Honey, the new skincare superfood

You may have seen honey based facial products buzzing around the shelves lately and it’s because of their amazing skincare benefits.

Did you know Manuka honey has been scientifically proven as an effective anti-acne ingredient and who doesn’t want clear skin! Honey also speeds up your skin cell healing process and helps reduce acne scaring. But honey isn’t only for oily or acne prone skin, it is also great for people with autoimmune skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.

Raw honey can also be used as a gentle exfoliant to remove dead skin cells that can cause your skin to look flaky, dry and promote skin cell rejuvenation.

Here are some of our favourite honey products out at the moment
