Manuka Honey: Amazing Skin Benefits and Why You Should Use It

There are many skincare products on the market that turn out to be no good because they use ingredients of no value. But there’s one substance that always performs as ‘advertised’. I use the quotation marks because it’s not a manufactured product. It’s all-natural Manuka honey.The benefits of Manuka honey are numerous. If you need something for your skin – to fight infection, moisturize, soothe, balance, tone and firm – Manuka honey is truly amazing. Of course, it’s not always easy or practical for you to be able to get your hands on pure Manuka honey all the way from New Zealand, let alone slather it on your skin. Fortunately, you don’t have to miss out on its greatness. You can still pamper yourself with the best by using a face cream or moisturizer that contains this wonder honey.


Manuka Honey Profile

Pure honey of any kind has fantastic nutritional benefits when consumed and therapeutic benefits when applied topically. But Manuka honey tops the list with its levels of amino acids, B vitamins, sodium, magnesium, calcium, manganese, zinc, potassium, iron and copper. While these may be found in regular honeys, Manuka honey contains many at levels up to four times higher.

Clear Skin and Moisture Retention

Manuka honey works wonders in promoting clear, firm, supple skin. It soothes, removes dead skin cells, clears pores, and helps skin’s pH balance. This pH balance means the honey’s best nutrients are absorbed into the skin without leaving any greasiness. It will also remain balanced longer, thus keeping skin hydration at a better level.

Combats Infections

Everything from acne to eczema and psoriasis can benefit from Manuka honey, or from gentle products that contain it. It has potent natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, so it’s very soothing for cuts, burns and bites, and it will work to fight off infections that can result from these. Regular use can even help lessen scarring.

Anti-Aging Formulation

Maybe anti-aging should be at the top of the list of benefits of Manuka honey. Applied raw or in a cream, it goes deeper than moisturizing… literally. The properties found in Manuka honey are such that they penetrate deep into the skin where they can promote collagen growth while inhibiting MMP (matrix metalloproteinases), enzymes that can degrade and destroy collagen,. Meanwhile, its amino acids help skin cells regenerate to be healthier.

Burns and Ulcers

Maybe you wouldn’t think about putting honey on burns or skin ulcers, but hospitals do. Many burn wards use Manuka honey because it’s so effective at healing and reducing inflammation and scarring.

The Power of Partnership

Manuka honey’s benefits get enhanced when it’s added to skin and hair care products that also contain other natural wonders like aloe vera, shea butter, coconut oil, hemp seed oil and blue-green algae. The whole array can work together as a potent force to bring out the very best in your skin and in you.
