I’m sure you’ve heard all about the health benefits of (properly made/concentrated) Manuka honey…
In terms of the much-lauded antibacterial properties of manuka honey, the jury’s still out – there needs to be a lot more lab testing before we can conclusively say that manuka honey is a powerful antibacterial agent.
However, either way, it does work really well as face mask – just as regular honey does with the added bonus of some antibacterial activity.
Before you guys ask, I buy my manuka honey from Holland and Barrett – a local health food store that stocks good quality manuka honey with a UMF of 20+.
Here’s how to do it:
I usually just use straight manuka on my face; I find that it leaves skin moisturised and calmed, perfect when your skin’s both dry and inflamed. If you’re on acne meds, this is a brilliant way to alleviate the associated dryness.
