A humectant moisturizer from the nectar of flowers. If you’re interested in DIY honey masks and spot treatments for dry, dehydrated and acneic skin you should know that the average pH of honey is about 3.9, with a typical range of 3.4 to 6.1. Avoid if you’re allergic to honey or bees, and make sure to buy real honey not the kind in the plastic bear container which is just corn syrup with a little honey mixed in. Manuka honey is a great option.

Please note: if you’re allergic to royal jelly, propolis, bee stings, etc., you may have an allergic reaction to honey.
