Each day numerous skincare and hair products make their way to our desks, though lately we’ve noticed an ingredient trend: manuka honey.
This, of course, got us thinking about why this sweet ingredient is so great. So, we reached out to Erin Eisenhower, senior esthetician at Savor Beauty, to learn more about this beloved ingredient and what to pair it with for lasting results.
“Mauka honey is a gentle exfoliator that is super hydrating for those with acne and very dry skin,” Eisenhower said. Savor Beauty’s manuka honey mask is a must-try because it exfoliates and leaves skin feeling nicely plump and radiant.
Though, to receive the maximum glow, Eisenhower suggested following a honey mask with a serum and moisturizer to help lock in moisture. “Your skin absorbs all of these products,” she said.
You can also make your own simple honey-infused face mask at home, using Manuka Health MGO Honey and a few household ingredients to unclog pores and treat acne breakouts. Beauty experts swear by the results, suggesting the combination of a ripe banana, honey, turmeric powder and freshly squeezed lemon juice brightens their skin and leaves it feeling super soft and smooth. Manuka Health Honey, with all of its medicinal and beauty benefits, is available for purchase on Amazon.
Did we mention honey also works wonders for your hair? It hydrates tresses from root to tip. Our current favorite? Shea Moisture’s Manuka Honey & Yogurt hair care products, because it left it feeling strong and super soft. Below, a few of our favorite honey-infused products that continue to keep us glowing from the roots of our hair to the heels of our feet.
