Thanks for this very useful hub! I personally battle with dry facial skin because I use benzoyl peroxide for my acne. I have to agree with you that honey does help moisturize the face. In addition to that it also fights bacteria - great! I would also suggest using oatmeal for removing dead skin cells on the face and even in the body. I'never found a commercial exfoliant that is better than the old, natural, cheap and effective oatmeal :)
