It’s true, the world is obsessed with face masks! In a recent report on the top beauty-related searches around the globe, “face mask” came out on top. Women the world over have an urge to cover their faces in whatever they believe will make them emerge brighter, younger, cleaner, fresher. It’s a tradition that transcends borders.

And despite advances in face mask products, many beauty fanatics still raid the kitchen cupboard for traditional DIY skincare solutions.

In a recent interview with Elle.com, fashion forward Victoria Beckham tells of her go-to ingredients to reduce puffy eyes after a hard day’s work.

"I learned this in LA: you mix Manuka honey with organic oatmeal and egg white. Mix it all together and put it on your face for a few minutes, and it’s amazing. But it’s got to be Manuka honey, not regular honey. And it’s got to be organic oatmeal."

Victoria Beckham Manuka Honey Face Mask

It’s not just Victoria Beckham who won’t use anything BUT Manuka honey! It’s also a firm favourite of Kourtney Kardashian, Katie Piper, Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow to name but a few.

Manuka honey is great for those with blemish prone skin or skin prone to redness, as it can help calm irritation, reduce redness and fight bacteria with its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory properties.

Honey isn’t just known for its antimicrobial activity, honey also creates a moist, healing environment and has the ability to absorb and retain moisture, therefore helping keep skin hydrated. The moisturising effect of Manuka Honey on the skin also helps with elasticity and texture, making it a multi-benefit skincare ingredient.
