Honey used to be a sign of prosperity and till today it still considered a very important part of our society. Especially since the cosmetic world has discovered honey and its healing properties for their benefits. However, this is not a new trend - even the ancient Egyptians already knew about the healing power of honey. They used it as medicine, processed it to ointments or even to antibiotics. How honey helps our health and how it affects our skin, we have found out all of it for you.
Honey Acts Against Acne
It’s not only children who sleep better after a cup of hot milk with honey, but it is also for skin which is affected by acne, this liquid gold helps. The best effect is when you rub the honey on your face, possibly diluted with a little warm water. Why does honey have such an effective effect against pimples and acne? This is probably because honey has two important properties: it is antibacterial and healing. This means that harmful bacteria, which are responsible for any unwelcome pimples, is combated by honey and inflammation is cured at the same time.
Apart from that honey also removes dead skin cells, which is due to the enzymes contained in the honey. At the same time, it can also be used as a natural exfoliant that is gentle on the skin.

Honey and Royal Jelly: A Weapon against Wrinkles

Propolis Supports Skincare
Propolis is another substance that is produced by bees but is not directly contained in honey - although there are already different varieties of honey that have been refined with propolis. Propolis consists to a large extent of tree resin, but also contains beeswax, as well as minerals, flavonoids, trace elements and even amino acids.
Propolis inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria, fungal spores and viruses, which is of course important to the hive. But this property is not only essential for the hive, but can also be used by humans: and by those with impure skin. It has an analgesic, antibacterial effect, promotes wound healing and inhibits inflammation at the same time.
