Honey's about flower power. It’s bursting with floral water that contains numerous mineral salts, amino acids and vitamins A, B and C. It's also fructose and glucose-rich (around 80%), both of which are sugars that harness water in the upper layers of our skin.
The result? Glowing, moisturised skin. Honey boasts a wealth of other properties: antioxidant, anti-septic, healing (works wonders on acne-prone skin), hydrating, nourishing, soothing - perfect for dry, sensitive skin - toning and revitalising. So no wonder honey's often blended into our favourite skin-pampering products - face masks, cleansers, lip balms, and more.
