It seems like a new, miracle ingredient promising healthier skin populates into our social feed daily. Many of these so-called miracles are hard to pronounce, let alone put on your face! These buzz-worthy beauty ingredients rarely have any scientific research or history behind them.
Don’t be lured by the shiny new object—stick with clean beauty ingredients that have withstood the test of time. Like how about more than 5,000 years... That's how long Honey has been a beauty secret.
Secret's out of the bag: Honey is an amazing skincare ingredient with a ton of benefits. Some fun facts about Honey:
- Honey was given as a gift to Gods in Ancient Egypt. It was also associated with healing benefits. Honey has been part of beauty regimens for many of history’s most beautiful people.
- Women in the Emperor’s Court during the Ming Dynasty in China blended Honey with ground orange seeds to keep their skin fresh and blemish free.
- Cleopatra, who to this day is considered one of history’s most beautiful women, used Honey in daily beauty rituals to keep her skin smooth and firm.
- The Honey fanbase includes Nero’s second wife Poppaea Sabina, Hippocrates (who used it for baldness and prevention of treatment scars), Nefertiti (also considered one of history’s most beautiful women) and royals such as Queen Anne and Sarah, the Duchess of Marlborough.
There are several reasons why Honey is a time-honored ingredient that has endured the test of time while people give up on other formulas.
Consider this: Honey never spoils. That makes it a natural preservative. Honey is packed with many amino acids, vitamins, mineral and enzymes that are all good for your skin.
What makes it so effective is that Honey has more naturally occurring antioxidants than almost any other botanically or naturally derived source. Honey helps reduce the negative effects of free radicals—known to wreak havoc on your skin and cause damage.
Honey’s benefits aren’t limited to the skin. You’ve probably used Honey for a cold or sore throat. The same reason Honey is a remedy for those aliments is why it also is well suited for addressing skin conditions and used in wound healing. Honey is loaded with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also is a humectant meaning it helps retain moisture to the skin.
During these past few months, many of us have put ingredients in our skin care regimens—looking for safer and cleaner ingredients with protective qualities.
Honey checks off all the boxes.
Hey Honey, the first complete skincare and body line infused with Raw Honey and Bee Propolis, is a must have on your holiday list (and in your daily skincare routine). Hey Honey Skincare offers a full range of products formulated with the potent and powerful combination of Raw Honey and Bee Propolis.
While Honey is easy to understand, Bee Propolis isn’t as well known, but that’s what makes Hey Honey unique. To put it simply, Bee Propolis is a resinous mixture that functions as a natural disinfectant against bacteria. Bee Propolis has also been a personal care secret for decades.
Now that you realize Honey’s history, add it to your holiday shopping list—and your personal skincare as well.
