Inheriting influences from the rooted regime of her mother and illustrious silver-screen queen Sridevi, Janhvi Kapoor navigates through her relationship with her health, beauty, and wellness while maintaining a minimal focus towards simpler skincare. While umpteen chemical and commercial products seem to be in the peripheral, the young actress in their stead opts for homemade hibiscus hair oil massages or refreshing fruit facials right from the time of her morning routine up till just moments before red carpet appearances. Kapoor is also known to use honey in her DIY skincare recipes which can benefit your skin with a humble and holistic approach.

3 ways you can use honey in your homemade skincare recipes:
Yogurt and honey face mask for dead skin
A powerhouse of essential nutrients, honey has been an evident favorite of nutritionists, dieticians, and beauty experts in tales as old as time. To make the mask, mix in one tablespoon of yogurt, a teaspoon of honey and any mashed seasonal fruit of your choice together into a paste. Slather the same onto your face evenly and use a cut-up orange to scrub the mixture in. Wash up with cold water and thank us later for the smooth and glowy after-effect.
Exfoliating sugar and honey lip scrub
Easy to whip up and efficient, this lip scrub is a classic combination of a teaspoon of honey and almond oil each blended in together with two teaspoons of sugar. Using the tip of your fingers, gently massage the scrub onto your lips in circular strokes and slough the dead, dry cells off (Warning: try not to eat all of it up, as delicious as it may be). Rinse off with warm water after and finish up with a lip balm of your choice to lock in the moisture and in turn you’ll have a pout pinker and plumper than ever before.
Aloe vera and honey facial cleanser
Tough on bacteria, and beneficial in the long run, this homemade cleanser made with a modest mix of a quarter cup aloe vera and honey mixed in with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, can also be stored in sealed jars or dispensers for months. To use, shake your bottle and slowly begin to massage the paste into your skin and let it sit for about a minute, and then gently wipe off with a damp washcloth that you may rinse as per required. However if you do have any allergic reactions to pollen, or any other bee-related products steer clear of using honey in your skincare routine. Remember, patch testing is always a good idea.
