3 Ways to Treat Acne with Manuka Honey

Manuka honey is a miracle worker when it comes to your skin. Whether you suffer from dryness, redness or clogged pores Manuka honey can treat it all!

Manuka honey is highly antibacterial, and can help to kill acne-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin. It is also packed full of natural enzymes, which work to exfoliate your skin by breaking down dead skin cells, revealing smoother and brighter skin. This helps reduce post-acne pigmentation whilst soothing and hydrating the skin. As a natural humectant due it its sugar component, Manuka honey helps to draw in and retain moisture in the skin, keeping you hydrated all day long!

In terms of MGO levels for treating acne, 120+ MGO is suitable for mild cases of acne and dry skin. The higher the MGO level, the more potent the properties within will become. We recommend using 300+ MGO and above to treat more severe cases of acne.
