  • For teenage acne, my mother used to spread about a 1/2 tablespoon of honey onto my face. I’d lay on her lap and she would just pat at my skin for about 15 minutes. The stickiness of the honey pulled out impurities from the pores. We did this twice a week and my acne improved. This home cure worked better than all that stuff the doctors prescribed.
