You may have used honey for baking or cooking purposes, but did you know that honey also has many beauty benefits as well?
Honey has natural antibacterial qualities, but know that not all honey is created equal. Depending on the type of honey, when and how it's harvested, the antibacterial quality of the honey will vary. Typical raw unfiltered honey is a rich source of nutrients like amino acids, B vitamins, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, and zinc. But Manuka honey has 4x the nutritional value of normal flower honey.
Many beauty brands are now including manuka honey into its products and because of its antibacterial quality, there are many ways honey can help your skin:
Honey protects against damage caused by bacteria and can also reduce pain and inflammation.
It has clarifying benefits to help unclog pores.
Honey is full of antioxidants that slow down the aging process.
