On our blog, we talk about how to find the best manuka honey for your skin and what the best manuka honey is for your face.
Here, we’ll talk about some more specific ways to use the word.
Most of the time, we suggest using honey with a high UMFTM rating for skin care. You can get the best results with anything from UMFTM 15+ to UMFTM 26+.
Let’s get started.
How to Use Manuka Honey for Acne in 4 Ways
1. Cleanser For Zits
Did you know that when manuka honey is mixed with water, it loses some of its high sugar content and keeps its antibacterial properties?
That means you can use it as a daily acne wash for less money.
“Manuka honey has a low pH between 3.2 and 4.5, which is good for the skin because it helps it heal and stay in balance. It can help get rid of dead skin cells and, if it really is anti-inflammatory, it can help reduce swelling and redness. It is also a natural humectant, which means that it draws moisture to the skin and keeps it there, giving the skin a natural, dewy glow.
2. Acne Mask
We have a recipe for making an acne mask with manuka honey and turmeric.
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, and it does a great job of cleaning and purifying the skin, giving it a healthy, bright glow.
“When you mix the strong antibacterial properties of New Zealand Manuka Honey with the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric, you get a healthy solution that can heal acne, redness, scars, and other skin problems. It is the best skin treatment you can put on your skin, and everyone is talking about it!”
With just two natural ingredients mixed in the right way and used twice a week as part of your skin care routine, you might be able to get rid of acne.
3. Take Care Of Your Acne
You can clean and soak your face, but you can also focus on specific spots and areas. Again, turmeric and manuka honey go very well together.
“We recommend using Manuka Honey UMFTM 10+ or higher because it has a higher concentration of MGO and is said to be more effective against harmful bacteria. Use UMFTM 15+, UMFTM 20+, or UMFTM 24+ Manuka honey for a stronger and more effective treatment.”
4. Reduce Acne Scarring
No matter what you do to get rid of your acne, you don’t want a record of it to stick around! Scarring can be lessened, which is good news.
“When we get hurt, our bodies take time to fix the broken parts, which leaves scars. Scars heal best when you give them time and don’t do anything to make them worse. Scars are often red, dry, and itchy. Manuka honey is an emollient, which means it keeps the skin’s moisture in and keeps it safe. Honey may ease pain and stop people from wanting to scratch scars by keeping the affected areas moist and flexible.
