With the holidays approaching, there will most definitely be many family and friend reunions. If you´re also going to meet someone that you want to impress, (but don’t know quite how), you could always try a detoxification of your choice. As your lifestyle is reflected straight on your skin, a little help from following these detoxification guidelines will not only stimulate, rejuvenate and purify your skin, but also make you look your best at any holiday get together.
As already stated, the foods you eat are reflected through your skin. Also, it is said, ‘you are what you eat, but you are not a carrot’. Meaning that maintaining a good nutritional balance and restricting some foods will really improve your skins’ appearance.
First of all, drinking at least two litres of water each day hydrates the body, which in turn results in a healthier and clearer skin. Drinking teas will help you obtain this goal and will also boost your purification. As well as any diet requires, you have to cut out sugar, saturated fats and dairy products in order to get the very best results.
Tip: For quick and remarkable results, find three day detox crash diets that consist in only drinking juices or teas.
Exercise is very important for detoxification as you eliminate toxins through sweat. Just by going to the gym for half an hour on a daily basis will give full body movement and will also reduce stress and anxiety; benefiting both your physical and mental health.
Tip: Sign up to hot yoga once a week as it helps with relaxation, breathing and concentration. It also tones the body, increases the flexibility and provides clear skin as you would eliminate any sign of toxins.
Get back your skin’s brightness and energy by updating your products. Use clay masks to cleanse your skin thoroughly by getting rid of pollutants and free radicals, making it silkier and smoother. You can also improve the effects of your beauty sleep by applying a moisturiser and a detox oil at night to wake up to a brighter and fresher skin complexion.
When searching for detox products, check for these three key ingredients:
- -PLANT EXTRACTS
- -ESSENTIAL OILS
Tip: Treat yourself with a bath once a week. The essential oils and salts you add will mildly cleanse the skin and increase relaxation.
