Raw honey can hydrate the skin, leaving it soft, radiant and glowing. The natural sugars in honey act as a humectant and emollient that boost water content and reduce dryness of the skin even after they have been rinsed away.
One of my favorite benefits! The enzymes in honey work well as a gentle exfoliator, helping your complexion to be healthy and radiant!
Honey is a terrific wound healer. The antioxidants in honey nourish damaged skin, helping along the scar healing process. In addition, honey has natural antiseptic properties that defend the body against infection and protect wounds, all of which can reduce scarring and cut down on healing time.
You read that right. Honey has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and swelling of acne spots. As an added bonus, its antibacterial properties can help fight acne-causing bacteria. Because honey keeps the skin well-hydrated and balanced, it helps control oil production. Win, win, win!
