Well I Bee, I’ve heard talks about honey, and that it has great antibacterial factors, therefore the past two weeks, I’ve been adding into my beauty regiment. And let me tell you, I love it so much that it now has a permanent spot in my bathroom with my facial products.
What does it work great on?
Blemishes, and boy does it work. Unfortunately, when I get under a lot stress, which sometimes my daytime job causes, I will get a break out in the same place on my face. It is one of these unsightly ones that just appears with no warning. For the past year, I’ve been using eye drops on this irritated area, which has been my secret weapon to banishing the zits! But honey, let me tell you, you are my new sweet love.
I tried a variety of beauty recipes with honey, and will share some of the best today.
BB Bit 1:
A fantastic recipe combining both eye drops and honey, and it’s just an appliqué.
Eye Drops: I apply the eye drops to the blemish first, by adding a few drops to a cotton ball and gently covering the blemish. Why does this help? Because the eye drops contain vasoconstrictors, which will shrink the blood vessels, hence reducing the inflammation & redness! I then will take a Q-tip and add a drop of honey on it, I apply it right on top of the irritated area and leave it over night. When I wake up the next morning, the inflammation is down and there have been times where the zit has completely vanished.
BB Bit 2:
A sweet & sour mask. This mask is a combination of lemon & honey. The mixture works wonders as the citric acid in the lemon helps to shrink the pores, exfoliate, and maintains your PH levels, whereas the honey's antibacterial factors banish the zit.
How To Make This:
- Get 1 lemon and squeeze it into a bowl.
- Add about 2 tablespoon of honey and mix.
- You’re almost ready to apply, but before you do, you want to make sure you have your hair pulled back. Otherwise it will get stuck in the honey on your face.
- Apply the concoction to your clean face in a circular motion for a few minutes.
- Leave mask on your face for about 15 more minutes.
- Wash off.
Bzzz, I Have One More…

I got this bit from my friend Teresa, who you’ve heard me make mention before. It is not for blemishes but rather used on a cut. The honey has great soothing effects, combined with its antibacterial factors; it shields as a protective layer over the cut.
Simply apply the honey over the minor wound and cover with a bandage.
