I won't be able to read ALL these posts. But I got the gist of it and thought I'd have my 9.5 yo try it.  She's starting some hormonal changes and her skin has gotten a wee bit oilier and she's had some bumps near her nose.  I tried it first, advised her on how to try it in the shower and left it at that. She didn't seem thrilled but the next day I looked at her face and I kid you not the bumps were gone.  Previously I only had her wash with water and a Norwex body cloth.


Maybe they would have disappeared on their own that very same day, but they've stayed cleared and I've got a nice, chemical-free option for her.  She is really happy with the results, too.  We just used fairly local honey labeled raw but not raw to my standards.

This is so funny!  My hub is a beekeeper and we have an abundance of honey so I knew that honey was used in a lot of skin care so I thought "Why not be lazy and just use honey?"....Been doing it for a whilie now and feel good about it on multiple levels....I should have known to come look here first!   :)   I was surprised at how something so normally sticky kind of turns into this yummy rich non-sticky conditioner that I barely have to wash off...it just seems to absorb well and moisturize nicely!  Fun!

I use honey too. I only use raw honey because it has all the useful things. My skin also love honey. :) I'm almost 40, but my skin looks like 20 y.o.

A man can use honey. It's natural product.

I've never heard about "hair that turn into white". :)

Trying this now! Yummy!

Honey is an amazing natural substance and I am not surprised it works for you. I use Mama Nature's Queen B which is a natural beauty balm containing beeswax, honey royal jelly etc. I have been using it now for almost six months and my skin is the best it has ever been. It has definitely reduced the number of wrinkles and my skin is plumper and less saggy. It has also given my skin a lovely glow. I have lost count of the number of anti-wrinkle creams and serums I have tried and this is miles ahead of them all. Apparently a lot of the stars make up artists etc. have cottoned on to how good it is and it is going to be the next big thing so I'm going to buy a load in case it sells out!! If it's good enough for Keira Knightley then it's good enough for me.

I read this thread a couple of weeks ago and decided to give it a try. Mixed a dab of honey with a pinch of dried lavender and a pinch of steel cut oats....it made a wonderful scrub and I've been using it about every 3 days. So thanks!!!!

Hey, I applied the honey mixed with milk on my face and it made my face super soft!!!!! so I'd recommend you leave it on a few minutes and wash of in the shower. 


Also my skin colour looks more even!!! hope you try this mixture. 



post #754 of 761

post #755 of 761

Yes honey face wash is a great thanks giving this tip its a naturally good tip.

I have one tip for acne faces.

Acne Honey Face Mask Recipe:

For an acne mask, add a few drops of lemon juice and a few drops of essential oils of tea tree (melaleuca) and/or lavender oil.  Both of these oils are antibacterial and tea tree is anti microbial wiping out acne bacteria.

This is a great thread! Tho I don't think I'll ever make it thru the whole thing (I tried).

I like washing with honey. Been doing it for almost 2 weeks. I have to admit its a bit drying (could also just be the weather) and I haven't noticed a huge difference in my skin. I just broke out a little a couple days ago. I will say my breakouts have seemed to clear up much more quickly with honey.

I also started using coconut oil but that wasn't moisturizing enough so I bought some shea butter. Unfortunately it's not raw & I'm not sure how processed it is. It's the NOW brand.

Anyone have a good source for shea or good jojoba oil (I think I'd like to try that next)? Thanks!

I have used honey to wash my face off and on for 5 years (since I read about it on here!) and it is wonderful!  I love it!

MountainRoseHerbs.com is a great source of shea, t2009. smile.gif

I have quite sensitive skin so I have to be careful what I apply to it, I've tired lots of products, including a chemical peel but I had a reaction to it, but I also use the cupcake face mask from the body shop and it did work but your only supposed to use it once a week I think. I've heard of the honey face mask and I would love to try it but I was just wondering after you have washed off the honey would u wash it off with warm or cold water and after would you apply a moisturizer, and if so which one? smile.gif
