When it comes to detoxing, it is not just about eating certain foods to detox your organs and system. Did you know you can also detox your skin and hair by eating certain beauty detox foods?
How to Detox Your Skin
Use These Natural Foods to Beautify Your Skin
Natural Raw Honey
Natural raw honey works as a natural cleanser. If you have skin scars that are becoming darker or more prominent, do not use the chemical based scar removal creams on the market. Use natural raw honey instead. It will help fade the scar and keep it from darkening over time.
If nails are your issue, consider using it as a cuticle softener instead of a nail grinder or file that can damage your nail beds.
You may be surprised to see sardines on this list. Though you can't use them directly on the skin as a topical remedy, you can use them in your diet routine.
Other natural foods lead to skin beautification. These are the most common, easy to find, and most affordable for most people. In fact, these foods may be the ideal alternative to high-cost beauty treatments and routines that you otherwise would not be able to afford
Drink More Water
Drinking water is something that people try and do, and most don't meet their daily goals. This is for a variety of reasons. In fact, if you look on Pinterest, you will find goal charts and hundreds of methods to help you drink more water in your daily routine. If you aren't sure what benefit you can gain from drinking more water, outside of hydration, consider these health factors

Nutrients to Support Healthy Skin and Hair During the Hair Detox
You may want to add a couple of supplements to your hair detox regime because focusing on internal health is just as important as what you do externally.
The following list of supplements can be used to heal, strengthen, and lengthen your hair:
Biotin is a naturally occurring B-Vitamin, specifically Vitamin B7 in leafy green vegetables. It is one of the best supplements for renewing the hair follicles and roots. The result is thicker, healthier, and fuller hair.
Silica comes in two forms: liquid and capsule. The capsule form is commonly marketed under the name Horsetail. Silica in its liquid form is more efficient and potent. I recommend putting the recommended amount in your morning lemon water.
Coconut Oil is not only excellent to use as a hair mask, but it's also good for internal health as well. It helps with digestion, (the key to good health) and strengthens the immune system. I like to put a tablespoon in my morning smoothie and another tablespoon in chamomile tea in the evening. Either way, try to get at least two tablespoons in your body for skin and hair health daily.
If for some reason, you don't get immediate results with the above supplements, there's a liquid “Hair, Skin, and Nails supplement that will make a huge difference. The only caveat is that it's a bit pricey (about $25 for a month's supply).
The three most essential nutrients to improve hair and skin health are collagen, keratin, and elastin. Find them in liquid form for the fastest absorption.
How Often Should You Detox Your Hair and Skin?
After your first skin and hair detox you will see and feel the difference, and you'll be hooked for life. I recommend detoxing the hair and skin 2x a year in the spring and fall when you do your liver cleanse.

These are great natural alternatives for detoxing your skin and hair. I try to tell people all of the time that it’s best to go all natural over chemicals. Cucumbers are great for hydration and they also flush out toxins in your body. They can even relieve you from things like skin irritations or heartburn. I believe cucumbers can help you with direct contact to the skin as well, I’ve seen people lay slices over their eyelids. Raw honey and avocado are a couple of my favorites too.
Thanks for the info!
Thanks for sharing Anton… love your contribution!
I’ve never considered doing a hair detox but now I’m inspired to do so straight away!
I have baking soda and ACV at the ready. I try my best to use natural products but for convenience, some of the commercial shampoos sneak in – especially if I’m travelling and have to use the products provided!
I’m going to have a go at the baking soda massage and rinse then a spritz of ACV for conditioning. Some of the natural products I have used for shampooing in the past has caused dandruff – do you have any advice for treating or preventing this?
Hello Joanne! I can’t wait for you to try the ‘hair detox’ with ACV. Please report back! 🙂
If you’re experiencing a bit of dandruff, I would try a oil scalp massage once a week or so… Use jojoba or coconut oil with a few drops of tea tree oil. Massage it in and then wait an hour or so before showering. LMK how it works?!
As you are using natural products for shampooing, you can use some natural products to prevent dandruff. But you should remember that it is not the only reason that causes dandruff. There may be some other reasons. If you want natural remedies then I’ll suggest you use tea tree oil with your shampoo. You may find many other natural ways on the web to reduce dandruff.
Thanks for sharing these wonderful tips for the detoxification.
A detox is just the thing your hair needs to get a fresh start that really helps in removing the dirt from your hair but also the build up that hair care products leave behind.
I generally prefer to detox me hair every one in a month that helps to cleanse your hair of the gunk and makes it more susceptible to other hair care treatments.
I just wanted to comment to warn people with acne prone skin when they are using any kind of oil on their skin. Some oils, like coconut oil, are highly comedogenic so they will cause a pore blockage leading to an acne outbreak. Always try to go for a non comedogenic oil as those will not clog your pores. That being said, Article is stellar Anton, in-depth and thorough, something you don’t see as much these days 🙂
