Follow Up-30 Day Honey Challenge
Hey folks! I hadn't intended on doing a follow up of the 30 Day Honey Challenge, but I will keep it short. I think I may have underestimated the honey in my final update. I'm starting to realize how big of a difference the type of honey and the color of it make. (It's said that the darker the honey, the more beneficial properties it has, like antioxidants.)
As soon as I stopped using honey on my face and went back to my previous facial cleanser (which was also mostly natural ingredients), my face broke out even worse than it was to begin with literally within a day or two. Namely, the nasty area along my jawline. I'll spare you pictures of my face this time, so you'll just have to take my word for it. ;)
So, since my husband wasn't really a fan of the Buckwheat Honey from MVTC AND it happens to be the darkest one we have, I decided to try it on my face. Let me just say, OH, EM, GEE! I am writing this on the 2nd and I've only used it 3 times so far (and not even every day) and it has helped IMMENSELY! The zits along my jawline have shrunken drastically and aren't half as nasty looking as there were just a week ago. Plus they're not getting all red and itchy now!
So, if you're looking to start using honey in your facial care regimen, do yourself a favor and make sure it is high quality, RAW honey, like that from the Mohawk Valley Trading Company. Otherwise, you're probably going to be disappointed with the results.
Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I have worked with MVTC in the recent past, but I just really like their honey and highly recommend it!
