If it’s good for your body, it should also be good for your skin. Superfoods are always recommended for that extra boost of nutrition so why not take that same approach by including them in your skincare regimen. Ingredients such as berries, apple, and chia seeds are often seen in skincare but honey seems to be the most popular of them all.
It’s no surprise that honey is indeed extremely beneficial for both the body and skin — this is proven with its rich history and popularity among the ladies since centuries ago. Honey is a natural anti-ageing and anti-bacterial ingredient, with the addition of brightening and moisturising properties. Depending on the type of honey, it has even more added benefits. For example, the Manuka honey is not only as nourishing but it also acts as a natural gentle exfoliator and is commonly used in masks.
So before you start slathering this sweet gooey ingredient all over your skin, perhaps you can consider these honey-infused skincare products first. They are packed with the same sweet honey benefits — potent with its natural properties. Here are our top picks.
One of Origins’ best-selling mask is now available in a much gentler approach without compromising its powerful detoxing properties. The Clear Improvement Honey Charcoal Mask sees the addition of wildflower honey and superfood-charged fermented honey that give immersive conditioning benefits.
A repair serum that plumps up the skin and refines skin’s texture, but the unique feature about this is that its active ingredients are concentrated in micro-drops — which preserve their purest and most natural form possible. The ingredients consist of an exclusive blend of Royal Jelly and a combination of honey variants including Ouessant and Corsica’s.
