The humble Honey Bee has just been declared the most important living being on the planet. This declaration is due to its crucial role in pollinating 70% of all agriculture worldwide, and doesn’t take into account the amazing beneficial outcome of all this pollination, Honey.
Natural Honey has healing properties that promote skin health. Its strong anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties have been used to cure a vast array of skin conditions for millennia. There are different types of honey such as Acacia Honey, Manuka Honey, Wildflower Honey, Raw Honeycomb and many more. Lemons are also a magic recipe to make our face look better. The lemon is an antioxidant, stimulant, and hydrator which are all requirements for a younger-looking face.

Here are the benefits of using honey on your face and skin
It’s a perfect daily cleanser. Honey on the skin is good for people who have an oily face that’s prone to acne. Honey’s antibacterial and antiseptic properties are known for fighting acne. It also helps to minimise your pores and get rid of those pesky blackheads.
It is time to say goodbye to itchy face and skin using honey as your honey skin treatment. Whatever combination of face masks you decide to use, do not forget honey as your first choice. To apply honey on your face, just wet your face with lukewarm water, gently massage in a circular motion and leave it for 5 to 10 minutes. For best results, use honey three times a week.
Moisturise Your Face and Skin
This may sound strange, but the results are amazing. Simply remove any makeup, wet your face, take a dollop of any natural honey such as our Australian Manuka range, and apply it like you would any other moisturiser, leave it for a few minutes to work its magic, then easily rinse it off with water. Honey rinses off surprisingly easily and will not leave your face feeling sticky.
Heal The Skin
If you’re looking to heal a recurring skin problem such as acne, eczema and psoriasis and others, honey may be your answer. The enormous advantage of honey on skin is it performs a healing process to any type of skin disease.
