Honey for blemishes...

post #1 of 69
Thread Starter 
So, I just read in a book that honey is an antibacterial, which makes it great to use on oily or broken out skin. It says to put a dab of honey on a blemish before you go to bed and put a band-aid over it and in the morning it will be gone!

I think it's very interesting... I'll have to give it a shot.:box:

Re: Honey for blemishes...

Another thing I like about the honey is that it doesn't dry out the skin, just the acne. I've tried some acne products that really dry everything out and then I have the issue of redness and peeling.

The honey is a bit sticky when you put it on. It basically stays that way. I've used it at night and wait about 15-20 minutes w/just the honey. I then apply the QHMJM on top of it. That dries out and doesn't cause any issues with honey and hair sticking to pillows, etc.

Honey is great...I use it as a face mask and sometimes I mix it with sugar for a facial scrub. I also use Queen Helen Mint Julep Mask too.

You can put a band aid on top of it.

Re: Honey for blemishes...

I tried this a couple of times and I'm sad to say that it did not do much, if anything, for me. I guess it's one of those things that works for some, but not all. Although it did make my skin feel nice and soft in the morning after I washed the honey off, lol.

Yes, honey is known for its soothing and anti-microbial properties. However, it is not a quick fix, nor does it clear pimples overnight. If it did, I would be drowning in the stuff, believe me... ;)

Re: Honey for blemishes...

A few weeks ago, I posted a question on oily skin/acne I believe. After some research, I decided to try a natural approach.

2 tbsp fullers earth clay
1 teaspoon honey
1 tbsp water or half & half (I had to use more)
1 drop essential oil of your choice (optional)

After 3 days of using this mask the acne is almost gone and the acne scars have lightened on my cheeks. I am satisfied with the results. Thank the Lord for that.

I also found it hard to locate the fullers earth clay because while there are plenty of health food stores, there are almost no natural/wholistic beauty stores. I found the earth clay in a spice store. I did find a company online that sells everything you could possible need. Mountain Rose Herbs | Bulk organic herbs, spices & essential oils
