1. Apple Cider Vinegar Soak
Add a cup of apple cider vinegar (make sure you find a brand, such as Bragg’s, that includes the ‘Mother’) to your Epsom salt bath. This combination helps to draw out toxins through the skin and support the body’s natural detoxification process.
2. Dry Body Brushing
This simple act of dry brushing before each morning’s shower is a powerful way to stimulate the lymphatic system and boost circulation – both essential for detoxification. Brush in small circles, starting at the soles of your feet, up towards your heart, before continuing from each hand, up the arm toward the heart. When brushing the stomach area, be sure to work in a clockwise position. Always use a natural-bristled brush.
Drinking water is an obvious way to achieve a glowing, hydrated complexion. Begin your day with a glass of water mixed with 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon honey. During the day drink green tea with lemon or ginger tea, which is bursting with skin-protecting antioxidants.
Adding a good probiotic to your diet helps purify your skin from inside out. Regular bowel movements and strong immunity are essential for clear, toxin-free skin and long-term health in general. Instead of buying expensive probiotic yogurts with “live” bacteria, make your own yogurt or invest in a simple yogurt-making machine and experiment with fresh fruit, cereals, honey and even culinary herbs added to your yogurts.
5. Go sweating
Exercise gets your heart beating and your skin sweating, which helps to cleanse impurities from your body. Try your favorite exercise at least five times a week, and consider a heat yoga or spa session to turn up the heat.
