Are you in a constant battle with your skin? Do you worry about new acne spots, sun damage, or wrinkles that seem to sprouting out of nowhere? This sounds like the beginning of another boring infomercial, but there truly is a product that can aid in all of your skin woes, in particular acne. What is this magical product? It's the wonderful sticky goo that a certain silly old bear named Winnie the Pooh absolutely adored: raw, organic honey! Now you may be thinking hold the phone, honey? The stuff I put in my tea and add to my favorite food products for added sweetness? You are most certainly correct! Honey is a natural humectant, which helps retain moisture. It's also a fantastic exfoliant that aids in removal of dead skin cells and helps acne (particularly white heads) come to the surface. Some of the few ways raw, organic honey can be used on your skin includes:
- As a daily face wash
- An overnight acne spot treatment
- A skin exfoliant (can be used anywhere on the body, and gentle enough for lip area)
- An added skin moisturizer when combined with your favorite lotion
- Calm acne ridden/rosacea prone skin
- Help remove new and old acne scars (decrease in redness)
When beginning to use any new product, make sure you always do a patch test a day or two prior to beginning a new regime. Honey can cause allergic reactions due to the natural pollen that is in raw, organic honey. Results may vary from person to person; but you can usually begin to see results about a month after daily face washing with said product. This is also a gentle enough item to be used both daily and twice daily for your skin. It's definitely a surprising product, but one that can make a significant change in your skin and possibly your life. It's always best to find that one staple product within your cleansing regime; and raw, organic honey should definitely receive top billing.
