Manuka Doctor Skin Care
I have been recently doing a lot of research into the healing properties of honey for use as skincare. I use honey regularly in my tea, smoothies and cooking and I have always heard amazing feedback about skincare products containing manuka honey. Honey has powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Advocates claim that manuka honey has something that other types of honey don't. Manuka honey is produced from pollen of the manuka tree. It is high in methylglyoxal, which is a chemical that is responsible for its antibacterial activity. Most honey contains a naturally occurring active agent which supports good health but is easily destroyed when exposed to heat. Manuka honey contains an extra active occurring ingredient, which makes it distinct from other honeys.
In the last year I have had a very stressful workload because of uni, and my skin has been suffering from the stress. This is when I decided to start using the Manuka Doctor skincare to give my skin a boost of nutrients and to make it glow again. I find that the products from Manuka Doctor are very gentle on my skin and they don't burn like alot of other products I have used in the past. My skin is very sensitive so its great to have finally found a range of skincare that suits my skin type.
Manuka Doctor Skincare products are produced from New Zealand grown and harvested Manuka honey, Purified Bee Venom (PBVTM) & other synergistic active ingredients. The result is a skincare range that has proven clinical results in counteracting the effects of acne, reducing the appearance of scarring and, of course, a great solution for anti-ageing. What I like about this product is that it is the only product in the world that uses Purified Bee Venom. Bee venom that is not purified can contain contaminants that are included during collection and handling processes.
Some of the benefits of Purified Bee Venom (PBVTM) include:
- Nurtures cell regeneration
- Activates renewal of damaged skin cells
- Scar reducing effect
- Helps collagen formation
- Supports the healing process of acne
- Helps with the elimination and prevention of acne
Some of the nourishing ingredients in the Manuka Doctor skin care range include Bee Venom, Coconut, Manuka Honey, Avocado, Olive Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E.
My favorite products are: Repairing Skin Cream Foaming Cleanser (very gentle on the skin) Hydrating Facial Cleanser Restoring Night Cream Facial Moisturising Lotion
