Honey for Acne-Prone Skin
Did you know that honey has natural anti-bacterial properties? Honey is a traditional topical treatment for infected wounds. It can be effective on antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. The other bonus is that honey also attracts moisture, which keeps your skin from drying out. With a little bit of honey as well some other natural ingredients, you can make your own acne fighting treatment in the comfort of your own home. Here is what you need:
- Water at room temperature
- Mild Liquid Facial Soap
Combine ¼ cup of honey with ½ cup of tepid water and 2 tablespoons of mild liquid soap. Pour the mixture into an easy-to-use container with a spout. Use nightly in place of your normal facial cleanser, rinsing thoroughly with warm water. You should see an improvement in your skin within a few days. This mixture will keep for up to two weeks if stored in a closet, away from your bathroom or other sources of moisture.
