DIY Beauty: Audie’s Manuka Honey and Lemon Blemish Elixir
We are dying to try this genius, simple recipe from Audie. We’ve talked a lot about honey in these parts: It’s naturally antibacterial, and manuka honey in particular has been studied for its usefulness in treating and healing acne. Lemon, we’ve also learned, can work well to fade scars—which anyone with acne knows is 50% of the problem with problem-prone skin: Your skin finally clears up, and you’re stuck using concealer on your scar, which is annoying and may cause even more problems, depending on what you’re using. Here’s her recipe! Will you be trying it?
Current hometown: Boise
Product name that I made up: Manuka Honey & Lemon Elixir
Ingredients list: Manuka honey and pure lemon juice
How I made It: I measured 1/4 tsp. of honey and a little less than 1/4 tsp of lemon juice. A little goes a long way since I just apply it to my face.
How it smelled, felt, worked: After using this mixture a few times a week for the last 2 weeks…
I have noticed my acne spots are lighter and any existing acne heals a lot quicker. My congested skin is also clearing up!
Why I will or won’t do this again: I have already seen improvement in my skin and I know with continued use I am going to see greater results.
