Honey-Infused Skincare

One of Mother Nature’s most wonderful natural remedies is honey. You’ve probably drizzled it over your pancakes, sweetened your cup of tea or slathered it all over your toast but did you know that honey is also great for smoothing, softening and even clearing skin? It’s ideal for all skin types’ especially dry and sensitive skin. With boundless benefits and healing properties, we have to salute the bees for this multi- purpose skincare wonder.

 WHY IS HONEY SO GOOD FOR THE SKIN? 

Honey is naturally made by bees collecting nectar from the heart of flowers and storing it in honeycombs to create the sweet, thick liquid we know and love. That liquid is a powerhouse of essential nutrients with healing properties like vitamin B, calcium, zinc, potassium and iron that can help repair and soothe both oily and dry skin.

 A BUZZWORTHY SKINCARE INGREDIENT 

Honey is a natural humectant meaning it draws moisture into the skin. If your skin is in need of a hydration boost, especially during the winter season, this is the perfect ingredient to look out for in your skincare products. It's rich in antioxidants, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and has anti-ageing benefits. It is great for many skin conditions that require moisturising like eczema, atopic dermatitis and acne or barrier protection like treating sores and scars.

Look out for skincare products that contain honey flower extract - great for dry and dehydrated skin and manuka honey- which can help add extra moisture to the skin. Royal jelly is also a creamy, protein-rich secretion derived from the glands of honeybees, which boosts collagen production in the skin. You'll find all this honey goodness  in skincare products from face masks, cleansers, lotions, lip balms and more.

 SKIN TRANSFORMING BENEFITS 

DEEPLY HYDRATES: Honey naturally draws moisture into the skin helping to keep it supple and hydrated. The enzymes present in honey enable it to easily seep into the skin while conditioning and softening it from deep within.

PORE CLEANSING: Honey can be used to cleanse pores and remove impurites. Since honey contains antioxidants and antibacterial properties, it helps to rid your skin of blackheads by removing dirt from pores. It then hydrates and tightens pores for a clearer complexion.

FIGHTS ACNE & PIMPLES: The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties in honey fight acne-causing bacteria by  removing excess oil from the surface of the skin and clearing out clogged pores, helping to keep your skin clear and pimple-free.

ANTI- INFLAMMATORY: If you’re prone to itchiness and dryness, honey can have a soothing effect on your skin. When you’ve had a bad reaction to a new product or harsh skincare ingredient, honey can soothe the sensitivity and reduce redness and irritation.

ANTI- AGEING: Packed full of probiotics and antioxidants, honey combats free radical damage to delay skin ageing. Additionally, honey plumps up your skin while also working on repairing the damaged skin barrier. This helps to firm the skin and reduce any wrinkles.

GENTLY EXFOLIATES: If you’re experiencing dull, patchy skin, honey contains enzymes that work to gently remove dead skin cells while revealing a glowing complexion.

HEALS WOUNDS & FADES SCARS: Honey is a natural antiseptic that provides infection and wound protection.  It minimizes any inflammation and helps heal the skin faster. The anti-oxidants present in honey also help to repair damaged skin. It's also used to treat burns and fade scars.
