Introducing Honey Renewal Treatment
Back in 2021, Lemongrass Spa Products introduced a new skincare item to their lineup of products, the Honey Renewal Treatment. Good for all skin types but especially combination to oily skin, this hydro-gel treatment can help renew stressed and dehydrated skin while balancing, restoring and reviving skin’s radiance. A special bee complex of propolis, royal jelly, and honey helps to calm inflammation and improve blemished complexions. Let’s break it down a bit by taking a closer look at each of those 3 bee byproducts.
Although bees are perhaps most famous for their honey, they also have another valuable tool in their arsenal, propolis. Commonly known as “bee glue”, propolis is a type of resinous material that bees can collect on their legs from flowers, buds, and other sources of sap. It is then brough back to the hive, to be used mostly as a glue to fix any damage within the hive. While beeswax is generally used for large-scale construction, propolis is used continuously for to repair their home.
Now let’s relate that to our skin. Why type of damage might we need to repair on our skin?
- insect bites
- skin irritations
A healthy beehive has one queen bee, and the sole job of that queen bee is to make babies. We all know the importance of a healthy diet when it comes to making babies, and bees are no exception. The queen bee will be fed Royal Jelly, which is full of fatty acids, proteins, and all the nutrients she needs to make healthy bee babies. Since she is capable of laying over 1,500 eggs per day, she needs all the nutrients she can get! Nurse bees also feed the larva royal jelly to help them grow quickly. After three days they stop feeding royal jelly, (unless that bee is to become a queen) and switch to honey. Queen bees are fed royal jelly throughout the entire larva stage.
How does Royal Jelly translate to a skin treatment?
- wound healing
- increased collagen production
- antibacterial properties
- tissue repair
- protection from UV exposure
Honey absorbs impurities from the pores on the skin, making it an ideal cleansing agent. Its natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties help to protect the skin from damage of the sun’s rays, supports the skin’s ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin, leaving it feeling silky soft and supple. Honey will also seal in moisture keeping your skin well hydrated.
