Wash your face with raw honey and enjoy clear skin that glows all day long. Sounds strange? Yes it does. We all start feeling stickiness on our face as soon as we imagine applying honey to it, but the fact is honey is a natural and effective way to cleanse your skin naturally.
Despite the fact that it sounds crazy, trying cleansing your face with raw honey is worth it. Wash your face with a homemade honey cleanser and you will be surprised to see the outcome. Honey is known for its incredible skin nourishing properties since it not only helps cleanse the skin but also keeps it hydrated. Commercially sold cleansers and face wash besides removing dirt and impurities from your skin, also leave it devoid of natural oils, thereby activating your sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Honey, on the other hand, nourishes the skin by removing the impurities only, without stripping the skin of protective oils.
How to use honey for facial cleansing?
Start by washing your face with lukewarm water. Take half teaspoon of honey on your finger tips and rub your fingers together to gently warm the honey. You can also add a few drops of warm water to the honey to get a spreadable consistency. Now apply it to your face smoothly and massage into the skin in circular motion. Now leave it on for 8 to 10 minutes, but this is optional. If you don’t have time you can simply wash your face off with lukewarm water. Pat your face dry with a clean towel and then finish by applying a toner.
Honey works well on all skin types but it makes an ideal facial cleanser for sensitive skin, especially for people suffering from eczema and rosacea. The natural antimicrobial and probiotic properties of honey also make it an effective anti-acne remedy. Wash your face with honey twice a day for a couple of weeks and see dramatic reduction in acne breakouts.
The type of honey you use for cleansing your face definitely makes a difference. It is strongly recommended that you use all-natural honey, without any preservatives. If you cannot find fresh honey directly removed from the hive, use store bought honey that claims to be raw and unfiltered because there is a high probability that this is minimally processed and all of its antibacterial properties have not been blasted out of it.
