Honey...it’s not just for your tea! We are breaking down four reasons that this low pH, natural ingredient is great for your skin.
It works as a cleanser.
One of the main reasons that honey-infused cleansers are amazing is because honey is naturally antibacterial! This super ingredient will work to cleanse your skin of any dirt, oil and debris, while also locking in that honey-level moisture.
It treats acne.
Like we mentioned above, honey is naturally antibacterial (and anti-fungal to boot), which also makes it great for the treatment of acne! If your skin is irritated, oily and acne-prone, we always recommend our Aloisia Beauty Honey Glow Mask; it’s enriched with a deeply nourishing blend of honey, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, and camelia sinesis (Green Tea Extract) to help purify, soothe, and moisturize inflamed, irritated skin associated with acne, dryness, and environmental stress, while also promoting a radiant glow. Additionally, the mask’s silky Luxe Cupra fabric allows for deeper-penetrating absorption and stays firmly and comfortably in place during application!
It fades scars and hyperpigmentation.
Since honey contains trace amounts of hydrogen peroxide, it’s also known to help lighten up any existing acne scars or skin discoloration that you might have.
It’s also perfect for sensitive skin.
Even though we’ve been singing honey’s praises when it comes to fighting acne, the powerful natural ingredient is also particularly effective for those with sensitive skin. Since it’s so hydrating and nurturing, there are little to no side effects for those who use it and tend to react harshly to other ingredients.
