Detox In & Out
We all need to take out the time to detox our bodies and skin. Detoxing helps eliminate toxins from your body, improve health, and promote weight loss. Since your skin is the largest organ on your body, it's imperative that you are taking the necessary steps to protect it. Remember, health is wealth!
Here are some ways to detox your body and skin:
1. Drink plenty of water
Water regulates your body temperature, lubricates joints, aids digestion, nutrient absorption, and detoxifies your body by removing waste products.
2. Limit alcohol intake
Excessive drinking can severely damage your liver function by causing fat buildup, inflammation, and scarring. Alcohol reduces your liver's ability to carry out its normal functions, such as detoxifying.
3. Lay off the sugars and processed foods
High consumption of sugary and highly processed foods has been linked to obesity and other chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Replacing junk food with green vegetables and fruit is a way to reduce consumption.
4. Focus on Sleep
Adequate sleep allows your brain to reorganize, recharge, and eliminate toxins that accumulate throughout the day. FYI you can be successful and still get the right amount of needed rest!
Regular physical activity lowers inflammation and allows your body’s detoxification system to work properly.
6. Choose natural body care products
Using natural deodorants, cleansers, scrubs, moisturizers, shampoos, and other personal care products can also reduce your exposure to chemicals
