You may like a spread of honey on your toast, but Beeswax can happily go on your face too. Beeswax is a natural, wonderful source of vitamins for your skin, that won’t clog your pores or leave it feeling too oily.
Beeswax is rich in Vitamin A. Vitamin A contains retinol, which stimulates collagen production within your skin cells. The more collagen your skin cells produce, the more your fine lines and wrinkles will fade. Vitamin A is also highly useful for protecting your skin against infection. That’s why Beeswax is often lauded for its antibacterial qualities, because it can help clear up bacterial skin infections too.
As a moisturiser, Beeswax actually helps your skin attract more moisture into its cells. Beeswax acts as a humectant, attracting water molecules into its cells. Applying Beeswax to your skin makes it doubly easy for water to find its way into your skin’s cells.
Useful as a treatment for dry skin, Eczema, and Psoriasis, Beeswax soothes inflamed skin and can help to replenish moisture into your skin, while helping to heal any sores, and painful spots.
Softening the skin, and helping to heal cracks, Beeswax is commonly used in lip balms and similar products. It’s also great for sensitive skin. Considering how renowned bees are for their stings, it quite ironic that Beeswax helps to remove the sting and itch associated with redness and inflammation.
