Skin Health: The Power of Manuka Honey
What makes Manuka honey so special?
Manuka honey is native to New Zealand and contains potent antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that make it far more superior than regular honey. Cultivated by mother nature, it is one of the most unique and beneficial forms of honey in the world.
Traditionally Manuka honey has been used for wound healing. It prevents microbial infections while forming a moist and protective barrier over the infected area. With this level of support, it also enables tissue regeneration, reduces pain, assists with oral health, soothes a sore throat and aids digestive system function.
So why do we love Manuka honey so much here at Tama?
Manuka honey has so many benefits on our skin health. When it's topically applied to the skin it acts as a natural exfoliant, removing dead skin cells, unclogging pores and leaving the skin clear and rejuvenated.
Manuka honey naturally preserves moisture, drawing moisture into the skins surface and retaining it there for natural hydration.
As mentioned above, the healing properties of Manuka honey don't stop at wound healing. Manuka honey can assist with acne, blemishes and reducing redness thanks to it's soothing anti-inflammatory properties.
If there was a magic potion to assist with anti-ageing, Manuka honey is it!
Due to it's live enzymes, nutrients and antioxidant properties, Manuka honey has been shown to promote the structural growth of collagen, neutralise free radical damage, and regenerate tissues, leaving the skin glowing and youthful.
Here at Tama Wellness, we can't get enough of Manuka honey, so much so, we use it in both our Ritual & Renewal facials (upon request). Supplied by the team at Activist, their Manuka honey is wildcrafted in small batches in New Zealand. We love this husband & wife team who understand the value of sustainable and ethical practices. You can also purchase their Manuka Honey Mask, Manuka Oil & Green Botanical Serum directly from us.
