Honey - Home Remedy

A few months ago, I had read that honey is the best facial mask. So I've been trying it to see if I notice a difference. Well, I did notice my face was smoother. I also noticed that my acne decreased!

I went back on to the internet to find out what exactly honey does and they said it's GREAT for acne because it closes the pores.

Just a little neat FYI that may work for ya!

Re: Honey - Home Remedy

Thanks! Yeah Ive tried that mask before and couldnt really tell if it was making a difference or not. But at that time I think I was doing too much to my face and Ive found that leaving my face alone, like only washing it once a day with a wet washcloth is best, so ill have to give this a try again and see. It works because honey is antibacterial, they used to use these to dress soldiers wounds so they wouldnt get infected before they came up with other antiseptic things.

Re: Honey - Home Remedy

I LOVE information like that!!

Well, it's good to know that it seems to target sores/open wounds etc for reduction.

Then I guess it's a waste of time to put it anywhere else that I want to reduce in size. ;-)

Re: Honey - Home Remedy

Just from my experience, it made my face really itchy. I could have an allergy, who knows, but i couldn't stand this home remedy.

How long do you leave the honey on your face?

Re: Honey - Home Remedy
