Honey – The Skincare Hero! 

Honey really is an unsung hero when it comes to skin care. Honey has long been used as a beauty treatment and 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.

Firstly, honey has antibacterial properties, making it ideal for acne treatment and prevention. It boosts skin cells healing processes and reduces inflammation. In some countries doctors even use raw honey on wounds in clinical settings to help heal them up with infection.  

Honey is also full of antioxidants, ideal for combating damage to the skin. Anti-oxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation and help to protect against free radical damage. they are therefore extremely beneficial in helping minimise signs of ageing on the skin.

Honey – in a moisturiser, serum or mask will help to neutralise free radicals and keep skin plump, firm and supple. The action is similar to stopping an apple from going brown when you cut into it.  

Even if you don’t have specific skin concerns to address, Honey is an amazing all-round multitasker, suitable for all skin types and assists with cleansing, and protecting the skin.  With its natural ability to not only attract but also retain moisture, it’s extremely hydrating and soothing - use it every day in a product like our Honey and Wild Flax moisturiser and you should see improved radiance and hydration.
