FAQs

  • How To Use Manuka Honey for Skin?

    You can create a hydrating and soothing face mask by mixing Manuka honey with other natural ingredients. Apply the Manuka honey mask to your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, and then rinse it off with warm water. This can help brighten and moisturise your skin.

  • Can Manuka Honey be Used for Oily, Acne-Prone Skin, and Will it Clog Pores?

    When using any product on your skin, there is a potential for clogged pores or adverse reactions, as individual skin reactions can vary. To minimise this risk, apply a small amount of manuka honey to a small area of your skin to check for reactions or breakouts before applying it to your entire face. A thin layer of manuka honey is usually sufficient. Using it as a mask for about 10-15 minutes a few times a week is a common approach.

  • Is Manuka Honey Good for Dry Skin?

    Yes, Manuka honey can be beneficial for dry skin due to its hydrating and soothing properties. It can help alleviate dryness and improve the overall condition of your skin. 

    Manuka honey is a natural humectant, which means it has the ability to attract and retain moisture. When applied to dry skin, it helps draw moisture into the skin, making it softer and more hydrated.

    Manuka honey has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and calm irritated skin. 
    Dry skin often has a compromised skin barrier, which can lead to increased water loss and further dryness. Manuka honey can help strengthen the skin barrier, reducing moisture loss and enhancing the skin's ability to retain hydration.
