If you have been to a Whole Foods or any kind of holistic store recently you may have spotted a little thing called Mānuka Honey. Mānuka honey is a honey produced in Australia and New Zealand from the nectar of the mānuka tree. The honey holds medicinal properties and is the most potent anti bacterial honey available and is often used as an alternative medicine. One question commonly asked about Manuka Honey is are its benefits fiction or fact? In the world of skin care it’s benefits have been raved about far and wide.
Manuka Honey can be worn as a mask, a cleanser, or as spot treatment. A jar of Manuka Honey on average costs around 25 dollars which is a bit pricey for a jar of honey but for a multi used skin care product the price seems significantly less ludicrous. As a cleanser it can be used daily, and moisturizes the skin and helps heals scars. As a mask it should be used weekly. As a person who has used Manuka Honey, I can say that it has definitely helped with the luminosity of my skin and helped keep my skin moisturized, but has not really helped with the removal of acne. For it’s price I do not think it is worth a purchase unless you have very dry skin.
