Honey Recommended as Facial Mask

Sweet Like Sugar
The Examiner (USA), 5/27/2008

...Raw honey does amazing things for humans' bodies, inside and out. It carries a wealth of enzymes, minerals and vitamins. It lightens skin discoloration as well as exfoliating, and raw, unpasteurized honey's antibacterial properties make it an effective wound dressing.

Manuka honey, indigenous only to certain parts of New Zealand and Australia, is the product of bees that pollinate the Manuka, or Tea Tree bush.

Tea Tree oil has long been used as an antibacterial agent, and honey that is produced by bees who nosh on Manuka blossoms in a pure, unpolluted environment is positively turbo-powered. To wit: a ratings system devised solely for Manuka honey, called the UMF (Unique Manuka Factor-I am not making that up)…

Well, whatever it is and however it works, I'm in Honey Love. I have seen actual evidence in Manuka honey's astonishing antibacterial power since beginning to use pure Manuka honey as a facial mask…
