Apart from maintaining a healthy diet, getting enough sleep and exercising, the body can be supported in detoxification from outside as well, through a number of treatments and regimens that also help your body eliminate toxins. Cleansing done externally will help improve skin’s appearance, accelerate cell activity and stimulate blood and lymph circulation. Here are some of our favourite body detox beauty tips to get rid of the toxins and make your skin looking healthy, toned and glowing.
Detoxify Your Diet:
Although there’s no proof fasting or expensive detox pills or drinks improve your looks, your diet does affect your skin. And new evidence shows changing the way you eat can help clear up acne, keep your skin firm, and even improve your smile.
Bath and Steam:
To a great extent toxins are eliminated from the body through sweat. Saunas and hot baths force the body to sweat heavily, making them highly effective tools for detoxing. Low heat sauna or a steam bath help work up a moderate sweat and thoroughly cleanse the body. Refreshing shower after the treatments will wash away toxins released with sweat and normalise body temperature.
Massage will not only help the body remove toxins but will also make you relax. Massage stimulates circulation, improves blood pressure and diminishes fluid retention in legs and arms along with releasing stress-reducing hormones. It also decreases tension and anxiety. By improving circulation massage therapy activates natural processes that eliminate toxins and can help bolster metabolism and immune function.
Body wraps are often used to promote detoxification, weight loss, skin nourishing and cellulite reduction. They work through sweating as well as nourishing the skin and involve applying detoxifying substances such as herbal or mud mixtures to problem areas and wrapping the body with materials or plastic wraps. It is very important to stay hydrated during body wraps.
Body’s largest organ, skin, plays an important role in cleansing and removing toxins and wastes from the body. Exfoliation is a very good method to promote detoxing, it removes dead skin cells, increases circulation, stimulates and tones your entire body. One of the most effective and simple ways to cleanse and improve general health of your skin is dry brushing.
