The Benefits of Manuka Honey

What is your concern?

Congested skin?

Dehydrated, tired-looking skin?

Fine lines?

Even if it’s all of the above, Manuka honey will help!

Manuka honey has superb antibacterial and antifungal properties, which make it an amazing, natural product to help any skin condition. This is a product that isn’t the next fad – it has been used for thousands of years by native New Zealanders.

Manuka honey can improve your skin's appearance. It helps balance your skin's pH level and sloughs away dead cell debris to keep your skin clean. Its anti-inflammatory effects can decrease local inflammation caused by acne. As an antibacterial, Manuka honey eliminates bacteria that infects pores and causes acne.

To harness the power of Manuka honey in your skincare routine, use it as a cleanser both morning and night, or as a 20-minute face mask. All Manuka honey is given a bioactive rating that reflects the level of naturally occurring peroxide activity. The entire range of its medicinal properties is safe for even the most sensitive skin types.

Here's how to get Manuka honey to work for you:

Applying Manuka honey to your skin can keep moisture locked in, without making it feel too oily, which is great for preventing and minimizing wrinkles. After cleansing, use your fingers to spread about 1 tablespoon of high-quality Manuka honey over your entire face in a thick layer. Leave on your skin a minimum of 20 minutes. If you have more time, feel free to turn on your favorite show and leave it on as long as you like! It is extremely healing to the skin and will not cause irritation. I recommend you use it on your face at least 3 times a week.
