So the beauty buzz word for 2017 is Manuka. It’s THE ingredient that we are going to hear a lot about in the forthcoming months. Its properties are just amazing and it really is the wonder cure for our skin. Its the new gold, frankincense and myrrh for the beauty industry and its the best gift we could ever give our skin. Mother nature always knows best.
Gathered by very busy bees from the nectar of the Manuka tree, native to New Zealand, this golden elixir is not only good enough to eat but its also the perfect remedy for our skin. Manuka contains a natural antimicrobial which stimulates wound healing making it especially good for problem skin that is prone to break outs. It also contains antibacterial properties and contains antioxidants that neutralise free radicals which are responsible for skin damage and scar tissue.
And the list goes on, it also works as a humectant which basically means drawing moisture to the skin making it hydrating, moisturizing and healing. What’s not to love?!
I am a massive advocate of natural health and beauty. So for the past month I have been testing out the Wild Fern’s Manuka Honey Radiance Renewal Facial Serum and I am seriously impressed with the results. I use it in the morning on cleansed skin and before my daily application of moisturiser. I can already see the results, an even skin tone, reduced redness and clearer looking skin and its so natural its practically good enough to eat. Contrary to what you might think from the word ‘honey’ this product doesn’t leave a sticky residue. It glides on and is absorbed quickly. I am a total convert.
I have gathered below for you some of the best manuka products out there. If it’s good enough for Kourtney Kardashian it’s good enough for you….
