Providing my skin with proper care is of great importance to me, especially when it comes to my facial skin. In the search for the right product, I’ve decided to go for something natural and effective. So, I’ve cleared a special place in my kitchen for the best product I’ve ever used – the Manuka honey. Since I bought it, I can’t stop using it; every week or so, I apply this miracle of nature on my skin. I’m even more in love with it since reading that many celebrities are using this product to boost the health of their skin, among which is one of my favorite actresses, Scarlet Johansson.
If you too want to have clear, hydrated and youthful skin (just like Scarlet), Mauka honey is your best natural choice. The good thing is that manuka honey is an easily accessible product. You can find this skin health booster in an all-natural product shops or even better, you can go online and purchase a bottle of manuka honey from a reputable supplier. Most of them are able to provide manuka honey in Australia and all around the world. Before making your purchase, let’s learn more about this natural product and what the skin benefits of using manuka honey are.
Manuka honey in Australia is produced by bees that pollinate the native Australian Manuka plant. It’s widely used in both modern and traditional medicine because of its natural antibacterial properties. This product contains the highest level of MG – methylglyoxal, known to have the abilities to kill most of the recognizable viruses and types of bacteria like Helicobacter pylori, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes. This antibacterial compound (although present in most types of honey), is what makes Manuka honey special – Manuka contains up to hundred times more MG compared to regular honey.
As I mentioned above, Manuka honey is my go-to skin product and here are few reasons why it should also yours.
- Clear skin – Because of its natural antibacterial properties, manuka honey does wonders for our skin. It has amazing anti-inflammatory properties, so it calms the inflamed skin while healing blemishes. It regulates the pH levels of the skin and because of the amino acids in its structure, it removes dead skin cells, thus keeping the pores clear.
- Anti-aging – Methylglyoxal has been shown to boost collagen cross-linking, helping the production of collagen in skin cells. Healthy collagen, means healthy, youthful-looking skin.
- Keeps skin moisturized – Manuka honey is the perfect humectant drawing moisture deep into the skin. This hydration helps to further improve the elasticity of the skin and cell regeneration.
I use manuka honey weekly as a facial mask. I first wash my face with backing soda, then apply a teaspoon layer of manuka honey on my face and let it sit for about 30 minutes. Then I wash it off with warm water. No matter how you will use manuka honey, it is of main importance to make sure that you purchase genuine manuka honey. Since the number of fraudsters in this multi-million-dollar industry constantly increases, making a well informed decision is vital. A reputable supplier should be able to provide you with high quality Australian-made natural health product.
