Healing Honey for your Face, Body & Hair
Honey for your Face
Honey is an extremely popular ingredient in beauty care and for many, many great reasons! Used in everything from face masks, lip balms, shampoos, to body lotions, this is an ingredient we don’t even know where to start when it comes to breaking down its amazing properties. A natural antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial agent, honey can give you the best skin and hair of your life.
Honey has intense hydrating properties due to its naturally occurring sugars. These act as humectants and emollients that not only improve hydration in the skin but form a protective barrier to ensure hydration stays locked in long after it has been washed off. These properties help your skin stay soft and supple while giving the appearance of dewy and plump skin.
The healing properties of Honey
Honey is a great ingredient to fight off acne and breakouts and for spot treatment of stray pimples. It works by absorbing impurities from deep within the pores of the skin. This unclogs pores of excess oil, acne causing bacteria, and other toxins that can wreak havoc on your skin. Its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties also help dry up acne while its astringent properties help to shrink pore size.
A powerful antioxidant, honey helps nourish damaged skin and reverse signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. Its humectant properties intensely nourish and moisturize the top layers of the skin, plumping it and reducing the appearance of lines. Honey works to promote collagen building in skin cells which restores skin elasticity. It also reduces the appearance of scars by facilitating the healing process and initiating tissue regeneration. The use of honey can also have a bleaching effect on skin which helps reduce dark spots, age spots, and hyperpigmentation.
Honey for your Hair
When it comes to hair care, it is just as useful and versatile. It works wonderfully as a hair conditioner due to its humectant and emollient properties which deeply hydrate and lock in moisture resulting in softer and well-nourished hair. Its antioxidant properties reverse the damages causing by styling tools and environmental stressors preventing hair from becoming dry and brittle. It also improves scalp health by deeply cleansing the scalp and healing conditions like dandruff which results in overall stronger, healthier hair growth with reduced hair fall.
