Natural Beauty & Skincare Tips

Two Reasons to Add Honey to Your Favorite Moisturizer or Cream

Honey isn’t only for the kitchen…it’s a valuable skin saver too. Raw local honey is one of the best all-natural remedies you can apply to heal, nourish and protect your skin. It is best applied by adding it to your skin cream.

For one, honey has natural antibacterial properties and it has actually been used for centuries as an antimicrobial in salve form. It can be applied to kill bacteria on minor wounds like scrapes, burns, or cuts and it promotes healing of damaged tissues.

Second, honey is a natural humectant. A humectant is a substance that is added or applied to another to help it retain its moisture. Moisturizers can sometimes sit on top of our skin without “soaking in.” But by adding a humectant like raw honey it will enhance the hydrating power of your favorite go-to skin care moisturizer and penetrate deep within your skin.
