The Best Mānuka Honey for Anti-Aging


Vibrant, radiant skin is something most of us covet and while aging is a natural part of life to be embraced, it doesn't mean we shouldn't care for our skin. Taking steps to nurture our skin allows us to present our best selves, exuding confidence and radiance at every age. It also allows us to feel that we are looking after ourselves as best we can not only with what we eat but also with what we are applying to our skin.

There are countless serums and creams boasting complex ingredient lists, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and uncertain about what we're putting on our skin. But what if we told you there's a natural ingredient, crafted by our hard-working bees, that could be the game-changer you've been searching for?



Beyond its delectable taste, Steens Raw Manuka Honey honey possesses unique properties that work wonders in the fight against aging. We tested our UMF 20+ (MGO 829) in an IANZ accredited laboratory and the results of the report reveal that the enzymes found in our Manuka Honey play a vital role in preserving the hyaluronic acid naturally present in your skin, allowing skin to remain plump, and effectively reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This, coupled with its innate humectant properties, makes Manuka Honey an invaluable asset in your anti-aging regime.

But that's not all. Steens® Mānuka Honey's natural humectant properties also help to lock in moisture, ensuring your skin remains hydrated and supple. Its anti-inflammatory benefits further soothe irritation and redness, leaving you with a complexion that's smoother and more even-toned, and its anti-bacterial properties are perfect for skin that suffers from acne or blemishes.


Incorporating Manuka Honey into your skincare routine is simpler than you might think (and doesn't involve a sticky pillowcase). Whether you opt to use it on its own, or mix it with other key ingredients, creating your own DIY masks and treatments is easy. Check out our blog for some different ideas on how to indulge in some pampering self-care right from the comfort of your own home. 

If you're curious to try Mānuka Honey in your anti-aging skincare routine, make sure you add a UMF 20+ jar from the Steens Targeted Collection to your next shop, and remember that glowing skin is created from the inside AND out, so ensure you're supporting your immune system naturally with a UMF 10+ or UMF 15+ Mānuka Honey from the Steens Daily Collection.
