My skin is combination skin: oily in some parts, dry in others AND very prone to breakouts. That’s why I’m constantly searching for ways to clear up my skin without causing more acne to flare up, drying my skin, or making it into an oiled mess.
Honey is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and is known to help heal scarring. It also works as a moisturizer so for those of us with oily skin, use honey!
I looked up other ways to use honey and although there were many different recipes that really put honey to use, I picked the most simple! A spot treatment.
There are only a few easy steps to this process.
Originally when I read about this I did it in the most messy way possible! I dabbed a bit of honey on every single blemish (even the smallest ones) and went to sleep.
Even though it wasn’t extremely messy, my hair ended up with honey in it, and I had to wash my pillow case. But hey, honey isn’t bad for your hair and it didn’t stain , so whatever.
It left me feeling like this… Okay I’m exaggerating, but still!
My best tip for you guys though would be to follow these steps:
- Wash your face and apply a toner (like always) * I love using coal face from lush to wash my face *
Apply a small dab of honey on each blemish (really just the big ones that are screaming for a treatment)
Optional: Apply a bandaid or gauze over the honey (if wearing to bed this step is crucial)
Well, like I said earlier it was messy for me. I also didn’t follow the instructions completely and just rubbed a light layer of honey on my face. If you use the bandaid method you should be mess free.
Other than that though it smelled great, which may be the reason I’m still using honey for everything to be honest.
My face looked more clear from the minuscule blackheads and pimples. The big ones were less red as well as soothed and didn’t feel irritated. And overall my skin looked and felt good!
It was easy to remove from my face (I had to shower to get it out of my hair). And it did work as a moisturizer, my skin looked hydrated when I woke up and not like a had a rough night the day before.
Overall, I told you guys about it sooooo, I LIKED IT!
