Previously on Honey and Spice: We covered a few of the benefits of wild honey. How pure and raw wild honey has expansive properties and can be used to effectively cure various health problems.
On this episode, we’ll be covering the benefits of honey on the skin. Wild Honey’s anti-bacterial properties not only heal wounds and reduce acne, but it also hydrates and rejuvenates the skin.
Wild Honey’s anti-microbial properties forbid the growth of harmful bacteria on the skin. Its anti-oxidant properties remove all the free radicals accumulating on the skin. These properties help in preventing premature ageing. Wild honey also acts as a pore cleanser and gentle exfoliator.
Another property that works in favor of great skin is Wild Honey’s balancing properties. The least scientific way of explaining this property would be to say, both honey and our skin have acidic properties. So when our skin’s pH level is out of balance, honey helps in bringing it back to a healthy pH level – 5.5.
Wild Honey is a natural humectant. This means honey can draw moisture from the air and locks it into the skin. The upshot of this action is that your skin has long-lasting hydration so your skin is soft and supple.
To sum it all up, unprocessed honey gives you healthy and clear skin along with a glowing complexion.
When wild honey is mixed with other ingredients, it opens doors for numerous other benefits. On the next episode of Honey and Spice, we have a descriptive list of face masks that you can try out for your unique skin type. So stay tuned!
Here's a video on how the honey collection takes place in the forests of central India. Honey and Spice works with the World wildlife fund (WWF) and tribal honey hunters in Chattisgarh to bring you this rare, medicinal and exotic honey right from the jungles.
