I have a very sensitive skin and Dan Kern's products are the only products in the market claiming to cure acne that really did its job. After 5 months of using DK's products, I started adding new products on my skin care routine and finding alternatives for some. I am currently using baby products, as they are very mild for the skin, and natural products. I incorporated honey 7 days ago in my routine and within a week of using it - my bumps, redness left by healed acne, rough texture, and ugly-looking "milia" were gone. I put honey on my face for 20 minutes then wash it off. Here is my current skin care routine: 1) Make Up Remover - Johnson's Baby Oil, 2) Cleanser - Johnson's Baby Top To Toe, 3) Scrub - Sugar + Lemon (every other night), 4) Mask - Honey, 5) Toner - Apple Cider Vinegar by Braggs, 6) Treatment - DK's Benzoyl Peroxide, 7) Moisturizer - Aloe Vera Gel by Nature Republic (summer) and Cetaphil (rainy/cold days). I will use serums and oils from The Ordinary soon. I'm still enjoying the honey stage. You will never go wrong with light and natural products, trust me.
Honey is incredibly comedogenic (makes you break out to high heaven).
Years ago I thought I had found the holy grail.. but I cannot express enough how bad this clogs your pores. I have had many estheticians, naturopath doctors, and chiropractors tell me the same (to my dismay at the time).
Please don't stick this stuff on your skin. :C
For me, this works great to prevent breakouts. Every day, and if I can 2 times a day I wet my face with warm water and put some regular honey on my face and let it rest for 30 minutes, after that I rinse it off with cold water. Haven't had a breakout since. It also reduces humps after ~3 days for me.
I mix honey with some olive oil and use it as a mask.
This works wonders for me, especially on the days where my skin is super oily yet also dehydrated and has flaky patches. Honey has many good properties: it is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, etc.
I only use organic honey, which can be found at Trader Joes.
After this mask has set on my face for about 15 minutes, I wash it off, and my skin is much brighter and smoother. :)
Hi, I've been looking recently into raw honey acne treatments and decided to buy a bottle of Nature Nate's Raw Honey (the American bees one), and was going to use it with tea tree oil from artnaturals.
Is there anything I should know before I do this, and has anyone had any success with this kind of treatment?
I don't suffer from severe breakouts - my acne is pretty consistent. I don't wear makeup and I've only ever tried Proactiv before but it made my face worse after I stopped using it. My face is kind of dry except for the "T-section" of my forehead and nose where it's a lot more oily. I mostly just have whiteheads and blackheads everywhere from my forehead to underneath my chin.
Hey! I have never posted anything on here, but I've finally found a remedy that works for me! I have been struggling with moderate acne for 4 years now. I have tried multiple antibiotics, and creams and nothing really had an impact on my skin. I have been using a retinoid cream for a year and a half now, and it has become less and less effective. So I decided to give the honey mask another shot. I tried it years ago and didn't notice a difference in my skin. But this time around, I bought the most expensive local raw honey I could find. Seriously, do not settle for cheap, processed honey, it will not have the full effect!
I have been doing it for three days now, twice a day, leaving it on for 20 minutes in the morning and 30 min- 1 hour at night. After the first mask I noticed that my skin looked and felt healthier, my skin was neither dry nor oily, and for me and my combination skin that's a big deal. I have noticed fewer breakouts, and also putting raw honey on a zit after popping it seems to reduce the damage to the skin, as well as reducing inflammation. I cannot say that this mask will clear up your skin, but it seems to improve the skins overall texture and appearance, without making acne worse. I would recommend trying it for no more than 15-30 minutes and see how your skin reacts to it. Everyones skin is different so you may have better or worse results with this remedy, just be careful and be gentle on your skin. I hope this works for you!
In case you're interested, the honey i've been using is made by YS Organic Bee Farms, 100% certified Organic Raw honey.
I am not sure wether this worked for me. My acne didn't get better or worse. It's just a mess applying and cleaning and I used it primarily because I have very dry, flaky skin and it is antibacterial so a good acne moisturizer. Unfortunately, raw honey and normal honey both failed in moisturizing my skin or eliminating my acne.
I tried using this mask treatment for my face since I've been betting a lot of bumps on my forehead and pimples here and there. Once i left the honey, cinnamon mixture for 15 minutes I rinsed my face and applied a toner. My face felt extremely hot and it turned tomato red and it still feels very warm and red, as If i got a sunburn. Is this suppose to happen? Please help!!!
I have extremely dry, sensitive skin and adult acne. Honey helps a very specific kind of acne for me. I get this large group of small pimples on my face by my ears that peroxide and other acne treatments have no effect on. Honey is the only thing that has helped them. However, honey hasn't had any effect on the large pimples I get on my forehead. It's like the pimples on by my ears are a different strain of bacteria that the honey specifically helps or something. I put raw honey (regular, not Manuka) on like a mask and leave it on for at least 30 minutes, but the longer the better.
Make sure you're using pure raw honey, the one that looks thick, and mix it with lemon for better results. I apply it on my face 2-3 times a week for about 15-30 minutes, then I wash it off. Also make sure that you're using a good moisturizer afterwards because this mask might dry out your skin and also use a natural face wash. I use organic virgin coconut oil as a moisturizer, oh and it doesn't clog my pores. However, it helps cure with acne. As for face wash, I use Herbalism from Lush. It is a bit pricey but it works wonders.
