That so did not work for me

The “washing my face with honey” experiment is kaput. After two days of it my skin freaked. out. I think I might have had an allergic reaction, actually. Which is interesting and makes me wonder if I should even be EATING it.  I should know better by now. Claims made by people on the intertubes that are based on ancient myth (Cleopatra bathed in honey!) are not a reason to try something (duh). I, however, am a sucker for good narratives.

So that is that. In case you wanted to know.

  1. I’m sorry you had an adverse reaction! But I can’t help saying your narrative is very funny. We experiment, we discover, sometimes the results are great, sometimes, not so great! Keep up the great work, I love your blog.

  2. you may not want to give up just yet, depending on what your results were. If you’re referring to an acne breakout, that’s your skin purging the icky stuff it’s been holding onto, which the honey is helping to draw out. If that’s what it is, it should stop after a few days.

  3. Moni, it is probably something to do with all the bee hormones in the honey. My wife has taken to washing her pretty face with aloe juice but sometimes it is difficult to find…..#firstworldproblems
