How to use honey for a summer detox

With months of endless lockdowns finally coming to an end and the bright summer on the horizon, many people are looking for ways to detox and improve their health. Even alone, organic raw honey has medicinal benefits and antibacterial properties that make it a true superfood. For centuries, honey has been used in multiple ways.

So what are some creative ways to use natural honey as a part of your pre-summer detox regime?

1. Drink honey and apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is great for helping your digestive system to work smoothly and effectively as well as having properties that could potentially boost your immune system. When paired with natural raw honey, which is a natural immune system booster, this is a tasty short daily morning tipple. You’ll soon find those toxins are flushed out of your body so that you can feel healthier and more radiant.

2. Apply honey to the skin

When you embark on your detox, don’t forget to indulge your skin. An important major bodily organ, it’s essential not to neglect to take care of it in the best ways. Amazingly, honey can really help improve your complexion, thanks to its incredible properties as an exfoliator. Raw honey is an easy, gentle and effective way to reduce inflammation on your skin and this will ultimately give you a confidence boost as you pursue your detox.

3. Substitute honey for sugar

Honey doesn’t cause the same spikes in blood sugar as cane sugar, because honey has a lower GI value. Using just a small amount of raw honey instead of your usual spoonful of sugar will not only give you a boost, but it will also be better for your waistline.

4. Use a honey hair mask

Rejuvenating your dull and tired hair is an important factor in a detox and honey can really help with this. Due to its humectant characteristics, honey bonds with water molecules, increasing the moisturisation of even the driest strands of hair. What’s more, as a natural emollient, raw honey can actually smooth your hair follicles and give a sheen of shine to even the most damaged hair.
