It is sweet. It is as old as history, with mentions throughout. It traverses the ages, continents and cultures. We are talking about good old honey; you know, that stuff that is synonymous with love and mythical beliefs to go with it. But honey is not only sweet, it is a an extremely good natural beauty product. Honey is good for skin.
As a popular all-natural ingredient, honey has often been used in everything from hand lotions to bar soaps and bubble bath elixirs. And now, according to a recent double-blind clinical study conducted by cyberDERM Clinical Studies and the National Honey Board, honey was scientifically proven to effectively moisturize the skin.
As a natural humectant, honey attracts and retains moisture. Honey can help keep skin hydrated and glowing, providing a homemade alternative to store- bought products. Maintaining proper moisture is crucial during seasonal challenges like dry, cold winters or, conversely, hot summer weather when moisture is drawn from the skin.
“Wholesome, all-natural honey is a perfect fit for a variety of moisturizing beauty remedies,” said Regine Berthelot of Caudalíe Vinotherapie Spa at The Plaza Hotel in New York City. “That’s why we include honey in several of our skincare treatments, from the Crushed Cabernet Scrub and Honey and Wine Wrap to our signature Caudalíe Grand Facial. Honey moisturizes while the other ingredients exfoliate and protect the skin.” See original story
