Real talk… I’m almost never without a jar of Wedderspoon Raw Manuka Honey KFactor 16 in my life! I literally use. it. for. everything! In my tea, in my ACV, in my smoothies, when I have a sore throat, on bug bites, burns (hubby’s a chef!), scars, dark spots – you name it! But… my absolute FAVE way to use it by far is… Facial Masks! It’s an absolute staple in my skincare routine + I pretty much never make a mask without it!
So, What’s The Big Deal About Manuka Honey?
Well… Manuka Honey comes from the flowers of Manuka Trees… aka… Tea Trees! Which are of course known for the amazing anti-fungal + anti-bacterial properties of our beloved, Tea Tree Oil! You can find a ton of other great nutritional info about Manuka Honey here.
In a nutshell though – it contains tons of live, active enzymes (which create natural hydrogen peroxide), in addition to Royal Jelly, Propolis, Pollen, Beeswax, complex natural sugars, vitamins + minerals… all of which are FAB for your skin + really help seal in moisture. So basically, it oxygenates your pores, kills bacteria + reduces redness, dark spots + inflammation!
And… one of the best things about Manuka Honey is that it’s great for all skin types! Anyone can use it! It works wonders for dry, dehydrated skin, seriously sensitive skin + for people with acne!
3 Ways to Mask With It
- When my skin’s super-dry or if I’m in a hurry… I’ll just use it alone. I slather some on clean face before jumping in the shower + I’m good to go!
- If I’m in the mood to DIY – I’ll use a teaspoon or two with a little yogurt and / or clays, essential oils, etc.
- Or… I’ll use it as an add-in with the (pre-made) powdered masks you mix yourself. It helps stop that super-tight, itchy, face-crackling feeling when you’re mask is “drying”!
