription drugs (uggh — natural beauty killers) that now come on a “patch” because of your skins ability to absorb whatever you put on it.

That’s more important than you might think, my friends, because whatever chemical laden facial cleansers and body care destroying items you’re currently using are also being absorbed directly into your system. They are endocrine disruptors and filled with obesogens — which make you obese! Get the connection?

OK, good!

Before we move on, let me just share with you that I absolutely prefer the crystallized honey verses a smoother honey — and I’ve used both. The crystals act as a very gentle scrub, which is lovely. Oh, and did I mention it smells amazing? I definitely prefer to use honey on my skin every day, rather than put it in my body. It feels quite decadent! But when I am going to eat a bit of honey or use it in a recipe, this Raw Crystallized Organic Honey is divine!

SO NOW YOU’VE GOT YOUR LOVELY HONEY, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH IT?

Seems obvious, right? And it is. Wash your face with it silly!

  1. Wet your face with warm water — scoop up a bit of your organic raw honey (just a bit will do) and scrub a dub dub your way to glistening, glowing, natural beauty!
  2. Rinse. Pat dry.
  3. Moisturize with 100% Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. I use the exact same Extra Virgin Coconut Oil I use in the kitchen to cook with — not the same jar, of course. I transfer some to a cosmetic size jar for my medicine cabinet. Just a tiny bit goes a long way.

Sound crazy?  It works and your skin will love you for it! It’s going to be so soft you won’t be able to stop touching your face, LOL. Seriously! Sometimes I have to say to myself “back off lady!” 😉

By the way, talking about natural beauty solutions, the coconut oil is a miracle worker for every part of your body — inside and out. I’ll be writing about that very soon!

What are some of your favorite natural beauty solutions?
