Why celebrities use Manuka honey

Why celebrities use Manuka honey

Manuka honey has gained huge popularity from film stars and celebrities around the world for its cosmetic application.

Why is this when there are so many so called "high end" cosmetic formulations available at exorbitant prices which these stars could so easily afford?

The simple reason is that Manuka honey in its natural form is simply a better product and far better than these synthetic man made facial creams.

All honey contains a wealth of vitamins, flavinoids, minerals created and stored as the perfect food for sustaining the bee colony through the winter months - it is their pantry.

But what separates Manuka honey, especially high quality Manuka honey with UMF certification containing high levels of methylglyoxal or MGO is its ability to fight bacteria, protecting the skin from harmful bacteria that can cause outbreaks of acne, rosacea and fungal invasion causing eczema and seborrheic dermatitis.

A mask or cream containing Manuka honey has the ability to prevent these infections from becoming established and will even eliminate deep seated acne.

Honey also has another great attribute, its hygroscopic property attracts moisture when applied to the skin. Therefore even in the harshest drying climates honey will keep your skin moist and young looking.

So how do you use Manuka honey as a facial treatment?

If you suffer from acne or rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis or eczema, you can apply pure Manuka honey directly to your skin. 

Ok, it will be sticky initially so you will probably want to apply it at night, if you don't mind the stickyness you can leave it on all night and just rinse it off in the shower in the morning before applying your regular makeup for the day ahead.

If you are not so keen on the idea of applying pure Manuka honey directly from the pot, (but believe me it really works) and prefer something more absorbent and user friendly there are a range of wonderful creams that contain the same high quality Manuka UMF honey just for this purpose. There is also a cleanser that contains the same Manuka UMF honey for removing the grime and pollutants that you will encounter during the day.

So if you have sensitive skin or issues that make it prone to outbreaks, or simply want to give your skin the best treatment in the world give Manuka UMF honey or a cream containing it a try, you will love the results.
