Benefits Of Honey For The Skin
If you have acne prone skin, then honey will be your best friend. The antibacterial properties in honey help get rid of build up in your skin and clean it thoroughly. This also means that honey is great for burns and cuts.
Honey is full of antioxidants which is great for maintaining a nice glow to your skin and can also help with keeping your skin looking youthful.
Honey has great moisturising properties, so it’s great in face masks, lotions and balms. It’s all very soothing it’s great to apply on sunburn or other irritations.
There have been quite a few university studies that have evidence based research to support that honey does improve some skin conditions.
For example, studies have shown that honey can help rosacea and wound healing.
Honey has also been shown to have anti bacterial properties for the skin. For example this study showed that honey had healing properties for ulcers and other wounds and can help reduce skin inflammations.
This is one reason we use honey in our massage and facials and why it may reduce the redness of the skin.
Will I end up sticky at the end of the massage?
Not at all! As we go through massaging you with the warmed honey oil, we then hot towel off as we go so you don’t feel sticky at all afterwards. The honey oil has a really silky feel to it, not sticky or grabbing at all, and is beautiful to use to massage.
So you receive the lovely feel of quite a warm thick oil, the aroma of honey and all the health benefits of using honey on the skin, without being sticky at the end.
