How is Manuka Honey Good for Skin Care ?

Manuka honey is rich in minerals and vitamins and is also antioxidant and helps recover the moisture of your skin.


Manuka honey also has anti-inflammatory properties and makes it beneficial for problem skin.

Manuka honey does not only nourish, but it also heals.

All these benefits make Manuka honey a perfect ingredient in cosmetics as it serves so beauty products are gentle on your skin.

I dared a few times and drizzled raw manuka honey directly from the jar onto my face, and also on my hair.

The results are pretty good – however, I admit it can be messy, though hey, tasting the honey when it trickles on your fingers or when it comes close to your lips is not bad at all, yummy!

Warning! Certainly, you should not use any of these products if you are allergic to honey.

  1. Nice, this face cream will be great for my very oily face skin. Yes I am not a girl but I can care for my skin thank you. I have dry and oily skin on my face and reading about these products on this article is actually good for me because this is what I need to resolve this problem. I am okay with your explanation of how each item works and how it can help me attain a glowing skin. My boo will Alayne very pleased when I gather this article and she learns about these amazing products. 

    1. Hi, natural creams and oils are good for everyone and also perfect for combination skin, as the majority of products are okay for all skin types. Glad you liked the products and thank you for writing. 

  2. I have been looking for something that can work on my dry, flaky skin like a mask.  I have no idea which products to use.  You seem to know a lot about these products from the article I read and happy I found someone with so much knowledge.  May I ask which you prefer for flaky and dry skin regarding the mask or mud?  Antipodes Mask or the Rotoria Mud.  Which do you think would work better for my issues?  I really appreciate all the information on your site and now have narrowed it down to two.  Thank you and look forward to your thoughts.

    1. Hi Dorri, both products are good but if you have flaky skin I´d go for the Antipodes as the Roturua mud is more for deep cleansing and detox. Also if you are not used to mud it can dry up your face a little when using it, although you can always apply a moisturiser after. 

      Let me know how it goes. Thank you for writing. 

  3. I love the way you describe the product just squirted on you and into your hair.  I can imagine the luxury and fun.  Honey has been used for millennia for treating all kinds of conditions so I can only think how good it would be for your skin and hair, too.  I especially liked the Wild Ferns Lanolin, Manuka Honey and Royal Jelly Night Cream as I’m sure it would be extremely softening to the skin.

    1. Hi, I agree, the Wild Ferns Lanolin, Manuka Honey and Royal Jelly Night Cream is a lovely product with some great ingredients in it. I love testing raw products on myself and see what comes out, and honey is a staple food for me. Thank you for writing.

  4. I love everything related to honey. I take bee pollen for my allergy, I eat honey with my cheese and I also eat and do a mask of Royal Jelly for health benefit and I even take some of the Manuka honey too 🙂 However, I need some practicalities in my life this is why these facial lotions come in handy 🙂 Thank you so much for your review! Wild Ferns Lanolin, Manuka Honey, and Royal Jelly Night Cream a try because it has royal jelly in it 🙂 I love how my skin is after I apply royal jelly 🙂 

    1. Hi, many thanks for sharing your experience in using Royal Jelly. I am of the same opinion, I love to use raw products for when I can dedicate more time to my beauty rituals; however I also want to have my natural creams handy to use on a daily basis. the Wild Ferns Lanolin, Manuka Honey, and Royal Jelly Night Cream is a favourite of many. I´m sure you will like it. Good day. 

  5. Hi, Marissa,

    Thank you for your presentation of these products.

    It seems like may of the creams that are beneficial have a moisturizing component to them. I know that dry, cracked skin can be quite uncomfortable.

    Over time, the lack of moisture can contribute to that dryness.

    One of the things I have begun to notice in recent years is that of dark spots occurring where there had been no previous problem. Many of the products that are reported to help with this condition dcontain statements about the moisturizing properties they include.

    I see that you have personal experience with some of these. I would be interested to hear what others say also.


    1. Hi Randy, I believe you are referring to pigmentation that comes along after sun exposure and with ageing, since you mention you never suffered of acne. Manuka honey is perfect to lighten the dark spots. Try using the Dr Organic Manuka Honey Rescue Cream, as it is safe to use frequently.  Thank you for writing and have a nice day. 

