Today we are discussing the birds and the bees. Well, actually just the bees.

It's all about the honey. I did some research on the benefits of honey, and according to various sources on the internet honey can do amazing things for your skin.
My skin has been awful for most of this year, so I decided to try it because honestly, I had nothing to lose. For the first time in my life I had acne, REAL acne (not the occasional breakout that I used to refer to as acne before.) I didn't want to leave the house, and I CAKED my foundation on to try and conceal it, I felt like poo. For the first time I truly understand how acne affects you every day of your life.

Anyway, on to the good stuff. I started using honey every morning as a "face wash", because my skin has been quite dry lately. I noticed an improvement within the first week, but then I decided I wanted MORE *rubs hands together greedily* 

So, for the last few weeks I've been applying the honey to my face first thing in the morning and then just leaving it on while I go about my life. Now, by life I mean making breakfast, cleaning and doing laundry. If you are the Queen of England and you have to go to glamorous functions early in the morning, this won't work for you ;)
I leave it on for at least an hour most days, Sometimes on weekends I only leave it on for about 10 minutes and it still does a great job. Then I wash it off, I have been using a cream cleanser to take it off (it's extremely sticky, but it rinses off very easily) then I just tone and moisturize as usual.

I promise you, I don't even recognize my skin anymore! It's so soft, my pimples heal so much faster, I don't break out nearly as much as I used to, and my skin actually glows ( I always thought "the glow" everyone talks about only exists in fairy tales and Hollywood). I really hope you try this trick and that you have the same amazing results I have had so far. It's amazing for dry skin as it's very moisturizing, but I think any skin type will benefit from it!

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday, Honeys! (Honeys, see what I did there? teehee)
