What Is a Detox?
Your body is exposed to chemical toxins every day.
These toxins can be consumed or absorbed into your body, which can complicate your skin.
Detoxing is the process of removing these harmful toxins from your body, which can be done through simple and easy changes to your diet.
After having gone through a detox, people report the following experiences:
• More energy
• Reduced stomach/GI cramps
• A clearer head
• Clearer skin
• Reduced effects of eczema or psoriasis
• Reduced effects of Crohn’s & colitis
These top 5 detox tips will help you remove toxins from body, get more glowing, radiant skin, and feel more comfortable in your body.
1. Drink More Water
Hydrating your body is the easiest way to begin detoxification.
Water flushes out toxins and leaves your body and skin feeling fresh and clean.
Our bodies need at least 6 to 8 glasses of water a day, so making sure to stay hydrated is a great first step in the detox process.
If you’re having trouble drinking enough water during the day, tea can also be helpful – but make sure it’s non-caffeinated herbal tea, since caffeine is a diuretic.
Getting a hydrating facial can also help your skin look and feel its best.
2. Cut Back On Caffeine
Caffeine is a chemical found in coffee, some types of tea, and soft drinks.
These drinks can wake you up, but they are harmful to your body overtime.
Caffeine can actually dehydrate your body, so try to swap out your caffeinated drink for something decaffeinated, like green tea.
Cut out caffeine and your body and skin will thank you.
3. Cut Back On Alcohol
Alcohol is a chemically enhanced product.
Excessive use of alcohol means more toxins in your body and puts you at an increased risk for health issues.
Limiting your use of alcohol will help your detox process and leave your skin looking fresh.
Besides, many alcoholic drinks either contain gluten (beer, some ciders, some spirits), or high amounts of processed sugar (cocktails, coolers), both of which can have adverse effects on your skin.
4. Make Friends With Smoothies
Loading your smoothies with leafy greens, fresh fruits, and vibrant vegetables will leave your tummy and skin happy.
Smoothies can help you easily get those vitamins and minerals your body craves in one easy source.
Drinking smoothies filled with naturally alkalizing minerals will help your body detoxify and rejuvenate.
Some of the best foods to include in your smoothies include:
• Frozen berries
• Leafy greens
• Flax, chia, or hemp seeds
• Sugar-free cocoa powder
