Hormonal acne, pesky blackheads, and dark under eye circles have been the extent of how to get rid of acne scars on cheeks my problems. That is, until this year — as chicago’s brutal winter arrived, so did the worst skin woes I’ve EVER experienced (not to be dramatic…). It started when I woke up with severely itchy skin, which I innocently blamed on the changing weather. It then became red bumps all over my face, and a puffiness that was definitely not normal.

I knew it must be an allergic reaction, and, after talking to my dermatologist, got a prescription to keep the inflammation down. It momentarily helped, but the bumps, itchiness, and puffiness still came back every week or so. The worst part was I could not figure out what how to get rid of acne scars on cheeks was causing it — I changed pillowcases, stuck to oils instead of retinoids in my nighttime skincare, and used sensitive wash instead of standard. And still, despite all my efforts and tears, it kept coming back like a disney channel theme song how to get rid of acne scars on cheeks that gets stuck in your head. This was my everest.

Even the supersensitive replacement I’d been using didn’t count as “natural.” so what could I replace it with? Enter: honey. I’d actually heard a lot of buzz (pun intended) about the stuff made by bees and its benefits for how to get rid of acne scars on cheeks the skin.

The only change up was when I wore makeup — the honey wasn’t enough to take off all mascara and eyebrow gel how to get rid of acne scars on cheeks galore, so I opted for a natural cleansing oil as the how to get rid of acne scars on cheeks first step, followed by the honey. Two weeks and a jar of honey later — my skin has NEVER. BEEN. BETTER. I repeat — I HAVE ALMOST ACHIEVED SKINCARE NIRVANA.

Let me break it down: the honey did not clog my pores or cause acne how to get rid of acne scars on cheeks as I had worried. I’ve actually remained fairly clear-skinned with a few smaller zits popping up here and how to get rid of acne scars on cheeks there, but not as many as I normally would during a how to get rid of acne scars on cheeks period week, especially, which was a #miracle. But the biggest shock of all… after washing with honey, the pesky, horrible, seemingly permanent blackheads I’ve struggled with on my nose FOR. FREAKING. EVER. Popped out so easily, just like that! (not to be graphic)

Overall, my skin just looks more even-toned, glows, and has actually survived winter, dryness-free. *knock on wood* but my red bumpiness and itchy skin has not come how to get rid of acne scars on cheeks back since I started washing with honey.
