Natural Facial Scrub Using Honey

Honey is a Natural Healer

Honey has been used for centuries in cultures all over the world as a natural skin healing agent. Honey contains an enzyme called glucose oxidase, that when combined with water, produces hydrogen peroxide, a mild antiseptic. In addition to the glucose oxidase enzyme, honey also contains antioxidants and *flavonoids that may function as antibacterial agents. Honey also has the ability to moisturize the skin with out making it oily.

With these properties, honey is a great natural skin cleanser and moisturizer.
