aaahhh Honey Honey

SugarLipsOh the benefits of honey…where do we even start?!

First, we may not think of this because raw honey tends to be very sticky when it goes on our skin, but honey is actually a great moisturizer!  It is a humectant and it attracts moisture and keeps it in locked inside!  But it’s not just for dry skin, it’s great for those who have oily skin too because it will help your skin retain the moisture and elasticity without drying it out.

Second, this ingredient is a natural antioxidant.  It can protect like a natural form of sun screen and can help protect from sun damage, such as premature wrinkling.  But we’re not saying don’t put on your sunscreen and lather on the honey!  Look at it as being a good assistant.

Third, honey can help promote wound healing.  According to the New Zealand Dermatological Society, the chemical makeup of honey, largely sugars, has what is described as “high osmolality.” High osmolality when referring to honey means that the sugars interact with water in such a way that microorganisms cannot develop. In addition to the osmolality of honey, when the sweetener comes in contact with wound exudates—fluids that weep from sores or ulcers—hydrogen peroxide is produced. The creation of the hydrogen peroxide can provide antibacterial benefits to ulcerated areas, which speeds healing.
