Manuka Honey and Wrinkles

The awareness of active Manuka honey being a respectable medicine is increasing. Wounds heal faster, less scarring occurs, infections get cured, stomach relief is offered, and heartburn can be treated. Just to name a few benefits. But how about cosmetic uses? Does Manuka honey help diminish wrinkles and fine lines?

Even in historical times mankind knew about honey being a great skin product. Being a humectant, it attracts and retains moisture thus soothing and nourishing the skin. Regular use of honey was thought to keep the skin juvenile, radiant and diminish wrinkle formation

Ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra also was aware of this skin care benefits of honey. Laborants now know that the milk and honey baths she took really could have rejuvenated her skin because of honey's ability to retain and absorb moisture helping the skin stay hydrated and fresh. It is also thought honey supports the skin's ability to refresh depleted skin making it the ideal anti aging agent.

What we do know for sure is that exposure of the skin to sun radiation is one of the major causes of wrinkles. The presence of vitamins and antioxidants in honey and its antimicrobial properties are said to help protect the skin from the ultraviolet sun rays.

Manuka Honey is thought to improve the skin's elasticity, repair damaged skin and regenerate new skin growth that is rich in collagen fibers and elastin. (Studies on experimental wounds in animals have demonstrated that topically applied honey stimulates collagen synthesis and improves collagen strength. Source)

Although there isn't much research done on the cosmetic benefits of honey it might be one of the best natural anti wrinkle products. At least for Cleopatra it was.

one effective solution to facial problems due to aging is by undergoing botox injection but it requires your doctors approval..cuz it might cause problems if you are not fit for it..and another alternative way is by using honey which is rich in collagen fibers and elastin..
