Crunchy Betty Honey Challenge

Crunchy Betty's Honey Challenge
I’m taking the clean your face with raw honey challenge. The challenge is old and over but I thought I’d do it anyway.
I have been meaning to stop purchasing face cleansers, even the organic ones. Lately I’ve been washing my face with coconut oil (some say it clogs pores but that hasn’t been the case with me).
One day I was visiting Lauren’s blog (amazing little lady) and she mentioned that she uses honey in the morning as a face mask.
Well of course I had to try it and her blog led me to Crunchy Betty, her blog is full of homemade goodies for your face. In fact I purchased her E-book and look forward to experimenting later after my ‘honey’ challenge.
Food on Your Face
 
Here I am with my honey mask. I started a few days ago.
 
Honey Mask
You’ll want to use raw honey. I use mega raw, like in its solid form Winking smile.
 
I use about 1/2 tsp. rub it gently over my face. I then go make my coffee and about 10 minutes later I’m ready to exfoliate. I wet my fingertips and again, gently rub my face. The little sugar/honey granules acts like a face scrub. Once most of the honey granules are dissolved I rinse the rest off.
 
These two are good because they haven’t been heated so high and haven’t lost all their goodness.
Raw Honey
So far so good with using honey. I love it. The only problem is I want to lick my lips, a no-no for this low glycemic mama!
 
Speaking of licking honey I hope to add honey back into my diet. I’m going to experiment once I reach goal weight. Not sure how or what will happen but I miss honey.
 
Well that’s it for now.
I’m off to see if I have enough ingredients to bake a healthy, low-carb cake. First time ever for me to actually bake a cake. I’ve made lots of mug kind of cakes but nothing bigger than that.

  1. I've been using only honey for a few weeks also. It is nice. My skin looks brighter and less red. I also love the scent of it and think I can taste it although I don't get any in my mouth.

  2. Same here, Briana, I put it around my lips but I can still taste it some.

    Can't wait to see what my skin looks like after a few week. Since using coconut oil and now honey I have noticed a lot less blackheads.

    Thanks for stopping by =)
