Manuka honey has several beautiful benefits for the skin:
Acne fighting: Due to its antibacterial properties, manuka honey is very effective at drawing out bacteria from clogged pores and clearing out breakouts. It’s also anti-inflammatory, so it reduces the redness and inflamed skin that often accompanies acne and breakouts. Use as a cleanser or mask to reap these benefits!
Promotes healing: The honey is known to repair damage at the cellular level and promote skin regeneration. It’s even used in the medical field to treat cuts and wounds due to its ability to speed up the healing process.
Anti-aging: Manuka honey has an abundance of antioxidants that work to fight off free radical damage. It’s also extremely moisturizing, so skin looks smooth and stays wrinkle-free.
