There were times during an intense Perioral Dermatitis breakout where I felt like my face could burst into flames. My skin was so raw and itchy the only relief I could get was applying a mask of raw organic honey. When my breakout was inflamed and itchy it made my mood more irritable and generally I felt really uncomfortable because of the itching. I would apply it to my face and lie with my head back hanging over the sofa and just enjoy some minutes of calm. Now just to note I'm all for the bees I'm currently transitioning to vegan but the only few minutes peace I could get was during this self care ritual.
Honey is nature’s medicine, its anti bacterial, anti aging, soothes irritation, regulates our skins PH and repair’s the skin. It is affordable and accessible and most importantly it stopped the damn itching! Honey is also natures cleanser, perfect for cleansing in the shower before you wash your hair. Your skin might feel a little dry at first but it will balance out over a week or two. I would recommend masking on a day you plan to wash your hair as it is very sticky. Raw, unfiltered honey contains the strongest medicinal properties. Have you ever tried it? while your here can you recommend a local organic bee keeper in the Limerick city area?
