Beeswax- Skin Care Secret

Beeswax- Skin Care Secret

 

Beeswax is a natural substance made by honeybees that has been used since ancient times for its incredible benefits. Ancient Egyptian and Roman cultures used beeswax in their natural skin and beauty products. Today, it is a relatively unknown beauty secret that can improve your skin care routine!

Beeswax is naturally moisturizing and contains vitamin A, which hydrates the skin without clogging pores. It is also used in the treatment of skin conditions such as eczema, diaper rash, dermatitis and psoriasis. It is a great ingredient to add to natural salves and lotions. Just combine beeswax with a carrier oil such as olive or almond oil to treat dry skin!

Beeswax also has anti-aging properties. It has been researched to help the body produce collagen. Collagen is a protein in your body that makes up your connective tissues. As we age, this protein naturally weakens. Beeswax, with it’s high content of vitamin A, helps the skin retain is youthful appearance. Applying beeswax to stretch marks and scars can also improve the appearance of these blemishes.

Other Benefits of Beeswax-

 

1-      Natural Remedies. The Korean Journal of Internal Medicine performed a 24 week study that revealed beeswax  normalized liver function and improved symptoms of fatty liver in the test subjects. When mixed with honey it has also been used as a treatment for candida. Beeswax can be used to naturally lower cholesterol levels as well. (Do not start or stop any substance without first contacting your medical provider) 

2-      Anti-inflammatory. Beeswax has been researched to help ease inflammation and joint pain in patients with arthritis and joint stiffness/pain. It is an added ingredient in many topical creams to ease pain and discomfort.

3-      Acne Treatment.  Due to its rich vitamin A content and anti-septic properties, beeswax is an amazing natural treatment for acne. It moisturizes the skin without clogging pores and allows skin to “breathe.”

 

Whether you are 25 or 95, our premium beeswax product can be a great addition to your skincare routine for healthy, youthful and moisturized skin!
