Honey is great for the skin because it is a natural humectant which means it attracts moisture and it is naturally anti-bacterial so it has even been known to help prevent breakouts and even been used as a pimple treatment. The only thing to be careful with when you do use honey as a moisturizer is that as a humectant as much as it can draw moisture into the skin, it can also draw moisture out of the skin just depending on the difference between the humidity in the room and the moisture content in your skin. Surprisingly, there are honey products on the shelves in supermarket that do not actually contains a 100% natural honey and therefore do not have the same skin benefits. When you are buying honey for use on the skin get the best quality organic or 100% pure honey that you can buy.
