I found that many people use honey so i gave it a try this moning was my third wash, only i sprinkled baking soda on the honey an d it made a really soft scrub! It felt si good! Anyway by this third wash (yesterday mornong, last night and this morning wash) my face gfelt soo goid! My acne i had broke out was dried up and no longer red. And it alo doesnt hurt anymore. My face was sore from such a bad brek out! I lov this! Im on my way to pick up some raw organic honey to keep in my bathroom! And baking soda! I really like the feeling of the baking soda! Thanks for sharing a great tip and seriously i may never go bak to regular face wash again!

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.

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!

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

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!
