Honey for the face.

I read this in a book years ago.  I’ve since lost the book and have been trying so hard to find it.  There was a page with the best 10 things to do for yourself and applying honey to the face for 20 minutes a few times a week was one of them (I think drinking lemon water upon rising too was in there).  I tried it and really loved the results!  Honey is a natural antiseptic and moisturizer.  Whenever I am honey-faced with my Dad, he always reminds me that, “honey was always in a medics bag during the world wars to use on the flesh wounds of soldiers…”.

So, my ritual, a few times a week:  stumble out of bed, splash water on my face, brush my teeth, put my contacts in and slather on a layer of sticky honey.  After around 20 minutes or so, I hardly rinse anything off.  It is amazing how much the skin absorbs!  I really swear by this routine.  Maybe it is mind-over-matter but I think I see clearer, softer skin.