  6. Hello Marisa,
    Thank you for this review, I have heard of the highly medicinal Maruka honey and its effect on cough and other intestinal issues, now I Know again it works on the skin. I will go with the antipodes Aura Manuka, like you pointed out it has a deep cleansing ability and it is also anti-ageing.

    1. Hi, great choice, Antipodes Aura Manuka is gentle on the skin but does a goood deep cleansing job. Thank you for writing. 

  7. Hi! I really enjoyed reading your articles, especially the ones about breathing techniques. I do my exercise yoga every morning and I forget to add the breathing technique. I tried the Anuloma Viloma Pranayam. Your article about Manuka honey and the products caught my eye, I have never heard about Manuka honey. I am always on the search for natural and organic products. The beauty industry is poorly monitored that is they can use words like green, natural organic without having to prove anything hence I am always on the search and read a lot.  I did not know Rose water can be used for the treatment of dry eyes, I use it to refresh in the summer and spray it on my face and neck. You have good tips, advice, and solution on quite a few topics that blend together making the reader want to know more. Thank you.  I will surely continue visiting your very well informative site. 

    1. Hi Patricia, many thanks for writing and I am glad you like the information. I suggest you include breathing with your yoga exercise as you will find them so beneficial. When I´m short of time I prefer doing only breathing, as I find it relaxes you and gives you energy at the same time. Have a great day.

  8. very interesting nice and I like the natural product that are being made. do they make products for men because this sounds like it would make your skin feel and look great, but I do think some of the products would not be bad for the male. thank you for all of the great info my wife will definitely love this site

    1. Hi, Manuka products are good for both male and female. Sometimes people ask me that since I dedicated my site to anti ageing for women, however all products are natural and can be used by everybody. Thank you for writing and for sharing with your wife. 

  9. I have not used any of these Manuka honey face products but I find Dr Organic Manuka Honey Rescue Cream as most suitable for me. My skin is sensitive and it is useful as after sun care treatment.

    Our face needs the utmost care that it deserves and the choice of the best product to make it glow is essential.

    Thanks for the comprehensive review.


    1. Hi, thanks for writing. You have spotted a very good product. Manuka honey products are effective and soft on the skin, thus suitable for sensitive skin. 

  10. I have to say that I love honey products. All kinds of them. Sometimes I use pure honey for some treatments. 
    I haven’t heard for Manuka but I read through and it looks very interesting. I like to use natural products, and it’s amazing how you can see or better said feel the results sometimes even after the first use. 

    I feel that some of these would help my oily/dry skin or how they call it the T-zone. 

    Since you are in this industry, have you heard about something that will help remove the marks from the Sun? I would appreciate your advice. So it’s not that I have normal freckles, I actually got a lot of them at first and now they turned into a weird “mask” on some parts of my face. 

    One doctor told me just to stay away from the Sun and that nothing can help me and I don’t believe in that.

    1. Hi Sunny, thank you for writing. Yes, I have to admit I am a big fan of Manuka honey and I believe in it as I tried several products and even pure raw Manuka honey alone and it does work on me. 

      Check out the Antipodes Organic Aura Manuka Honey Mask for your blemishes. It will not remove the freckles completely, however the mask is smooth on the skin and it will give you an even tone. You can use this 2-3 times a week. Also if you have an aloe vera plant, use its gel on your face especially after being in the sun as it is known to reduce redness and skin pigmentation. 

  11. Hi Marisa

    I think that these products should be used by both sexes, as long as they work I don´t know why not. Honey has been known for centuries for its antiseptic properties, especially from stopping wounds from getting infected. I think Manuka honey is one of the best and using it as part of your beauty regime must be highly recommended. I wonder if honey can be used for those who have very oily skin. Does the Manuka honey have any effect on if you suffer from acne?

    As long as the scent of the honey does not attract bees, I am game.

    Thank you


    1. Hi Antonio, many thanks for writing. Manuka honey is good to treat acne due to its anti inflammatory properties. I suggest you start with a small area in case you are allergic.
