A few days ago, I was watching a youtube video from this vegan-raw-foodist lady and came across her video about using honey as a face cleanser. I thought this sounded intriguing and simple, so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad that I did! For the past 3 or so days, I've simply smeared some honey on my fingertips, rubbed them together to warm the honey a bit, and rubbed it all over my damp face. You might think honey is sticky and hard to wash off, but quite the contrary. And I'm left with soft (and sorta delicious smelling) skin. I've noticed a more even skin tone... so far so good. I love how simple it is... and how if I get a little on my lips while washing my face it's actually a nice little taste instead of a violent spitting effort to avoid nasty soap in my mouth.
Evidently, honey's really great for the skin-- antiseptic, antibacterial, and has healing properties. Also, I've seen mentioned it's important to use a good quality, raw, unheated/unpasteurized/unfiltered honey. If you're interested in trying honey as a cleanser, this is a good site to check out.
