Honey is super delicious but did you know it's been a trusted medicinal ingredient for ages? Yep, honey's use in healing and nurturing the body inside and out has been common for centuries. When consumed, honey can help provide relief from coughs, gastrointestinal problems, fatigue, vertigo, eczema, high cholesterol and for some, even seasonal allergies. Applied topically, its antibacterial and antiviral properties make it helpful in treating wounds, burns, dandruff and fungal infections.
In beauty routines, honey's been touted as a natural face cleanser, exfoliant and mask to name a few smart uses. It's increasingly common as an ingredient in beauty goods like lotions, lip balms, scrubs, shampoos, serums and salves. This is due to honey's beautifying properties that can help hydrate, brighten and nourish skin. It's how we know you'll fall in love with Milk Honey Love, one of our fine small-batch soaps.
We owe so much to honey--a beauty ingredient that's not only delicious but also ultra helpful in keeping skin healthy. Talk about a multi-tasking dream! Do you use honey in your skincare routine?
