Regularly taking a spoonful of honey will help remove toxins from your skin. Outside of just eating honey, you can actually apply honey to your skin for a variety of use cases mentioned below.

Honey as a moisturizer

Honey has a special hydrating effect on the skin that moisturizes deep under the base layer of your skin where moisture is needed to refrain from becoming dry.

To use honey as a moisturizer, simply take a teaspoon of honey and spread it on your skin dry. After you let it sit for 15 minutes, wash it away with warm water to reveal silky smooth skin.

Honey as a spot treatment for acne

Honey’s antibacterial properties also makes it an excellent spot treatment for acne, simply apply to problem areas and let sit for 10 minutes before washing away. 

Honey as an exfoliant

To make an exfoliant, take a tablespoon of baking soda and a tablespoon of honey and mix it together. Wet your face and scrub your skin with the mixture, the baking soda acts as an abrasive as the honey provides the cleansing and antibacterial properties to make this a super effective homemade exfoliant.

Can help you lose weight

When you’re starting to get serious about losing weight one of the first things to cut is refined sugars and sweets from your diet. For the sweet tooth, it may be hard to part with any kind of sweets.

Luckily honey can be an excellent replacement for regular sugar. While honey contains natural sugar, it doesn’t have as harmful effects on your health or weight as refined sugar. 

Along with honey’s beneficial vitamins, minerals, enzymes and proteins, it helps boost your metabolism which aids in processing foods in the body to minimize it storing fat.

Honey helps your heart health

A buildup of bad cholesterol leads to a buildup of a plaque in your arteries, which are the blood vessels that are connected to your heart. As plaque builds up on the wall of your arteries, it inhibits blood flow and can lead to blood clots that cause heart attacks and strokes.

With daily consumption, honey’s antioxidants help lower the excess buildup of bad cholesterol in your arteries making it a great addition for someone who wants to improve their heart health, but doesn’t want to load up on taking more medications.

Of course talk to a doctor about using honey if you are already taking other medications to make sure it doesn’t react with the rest of your prescription regimen.

Honey helps improve your memory and level of alertness

According to a study published on the National Library of Medicine, the study concluded that honey and its properties act as natural preventive therapies for both cognitive decline and dementia.

One cited use case was treating a common side effect of menopause is known as “menopause brain fog.” Many women report that their memory is not as good as it used to be since menopause.

In the same study cited earlier women who were given honey over the course of the study showed improvement in their immediate memory.

Honey promotes good gut health 

While passing through the stomach, honey’s antiseptic properties help repair damage and heal wounds to the mucus membrane along various diseases associated with the digestive tract. 

Honey helps with relief from bloating after overeating and indigestion as well.
