Have you ever tried a weekend skin detox? If it’s on your to-do list for the new year, but you don’t know where to start, just follow these four steps:
Step #1 Sweat – Getting yourself moving is a very effective way to eliminate toxins and poisons through the skin. Walk, run, do Pilates or hot yoga – work up a sweat on both Saturday and Sunday to purge those toxins.
Step #2 Exfoliation and Dry Skin Brushing – By removing dead skin cells, you can allow your pores to breathe and detoxify more effectively. Do this step on Saturday to help stimulate the lymph system to clean itself and purge the toxins and poisons. This Loofah Package is a great way to help jumpstart the process.
Step #3 Detox Bath – Detoxing through bathing is considered an ancient remedy and it can be done in the comfort of your own home on Sunday. A detox bath helps the body eliminate toxins as well as absorbing the minerals and nutrients in the water. Common ingredients used in a detox bath are Epsom salt, baking soda, and essential oils.
Step #4 Organic Skin Care and Organic Cosmetics – Decreasing the number of synthetic substances entering the body is another way to help detoxify the skin. Let’s face it, our skin is constantly exposed to environmental pollutants and toxins. Why add more with the use of cosmetics containing harmful ingredients such as parabens, petrochemicals, and synthetic fragrances? Instead, use certified organic skin care and cosmetics as an ongoing detoxifying treatment for your skin.
