The Enemy Strikes Again! Lemon Juice and Honey Facial to the Rescue!!

     Oh my! I am sooo sorry, it's been FOREVER!!! I'm just oh so stressed with classes, and finals are coming! Ahhhh!!! So as you might imagine, what often comes along with stress? That's right, acne...and since I already have trouble controlling my acne on a regular basis anyway, stress just doubles the trouble! Grrr... so, how do I help that? With my friends honey and lemon of course!

     A mixture of honey and lemon juice is magic to clearing skin up. Honey is a natural antiseptic (antibacterial), and acidic properties of lemon juice help exfoliate the skin, dry the acne, and also helps the fading of scars from previous zits and pimples. All you need is:

- 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1 Tablespoon of honey

You may substitute bottle lemon juice instead of squeezing your own from a lemon, just make sure you shake the bottle well before using it, and store it appropriately after opening.

Before you apply the mixture to your face, you may want to put some boiling water in a bowl and hover your face over the steam to help open up the pores in your face.

Mix the two ingredients together (this mixture will be runny), and spread all over the face. Let it sit for about 15-25 minutes, and then rinse your face with lukewarm water. Moisturize as normal.

Repeat this process about once a week, but not too often, or you will dry out the skin all over your face, and that's never a good thing. While this facial is for cleansing purposes, still too much of a good thing, is too much of a good thing.

See you soon!!
