For you honey-fanatics: more beauty recipes and uses for honey for food (with this thread, who woulda thunk to actually EAT honey?).
You're so smart Spastica! One day I aspire to be the baking soda/natural-body-care guru you are! For now, I'll just keep asking questions.
I've definitely noticed my face is more balanced longer when I use a small amt of baking soda mixed w/honey but I got scared about doing that after all the talk about over-exfoliating (however many pages back). And I always use a couple drops of jojoba after washing, even if I'm only water washing. It keeps me smoother and oil-free!
Observation by Spazzy.
I've tried honey by itself, honey with a little bit of baking soda (a miniscule pinch to cut the gooeyness of the honey), and honey with a hefty amount of baking soda. Honey and baking soda in any form seems to works better than the honey by itself. Also, I noticed that the more honey I squirt into my hand (inititally, I wanted to use the least amount possible to clean my face, but then I used a bigger blob yesterday, probably 3/4 to a full teaspoonful) and then I put a hefty shake of baking soda in it (I suppose I used 1/2 a teaspoon yesterday), my skin was glowing and it looked brighter.
Also, I've noticed that moisturizing my face with a dab of cocoa butter is clearing up darker marks and keeping my face smooth for 24 hours.
Perhaps I can use the smaller amount of honey and baking soda for daily cleaning and use the bigger blob of honey and more baking soda a few times a week for the bright spankin' glow.
Thought I'd share.
