Queen Bee Knows BestPosted on
When in doubt, it’s usually best to go with Mother Nature. After all, she’s been getting it right for millennia, and as members of her intricate web of life, we could do worse than turn to her for some skin care advice. And one of her premier beauty products turns out to be honey.
The list of honey’s benefits for your skin is really quite long. So we’ll just have a quick peek at it today. For example, it’s a fantastic moisturizer because it’s what chemists refer to as a humectant. That means that it actually pulls moisture out of the air and moves it into the layers of your skin.
Because of the way bees make honey, it’s also a great source of antioxidants, enzymes and even antibacterial elements that can help cleanse and nourish your skin. By combining the nectar, pollen, and plant resins they collect, the bees produce this super healthy syrup that has a huge range of uses. The enzymes can help clarify your skin and keep your pores nice and clean, and the antioxidants can help repair damage your skin may have suffered from the environment. Honey is also a natural anti-inflammatory so it will calm redness and irritation while the antibacterial components go to work preventing infection. It’s like a one-stop pharmacy for your skin.
When you think about all that honey can do for your skin, you won’t be surprised to learn that we have a ritual here at DuBunne Spa Club & Massage Centre that’s built upon the great things honey can do for you. Our Honey Melt Wrap Ritual combines the goodness of honey with dry brushing, massage, and wrap techniques to renew your skin as well as your soul.
