How is Manuka honey different than regular honey?
Manuka honey comes from New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush. Also known as the Tea Tree. Manuka honey’s antibacterial properties are what set it apart from traditional honey. Since it has stronger properties it can reduce bacteria on the skin to prevent acne, reduce inflammation, stop enzymes such as cathepsins from destroying collagen, and is incredibly hydrating and soothing to the skin.
The antibacterial component in manuka honey is methylglyoxal (MG). MG is a compound found in most types of honey, but manuka honey has it in greater amounts. Honey producers have a scale for rating the potency of manuka honey. The rating is called UMF, which stands for Unique Manuka Factor. The UMF rating reflects the concentration of MG. It can be a bit more expensive than regular honey so it’s best to use it sparingly.
Manuka is a great staple for any natural beauty routine as it can be used as alone as a simple moisturizing and skin balancing face mask, mixed with herbal beauty powders such as turmeric or matcha green tea, and even used as a simple skin cleanser. And of course, this sweet treat can also be consumed regularly to encourage beauty from within.
Using natural ingredients is an incredible way to nourish your skin and to support graceful aging. The skin regenerates itself every 28 days, and 45 days for mature skin meaning anyone can have fresh healthy glowing skin at any age.
Try this DIY manuka honey turmeric face mask for healthy glowing skin at any age.
1 tsp manuka honey
1/2 tsp organic turmeric powder
optional: a few spritzes of rose water or hydrosol
Mix ingredients together
Apply to freshly cleansed skin with clean hands or a facial brush
Apply the mask to the whole face and neck
Leave on for 20-1 hour
Rinse with warm water, no cleanser
Follow up with your favorite natural skincare routine
Use 1-2x per week for the best results
Turmeric does an excellent job at removing stains on the skin (and even teeth) but it also can stain your clothes and skin, go figure! Make sure to wear an old t-shirt to avoid stains. If your skin is fair you will want to follow up with your favorite facial oil after rinsing the mask. Massage it into your skin well and wipe clean to remove any excess turmeric from the skin. Voila! You should not have any turmeric left on your skin.
Enjoy your healthy and glowing skin! I really hope you enjoy this mask and make it part of your regular beauty routine. It is an incredibly effective way to maintain the health of your skin and protect its integrity. GLOW GIRL!
