Over the last few weeks I’ve been testing using salt (both sea salt and himalayan crystal salt) and honey as my facial cleanser.
Both have been great! I especially love honey because it’s moisturizing, soothing, very naturally anti-bacterial and extremely cheap (unless you use manuka honey of course).
Ps- What I forgot to add in this video is that honey has a pH of 3.2-4.5 which is relatively acidic. In my opinion this makes it even better to use as a cleanser because it is matching the natural acidic nature of our facial skin.
It’s also important to note that the skin of our face and neck is generally the most acidic of any skin on our body, because of this natural “acid mantle” or natural protective combination of oils, sebum and sweat (sounds a bit yucky but really it’s wonderfully protective and our skin does a great job at producing this perfect balance of protective stuff).
