How Raw Honey Can Help Acne-Prone Skin
Raw honey not only tastes great and gives you better internal health, but used externally, it can reveal clearer skin naturally. It’s great for use on sensitive skin, acne-prone skin, inflamed skin, scarred skin, and dry, oily, or mature skin.
In particular though, raw honey can help acne-prone skin clear up and look refined and ravishing once again. It’s incredibly versatile and can be used in a number of ways. Do you want to see clearer skin? Then use raw honey for your best results!
Here are some ways to try it:
– Raw Honey Mask
Over clean, dry skin, smooth a layer of raw honey onto your skin. Then sit back and relax for 15 to 30 minutes while the antibacterial, antifungal, and antioxidant properties it naturally contains go to work on your skin.
– Raw Honey Cleanser
In the morning, massage raw honey in circular motions onto your damp skin. Let it sit for 2 to 5 minutes and then rinse away for soft, restored skin. At night, be sure to remove any makeup completely first before using raw honey to cleanse your skin.
– Raw Honey Exfoliant
Even acne-prone skin needs exfoliation. Without it, you’ll continue the cycle of breakouts. Dry skin flakes up and leaves dead skin cells to clog up your pores. Along with your natural skin oils, the result becomes acne. Because raw honey naturally contains alpha-hydroxy acids, it’s a gentle way to exfoliate. Just massaging it onto damp skin will exfoliate it enough without irritating skin and causing redness.
How does raw honey stack up against medicines that have long been used for acne treatment? According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are potential side effects that you may encounter by using acne treatments that contain benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. Allergic reactions can occur with using one or both of these medicines. The purpose of using benzoyl peroxide is to eliminate the acne-causing bacteria in the skin which should reveal clearer skin.
But raw honey does that for you naturally. There are no dangers for using raw honey on your skin, though if you want to partake in the healing benefits it can provide, you must be sure that it is raw or unpasteurized. Not only will it be best for your skin, but it will taste better too and help you heal inside and out.
