Five Manuka honey masks to suit any skin
From skin concerns to dry and sensitive skin, a Manuka honey facemask could be your perfect skin solution.
Nature comes up with some incredible things, doesn’t she?
Manuka honey is definitely one of them. It has been known to have antibacterial properties – helping reduce the appearance of spots and blemishes – and does so better than other honey types.
What’s more, properties in the honey mean it can combat the bacteria that binds to irritated skin, aiding healing.
And best of all it’s multifunctional. What other product can take you from cleanse to moisturise – and sweeten your tea?
So find a little me-time, cleanse your face thoroughly and get ready to reveal better skin in under 30 minutes.
The spot-clearing mask
Manuka honey has been used by Maori people for centuries as a soothing balm for sore skin, and beauty aficionados credit Manuka with spot-soothing properties.
Honey is credited as a humectant, (humectants help bind moisture to the skin), so expect skin to feel softer, too.
The anti-ageing mask
Another awesome property of honey is its healthy-ageing properties – and you can support this with a mask that includes egg whites.
Egg whites contain collagen and proteins, which can improve the appearance of skin tone and elasticity, while the honey can moisturise.
The soothing mask
Oats have been credited with soothing properties and are recommended to calm itching.
When mixed with Manuka honey, oats are ideal for irritated skin that needs a little TLC.
The moisturising mask
This is a great post-brunch recipe for avocado fans… Fats and vitamin E in the avocado work well with honey’s humectant properties, leaving you fresh-faced after 15 minutes.
The exfoliating mask
Being sticky means you can mix your Manuka with either salt or sugar to create an effective and eco-friendly exfoliator.
