I Bet You Didn’t Know Honey Could Do This
Posted by Jasmine Taylor-Moran in Hands & Feet
Honey has many uses in the home; from cooking and cleaning, it has also found its way into our skincare and cosmetics, due to its wondrous healing, rejuvenating and antibacterial properties it’s so famous for. When suffering from eczema or dry skin on our hands, it’s important to keep our skin full of moisture to avoid itchiness and soreness.
Honey has been used on our skin since the dawn of time, by both the rich and the poor. Its earliest recorded use by royalty was in 1370 BC by Nefertiti, the wife of Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaen. Again in 30 AD by Emperor Nero’s second wife and later between the 1600s and 1700s by Queen Anne, the Duchess of Marlborough, King Louis XV of France’s mistress and in the Chinese Ming Dynasty where women in the Emperor’s Court blended honey and ground orange seeds to keep their skin youthful, fresh and blemish-free.
Raw honey is packed full of enzymes and nutrients which nourish and heal the skin. As a natural humectant, it draws moisture into the skin and traps it there to prevent the skin from drying out. Bee Good Honey and Crambe Hand Cream soothes, softens and protects, healing any dry skin on your hands as it is easily absorbed and super moisturising. The locally sourced British wildflower honey, nourishing crambe oil and protective borage oil makes this natural, organic skincare brand our dry skin saviours. The addition of beeswax, vitamin E, camelina oil and British propolis add to the incredible concoction of ingredients.
Now, honey is used widely to treat acne, ageing and dry skin on your hands and face by combining raw honey, beeswax, propolis and other natural, organic ingredients specifically picked for their different beneficial properties and can now be found in a multitude of skin care products across the world.
