Moreover, mixing it with jojoba oil increases its efficiency in preventing bacterial backlog & balancing the skin pH & acne breakouts. Take two teaspoons of jojoba oil & one teaspoon of raw honey. Mix both in a bowl & once it becomes a fine consistency, apply all over your face, except the eyes. Let it air dry & then wash off with lukewarm water.
2. Honey & Apple Cider Vinegar
Raw honey when applied on the skin, nourishes it from deep down, enriches it with moisture & infuses nutrients in it. When used together with apple cider vinegar, it even brings the skin pH back to normal & makes the skin thousand times softer. Take one teaspoon each of honey & apple cider vinegar in a bowl. Mix well & apply on slightly damp face. Let it sit for a minimum of 5 minutes, followed with rinsing off with lukewarm water afterward.
