Honey is a natural remedy and a combination of the sauna and honey helps fight ailments of the body. It is one of the most unique gifts of nature for us. Our ancestors used it for the treatment of various diseases, they used it preparing food and drinks. Although the properties of honey have not been studied for so long, it has not been a barrier to its use for thousands of years. In ancient times, when people felt sick, they did not go to the doctor first, they went to the sauna, where they used natural remedies that they had at home. People often visit the sauna not only for relaxation, but also for the purpose of cleansing the skin, exfoliating the top layer of skin, reducing the traces of cellulite, and losing weight faster. In the sauna, the skin is exposed to heat, gentle steam, which warms the skin, helps to relax and stimulates the cleansing process. Depending on the goals, we use honey with other natural remedies to enhance the effect of honey.
When using honey in the sauna, it is necessary to follow the basic rules in order to achieve maximum benefits. Skin scrubbing procedures with honey must be performed in the sauna when the skin warms up. To exfoliate dead skin, honey is usually mixed with salt, coffee grounds, or sugar.
We usually scrub the skin during the second entrance to the sauna. Honey - coffee scrub is best used after wiping with the vanta because it is necessary to maintain this mass for at least 20-30 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. We scrub sensitive skin areas very carefully or not at all. Exfoliation is not a massage, so it is not necessary to do it for very long. Better short but intense. After scrubbing, rinse with lukewarm water and resist from contrasting procedures. With this action we remove dead epidemic cells, the skin becomes elastic, regenerative processes are activated.
After mixing honey with coffee grounds together we get not only a scrub but also a mask. This mask is primarily beneficial in that the structure of coffee allows the vitamins and minerals in honey to enter the deeper layers of the skin, while cleansing and nourishing the skin. Second, the bee product, honey is the basis of the mask and thanks to its unique properties, creates a special film on the face and hair that retains moisture and at the same time does not clog pores. Third, the honey mask acts as lifting, and the effect is increased by the use of coffee.
The skin needs to be clean, warm, and in most cases dry. We can rub the existing contents of the mask with massage movements without rushing. It's ideal when it is done by another person, a bather, or a massagist. The contents of the mask are kept on the body for 15 to 30 minutes, after which you should go to the steam room, warm up and wait until the mass of the mask softens. Then wash it with warm water and of course not to use any detergents or shampoos.
Remember that there are no one-product-fits-all cosmetics. Before using honey-based products, make sure you are not allergic to them.
