Royal jelly is being used in many skin-treatment products. A study has shown that royal jelly increases the moisture of your skin and to treat dry and damaged skin. Participants in the study showed a 28.8% and a 60.4% increase in the hydration index after only 7 and 21 days of treatment.
What is royal jelly?
Royal jelly is a thick, paste-like substance secreted by working honeybees to feed and nurture queen bees. This substance contains high concentrations of nutrients that are beneficial for humans.
In the majority of cases, royal jelly is used for the treatment of skin disorders and to improve overall skin health. You can find royal jelly available as freeze-dried, refrigerated, and sometimes blended with beeswax or honeybee.
Improving Skin Hydration
Another study revealed that consuming royal jelly can help moisturize your skin. The explanation for this is that the royal jelly, when consumed, helps the enhance Ceramide metabolism. Ceramide is the major component of the epidermis, an important component of your skin.
Ceramide also makes up 20% of the cell's matrix, which in the case of the skin, glues cells together and helps skin maintain its appearance while protecting it. By enhancing the body's ability to metabolize ceramides, royal jelly helps enhance the skin's moisture and helping it look healthier.
Treatment for dry skin
When applied topically, royal jelly has the property of increasing your collagen levels. This will result in tighter, firmer skin and an overall healthier skin. You can find it in the form of creams and soaps. Replace your current moisturizer cream with it. Using it in the soap form eliminates all the use of chemicals that regular soaps contain. A soap with royal jelly is 100% natural.
