Manuka Honey Skincare Benefits
As we age, wrinkles aren’t the only skin concern we might be dealing with, spots can often occur in later life. Thanks to the wonder of nature, you don’t have to revert to traditional topical acne creams, as these can leave skin dry and irritated. Manuka honey could be exactly what your skincare regime needs.
The importance of honey for skincare has been documented in the world’s oldest medical literatures and since ancient times it has been known to possess antimicrobial activity as well as wound-healing properties.
Manuka honey is both moisturising and antimicrobial meaning that it not only fights bacteria, it hydrates and soothes skin too. Its high sugar content means it prevents most microorganisms from growing by limiting the available water plus the antibacterial compound called methylglyoxal (MGO) increases the antibacterial effect.
