Honey Slows Signs of Aging October 05 2014
Well now isn't this great news?!
Part of the aging process is related to the slow depletion of enzymes in the body. Raw honey is one of the few foods to help slow the depletion of enzymes through the ingestion of amylase. Amylase is the enzyme that breaks down sugars and carbohydrates. Amylase can restore damaged skin to give a softer, younger look.
Honey is also a great natural moisturizer for dry and parched skin. It is able to attract and retain moisture, and rebuild the moisture level in the skin without making it oily. Honey provides a calming effect without irritating the skin, and helps replenish necessary skin moisture, especially during the winter months. This is why the golden liquid is such a popular anti aging skin care ingredient in many commercial moisturizing products including cleansers, creams, shampoos, shower gels, and conditioners. And because it's so gentle, it is suitable for sensitive skin and baby care products.
Just another fabulous reason to eat honey everyday!
