Honey to the Bee

Add something sweet to your beauty routine with these honey picks

Beauty products infused with honey have many antibacterial properties which can help with antiageing and skin healing. Comvita’s Medicare range is made using medical-grade honey such as that used in some US hospitals and is especially helpful for people with dry skin or eczema. Another good thing about raw honey: its eternal shelf life, meaning it will never go off.
