The sticky and sweet substance contains rejuvenating properties that will leave your skin feeling nourished, soft and smooth

Commonly drizzled on your yoghurt, in your tea and on top of your waffles, honey has more usage than you think. Honey is great for softening, smoothing and even cleansing the skin.

The benefits of honey includes:

  • Removing excess dirt and bacteria, preventing and treating acne
  • Moisturising
  • Nourishing
  • Clarifying
  • Gentle exfoliation

Choose honey in its raw and non-processed form as this contains the most potent enzymes packed with antioxidants, antibacterial and healing properties. "Raw honey is packed with components beneficial for your skin, especially if you have acne or autoimmune skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis," said Debra Rose Wilson, a holistic healthcare professional at Healthline.

Here are our top six honey-infused products for the face and body:
