Skin Care and Honey August 30 2014

Honey is a great beauty treatment!

Don't be too upset if your honey crystallizes - it makes a great face scrub!  To use as a scrub wet your face with a little water first or for dry skin a schmeer of Coconut Oil.  

Honey is also very moisturizing and helpful for acne due to it's anti bacterial treatment. When honey is in contact with the skin the salinity and lower pH of the skin activates an enzyme in honey which converts the glucose into gluconic acid and fresh hydrogen peroxide (borrowing a hydrogen atom from the moisture (H2O) in the skin).
