DON'T use honey if you are allergic to bees or pollen!

I have mention the use of honey for acne in a early post! If you haven't read it click here ~~> Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Acne  Well now I'm going to elaborate a more on how to do it, which type of products to use, and the effects it has on your skin.

How To Use Honey To Get Rid Of Acne
Honey alone will only help treat your current breakout by soothing and healing it. You have to use an organic apple cider vinegar rinse with it! See which vrand to use below.
Wash your hands and clean your face. Nuke the honey in the microwave for a few seconds and using your hands massage it in a  circular  motion over your face for 30 seconds to a minute and then smooth over your entire face! Leave as long as you choose but no less than 15 minutes!
Mix a solution of vinegar and water at a ratio of 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, etc! What ration of vinegar to water you choose depends on your skin! If you have very sensitive skin you should  want to start with 1 parts vinegar to 8 parts water and if theres no irratation you can slowly work your way up! If you have normal I recommend you start with 1 part vinegar to 6 parts water! It's up to you. Just be sure to test an area behind the ear first!
Rinse off the honey with the soloution and leave the vinegar mix on your skin don't rinse it with water or dry your face! Leave it on for 15 minutes to 1 hour and rinse with water. Pat face dry and apply a moisturizer. Do this once a day for at least a week. Then in addition to the honey mask and vinegar rinse you can increase to twice a day. After a month you can apply the vinegar alone upto 2 times a day if you have oily or nornal skin. No more then once a day for dry skin. Just make sure you rinse off before going in the sunlight. You should see noticable results after 2 weeks!

Which Products To Use
As far as honey goes you can use any brand of raw honey. Dr. Mercolas is the best. You can also use Manuka honey which is said to be the best. I believe Dr. Mercola sells Manuka honey as well! The type really matters in this case. Your regular grocery store honey isn't going to work! Most are just honey flavored!
As far as  apple cider vinegar any organic brand unfiltered brand will work but I
HIGHLY recommend using Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar!  It is a little more expensive but worth it! The cheapest place I've found is The Vitamin Shopp The 16 oz is currently on sale for $2.67.

1. If your skin is sensitive use more water like 8 parts water to 1 part vinegar. Slowly decrease the water amount until you find a balance your skin loves!
2. Stay out of the sunlight with vinegar on your skin! It sill make dark marks and scars darker.
3. Don't use honey if you are allergic to bees or pollen!!!
4 Always spot test your skin and wait 24 hours before trying anything new to see how your skin will take it! Behind the ear is good place!
5.Your acne may get worse before it gets better as the vinegar pulls the toxins from your skin! This is normal it won't last long. Try some of my remedies in the other post mentioned above! The lenon juice or tomatoe remedy may help!
