The skin is one of the main organs involved in the removal of toxins from your body, mainly through sweating. Sometimes the skin is saturated and in order to protect itself it can develop problems. We can help skin get rid of harmful substances to make her feel better and make her skin look better. Detoxification of the skin helps with pale and gray skin, unevenness and oily and dry skin that needs more balance.
Facial masks that use clay and mud, clean the skin from dirt and toxins. This way, you clean and open the pores as well and revitalize the appearance of gray skin. Summer detox can be done with a slightly thicker layer of mask that will remain on the skin for 10 - 15 minutes, which will then be removed with warm water and a soft cloth.
The usual recommendation for health is to drink enough water. The most important step for detoxification of the body, inside and outside. Unfortunately, especially in the winter, we usually drink less water, doing damage on the inside. For the stimulation for detoxification, every 10 to 15 minutes hot water for one day a week. Consider using a water filter if you do not have it. And if you want the extra power of detox, add some lemon to the water. Lemons naturally promote healthy digestion.
Avoid fast food. The more you eat fast food, the more your skin will suffer. For at least a week, don’t eat foods such as animal fats, dairy products, white bread and sugar. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, try to prepare food for work and try to eat cooked meals.
Sip tea. Teas such as nettle, ginger, dandelion and sarsaparill root are known to clean and empower the body and skin. Drink at least two cups of tea daily at least once a week.
For deep cleansing of the face, pour hot water into a small bowl and add a few drops of citrus essential oil. Soak the towel in the water and put it on your face. The best practice is to work this process while you relax. Try to calm down, enjoy the warmth which will also open the pores and remove impurities.
Try to exfoliate and peel the skin once a week it as needed. Use scrubs and chemical exfoliators that match the type of skin you have and the needs of the skin. Do not overdo it because this will remove the protective layer of the skin.
Exercise accelerates circulation, stimulates sweating and removes impurities from the body. Try to exercise five times a week, consider yoga or spa treatments to accelerate and encourage additional detoxification of the skin.
Dry brushing of the skin is one of the better ways to remove dry and dead skin on the body. Immediately before bathing or showering, brush your skin with circular motion for 5 minutes. Start from your feet and go up to your heart. You will remove dead skin cells and make your skin incredibly clean.
The home detoxification bath includes warm water, a cup of unfiltered apple vinegar. This will remove dirt and other impurities from your pores, helping your skin staying fresh. To make the bathroom luxurious, add lavender oil or sandalwood.
Peeling with natural acids such as papayas or cucumber enzymes, removes impurities and makes the skin soft and supple.
