How honey treats acne:

Honey is an antiseptic: An antiseptic prevents the growth of disease causing organisms, AKA the bacteria in your pore.

Honey releases low levels of hydrogen peroxide that disinfects your skin. Additionally, It’s high sugar concentration and acidic properties impair bacteria’s ability to replicate.

Applying an antiseptic to a fully developed pimple or a whitehead can stop the infection in your pore from getting worse.

Honey also has anti-inflammatory qualities that help prevent the swelling and redness that can come from acne. Finally, for those with dry skin, honey is a natural humectant, which preserves moisture in your skin and can prevent some peeling and dryness that other acne treatments can cause.

The bad news about honey and acne:

Bacteria is only part of the equation of acne breakouts. A pimple occurs because your pore is clogged. Many times the bacteria builds up because your pore doesn’t drain your naturally produced oil.
