Honey not offers incredible natural antimicrobial, antioxidant, and hygroscopic properties for our body and health but also contains antioxidants. Its powerful healing attributes have long been used for thousands of years and is known to promote healing for cuts, cure ailments and diseases, and correct health disorders for generations after generations.
Honey has a hygroscopic nature, which means when exposed to air; it naturally absorbs moisture in from the air. It helps keep skin hydrated, fresh and prevents drying. Thus, some people call honey a natural “humectant” as it attracts and retains moisture leaving skin soft and supple and is great for hydrating the lines around the lips.
Honey is antibacterial and can be used to help treat minor acne by attacking the bacteria that cause the outbreaks while moisturizing the skin to aid rejuvenation. Researchers began to document the healing properties of honey in the early part of the 20th century. This ceased with the development of antibiotics but recently the development of resistance to antibiotics has led to a resurgence of interest into the healing properties of honey.
Honey is antimicrobial and prevents the growth of certain bacteria. It contains an enzyme that produces hydrogen peroxide which is believed to be the main reason for the antimicrobial activity of honey. As such, honey is a useful treatment for wounds and scalds. Cuts, abrasions and scalds can be covered in honey to prevent bacteria from entering the wound and promote healing. So if your lips are chapped and sore the honey should provide relief and protection.
Honey contains natural antioxidant properties that can destroy biologically destructive chemical agents which have been linked to many diseases such as cancer. Not only can honey’s antioxidants help to eliminate free radicals in the body, they are also part of the nutrient supply for growth of new tissue known to keep skin youthful smooth and soft.
