A-List Advice: Scarlett Johansson

It was once revealed that manuka honey is the secret behind Scarlett Johansson’s red carpet glow. The Hitchcock star and all-round American beauty uses the native New Zealand ingredient as a face mask. She apples manuka honey directly onto a recently washed face and leaves it on for 10-15 minutes. The 28 year old swears by this natural treatment saying, “It really adds an amazing glow and your skin is so soft afterwards. It pulls out the impurities”.

Scarlett is clearly onto something. Manuka Honey is a natural remedy that New Zealand’s Maori tribe have been using for centuries. It is cherished for its powerful antibacterial and astringent properties which make it the perfect ingredient for treating acne and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

If you don’t fancy slathering sticky honey on your face I would recommend Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask (£21.99 / $39.00 or The Organic Pharmacy Manuka Face Cream (£37.96 / $76.00
