Can honey benefit our skin? It seems like this ancient ingredient has been used for millennia as a beauty product to care and nourish the skin on our bodies.
Honey has powerful benefits for our skin. For instance, raw honey can help unclog pores while simultaneously delivering moisture to parched skin.
If you’re suffering from a breakout, reach for a swab of honey instead of an overly drying over-the-counter pimple cream. Applied ever so lightly, you can sleep with a dab of honey on your face and awaken to less-stressed skin.
It can also be used in baths. Once you start dealing with dry winter skin, turn to honey to soothe. As the seasons change, your skin can go into overdrive trying to rebalance itself to the conditions. Warm baths with soothing ingredients like honey can keep your skin in check,]
According to She Knows:
- Acne: Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention.
- Aging: Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down ageing.
- Complexion boost: It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow.
- Pores: Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.
