At Nature’s Gold we are clearly advocates for using Manuka Honey on the skin to help improve our skin’s health, and also accelerate the healing of dry skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis and rosacea. We were recently honored to have Amanda Foxon-Hill give us a little insight into her research and beliefs on why Manuka Honey is so great for the skin. She makes a few really great points about the good bacteria in our bodies, and how it is just as important externally on your skin as it is internally for your gut health.
Excerpt from Amanda’s article:
‘Our good bacteria is part of our first line of defense from external challengers, acting like little soldiers for our skin, the good bacteria challenges anything that attempts to breach our defences thus maintaining barrier integrity and strength. Scientists have discovered that improving the skin microbiota (including the good bacteria) either through improving digestive health or applying microbe friendly products to the skin helps to prevent infection and improves the appearance of skin in conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and acne.’
Manuka Honey is often referred to as a prebiotic, which basically means ‘good bacteria’, so it plays a major role in reminding our skin to balance its health with good bacteria over bad bacteria.
When it comes to dry skin conditions like Eczema and Dermatits, there is no ‘cure’ per say, so it is exciting to see that Scientists are being given the opportunity to research the benefits of Manuka Honey for skin conditions, and maybe one day we could find the right formula for using Manuka Honey to cure some skin conditions. We are hopeful!
In the meantime, we do know that many people have found success in controlling their skin concerns, and improving their skins health using Manuka Honey. And the best part? Manuka Honey is a raw, natural ingredient. So, what have you got to lose? Give it a try! We recommend starting out with our best-value Turbo Pack.
