Crunchy Betty Honey Challenge-It's Been Two Weeks (almost!)
Crunchy Betty Honey Challenge as of 7/18. We were instructed to wash our face with (raw) honey every day for two weeks and it has been a rather gooey, but enjoyable, journey. Perhaps I am guilty of overly inflated expectations, but my results did not end up quite as I had hoped. Previous to the honey cleansing I had been doing oil cleansing, which my face seemed to love. Granted, I do have temperamental skin, but I had not expected how drying the honey would be. I've used honey as a mask before, with good results, but just straight honey every day made my skin dry and spotty. Within the past few days I have switched over to adding a bit (1/4 teaspoon or so) of honey in with my cleansing oil mix and this has taken care of the dryness issue. I'll follow up after a bit (another week or two) to let you know if I have found my golden mean so to speak. I'm definitely a believer in the benefits of honey and I certainly welcome a way to incorporate it into my daily routine. Another way besides eating it that is!
