Interesting Benefits Of Natural Honey In Skincare

by | Aug 24, 2022

I have done a few weird things in the past, and one of them( so I thought)  was applying raw honey to my skin. But I soon realized the whole hype about the impressive benefits of honey on the skin was not a farce after all. 

Honey has been one of the oldest skincare ingredients ever known to man. From the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, medieval civilization has long explored the magic of honey on the skin. 

Rumor also has it that the famous beauty goddess Cleopatra used a blend of honey and milk in her skincare routine. I certainly would not be surprised about that. 

With a surge in demand for all-natural wellness essentials, more people are including  products with raw honey such as Organic Memories’ Victory Bar Soap in their skin care routine. 

But how is it possible for this sweet, viscous food substance made by honey bees to be able to improve your skin radiance and keep it smooth? 

The only way to find out is to look at its content. 


What’s in Natural Honey
 

Honey, as it exists in the beehive, is the best way to describe natural honey. It is produced by extracting honey from the hive’s honeycomb and passing it through a mesh to separate the honey from impurities such as dead bees and beeswax. 

Raw and unfiltered honey contains a host of essential vitamins and minerals, including: 

  • Amino acids 
  • Calcium
  • Copper 
  • Iron 
  • B vitamins( B6 Thiamine, riboflavin, niacin) 
  • Potassium
  • Phosphorus
  • Magnesium
  • Manganese 

Natural honey loses both its healing and nutritional power when it is heated. The unique extracting process of natural honey makes it particularly valuable for cosmetic applications for various skin problems. 

You can find raw honey at your local health food store or farmers’ market. Or better still, you can order natural skincare products infused with raw honey at Organic memories.

 Since I discovered the amazing benefits of honey for skin, I have become an advocate for its topical use and wish I had joined sooner. 


Benefits of Honey for Skin

So here are some benefits of natural honey in skincare: 

It is a natural exfoliator 

Let’s begin with the use of raw honey as an exfoliator. You can use a honey face mask to take care of itchy and irritated skin. Exfoliation refers to removing dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin. While other natural items such as sugar and oatmeal can also be used for exfoliating, raw honey is the real deal. 

Ensure you clean your face before applying a thin layer of raw honey to your skin and leave it for about 10 minutes before rinsing your face with warm water and rubbing it dry. 

It is the ideal daily cleanser

Similarly, natural honey is a perfect daily cleanser you can bank on. You can use raw honey as a DIY Face cleanser without worrying about stripping your natural oils.

Thanks to its antimicrobial properties, raw honey can fight acne. 

In addition, natural honey can help your pores and remove those troublesome acne scars and keep you hydrated. 

Excellent moisturizer 

Hydrated skin absorbs and retains moisture. Natural honey contains antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which help protect and prevent the skin from damage.

But that’s not all. Honey’s anti-oxidation capability makes it extremely beneficial for skin hydration and smoothing and softening your complexion. And yes, raw honey is very calming to the skin, so it doesn’t matter whether you have sensitive skin. 

For treating acne 

So whether you have dry skin, oily skin, or sensitive skin like mine, raw honey helps to soothe your skin and enhance circulation, promoting a healthy glow.

I did mention earlier that honey is a natural exfoliator. So it makes a lot of sense why raw honey is widely used to treat acne. 

Its anti-inflammatory properties help it to remove excess oil from the surface. More so, as an antioxidant, antiseptic, and antibacterial ingredient, natural honey is what you need to get rid of that acne.
