Honey is also known as a humectant. This means it will hold in moisture. You may find honey in many different lotions which will keep your skin feeling soft and smooth. You can also find it in lip balm like in the Burt’s Bees lip balm I use made with beeswax and honey. Beeswax and honey can both keep your lips feeling soft and smooth.
Athletes, including Olympic athletes, enjoy using honey as an all natural quick source of energy. If you are feeling tired before playing sports like basketball, baseball, volleyball, or football, you can take some honey to give you an extra boost of energy.
"Bee in the Know": Scientists found out that honey works just as well as over-the-counter cough medicine to make your scratchy throat feel better.
