Yes, honey is sweet on our french toasts and makes our cuppa tea sweeter and better, always. But honey is no just sweet on the bread! Honey is sweet on the skin!
Some prefer to use raw honey in their skin care routine or mix honey with wash-off masks or moisturizers they own or some prefer to find beauty products that include honey or ingredients that are closely tied to honey, for instance, propolis and royal jelly. No matter how honey is added into your skin care routine, we can all agree that honey is no stranger when it comes to skin care and the hype is real!
When it comes to the skin, one of the most well known trait of honey is its hydrating effect for the dry skin. But, there are more to the skin benefits of honey. Honey is packed with components beneficial for the skin in many different aspects and can be used both topically on the entire face or for specific affected area.
– a great antibacterial ingredient to treat troubled areas or even acne.
– an abundant source of antioxidants to prevent skin damage, skin aging and lost of skin’s elasticity.
– emollient thus helps seal moisture into the skin keeping skin hydrated.
– a clarifying ingredient that helps with pore care and prevents blackheads.
– great to remove dead skin cells off from the skin when used as face masks.
– significant in brightening overall skin complexion and fading pigmentation.
Thanks to these amazing benefits of honey, there is an overflow of skin care products with honey as their main ingredient. That is why, the brand I’m From, known to create wide range of skin care products with natural ingredients (such as rice, ginseng, mugwort and so on) decided to create their own unique formulation for better skin experience!
They combined 7 active ingredients: honey, black bee propolis, royal jelly, bee venom, tumeric, bee pollen, and cinnamon and named it the “Honey Glow Queen (Honey Complex)”. This honey complex is designed to offer rich moisture and powerful antioxdiant onto the skin.
This Honey Serum squeezes out as a honey-like gooey texture which glides on to the skin smoothly and easily. This serum is meant to enhance elasticity, prevent fine lines and add a nice moisture layer onto the skin. When used before makeup, the serum will help you present a glowy and glossy look!
This Honey Glow Cream, unlike many honey cream products out there has a smooth and silky texture. The cream glides onto the skin easily and also absorbs effectively. The layer of this Glow Cream will add a natural glow just like the name implies but also strengthen your skin barrier while balancing the water-oil ratio of your skin.
“I was never a fan of honey on the skin until I met this honey duo!”
When I think of honey, words like ‘sticky, heavy, too oily’ were the first to pop in my mind. But it was when I had the chance to test out the new I’m From Honey Serum and Honey Glow Cream that I changed my whole perception about adding honey into my routine! I realized that honey doesn’t have to be uncomfortable! I’ve never met honey skin care products with such light & bouncy texture! – Wendy, Assistant Manager at Wishtrend
“My skin started glowing again!
Now that the weather is getting drier and colder in Korea, I had to create a new routine to keep skin hydrated, healthy and glowing! Then with the addition of these two new honey products from I’m From, I’ve found the solution! Love how it feels on my skin and love how it not only hydrates the layers of the skin but also leaves a bouncy coat over to help with moisture retention. Glad that I don’t have to worry about my makeup going cakey this winter! – Gina, Contents Media Lab Staff at Wishtrend
