The honey also removes dryness, patches or peeling.

Mix 1 tsp honey and oil and same part beeswax. Wamr it up in the microwave and stir. Let it melt and cool. Use as lotion on needed areas few times daily. Do not pick or scratch that area!
Honey also removes germs and soothes wounds. It extracts the excess fluids and speeds up the healing time. It prevents microorganisms to infect the area more. In In a study of 2013, Cochrane Database Systematic Reviews claimed that honey treats wounds but minor ones, not ones like post-surgery or ulcer. For minor issues, use the Manuka. Make a thick layer directly to the cut wound and place a bandage. Remove it after some hours and wipe with a cloth.
The acne is formed due to too much skin oil inside the pores and dirt trapped inside. The honey wipes the bacteria and acts like antibiotic that removes inflammation too. Use it raw on the acne and surrounding skin. After 30 min rinse this and repeat it the same day. Mix 1 tbsp honey and ½ tspcinnamon, leave it for 15 min on the acne skin and rinse.
