SEE IT ALL, IN MY VIDEO BELOW!

No worries, not a fan of videos… Below find the entire BLOG VERSION: “Buckwheat Honey Benefits on Skin”!
INTRO- BUCKWHEAT HONEY BENEFITS ON SKIN
Synonymous for being one of the “darker” honey’s on the market. Buckwheat honey is adored by skin!
Best for anyone with: DRY, DULL, FLAKY SKIN –A FAV DURING WINTER MONTHS! Since every kind of honey, will target specific skin issues. One really has to play around to understand which your skin likes most!
Like how “Manuka” is best on acne prone skin OR “Thyme” honey is for anyone with blemish problems… Buckwheat honey though is magic on sad, sensitive, dry skin!
Buckwheat honey is collected from buckwheat flowers, which are super tiny. So bees work extra hard for this nectar!
This honey may not be as sweet as other honey’s… But buckwheat honey’s rich in vitamins, amazing for wound care, and it helps keep skin smooth/supple !
WHY USE BUCKWHEAT HONEY ON SKIN?
First, on skin – buckwheat honey is super anti-microbial (exfoliating + cleaning-up skin naturally, in a snap!) Also, this honey almost matches pH levels of skin, never drying. Last, it’s mega-loaded with antioxidants!
HONEY = world’s BEST and #1 face cleanser! Why?
- Exfoliates naturally
- Great on all skin types- fussy, acne, or allergy-prone skin…
- Removes dirt, grime & build-up from your complexion
- Never strips away your face’s natural oils
PLUS, it’s an antiseptic, antibiotic, antifungal & antibacterial! DON’T BELIEVE ME? THAT’S WHY HONEY NEVER ROTS!
ALWAYS BUY “UN”-PASTEURIZED/RAW BUCKWHEAT HONEY!
WHY? Pasteurized honey has been heated. During the heating process, good enzymes are killed off and naturally occurring healthy properties in honey too! Not good…
UNPASTEURIZED HONEY (or A.K.A RAW honey) still has all the amazing antioxidants and antimicrobial goodness your skin needs!
WHERE I BOUGHT MY BUCKWHEAT HONEY?
Found my jar, easily in the organic section at my grocery store (The Real Canadian Superstore). Paid $6, some seriously cheap, amazing skincare! Find buckwheat honey in any health food store, Whole Foods etc… Here’s some links to make it easier too:
WHY I LOVE BUCKWHEAT HONEY?
Because it’s darker and darker is better! Dark honey’s have the most minerals & antioxidants out of the honey pot! Big plus, if you’re eating or using it in skincare.
HOW TO USE BUCKWHEAT HONEY IN SKINCARE!
First and easiest way to use it: paint it on your face! Literally, I use a paint brush – well a facial one and paint it on. Let soak-in for several minutes, wash-off!
Should you want to get fancier. Happy to share a few DIY SKINCARE recipes using this honey too… Can’t expect any less from WhippedGreenGirl!
DIY BUCKWHEAT CREAM FACE CLEANSER
(Pretty cool recipe, I tried a few years ago I still like!)
- Measure coconut oil and buckwheat oil into a glass bowl.
- With an electric mixer, mix until forms a “whipped” – “fluffy” consistency. If it’s not fluffing up for you. Put the mix in the fridge for several minutes. It helps the coconut oil settle… Whip-it again to desired fluffy’ness!
Making this cleanser is another great way to sneak buckwheat honey benefits on skin! Truly, this recipe creates the perfect cream texture for a cream cleanser. Apply on face. It’ll lift-off grime naturally – wipe off! Store in glass, tinted jar – in a cool/dark place…
DRY SKIN WINTER BUCKWHEAT FACE MASK
- 1 tbsp KAOLIN CLAY
- 1 tbsp BUCKWHEAT HONEY
- 1 to 2 tbsp ROSE WATER (enough liquid to create a paste)
- 1 to 2 drops LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL
Mix all ingredients together in a glass or ceramic bowl. Apply paste to face. Leave 15 min. rinse-off.
(Always like to mention, avoid getting clay down drains, it’ll can clog them…)
