Hello my little buttons!
Honey is everywhere right now in skincare, little indie homemade brands are popping up left right and centre. These companies are so important right now to “support the bees” but what is so great about honey and why is it so good for your skin?
Honey is actually antibacterial! It’s great for helping spots disappear as well as keeping them away. I personally noticed this myself after a recent break out, my skin recoverd a lot faster than normal and my spots looked less angry.
Honey is clarify for the skin, by opening up and unclogging pores, which in turn helps keeps spots away leaving your face clean and fresh.
Honey is also highly moisturising, it sooths irritated skin and give your skin a glowy look to it. Since using a honey based serum and moisturiser I’ve not had any dry patches and my skin is looking healthy and bright.
The last main property in honey is it’s packed full of antioxidants which makes honey a natural wrinkle cream!! Antioxidants are great to prevent wrinkles as they promote cellular repair and healing.
Thankfully if you don’t like the idea of rubbing pure honey all over your face there are many creams and concoctions on the market right now to boost your skins honey intake without the sticky mess. Two companies I can highly recommend are hey honey and bee good I’ve been using several of their products and they’re wonderful.
If you did like the idea of using pure honey there are hundreds of home made facemasks you can make to keep your skin looking beautiful!
