Honey is naturally antibacterial, and good for acne treatment and prevention. Honey is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the air into the skin. Honey is loaded with antioxidants, enzymes, and other nutrients that nourish, cleanse, and hydrate your skin. The enzymes in raw honey clarify the skin and keep pores clear and clean. Honey also contains antifungal properties that prevent bacteria that can lead to breakouts. Its anti-inflammatory properties help to calm redness and irritation. It is perfect for minor burns or cuts and nicks in the kitchen. Even going back as far as the days of Cleopatra of Egypt, it has been written that she regularly took honey and milk baths to maintain her youthful appearance.
