Nourishing, healing and antioxidant, honey has many cosmetic properties recognized for millennia. It was used as the basis of beauty care of Egyptian, Greek and ancient women. Moreover, its subtly sweet smell that puts our senses on the alert and its amber hues those warm us. Honey is a delight for our epidermis that softens the cold season.
Indeed, honey-based body and face care protects the skin from dehydration, and have a great interest in winter when heating, polar temperatures and icy wind dry out our skin.
Honey has an incredible number of beneficial properties for our skin. It has a strong moisturizing and nourishing power allowing the maintenance of the water in the epidermis, for a more smooth and soft skin. Honey plays the role of natural antibiotic, which is very interesting for skins with imperfections or in case of a wound infection. If we add to this its anti-inflammatory side, it is easy to understand that it constitutes a base of choice in skin issue treatments.
It can even be used as a cleanser, instead of the usual gel. The hydrogen peroxide that it contains will have an astringent effect on your skin, and will allow it to get rid of accumulated impurities throughout the day.
Finally, rich in minerals, amino acids and vitamins, it has a fabulous cellular regeneration power.
The honey coming from flowers concentrates many vitamins, mineral salts, and antioxidants. All these nutrients are then easily assimilated by the skin or by the hair fiber and thus make our epidermis and our hair stronger and more resistant in the long term.
