SKIN DETOXIFICATION

SKIN DETOXIFICATION

INSIDE & OUT 

 

Detoxification typically implies following a specific diet or using special products that claim to rid your body of toxins, thereby improving health and promoting weight loss. Detoxification starts in your liver. While it's a complicated process, you liver essentially does this in two phases. First, it converts toxic substances to highly reactive metabolites and then excretes these toxins. Your kidneys, lungs, skin and even gut also play a role in detoxification. Still, only when these organs are healthy, can they effectively eliminate unwanted substances.

Detox diets are said to eliminate toxins from your body, often involve the use of laxatives, diuretics, vitamins, minerals, teas, and other foods thought to have detoxing properties. So, while detox diets don't do anything that your body can't naturally do on its own, you can optimize your body's natural detoxification system.

There are many detoxification programs and detox recipes, depending on your individual needs. Many programs follow schedule involving fasting on liquids, followed by a carefully planned detox diet to allow the digestive system to rest.

TOP 10 WAYS TO HELP YOUR BODY DETOXIFY

 

  • Eat plenty of fiber
  • Cleanse and protect the liver by taking herbs
  • Take vitamin C, which helps the body produce glutathione, a liver compound that drives away toxins.
  • Drink at least two quarts of water a day
  • Breathe deeply to allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your system
  • Transform stress by emphasizing positive emotions.
  • Practice hydrotherapy by taking a very hot shower for five minutes, allowing the water to run on your back. Follow with cold water for 30 seconds.
  • Sweat in a sauna so your body can eliminate waste through perspiration.

 

BUT WHAT ABOUT A DETOX FOR THE BIGGEST ORGAN IN OUR BODY?

 

The skin is our largest organ and allows toxins to be eliminated through sweating. Often when the other detoxifying organs are compromised, toxins will begin to come through the skin as acne, rashes, blemishes, pimples or sores.

 

WHY DOES DETOXIFICATION HAPPEN?

 

  • Congestion (with oil, dead cells, hair follicles, makeup product buildup)
  • Stress
  • Lifestyle habits (alcohol, smoking, too much sleep, and too little water).
  • Too much sugar (processed sugar cause inflammation in body & is one of biggest contributor of acne).

WHY DO WE NEED TO DETOX? Simply because clean and clear skin is the only way for good stuff to ever penetrate. In fact, good stuff on clogged pores is only junk on junk - meaning it can trigger breakouts! In which case, it's not so much the product that's triggering a reaction, but your skin not being able to absorb the nutrients. If the product's not going in, it's staying on... meaning you're just clogging it up more!

 

QUICK SIGNS THAT SAY YOU NEED A SKIN REBOOT

 

  • Dull, sallow skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Oily skin
  • Wrinkles & saggy skin
  • Dry & sensitive ski

WAYS TO SNAP DULL SKIN INTO SHAPE:

 

Deep cleanse (Eating lots of fruits and vegetables and drinking at least eight glasses of water a day helps your skin flush out toxins from the inside. But to thoroughly remove product buildup from the outside, make sure you are double cleansing daily).

Double cleansing involves use of oil-based cleanser followed up by a water-based one. After the first step has removed any makeup and impurities, the second cleanser will address your particular skin type or concern. Clinze face wash (water based cleanser) is formulated specially for all skin types and has ingredients to hydrate, smooth or exfoliate and treat acne.

Exfoliate (The goal is to frequently slough away dulling, dead skin cells and toxins that you are purging from your skin).

Hydrate (Complete your detox regimen by keeping your skin's moisture levels balanced. Opt for a moisturizer that contains Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate).

Moistize lotion with Hyaluronic acid and other multiple moisturizing elements jointly replenish the skin with moisture to wholly hydrate and give lasting moisturizing effects.
