About a year ago I had severe acne and nothing was working. I was put on antibiotics which even made my face worse. I was very depressed. I read on this board about honey used as a face wash or a face mask for the treatment of acne and I can say without a doubt this saved my life. I stopped using all products including my antibiotics and used raw honey on my face twice a day. My regime was that, I apply a generous amount of honey on my face for at least 30 minutes or more and I rinse with warm water. After that I just apply my basic moisturiser. I did this twice a day. In just one week my face was better. In about 2 months my face was clear with no acne and my dermatologist was even surprised. All I use on my face now is honey and my moisturiser and my face is clear without post acne scares.

I tried using honey on my face for the first time last week. I bought a tub of Whole Foods house brand raw honey for less than $7. I really want to try manuka honey at some point, but...it's pretty expensive.Backstory: I'm still recovering from a bad reaction to a new product (it's been a couple months. grrr.) and what I need to fix is my lower face and forehead: severe clogging, zits that won't heal because the clogs have been so difficult to get rid of, and the eventual Dark Marks they generously leave in their wake. I attacked this situation aggressively at first but my skin became a murderous flaky mess so I backed off and treated the areas with a combo of apple cider vinegar + hygrogen peroxide and it's been working very nicely!So, the honey. I applied a generous layer mixed with cinnamon and left it on for about an hour. When I rinsed it off, the active zits were *a good deal* less inflamed, my skin was soothed, smooth, hydrated, plump, and the clogs reduced. A few more masks and the whole deal is almost dealt with. I noticed light fading of the scars but they obviously take forevs to truly vanish.Conclusion: honey totally works. If you want to splurge for the manuka, go for it, but a dark-colored raw variety works wonders too. Adding the cinnamon means more benefits for skin as well as a pretty great non-abrasive exfoliating treatment. It's sticky and weird and hard to spread on your face but not hard to wash off, in fact it's WAY easier to rinse off than say, a clay mask. (And if you get some in your mouth, it's delicious.)

I use this as a mask with equal parts honey and milk, and I add it to face wash sometimes to make it less drying, great ingredient! I want to try using it for other things too, but I haven't yet.

Honey has been used since egyptian times, its purely antibacterial and can be used as a mask, soap or shampoo. I've since given up on soap and have just used honey ever since. Using it as a mask mixed with egg white, will bring wonders. It can also be on your top list for first aid for cuts and such because of its antibacterial properties.Its precious so when you buy it, make sure its in a squeezable bottle that way you can control the liquid.

I use raw accacia honey for face wash every night. I massage my face with it and a little water, sometimes i leave it for about 20 minutes. It totaly draws my pimples put and purifies my skin. It was a total mess.If you have a messy skin be sure to try this. It's really great.U can use any sort of real raw honey! If U have a lot of acne, use darker sorts of honey like manuka or buckweat.Moisturize skin after if you think its necessery, and use it also in the morning if u think its neccesery.Ditch all of your soaps and milks.

I used honey as a face wash in the morning for 2 or so weeks, and it worked wonders! My tiny skin coloured bumps (clogged pores i believe) went away, and it somehow lightened a beauty mark on cheek (went from dark brown to light Brown) along with the tips of my lashes unfortunately :( i used to put it on my whole face and leave it for up to 20 minutes and then wash it off. I'm gonna try it again and this time with milk to see if it lightens my hyperpigmentation. Try it, srsly it works!!

Guys. Seriously. This is the best fricken thing you can ever put on your face. It's organic and is antibacterial and is soo good for your skin. I recommend buying the most organic one you can find. Personally what I do is buy expensive organic home grown honey and let it sit there for a few months, and then it turns into this sugary consistency, PERFECT for exfoliating. Even if you have perfect skin, honey is good for the skin and is very healthy to eat instead of sugar. If you're acne prone like me, add a teaspoon of cinnamon and you have a great exfoliator. You can't go wrong with honey!

I've used honey here and there as part of my skincare regimen but it's never been something I actually stuck with consistently. Yesterday, desperate to actually GET RID of the breakouts I've been having, I put pure raw honey on my spots before I went to bed. My pimples have been the ones where they get to that in between stage where they'll either heal or flare up again, and they kept flaring up again and wouldn't go away. I remembered that honey has great antibacterial properties so figured I'd give it a shot.I left it on overnight and slept on an older pillowcase that I wouldn't mind getting honey all over (even though it just washes right off in the laundry.) This morning when I woke up, the two horrible cystic spots that have been plaguing me for weeks were all dried up and are now well on the way to healing. I recommend that you not leave honey on your face overnight unless you've used it before and are sure you won't have some type of bad reaction. I'd also say that for best results, implementing honey in a homemade facial mask and using it a few times a week would be most helpful for preventative and cosmetic purposes (I want to start getting in the habit of doing this.)Using raw, pure honey on your skin can help with everything from moisturizing, to clearing up/reducing acne, to getting rid of/reducing post-acne marks/scarring. However, some people have reported having terrible reactions to honey, so if you're a first time user please be sure to test it sparingly before slathering it on your face.

One important rule with honey is to make sure its raw and pure, otherwise you're just applying sugar and other additives to your face that aren't of any benefit.honey is hands down one of the best things to use on your face, mixed with a few drops of tea tree oil it becomes one of the best homemade masks for healing the skin, drawing out impurities out of your skin, smoothes skin texture, and is very useful to almost all kinds of skin problems of all skin type, never have I complained of using honey on my skin,whether using it alone or with other ingredients (like yogurt) I have always achieved brilliant results with it, it's like magic to your face.

First let me say i am 26yrs old and suffered with acne since i hit puberty. I also have very sensitive acne prone skin. Touching or kissing my face would make me break out within the hr (i kid you not). I tend to get hormonal acne all along my cheeks and chin. It's red and inflamed all the time so i am very cautious with what i put on my face. Honey was my last ditch attempt at clearing up my skin and it works!!!! I wish i started doing it earlier. Now my skin has a glow, looks healthier, my acne scars are fading and i look less inflamed. Best of all, i'm not breaking out as much anymore. And any that do pop up tend to not stay as long or scar over. After using honey 2 days in a row on my face, even my bf noticed the difference and said my skin looks better and much softer than before. He can barely stop staring at how much it has helped me. Here's what i do: Wash my face with Cetaphil gentle cleanser in the morning and let it air dry. Then i take about 1 tablespoon of raw (locally produced) honey and rub it all over my face (i eat any extra on the spoon bc its delicious). I keep that on for about 1hr (i'd recommend 30mins min) while i go about brushing my teeth and eating breakfast etc. Then i wash it off with some warm water. I then use a toner (Simple soothing toner just on my nose bc i don't want it to get clogged). I apply my neutrogena spf 15 daily moisturizer and go about the rest of my routine. I'm currently doing this everyday to get the acne back under control but then i will scale back to 1-2 times a week for maintenance. You don't have to do it in the morning- you can do it at anytime. Just stick with it and you will see great results.
