from roro with love-- IV

Honey is a well known treatment for acne, and rightfully so. Its gentle, effective, natural and time-tested. It works so well because honey is a natural anti-bacterial substance. breakouts are essentially clogged pores that get irritated, then infected. So killing the infection within is a logical way to cure acne problems. this honey mask smells amazing and has helped me out on more than one occasion.

you will need:
honey (organic whenever possible)
q-tip
bowl
microwave

place a nickel size amount drop of honey in a microwave safe bowl and put it in for about 15 seconds. with a fresh q-tip apply to problem areas, wait 1--15 minuets and then rinse. if you have a particularly stubborn blemish, doing this once a day for no fewer than three days will seriously help diminish the size/redness/pain of your breakout.


enjoy, xox rosie
