Why honey is a must-have beauty remedy  The benefits of this natural ingredient for skincare (and beyond)

Nicknamed the "golden liquid" for its many positive effects on skin health, honey is a true beauty must-have. Thank you to its nutritional, moisturizing and healing properties, as well as its high content of antioxidants and vitamins, it contributes significantly to tissue repair and the prevention of signs of aging on the face by increasing the firmness of the epidermis, thus delaying the signs of aging. It is also very effective against dry skin, immediately gives the face more radiance and has a good healing and antibacterial effect.

But not all honey is the same. Raw honey, obtained directly from the comb, contains bee pollen, antioxidants and nutrients that are lost during the pasteurization to which honey is subjected in the supermarket. Then there is royal jelly, which is produced by bees to feed the queen bee and therefore contains even more natural nutrients.

As a natural humectant, raw honey is highly valued in skin care. Among other things, it can help build collagen, the key to youthful skin. And although honey is suitable for all skin types, unprocessed honey is particularly useful for people suffering from inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. Because of its moisturizing, healing and antibacterial properties, it can be a simple but effective addition to skincare regimens. Mix a little water with honey for a gentle facial cleanser and non-abrasive exfoliant, but watch for keywords on the label like "raw" and "unprocessed"

Royal jelly, on the other hand, counteracts skin aging because of the flavonoids it contains. It also helps protect our skin from stress and factors like pollution and UV rays. The vitamins and amino acids contained in it form a perfect protective barrier against external influences, which has a positive effect on the moisture content and radiance of the skin. Royal jelly is therefore excellent for facial care, as it can revitalize the cells and make the skin soft and radiant. Not surprisingly, it is often found in creams and masks, but it can also be used to strengthen nails and care for dry lips.

Here are the 5 properties of honey that make it an indispensable part of daily beauty care:


Few people know that honey has anti-aging properties. Thank you to the enzymes it contains, it preserves elasticity and deeply nourishes, tones and regenerates the skin.
