"Why is the honey in the bathroom?" my husband, Peter, asks. Well, you see, I ran out of my regular face soap...and the store was out of it too...and a read on Pinterest....so I thought I'd try it...
...and it works, wonderfully I might add, and is probably saving me over $100 a year, which is even better.
Why did I ever try honey as a face wash? I am a Pinterest junkie; it is one of my favourite ways to waste time. I had pinned using honey as a face wash long ago, but never tried it. When I ran out if soap I even tried Kieran's special baby soap, but it dried out my face and I started getting acne. So I thought, what have I got to lose, I'll try the honey and if it doesn't work nobody needs to know.
I didn't know honey was water soluble, I guess it makes sense, I just never thought about it before. I learned it is also antibacterial and moisturizing. Since I have started using it (September) I have had no breakouts and my skin has not dried out. My only suggestion is when rinsing it off just make sure you get it all. There have been a couple times I have missed some and later in the day I think, " why is my chin sticky?"
To use it is very simple: wet face, put honey on hands and wash face, rinse off. As soon as the honey touches your wet hands it thins out. For a bonus, if any gets in your mouth it is delicious.
Give it a try, at least once, or give it a real chance and try it for two weeks. If you tried it let me know what you thought in the comments.
