You don't use it thick. I take a couple of drops, and mix it with water, maybe a couple of Tablespoons. Mix well, until the honey is like water, not sticky.
Pin back your hair, apply to your face, sit for a few minutes, wash off with clean, warm but not hot water, and pat dry. Voila!
Honey attracts moisture to you skin, softens, cleanses, etc.
Just once a week is good, but it's safe enough to use as often as you like.
I have found, experimenting, that a local wild honey works better than any single source, store bought honey. I don't have a clue why, but it seems to increase blood flow, and just make the skin look better overall.
And, it lasts forever. We got a very small jar from a local bee keeper years ago, and I still have about 1/2 left, so it's economical.
When I started using it, I looked for something to repurpose to mix it in, and found a very small, pretty, dish. Smaller than you'd use to feed a cat in, even. It takes little room, and is so pleasant to look at, that it makes it fun to use, but in the past I've used jar lids. Whatever you've got. You aren't making much.
Yes, water/hydrating skin is excellent. And, if you are going to apply lotion, cream or oil to your skin, doing it after bathing, or having the washcloth on your face, is the best time, when the skin is still slightly damp.
I make my own lotion/creams from beeswax...the type that's still yellow, and smells like honey a bit, and any other oil of choice...olive, grapeseed, etc. Other people might use almond, and such. I like to have control of the ingredients, and make it truly scent-free, so that I can scent it with essential oils of orange, or whatever I'm in the mood for, when I use it...since I don't use it all the time.
Boy, I love this subject! Can you tell? :-)
