We all love some summer sun, but sadly, its effects on our skin are less than ideal, even if we’ve been extra careful with our SPF. Sun exposure causes sunburn, sunspots, and photoaging, resulting in uneven skin tone and wrinkles (no thank you!)
Time in the sun is most often coupled with outdoor activities that leave our skin vulnerable to chlorine, salt water, and wind, all of which leave us in need of a summer skin reset! We also have to keep in mind that the arrival of autumn brings cooler temperatures, lower humidity and stronger winds.
This is the perfect storm for dry, irritated skin and chapped lips (which is only made worse with central heating). Follow our ultimate honey-infused routine for refreshed and revived summer skin as we transition into fall.
Why will honey help my skin?
Honey is an amazing ingredient for dry, summer-weary skin. Honey is a powerhouse of nutrients and antioxidants that promote skin cell regeneration, reduce redness, and add moisture - making it perfect to repair and restore your skin after a summer in the sun
Our honey is sustainably sourced from the Mirsalehi Bee Garden using a bee-centred approach - we only ever take surpluses of honey. Mirsalehi Honey is the key ingredient in all of our honey-infused hair and complexion products.

How to restore your driest patches
Chlorine, salt water and UV rays are all incredibly drying for the skin, so take this time to restore and rehydrate. Start off your routine with our Honey Infused Beauty Balm. This 99% natural formula contains clinically proven actives to bring back your healthiest, dewiest skin ever.
Composed of a hydrating, non-sticky base of Mirsalehi Honey, a microbiome-restoring Postbiotic Oil Complex and our very own proprietary Oil Blend, this naturally active, antioxidant-rich formula will work to intensely nourish, soothe and restore your skin’s driest areas. To top it all off, this product is suitable for all skin types.
After showering, warm up a generous amount of the Honey Infused Beauty Balm between your fingers, and massage it into your driest areas for a deeply restoring treatment. This product is a targeted spot treatment for any dry face and body part that needs a little extra nourishment and attention.
Use an exfoliating body wash in combination with an exfoliating glove to tackle extremely dry areas (e.g., knees, elbows, ankles) to remove any dead skin before beginning your skincare routine. Exfoliating will help to remove any dead skin cells and ensure your skin is prepped to quickly absorb your products.
How to bring back a glowing complexion
The Honey Infused Face Oil is a lightweight, nourishing formula, which contains natural actives and 95.7% freshly cold-pressed botanical oils. The Mirsalehi Honey acts as a potent antioxidant that helps heal and prevent moisture loss after exposure to the elements. Rosehip seed oil and Vitamin E will also work to heal and regenerate sun-damaged skin, whilst evening primrose oil will help to promote a clear, rejuvenated complexion.
Overall, this product will help to soothe weather-beaten skin, as well as regenerate and even out skin tone and texture to maintain your summer glow after time in the sun. This product is suitable for all skin types.
After cleansing, apply 2 to 3 drops of the Honey Infused Face Oil. Warm the product up in the palms of your hands, and then gently press it into the skin. You can then massage it in with your fingertips.
We recommend cleansing your face with warm water before you get started, as warm, damp skin can absorb face oils more easily.
How to soothe dry, chapped lips
The skin on our lips can lose moisture up to 10 times faster than our face, making it super important to keep them nourished after (and during) a hot summer. After applying your Face Oil, give your lips some love with our Honey Infused Lip Oil.
Our lip oil is 99.5% natural, composed of Hyaluronic Acid that works to instantly hydrate the lips, and our proprietary Mirsalehi Bee Garden Oil Blend and natural actives, work together to nourish and moisturise the lips, leaving behind instantly smooth, plump and defined lips while enhancing their natural colour and providing a natural shine.
Simply glide the Honey Infused Lip Oil onto your lips for instant nourishment.
For the softest, smoothest finish, cleanse and exfoliate lips before applying, using a face cloth or finely granulated sugar.
How to revive your scalp
If you’ve had a summer of fun outside in the sun, your scalp is bound to have taken some heat. Our scalp treatment contains ectoine which will prevent cell damage and help hydrate, balance and repair scalp microbiome after sun exposure. The botanical complex will also work to replenish, hydrate and protect the skin barrier. Whilst rice protein and celery seed extract will help soothe the scalp to reduce irritation caused by UV, saltwater or chlorine.
Apply the Honey Infused Scalp treatment on clean, dry hair in the evening. Apply a small amount of product directly onto the scalp in 3cm sections from the hairline to the crown. Leave on overnight.
Take your time to gently massage it in with your fingertips for 5 minutes to enhance circulation, distribute the product and allow the active ingredients to absorb.
Voila! You’re done. After completing this honey-soaked routine, your skin is bound to feel deeply nourished and restored. These products will also be your best friends moving into the cooler and dryer winter months.
