Five Amazing Skincare Benefits of Honey

honey for skincare

Honey really is an unsung hero when it comes to skincare and has long been used as a beauty treatment. It was believed to have been part of Cleopatra’s daily beauty ritual!

Whether you apply honey directly to the skin as a mask or use it in one of our skincare products, it’s a skincare super-ingredient.

Moisturises & Hydrates

Honey is a natural humectant. That means it attracts and retains moisture. This can help keep the skin remain moist, soft and supple without being oily, as it helps retain moisture without adding more. And, because Honey can deeply penetrate the skin, it conditions and softens it from deep within, providing lasting hydration for dry skin types.

Antibacterial & Antiseptic

The natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties of honey can help reduce incidences of skin infections by targeting the bacteria that cause outbreaks, such as acne. Honey is also known to speed up the healing process of minor wounds, cuts, and burns by promoting the regeneration of tissue.

Anti-aging and Antioxidant 

Honey is rich in antioxidants, compounds which help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that attack cells and contribute to the aging process. Honey also offers defence against environmental stressors like pollution and UV radiation. In a moisturiser, serum or mask honey helps keep skin plump, firm and supple. 

Anti-Inflammatory

Honey has natural anti-inflammatory properties that can help to soothe and calm irritated skin, reduce redness and irritation. This makes it effective for skin conditions like eczema, rosacea and psoriasis.

Exfoliating & Pore Cleansing

Honey contains organic acids, such as gluconic acid, which gently exfoliates the top layers of dead skin cells, leading to a smoother complexion. The enzymes present in honey can cleanse the skin to keep the pores clear and clean.

A Good All Rounder

Even if you don’t have a specific skin concern to address, Honey is an amazing all-round multitasker, suitable for all skin types. It helps cleanse and protect the skin. With its natural ability to not only attract but also retain moisture, it’s extremely hydrating and soothing.

Using honey every day in a product like our Honey and Wild Flax moisturiser, you should see improved radiance and hydration.
