Interesting...

So I know last week we talked a little bit about my lack of good skin care since I wasn't consistant in taking it off at night. I have been sort of looking around for acne prone & sentsitive skin care routines. I am allergic to just about everything under the sun and I have super sensitive, dry, acne prone, and eczema prone skin :( I find it very hard to find skin care solutions that actually produce long term results without irritating my skin at a decent price. After doing some digging, I ran into an overwhelmingly large trend for the organic hygiene goers for face wash to use organic (drum roll please) honey. Weird, right? That is what I though initially...until I tried it. It is very interesting. You want to make sure you get organic, from a farmers market or a whole foods type store. It will look cloudy and have a grainy texture. So, this has been my skin care routine for the past 5 days. 1st I am using what I have left of my Clinque clarifying lotion. I think it is funny it is called lotion because it is more of a toner (first toner that WON'T dry my face out) to remove make up. Then, splash my face with warm water. I then gob a good quarter size of honey on my face and rub it in circular motion around my face like a normal face wash. (CAUTION make sure to keep it clear of your hairline...that could get pretty sticky and messy). Then I just splash with warm water and moisturize with an eczema prescribed moisturizer. Since I have dry skin, I have noticed my face has retained my moisture and is more smooth to the touch. It has also reduced some of the irritation my skin was displaying (bumps & redness).

    1. Right??? Mine is always dry especially because of eczema, and when the dry bitter cold weather comes around...it gets very tight. So far I love it! It makes my face feel so soft and makes it feel moisturized.
