Why You Should use Manuka Honey for Rosacea
If you suffer from rosacea, you’ll be happy to know that there are readily-available ways to treat this condition naturally – such as applying manuka honey for rosacea products on the affected area. Read on to learn why the manuka honey rosacea treatment may be perfect for you!
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is an uncomfortable skin condition that causes skin to appear red and inflamed. Typically, it appears on your cheeks and nose but it can also spread to forehead, back, chest, ears, and in severe cases, even eyelids. Those with fair skin tend to be more prone to contacting rosacea and it is a condition that becomes more common with age.
Though the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, things such as extreme weather conditions, stress, exposure to sunlight, and certain foods and drinks have been identified as possible triggers.
Because chemical products have a tendency to dry out skin and subsequently worsen the symptoms, it’s best to use products with natural ingredients such as manuka honey for rosacea. Fortunately, it’s a product that can be applied from the comfort of your home.
What Makes Manuka Honey Unique?
Native to New Zealand, Manuka Honey has traditionally been used for treating acne, soothing sore throats, and healing wounds. Additionally, it’s also been known to improve digestive problems.
Compared to regular forms of honey, Manuka Honey has 1000x more methylglyoxal, making it antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. In other words, it’s an ideal natural remedy for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, burns, scars, acne and, of course, rosacea.
Perhaps the most important benefit of manuka honey is that because it’s completely organic, it’s impossible for the body to develop a resistance to it. This makes it the preferred option to steroid-based treatments.
How to use Manuka Honey Rosacea Treatment
As mentioned earlier, treatments to soothe rosacea with manuka honey can be applied at home. We love this Organic Manuka Skin Soothing Cream for its six all natural and pure ingredients: organic olive oil, organic beeswax, filtered water, grapeseed oil, and manuka honey with manuka oil extract. As the saying goes, sometimes less really is more!
Combined with organic tree nut-free oils and beeswax, our organic Manuka honey has no added preservatives or fragrances. The rich and creamy balm provides soothing relief and calms even the most irritated skin without any burning or stinging – so don’t be afraid to apply it anywhere on your body, including the delicate parts like eyes and lips.
The cream is so gentle that it’s a perfect solution for babies suffering from rosacea, eczema, or diaper rash as well. Kids also love the soft, buttery texture (in fact, adults do too!)
