Honey, it’s finally fall. This enchanting time of year brings us fabulous fall fashions, apple picking, and Pumpkin Spiced Everything. With all of our seasonal favorites though, also comes dry weather. Worry not – we have exactly what you need. Our Honey Bath and Body routine will keep your skin happy and hydrated. Honey Body Washes and Honey Body Lotions effectively soften skin drying out from dropping temps.
Stay hydrated from the inside out
Drink water! Support your skin cells by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Drinking too much water can flush vitamins out of your diet, but generally more is better. Since everyone’s bodies and activity levels are different, there’s no set amount that’s right. Healthline has a great article on proper hydration here.
Start with a bath and body cleanser that won’t strip your skin’s natural oils without replacing them
Our Honey Body Washes are made with pure honey, propolis and royal jelly. It might sound sticky, but it isn’t! Not only does it hydrate, but honey contains an enzyme called glucose oxidase, which breaks down glucose sugars and creates hydrogen peroxide. Translation? It cleans. These washes also feature propolis- strengthening skin with vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, and H (Biotin – which is important for healthy hair, skin, and nails). Honey Body Wash will balance oily skin and hydrate dry skin like no other.
Honey is a natural humectant, it’s hygroscopic. “Hygroscopy is the phenomenon of attracting and holding water molecules from the surrounding environment.” Unlike petroleum based products, which only seal in existing moisture, honey and beeswax based products pull moisture from oxygen molecules in the air to feed your skin. Honey also contains antioxidants which protect your skin naturally. Antioxidants limit production of free radicals and protect against environmental pollutants. Royal Jelly includes lipids, amino acids and proteins which help smooth and brighten the skin. We combine these wholesome hive ingredients with aloe vera leaf juice, coconut oil, almond oils and safflower seed oil for a Honey Body Lotion with 1/4 moisturizing ingredients.
Savannah Bee’s Honey Body Washes and Honey Body Lotions never contain any parabens or petroleum derived ingredients, and are never tested on animals. Get them in Lemongrass Spearmint, Orange Blossom, Tupelo Honey and Unscented (lotion only). Pick your favorite scent and use daily for a nourished, glowing skin.
