During night-time applications, you should apply organic raw honey on acne infected areas and cover it with a Band-Aid. When you wake up, remove the Band-Aid and wash your face with water. Band-Aids work really well for keeping the honey on pimples.
Honey with Apple – May be Messy, But Works Great
Mix raw organic honey with blended or mashed apples and apply it on the acne breakouts. Make sure it’s thick (less mess). After some time goes by, wash the honey with apple off with cold water (cold water closes the pores of the skin). Apple contains malic acid (alpha hydroxy acid), along with other vitamins and minerals. The malic acid removes dead skin cells and dirt from the skin’s surface, resulting in clean, shiny skin.
A Couple Quick Tips Before Putting Honey on Pimples
First, make sure to rinse all the acne infected areas with HOT water before using honey for acne. Hot water will open the pores and let the good stuff in for healing.
Second, there is a special type of honey for acne. The best type of honey for acne for acne is Manuka Honey. Check out our pages for more info on Manuka Honey, it’s superior in every way. The Manuka Honey used for acne treatment must have a UMF label of at least +15. This is important because anything less will not have the anti-bacterial properties needed for the acne treatment.
Also stay away from honey labels that say “Pure Honey”. Wе knоw; іt’ѕ thе title of оur blog here at American Honey Producers, and a word we use often, but the reality is that when the label says “Pure Honey”, it has generally been processed, thus destroying all those healing properties needed for applying honey on pimples.
