Honey is sweet to your skin!
Raw honey is incredible for your skin thanks to its antibacterial properties and skin-saving antioxidants. Raw honey can help you regain your glow.
The main skin-saving properties of honey.
- Acne: Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention.
- Aging: Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down aging.
- Complexion boost: It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow.
- Pores: Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.
Honey has all kinds of facial cleansing powers!
Sweet news, it’s not some crazy new beauty craze: Honey is the oldest skin-care ingredient and has been used extensively for both medical and skin-care purposes.
If you’ve got skin issues, honey’s a great go-to because it has antibacterial properties, anti-inflammatory properties, and it nurtures the skin. Honey’s particularly suitable for sensitive skin.
You might not think of the thick, sweet stuff as a salve for breakouts, but honey’s antibacterial powers are so strong that it can help acne. Honey has a very low pH making it difficult for bacteriato survive. It’s about a 3.5 on average on the pH scale, and a lot of bacteria needs to thrive in closer to a 7 on the scale.
From an actual testimonial…
“I’ve got to tell you what happened to my skin using the honey-based cleansing powder… first there was the luxurious feeling of being clean and it felt like the finest cashmere.
Almost immediately, I noticed a slight difference in my skin. Some spots where my (cursed) adult acne were healing appeared smaller, less angry and red, and my skin had an incredible plumpness to it. My skin felt really clean and soft and I didn’t feel the need to double cleanse with anything else.
In a few days, my acne spots were almost invisible and my skin looked great.
On the seventh day, my complexion was relatively clear. I didn’t get any new breakouts during the week.” – RL
