EWG beauty review

Scientific Name: {Honey Bee—Apis mellifera}

The ancient Egyptians first used honey as a skin treatment and help with cuts and blemishes. It was not until recently that studies reveal honey’s naturally antibacterial and antioxidant powers. And because it is so readily available and so easy to use, organic, raw honey is a great addition to any skin care regimen. The enzymes, vitamins, and raw sugars that it contains fight acne, aging, and inflammation, for one of the most effective, most unexpected beauty solutions.

As an antibacterial agent, honey can moisturize the skin without clogging pores and gets rid of the bacteria from skin that causes acne. In addition to bacteria, the skin’s oils are what cause pimples to occur. By moisturizing the skin properly, it can produce less of its oil, and there is less of a likelihood that a blemish will develop. Because honey nourishes the skin, allowing brittle cell structures to become more elastic and pliable, cells are better able to hold their moisture, which also helps to keep the skin from becoming oily. honey avocado face mask

Because it is such a great source of moisture, it can even be used to strengthen and moisturize dry, brittle, and broken hair. It will both nourish the scalp, helping to get rid of dandruff, while sealing and healing individual shafts of hair, so that they appear shinier and are more resistant to falling out and split ends.

The antioxidant not only protects the skin from the effects of the sun’s rays. It can also restore the underlying layers of skin, which often causes lines, wrinkles, and age spots. By fighting free radicals, honey prolongs the life of your cells, keeping complexion looking fresh and bright.

By providing proper moisture and adequate moisture and helping to prevent harm, honey can keep skin looking young and vibrant. When mixed with an organic salt, it can slough away dead skin while hydrating. Combined with other natural emollients, it can help to rescue severely damaged skin and hair.

Though it is very unlikely, before using any product that contains honey, test a small patch of skin to make sure you are allergic to it. Honey is a natural preservative and anti-inflammatory agent, which makes it great for sensitive skin, which might react badly to the artificial ingredient some cosmetic companies use as fillers in their products. Make sure that your honey products are made only with raw, natural honey.
