Wash Your Face with Honey!

Written by Stephanie on February 19th, 2014.      0 comments

I have cleansed, toned and moisturised my face for just about every day for 30 years (now I'm feeling old!).  It is part of my daily routine, and it just doesn't feel right when I can't do it.  I buy all my skincare through a fantastic New Zealand natural skincare company - Oasis Beauty, which I love.  They are currently out of stock of my cleanser and I'm completely out.  I was wondering what I could do in the meantime, other than use soap (which of course I could use).  And I thought "Of course!  Honey!"

I got about a teaspoon or so of Sweetree Honey in the palm of my hand, added a touch of water and massaged it over my face, then let it sit for a while.  Of course it is sticky so you need to make sure you pull back your hair!  Then I rinsed it off.  It's quick and easy to do and feels great afterwards!  Give it a try!

Why is Honey so Good for your Skin?

  1. It is antibacterial and antimicrobial, so it is great for acne treatment and prevention
  2. It is slightly drying, so it will help soak up any pimples or oiliness.
  3. It soaks into your skin and is extremely moisturizing and soothing. It helps create a glow on your skin.
  4. Full of beneficial enzymes and antioxidants that can help with anti-aging.
  5. It’s great for acne, aging skin, normal skin, dry skin … honey loves every type of skin
  6. It is healing and helps repair sores and scars.
  7. It’s 100% natural and great for your skin!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
