Healing Properties of Honey

When applied to the skin, honey has many components that promote skin health. It has an anti-inflammatory effect that makes it useful for fighting skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis. Honey fights skin infections due to its antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Honey is a natural humectant and moisturizer, containing amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals beneficial for fighting free radicals. Additionally, honey can be effective in treating ulcers, bed sores, burns, skin sores, skin inflammation, and healing wounds that don’t respond to antibiotics.
