In recent years, “detox” has become a trendy buzzword. You might have already tried a few different types of detoxes with meal plans and juice cleanses after an indulgent beach vacation. Or maybe you’ve tried detox tea to eliminate bloat. But what about detoxing the biggest organ you have?
It doesn’t matter what you think about the concept of detoxing, there’s no denying that there are days when your skin could do with a boost. There are days when your skin just feels dull or suffers a breakout, especially after overindulging, sleeping in your makeup, or neglecting to protect it from the sun.
If any other part of the body feels sluggish or just isn’t working the way it ought to, from your brain to your gut, it shows up on your skin in the form of clogged pores, bloat, and a dull complexion.
You should be detoxing your skin on a regular basis to get rid of toxins, impurities, dead skin cells, and pollutants. As a result, you can look forward to revitalized and refreshed skin that looks and feels as healthy as it should.
If you’re not sure where to start, here are our top ways to detox your skin inside and out.
1. Up Your Water Intake
Drinking water is a common health recommendation and an important step to detoxify your body inside and out. We often neglect water in the colder months, which takes its toll on internal waste removal. To detox your skin, sip plain warm water every 15 minutes throughout the day for a week. Add half your weight in ounces of water at room temperature every day, too.
If you don’t have a water filter, you might want to invest in one to ensure you’re drinking the purest possible H2O. If you want an extra detox boost, add some lemon to your liquid.
2. Deep Tissue Treatment
A deep tissue massage doesn’t just alleviate aches and pains, but it works to rid your body of toxins, inflammation, and pain. As a result, your skin receives a much-needed circulation boost.
If you don’t already include exfoliation in your weekly beauty regimen, now’s the time to start. In fact, exfoliating at least twice a week boosts circulation, sloughs away dead skin, and leaves your skin glowing.
4. Body Renewal Treatment
With the help of Himalayan Salt Crystal, our energizing and detoxifying body renewal treatment in Myrtle Beach is designed to eliminate toxins while exfoliating your skin at the same time. As a result, you feel uplifted, cleansed, and refreshed.
5. Don’t Be Afraid to Sweat
A workout gets your heart rate up and your skin perspiring, which helps to rid your body of impurities. Try to get a workout in at least five times a week and consider spa sessions and hot yoga to turn up the heat and detox your greatest asset.
6. Cut Down Caffeine
While it’s pretty hard to cut down on your favorite coffee, the results on both your energy levels and your skin are worth the effort. Coffee, especially, is not easy on the liver, intoxicating it and forcing it to work harder than it ought to. Coffee is also a diuretic, so it weakens your hydration levels inside and out.
On the bright side, this is the perfect excuse to try new or different drinks, and there are plenty out there. Green tea, for example, is packed full of antioxidants that work well for your skin.
Your skin is your largest living organism, and it deserves to be taken care of. With these tips, you can start getting rid of toxins and enjoying healthier, nourished, and silky skin all day every day.
