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.
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!

Wash it off with warm water; it works better.
Honey is very moisturizing, so you probably will not need additional moisturizer. Give it a try and see. In the driest winter weather, the lower part of my cheeks gets flaky, so I put just a tiny dab of coconut oil on my fingers and rub it in there, after washing my face.
Last month, I slipped and scraped my upper cheek on the sidewalk. I had a scab about an inch in diameter. I washed it with honey daily and patted coconut oil onto it afterward. After 5 days the scab came off very smoothly and painlessly--it just sort of rinsed off with the honey--and then the area was pink for about another 5 days. Now there is no mark at all. I'm thrilled with how quickly and completely it healed!
