There’s an age-old adage that claims you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, but we can’t vouch for it. If you’re in want of collecting a jarful of sticky flies, by all means—but we do know one thing honey attracts for sure: moisture.
Honey’s skincare benefits are plenty: this ingredient is full of natural antioxidants and is known to help boost moisture and radiance in depleted skin, which is why it’s been a favorite for those with dull or dehydrated complexions. Take Honey Moisturizer, for example, which was made to leave your skin soft, supple, and smooth. A lush blend of Honey and an antioxidant-rich oil protect against moisture loss and bring out the dewiness within. (We heard through the grapevine that Kyle Jenner starts her mornings with this Mario Badescu moisturizer.)
Another Honey-infused favorite: Almond & Honey Face Scrub, a delicious, creamy scrub that makes every exfoliating session a treat. A unique base of finely ground Almonds, Cornmeal, and Kaolin buffs away dulling surface impurities and dead skin cells as Honey and Sweet Almond Oil deeply nourish skin—making it the perfect scrub for dry or sensitive skin.
Honey Extract is also a key ingredient in other radiance-boosting products: It’s found in Revitalin Moisturizer to help revitalize depleted skin, Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex to further unveil a brighter, more even-looking complexion, and Skin Renewal Complex to deeply moisturize and pamper skin.
