A com­plete detox plan

Af­ter all the merry mak­ing, binge eat­ing and dress­ing up dur­ing the party sea­son, the word on ev­ery­one’s mind is ‘detox’. And for a good rea­son. It helps im­prove our en­ergy lev­els, aids in weight loss, flushes out tox­ins and boosts di­ges­tion. So much for the body, but have you ever thought about detox­ing the or­gan that is our big­gest im­mu­nity sys­tem? Yes, the skin. Ev­ery­day, our skin faces the wrath of en­vi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tants, tox­ins and chem­i­cals in beauty prod­ucts and needs a lit­tle TLC. Detox­ing helps negate the havoc that our life­style causes and elim­i­nate tox­ins that ac­cu­mu­late over time. This helps in re­tain­ing a youth­ful, blem­ish­free and glow­ing skin. Let’s take a look at some sim­ple and quick ways to detox our skin:

In­clud­ing nutri­ent-rich food and sea­sonal veg­eta­bles and fruits help in the nat­u­ral detox­i­fi­ca­tion of the body.

mon­i­tor your Diet

In­clud­ing nutri­ent-rich food and sea­sonal veg­eta­bles and fruits help in the nat­u­ral detox­i­fi­ca­tion of the body. Cut down on junk, pro­cessed, fried food and re­fined sug­ars. Watch the in­take of carb and gluten and you will feel bet­ter within. Good gut health is ba­sic for a healthy body, there­fore add pro­bi­otic in your diet too.

Drink Wa­ter

Sounds sim­ple and easy, but you need to watch the wa­ter you con­sume. Have lots of it. Make it in­ter­est­ing by adding cit­rus fruits to it. Not only is it more ap­peal­ing for your senses, but also aids the liver and detox­i­fies skin.

Care For your skin

The most cru­cial step in detox­i­fy­ing skin is us­ing the right skin­care prod­ucts and fol­low­ing a healthy regime. Skin­care starts with cleans­ing, fol­lowed by a mois­tur­izer and then some es­sen­tial oil for sooth­ing. Choose prod­ucts that are non­come­do­genic and help push out tox­ins, bac­te­ria and ex­cess se­bum, caused by pol­lu­tion and dust, with­out block­ing the pores. The sim­ple rule is: The health­ier you are in­side, the health­ier and beau­ti­ful you will re­flect out­side. Choose your skin­care prod­ucts care­fully, be­cause your skin ab­sorbs a lot of it, and avoid chem­i­cal-based, haz­ardous stuff.
