Here’s why it’s not actually insane to rub honey on your face

Written by

From the cultivation of the Beauty Blender to learning how to cover your dark circles with red lipstick, there are plenty of easy and cost-effective tricks you can try to achieve that Beyoncé glow. We'll spend hours hunting down the best products at beauty supply stores in NYC, but guess what? You can find the hottest skincare trend at your local grocery store right now! 

We asked co-founder Ali Hynes from Smith & Brit—a new beauty boutique and spa in Soho—for her juiciest beauty secret and she says, “Manuka honey works wonders when ingested to fight infection, inflammation and boost the immune system due to its strong antibacterial properties. We also recommend applying it topically to your face and body to improve a wide range of skin concerns such as Rosacea, psoriasis, acne, scarring, dull and dry skin.”

There you have it, folks. Head to the nearest Whole Foods and grab a jar of Manuka Honey A.S.A.P. (You won't find it at Sephora, as far as we know).
