Manuka honey is a popular item in health food stores, and for good reason. It has “been used medicinally to help with skin healing in cases of superficial burns, and has some natural properties that can protect against skin pathogens,” says Robynne Chutkan, MD, author of The Microbiome Solution (Avery). To help soothe and moisturize dry skin, Chutkan suggests combining 2 tablespoons of manuka honey with 2 tablespoons of fresh, ripe papaya flesh and 1 tablespoon of oatmeal. Wet your face and hands, mix up the ingredients in your palms and gently scrub in circles for a minute.
