For centuries, honey has been the magic potion for our health and skin, and it’s rightly so due to its nutrient rich properties. While used as a natural substitute for sugar and as an instant energy booster, its rich source of antioxidants, flavonoids and antibacterial properties keep your skin healthy and clean.

Honey is also a humectant which means it draws moisture to keep your skin moist, hence it’s an ingredient that is found in many skincare products. Aside from moisturising your skin, honey in skincare acts as a cleanser, calms inflammation, lightens scars, anti-ageing agent and brightens your skin’s complexion.

Here’s a look at skincare products that use honey as its key ingredient.
