Single-Origin Honey Face Treatment

Honey is a venerable and nutritive ingredient valued for its nourishing and beautifying properties for all skin types. It cleanses and tightens pores and hydrates skin. The active enzymes in raw honey slough off dead skin and renew skin’s surface, which may feel a bit tingly. After applying to your skin, try fanning you face: it will feel deliciously warm.

Skin Type: All Skin Types


1-1/2 tablespoons raw honey (ideally single-origin from a local or regional source)


Cleanse your face, then steam your pores open over a pot of hot water for 2 to 5 minute or by drenching a washcloth with steaming hot water, wringing it out, letting it cool until it’s comfortable to the touch, and draping it over your face for 2 minutes.

Spread honey evenly over your face with your fingertips. Make sure to avoid your eyes, but don’t be shy around your lips so you can sample the sweetness. Leave it on your skin for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash the honey off with warm water, followed by a cool water rinse. Apply toner or face spray and moisturizer.
