HonEy, I’m home…! hah, that was the first thing that came to my mind, so I thought I’d add that in 🙂 I was invited to this webinar that had Medicine Mama, Donna Steinmann, hosting an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of her apothecary.  There she creates a certified-organic, all-over miracle cream that combines the healing properties of pure honey bee ingredients to nourish, soothe and protect the skin. Thank you for the invite!

My experience with honey as an ingredient for my facial skin care was and still is absolutely wonderful. I first heard about honey masks from my aunt who when my brother was suffering from major acne/ blemishes all over his face and neck during his high school years, she had suggested him the honey and salt mask. At first, I was disgusted and a nonbeliever. Then, I heard it again a couple years back from a friend from Holland (The Netherlands) and she had suggested it to me when I, myself started to break out in adult acne from moving to Hong Kong then. Still, I was a nonbeliever though. Now, after more research and many more honey recommendations, I’ve finally given it a try about half a year ago and boy, I should have started this earlier. My first honey and yogurt mask was amazing, my skin was completely smooth and my blemishes have faded from the deep, cystic acne red, to a lighter pink and after a continual 3 day use, it was completely gone (not all of course but for a couple of days to have my cystic acne clear up? that’s some good working stuff there) The antibacterial factor within the honey is just remarkable as well as being nourishing and healing to our skin. Medicine Mama’s Apothecary harvests their own resin’s tree from the very special honey queen bee’s of course. Oh, and you can’t forget about the purifying propolis that they extract on their own as well! With products that help with chapped lips, shaving burns,cold sore relief, cut/ scrape,/bite reliefs and being a daily moisturizer or an overnight nourishment who needs anything else? Check it out!



Thank you, Amanda Comunale, of Crier PR for the invite!


P.S. – Almost forgot, there’s all sorts of honey out there that you could make your honey masks out from but the one I used was Manuka honey. (I’ve heard rave reviews about it before trying it for myself) If you’re suffering from acne, like me I use manuka honey, oatmeal(plain), yogurt(plain) and at times a tiny bit of lemon juice for my masks. Just mix them all together till you get a good mixture and then apply and leave on for 15-20 mins! hope it works for you guys 😉
