7 Amazing Topical Benefits of Real Manuka Honey
From the bees in the faraway North Island of New Zealand comes manuka honey. The bees feed on the manuka shrub which in turn, allows them to create honey that has higher therapeutic properties than any other type of raw honey in the world.
While all types of raw, organically-produced honey have an antibiotic quality, what makes manuka honey so unique is MG (methylglyoxal), which is found in other types of honey but not in such large quantities as with manuka honey. It is because of this natural content of antibacterial powers that manuka honey is revered for safe and effective use topically to treat a variety of skin conditions.
How can real, raw and unprocessed manuka honey benefit your skin?
1. Clears up acne and blemishes
If you’re prone to breakouts, using manuka honey on your skin will help clear it up. It possesses anti-inflammatory properties, healing even the most irritated skin. Because of its composition, it naturally oxygenates pores which helps draw out the bacteria responsible for causing acne. Clearer skin days are ahead!
2. Soothes rashes
Got a rash? This amazing superfood has super powers to soothe irritation away and relieve the itchiness that comes with all kinds of rashes.
3. Skin repair
Wish that scar you got when you were younger would just go away? You can fade it away with manuka honey. It stimulates skin regeneration and repairs cell damage so that scars virtually melt away.
4. Relieves sensitive skin conditions
For those suffering with irritating skin conditions like rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis, try using manuka honey to bring relief. It can reduce inflammation and rid the body of skin irritants, it leaving the skin soothed and refreshed.
5. Skin lightening and brightening
Unsightly dark spots on your skin? You can make them disappear by smoothing this amazing ingredient onto the areas you want to fade away for naturally lighter and brighter skin.
6. Naturally hydrates
If your skin is prone to dryness, try smoothing manuka honey onto it. It absorbs moisture from the air and traps it in, keeping your skin looking hydrated, refreshed, and radiant.
7. Anti-aging agent
And finally, if your skin problem is warding off the visible signs of aging, since manuka honey is so hydrating without creating a greasy or oily feel, it is ideal for banishing wrinkles. Plus, it stops MMPs (Matrix Metalloproteinases), enzymes that are activated with the exposure of UV rays or by inflammation. MMPs destroy collagen which is what keeps skin looking younger, bouncier, and plumper, so fight it away with a little bee power!
