Honey is so good. It’s seriously so delicious. It is wonderful as a sweetener in baked goods, sauces, teas, among other food and drink. But did you also know that honey is amazing for your skin as well? It is one of the best kept secrets for some reason yet works so well to treat acne and prevent future outbreaks.

Honey contains numerous anti-microbial properties and is a natural antioxidant. Honey fights microbial infections that cause acne without irritating your skin. This sweet goodness literally pulls out impurities from your pores that would normally stay clogged with festering bacteria and oil that cause pimples.  Honey will also help restore your skin’s texture and reduce damage done to your skin by the sun and daily environments you come in contact with.

So how do you use honey on your skin? It’s actually quite simple, though a little sticky and messy! Make sure you wear a towel draped around your neck or exchange your clothes for a robe during this treatment process. Take a half cup of honey and pour it in a microwave safe bowl. Warm it for under 30 seconds but make sure it’s not hot before you apply it to your skin. Lukewarm is what the temperature should be. Apply the sticky goodness to your face and neck and let it sit on your skin for thirty minutes. It will definitely drip so this is why you need to follow our instructions for proper attire while trying this honey treatment! Once the honey has sat on your skin for thirty minutes, rinse off with warm water and a gentle cleanser. Better yet, cleanse off in the shower to make sure you remove all honey. Pat your skin dry and feel how smooth and soft your skin feels! Make sure to apply an oil-free moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and smooth.

Honey will not clog your pores or make you break out further, as long as you are not allergic to it. It is an amazing way to fight acne and nourish your skin at the same time. Trust us at Acne Skin Site – It’s worth every messy drop!
