It’s crazy to think that bees have the power to make one of the most healing face masks out there!
Yes I’m talking about honey. But this isn’t just some ordinary honey, this is the incredible manuka honey!
When I first tried manuka honey I was so desperate! I remember I was heading to a business trip the next weekend and my skin was definitely not doing well.
I was also sick on the couch that week so I jumped on the idea of helping to heal my skin by wearing a nice sweet smelling mask, all while watching Netflix.￼
What I discovered, was that the hype was real.
Everything I heard about this amazing honey was true!
Each time I used it for my skin I noticed the swelling would go down.
Not only that, but my skin was left super glowy and smooth, and overall my acne healed a lot faster￼￼!
The Many Benefits of Manuka Honey for Skin-
•Has the power to balance your skins pH level
•Improves skin appearance and tone
•Is naturally an antibacterial, fighting acne causing bacteria
•Manuka honey helps to slough away dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling soft and glowy.
•Is an anti inflammatory, relieving painful pimples and helping to heal existing pimples.
• Is very hydrating
Because manuka honey has antibacterial properties, it helps to eliminate harmful bacteria in our pores, leading to less painful breakouts.
This is such a bonus since it’s always better to prevent acne, rather than deal with the aftermath.
Manuka honey from New Zealand is made up of:￼
•Vitamins and minerals
•Sugars (fructose and glucose)
•Hydrogen Peroxide and methylglyoxal
•Low pH (acidity)
I am blown away by how this has helped my skin already, and it’s only been a few weeks!
It is a little more pricey then normal honey, but thats because it contains a lot more health benefits, the flowers only bloom in New Zealand, and the Manuka flowers only bloom 2-6 weeks out of the year.
But let me tell you that it’s very much worth the purchase!
This is the honey that I personally use and love! The K Factor 16 is very powerful (16-20 being the most potent).
I’m excited to hear how this helps your skin!
