Use Of Honey And Olive Oil To Treat Acne On The Face?
, my face has pimples and there are some acne scars that haven’t disappeared. I have tried several facial wash and skincare products but they haven’t disappeared. The climax was when I used papaya soap and some pimples appeared on my forehead and I immediately stopped it. It’s been 2 weeks but it hasn’t gone away. After I found out that acne prone face should avoid fragrances, parabens, alcohol. Finally, I decided to fast for skincare and facial wash. I also replaced my treatment with honey and olive oil.
Hi LadiesSenja .. Thank you for the question.
One person's skin type is different from others. There are dry, moist, and sensitive skin types, so the use of cosmetic products must also be adjusted to your facial skin type. Acne is common from puberty to 30s. The appearance of acne can be caused by hormonal factors, increased work of oil glands, closed facial pores mixed with bacteria can trigger acne.
The use of honey and olive oil is good for the skin. Olive oil contains fat, vitamins E and K, and a small amount of iron. Olive oil can be used to treat dry skin and increase skin moisture. Besides that, it can also be used as a facial cleanser. Although olive oil generally does not cause allergies, it should not be used on areas of the face with acne. Meanwhile, dates have an antimicrobial and antioxidant effect so they can ward off free radicals. If used on acne skin, then you can rinse your face first to open the skin pores then apply honey on your face and leave it on for 30 minutes then wash with warm water followed by washing with cold water.
You can use honey and olive oil on your skin but the olive oil should not be applied to the acne prone areas. If your skin is still acne prone, you can see a dermatologist to get a direct examination. And do: keep facial skin clean, avoid long-term use of cosmetics, if the use of certain products appears reddish rashes or pimples then stop using them.
