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.
