When the body is unable to filter out toxins through the digestive system, toxins are released through the skin, causing cystic acne, which produces large, painful pimples that tend to leave deep scars if the infection is not treated properly.
For those detoxing, an increase in acne may occur initially as toxins that have built up in the gut and liver are being removed, but after the first few days, many see a drastic improvement in skin clarity.
Your skin is your largest organ, so it only makes sense that it would show positive results from a detox program. One way to help your detoxing efforts is to take a sauna to help the body sweat out additional toxins. You can expect clearer, smoother skin at the end of your detox plan. It’s also been reported that detoxing can help with acne, although the condition may worsen before it gets better as the toxins are released. You may find that your skin itches or gets patchy before clearing up, but this is part of the process and is a sign that you’re on the right track with your program.
It’s easy to see how a detox diet would cause you to lose weight in the short term, but a healthier way to look at it would be to establish long-term eating habits and rid yourself of unhealthy habits. Many times it is the drastic reduction in calories and rapid weight loss that is focused on, especially in the media. But these short-term results won’t last if you don’t make it a point to replace bad foods with good food, and use your newfound energy to exercise more and be more active overall.
By the time you can see your hair, it’s already considered dead, as all of its growth occurs within the hair follicle. This is why it’s important to keep your body functioning at its full potential through a regular detoxing strategy. When your hair is able to grow uninhibited by internal toxins you’ll see and feel the difference in your hair. In many instances, hair gets shinier and feels softer to the touch. Detoxing isn’t enough to stop male pattern baldness, but many reports that their hair grows more quickly, a sign of healthier hair.
Drink lemon water right when you wake up. This is a great morning ritual that will help kickstart the rehydration process and cleanse the digestive tract. The lemon contains Vitamin C, which will not only help your metabolism but will provide strength to your immune system as well.
Go organic. Keeping your body running like a well-oiled machine is key to having a properly functioning metabolism. You can’t expect it to work at its full potential if it’s trying to make heads or tails of herbicides and pesticides. By keeping your food clean, you help keep your body clean and your metabolism going strong.
Expose yourself to sunlight. This will not only increase your Vitamin D levels but will help you fall asleep more easily by releasing the right hormones at the right time. Vitamin D is an important vitamin for metabolism, as well as your overall wellbeing.
I drink tea every day, eat lots of healthy protein and tones of greens and drink lots of water. Fruits with moderations because of the fructose in it. I feel great and full of energy! My skin is so clear too!
