THE MAGIC OF MANUKA

Spread it on your toast; spread it on your face. Beauty that’s good enough to eat is having a moment, and right now it’s Manuka honey creating buzz (sorry). More than a superfood, this golden elixir has been celebrated by Maori communities for centuries thanks to its healing, antibacterial properties. With a higher concentration of these compounds than regular honey, it makes a perfect natural acne treatment and can be used on skin infections. As a natural humectant, it draws moisture to the skin, encouraging cell regeneration and boosting elastin production. And it couldn’t be easier to get your fix. Slather it, neat, on your face and relax for 30 minutes (trying not to lick your lips too much) or combine with mashed avocado and coconut oil for an ohso- millennial mask. Rinse off with warm water to reveal soothed, silky-soft skin.

About Healthy Magazine

How are you feeling today? I’m asking as this September edition is our first-ever dedicated healthy mind issue. With growing awareness of, and discussion around, mental health (one in five of us experiences mental health problems, according to the Government), we wanted to unpack some of the most commonly experienced problems, such as anxiety, depression and stress. The aim: to give you a ‘mental health toolbox’ to help you feel empowered as you navigate the obstacles of modern life, such as feeling at breaking point doing your ‘third shift’ (the first shift being your actual job and the second being chores at home; the third shift is managing your digital life). See our self-care strategies in Your Healthy Mind Protection Plan, p32. ‘For me, it’s definitely a very personal battle against an ongoing buzz of stress – a racing mind and heart in the middle of the night, or when I wake up – that I am just Not Going To Get Everything Done. Somewhere, a ball will be dropped. The only remedy that regularly works for me is exercise – cycling, swimming (my favourite for mindfulness) and, now, as I prepare to take on the Three Peaks Charity Challenge with others in my office (including our writer, Hattie), it’s walking whenever I can. We deep dive into the idea of exercise as prescription on p120. ‘Elsewhere, we’ve gone mad for manuka honey, which is definitely having A Moment. Discover why this wonder stuff is better than ever, p17, and what exactly you can do with it, p108. Editorial director @elliehughesUK PS If you want to know how Hattie and I get on in our mission to climb up (and down) the UK’s three tallest mountains in 24 hours this August, we’ll be keeping you updated on our website, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Delicious and nutritious – now that’s my kind of superfood!’
