We all know that manuka honey tastes amazing drizzled over our morning porridge, on toast or stirred into our favourite tea – but have you ever thought of putting it on your skin?

As it turns out, Raw Manuka Honey is a health superstar not only in your diet but in your skincare routine as well. This superfood has been used a moisturiser from as far back as ancient times and for good reason: its packed with nutrients, vitamins and amino acids and contains powerful anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties (Sign us up!)

Manuka Doctor is setting the gold standard with their range of honey infused skin products aimed at a wide variety of skin conditions including dryness, fine lines and even acne. The anti-inflammatory properties of Manuka make it the perfect product for reducing redness and healing inflamed dry skin. Not only this, but Manuka gets rid of nasty bacteria in the skin by oxygenating and clearing the pores, making it an incredible remedy for acne-prone, oily skin.

Loved by celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Kourtney Kardashian for its natural, youth-boosting properties, Manuka Doctor is the ultimate product to pamper your skin. We love to use their honey as a mask, simply apply a thin layer to cleansed skin and leave for 15-20 minutes. Gently wipe off with warm water, then splash your face with cold water to close the pores.
