Wash your face with honey! - Page 38
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!
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.
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.
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!
