Discover Manuka Honey to Repair and Nourish Dry Skin

The benefits of honey - also known as “nectar of the gods” – have transcended time. Used by the Maoris in New Zealand, Manuka Honey has unique therapeutic and nutritional properties that make it a powerful ally to heal a broad variety of ills. Recently, this ultra-nourishing ingredient has made its entry into the beauty world thanks to its moisturizing and repairing qualities. Manuka Honey, especially good for mature and dry skin, is now infused in the formulas of more and more skin care products. Here is everything you need to know about the benefits of Manuka Honey and how to incorporate it into your own skin care routine.

Aging and Dry Skin

With age, the body's levels of hydration and nutrients decrease. Consequently, the skin develops deficiencies in certain essential substances, such as lipids and sebum which reduces its capacity to retain water. When the skin gets dry and dehydrated, signs of aging become more visible and sensations of tightness occur. Without a good anti-aging skin care routine, the discomfort may continue and wrinkles may deepen.

The Repairing Benefits of Manuka Honey

This type of honey containing high levels of natural elements is considered as one of the most powerful because of its antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory actions. Manuka Honey, thanks to its specific active component called Methylglyoxal, acts as a natural buffer against the growth of bacteria in the body and on the skin. Its composition rich in emollients, vitamins and minerals improves the skin moisture level, makes it more supple and strengthens the functions of the skin barrier. All these properties make Manuka Honey a key ingredient in the skin care routine for mature and very dry skin.
