We all know that honey is delicious to eat and it's sugars are digested by your body much better than other sugars, but did you know that honey is good for your skin? Honey is used in bandaging to heal wounds as well as in body products. That's because honey is:
- Anti-bacterial, anti-microbial
- Conditioning, softening and healing
- High in anti-oxidants
- Moisturizing which slows aging
Check out our video above to learn how to use honey as a face wash. Make sure you use raw honey or else you'll, most likely, be washing your face with corn syrup, not real honey. Yuck!
Our friends at Ola Hawaiian Body Products use our honey and beeswax in their face masks, foot creams and salves. My favorite is their new Aina Taro Honey Facial Mask. It's ideal for dry or mature skin. This almost edible mask is made with coconut milk, honey, taro, and banana to deeply hydrate and moisturize your skin. I cannot say enough great things about this company. They source local ingredients, make a great product for your skin and don't test on animals. They're definitely a company you can feel good about supporting!
