June 11, 2022
Honey benefits for skin: Honey is one of nature's blessings to man. It is well known to be highly nutritious and healthy, not just for food but also for topical application on the skin.
Interestingly people seek to maintain healthy skin with a smooth, glowing tone. They tend to opt for chemically formulated body creams containing toxins that sometimes have harmful side effects on the skin and other body organs.
Hydroquinone is one of these toxic chemicals found in many skin-lightening creams. It causes ochronosis, a skin disease associated with skin cancer and damage to organs such as the lung and kidneys.
In the last ten years, skin cancer has increased exponentially by 44% annually in the U.S. alone. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation statistics, about one in every three cases of cancer diagnosed is skin cancer. These rising figures coincide with the growing use of toxic chemicals in skincare products.
Raw honey is one of nature's secrets to maintaining good skin health, but before we delve into its benefits, let's take a closer look at our skin.
The Human SkinThe skin is the human body's largest organ, composed of different layers of cells packed together to form protective tissues. The first outermost layer, which we can all see, is called the epidermis. This rugged, elastic and waterproof layer serves as a protective shield against microorganisms in the surrounding environment, and it gives us our distinctive skin tones.
The second layer beneath the epidermis is made up of tough connective tissues and is called the dermis. The hair follicles, nerve endings, sweat and oil glands, and blood vessels are situated. It plays a vital role in thermoregulation - maintaining a steady body temperature in cold or hot conditions - and enabling the sensation of pain, heat and pressure.
The innermost layer is the subcutaneous layer, mainly composed of fat and connective tissues. The blood vessels lie to help nourish the skin and insulate internal organs from shock and temperature changes.
