Adding to its list of many uses, raw honey is INCREDIBLE for your skin, thanks to its super healing properties and hefty serving of skin-saving antioxidants. With its natural pH level of 4.5, raw honey falls within our skin’s naturally healthy pH range. Its antiseptic and antimicrobial properties make it effective for healing cuts and burns by killing bacteria and fungus.

It does wonders for a wide variety of skin ailments including: Rosacea, Eczema, Hyperpigmentation, Wrinkles, Acne and Enlarged Pores. Raw honey is super nourishing and hydrating as well.
