Buzz-worthy Information Inside! Unlock the Secret Benefits of Honey for Your Skin

Honey is a sweet addition to anything it comes in contact with, from tea to biscuits and chicken. In the health industry, honey is known for its therapeutic properties, like treating stubborn coughs and aiding digestion. So, it is no surprise that we’re discussing honey's many benefits on the skin this month! Let’s discuss the endless benefits of honey and ways to incorporate this ancient treasure into your routine.


1. Natural Moisturizer: Honey is a humectant, which means it draws moisture from the air into the skin, keeping it hydrated and supple. This natural humectant property makes honey an excellent choice for individuals with dry skin.


2. Wound Healer: Honey has been used to heal wounds for centuries. When antibiotics became available, honey use decreased. But now, because of concerns about drug resistance, scientists are interested in honey again as an antibacterial agent. Honey has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe irritation, reduce redness, and speed up healing wounds, burns, and acne scars.


While you may be tempted to grab the honey from your pantry, there are over-the-counter products with medical-grade honey proven safe for treating wounds. Manuka honey is a medical-grade honey and one of the most studied honey varieties in the world.

It was also the first honey type to obtain the status of medical-grade honey. However, some alternatives use other types of honey, such as buckwheat, multi-floral, and Revamil source honey.


As always, consult a board-certified dermatologist for personalized recommendations tailored to your unique skin needs.


3. Gentle Exfoliation: There are enzymes in honey that can help gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and promoting a brighter complexion. It's suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.


Honey is not only versatile, but it’s a scientifically proven natural ingredient that can transform your skincare routine. Whether dealing with acne, dryness, or treating wounds, honey-based products may be the sweet solution you've been looking for.
