One would think that Victoria Beckham would swear by cosmetics dispensed in Institutes to fight against signs of age… Against all expectations, she is also a fan of home-made masks. She has unveiled in detail her favorite recipe.
With 20 years between Posh and today’s accomplished artistic director, Victoria Beckham retains her aura of spicy brunette. Although she has access to the greatest care to maintain her skin’s health, the 44-year-old stylist has well-controlled routines at home. She reveals to our American colleagues at ELLE.com that she is a fan of a mask made with Manuka honey. One of the most expensive honey, but whose powers are undeniable. This recipe she discovered in Los Angeles delivers the details: Just mix Manuka honey with a few organic oats and an egg white. Mix well and apply it to the face. Poached for a few minutes, this mask has an incredible effect. But I want to stress that it has to be Manuka honey and not some honey, and organic quality is important too.”
THE HONEY OF MANUKA, A BEAUTY ASSET
This nectar is a natural wonder from the flowers of the Manuka tree, a tree that grows mainly in New Zealand, Australia and Tasmania. We know him better as “Tea-tree”.Manuka honey has strong anti-bacterial power and a great healing virtue, as highlighted by Santé Magazine, who interviewed an expert on the issue: “All honey contain this antibacterial substance,” said Dr. Becker, President of the Association francophone d’apithérapie. “ The special feature of Manuka honey is that it contains much more because of its botanical origin.” By eliminating bacteria faster, Manuka honey has the ability to regenerate and heal the skin faster. Our colleagues at Doctissimo add: «Its flavonoid content (antioxidants) makes it even more effective against skin aging».
This is what brings softness and efficiency to our beauty routines.
