Manuka Honey is Rich in antioxidants, which improves the skins appearance of premature aging signs caused by free radical damage. It balances your skin's pH level and help slough away dead cell debris to keep your skin clean. Its anti-inflammatory effect can decrease local inflammation caused by acne. As an antibacterial, Manuka honey leaves fewer bacteria to infect pores and cause acne. All types of honey have antibacterial properties, thanks to their high sugar content and low pH. Honey also contains hydrogen peroxide, a known disinfectant. But manuka honey takes all these factors to the next level with an antimicrobial compound called methylglyoxal (it’s even measured via what’s called the Unique Manuka Factor, or UMF). All of these factors combine to make manuka honey great for acne-prone skin, since one of the main causes of acne is bacteria. The #1 cause of aging, after exposure to the sun, is inflammation, and manuka honey is highly anti-inflammatory.
