The sweetest thing for your skin is honey

Once upon a time, there was a bee, and it was essential to the production of the ingredient we are discussing today: if our bee hadn’t been there, neither would our product. We are talking about honey today, produced by bees after picking up nectar from plants and bringing that to their hives to transform it into that golden, gooey substance we often use in the kitchen, and that is quickly gaining popularity in the world of beauty. What might not be known to all is that something extraordinary happens during the honey-making process: the color, scent and properties of honey are all determined by where the nectar comes from, so as a beauty treatment, honey will transfer all those wonderful medical benefits from the plants and herbs right onto your skin.


Honey is an excellent moisturizer, and when used in shower gels and bath products, it helps cleanse the skin in depth, thanks to its antibacterial properties. It can also be used on the delicate skin of your face, and it can add a protective component to lip balms and detergents. It has also been used as an ointment for the past 2000 years thanks to its antiseptic properties, and it is a natural moistener, meaning it attracts and holds moisture, making it excellent for keeping optimal levels of moisture in your skin. Its antibacterial properties are essential for fighting impurities, as they help you block the spreading of damaging bacteria on your skin.

If we mentioned honey in the context of scents, you would probably imagine that it is part of the family of tasty gourmand notes. This is actually not the case, though, as it turns out it belongs to the scent family of animal fragrances, like musk and amber. This is because it is often synthetic, recreated in a lab by joining beeswax and other components from honey. A nose will be able to use robinia, if he or she wants to create a honey with flowery notes, or pine, if they want to get closer to the scent of honeydew. In the science of scent, honey is a relaxing, balancing note that helps construct warm, rich compositions – such as gourmand perfumes.

We aren’t going to mention gold. When talking cosmetics, honey is a synonym for delicate, so, close your eyes and imagine a wonderful glow. It’s pretty likely that the products that give you the glow you have in mind right now contain honey in their formula! Honey is very common in illuminating sticks, but it is also excellent when contained in lipsticks, helping them dehydrate your lips a little less. Since the color of honey brings to mind the way healthy tan skin would look, it can also be the perfect scent note of some self-tanning lotions, as well as the name of some shades of foundation.
