Manuka Honey for Acne

Acne can be a persistent and frustrating skin concern for many of us. While there are countless skincare products on the market, sometimes the best solutions are found in nature. 

Here are 3 reasons why you should try Manuka Honey on your acne.

1. Antibacterial Properties 

Manuka honey has remarkable antibacterial qualities, primarily due to its high methylglyoxal content. Scientific Research has shown that this unique compound has been proven to combat and eliminate the bacteria responsible for causing acne. By reducing the presence of these acne-causing bacteria, Manuka honey helps prevent new breakouts and promotes clearer skin.

2. Hydrating

If you are someone who suffers from oily skin, it is natural to want to remove all moisturizing products from your skincare regime. Oily skin still needs moisturizer because it helps regulate oil production. Not moisturizing can cause your skin to produce more oil to hydrate itself.

Manuka Honey is a superb humectant, which means it can attract and retain moisture. When applied to the skin, honey helps lock in hydration, keeping it soft, supple, and moisturized. 

3. Soothing and Anti-Inflammatory

Acne often goes hand in hand with redness, inflammation, and skin irritation. Manuka honeys' anti-inflammatory properties work wonders in calming and soothing these skin issues. It can reduce redness and swelling, providing relief from the discomfort associated with acne. This soothing effect makes Manuka honey an excellent choice for those with sensitive or inflamed skin.
