I’m a big advocate for all-natural products. I think Mother Nature is really good at what she does, and secondly, honey is a health and beauty remedy that has been used for centuries. It’s been said that Cleopatra used honey as a skin treatment. Honey is not only loaded with essential vitamins and minerals that can benefit your body when taken internally, but it will increase the health of your skin when applied topically. The pH level of honey is very close to your own skin’s natural pH level, so it won’t create an imbalance in your skin’s natural acidity levels. Many of the skin cleansers on the market contain a lot of chemicals which not only disrupt your skin’s natural Ph levels, but are absorbed into your body. So, what are the benefits of using honey as a cleanser or face mask?
