Crunchy Betty Honey Challenge-It's Been Two Weeks (almost!)

   So as you may know, I took the 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!

I've used honey on zits to dry em out! It works all right.
