A moisturiser is a great way to nourish and make your face feel fully hydrated because it gives your skin the chance to properly absorb and lock in the special beneficial compounds of UMF™ Mānuka honey. Not to mention the natural aromas which can make you feel calm and relaxed. You can create your Mānuka honey moisturiser by following these easy steps.
Top tip: If you’re wondering where to buy beeswax, you’ll find plenty of stockists and retailers online. Also keep in mind that your moisturiser will stay fresh for 3 – 4 months.
Exfoliating your skin regularly can leave your skin looking brighter and more vibrant while it also helps to reduce pimples by unclogging pores. But good quality exfoliators can sometimes be expensive, which is why making your own with a few natural ingredients could be incredibly rewarding. This coffee and Manuka honey body scrub will leave you feeling fresher than ever, revitalising your skin with the many natural health benefits of pure New Zealand UMF Manuka honey.
Top tip: Avoid using the scrub on your face as facial skin is more sensitive to irritation than your body. Also, because a coffee scrub is harsher than an everyday soap, try not to use more than twice per week.
Packed with the antioxidant benefits of Comvita UMF Manuka honey, treating yourself with a Manuka honey face mask a couple of times a week could help your skin fight the free radicals that lead to faster aging. What’s more, the natural moisturising power of Manuka honey will leave your face feeling softer and looking brighter.
Top tip: Applying the mask while in the bath could be great way to minimise any mess. Also, with such a simple recipe, make the mask just before you intend to use it to ensure it’s as fresh as possible.
Your lips are one of the most delicate and sensitive parts of your body which means great care should be taken to remove those annoyingly dreadful dead skins cells that often leave them looking dull and worn. Here’s a Manuka Honey lip scrub that’ll ensure you’ll maintain a naturally vibrant smile without causing damage.
Top tip: To get the consistency of the lip scrub right when adding the coconut oil, aim for a thickness that keeps the exfoliating sugar granules bound together but is also loose enough to apply evenly and massage.
A well-balanced skin pH can help your skin fight microbes and harmful free radicals that speed up the ageing process. At the same time, an unhealthy skin pH leaning towards the alkaline end of the spectrum often causes skin to become dry and wrinkly while a more acidic pH could cause skin to become red and itchy. Fortunately, using a toner could help you keep your skin pH right on balance – which is around the middle of the spectrum at pH 5.5.
Here’s a recipe using the power of Comvita UMF™ 10+ Manuka Honey.
Top tip: The recipe can be kept for up to 30 days in a cool environment, so depending upon how much you use, you can adjust your ingredient quantities proportionately to make an entire month’s worth in one go.
You don’t always know what goes into your face wash when it’s manufactured – especially when they’re produced on a mass scale. The problem is, using the wrong facewash can send your skin pH out of balance and contribute to dry skin and other skin irritations.
This Manuka honey face wash recipe has been designed to put some purity, simplicity, and peace of mind back into your daily cleansing routine.
Top tip: There are no preservatives in your natural Manuka Honey facewash, so avoid making large batches to ensure the freshness and quality of your wash is never compromised by lengthy storage.
The natural properties of Manuka honey can treat your hair in many ways when applied topically, from adding shine and moisture and building strength to maintaining a healthy clean scalp free from dirt and grease. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities of Manuka honey also have the potential to relieve you from hair and scalp-related conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
So, here’s how to do it with this simple shampoo recipe using Comvita UMF™ 10+ Manuka Honey.
Top tip: There could be many natural benefits of using tea tree essential oil in your hair in addition to UMF Manuka honey, but for your second essential oil, feel free to experiment with different aromas until you find the one that’s right for you. Beauty products don’t have to cost the earth if you make them yourself – all it takes is a little know-how.
With these recipes, you can be sure you’re treating your skin with the best that nature has to offer without the artificial additives and expense of many shop-bought beauty products
