Detox your way to clear, glowing skin

What causes acne and other skin problems?

If you or someone you know suffers from acne, there is hope. Although acne primarily afflicts teenagers, breakouts can flare up in adulthood, too.

The root cause of acne is hormonal imbalance combined with congesting toxins that build up in your blood and lymph fluid. The over-production of sebum and congesting blood toxins creates the perfect acne breeding ground for skin eruptions such as whiteheads, pimples and cysts. 

Age spots, brown spots, liver spots, brown patches ─ these conditions are caused by the liver not functioning effectively. The liver is the largest internal organ in the body and performs many crucial functions including detoxification, removing toxins from the blood and producing bile to help breakdown fats in the body.

Healthy life, beautiful skin

Expensive creams and dangerous acne remedies are not the answer because they can’t address the real problem. When you discover how to treat the real problem, you can have amazing, healthy looking skin that will last you the rest of your life. A healthy liver, clean blood and properly functioning body systems are essential to overall health. A carefully developed detox program, along with a well-balanced diet and lifestyle can heal and rejuvenate your complexion.

 10 tips for a radiant, blemish-free complexion

  1. Detoxification – Toxins accumulate in major organs such as your liver, kidneys, lungs and skin. Detoxify your body to flush out these toxins and help your organs absorb nutrients and repair at the cellular level. This will improve your complexion and yield lasting results.
  2. Skin brushing – Use a soft-bristle brush to brush the skin from the feet up to remove dead skin cells and improve circulation all over the body. Brush from the fingertips towards the heart to facilitate the flow of lymphatic fluid.
  3. Proper nutrition – Consume a vitamin-and-mineral-rich diet of natural, unrefined foods, including fish and lean meats, whole grains and an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  4. Keep hydrated – Drink at least eight glasses (60 OZ) of filtered water every day, and more if you work out, are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  5. Take vitamin C, which helps the body produce glutathione, a liver compound that drives away toxins.
  6. Regular exercise – Exercise can help flatten your abs and beautify your skin. Work outs boost circulation, whoosh out toxins and facilitate the production of testosterone-related hormones such as DHEA and DHT, providing dramatic clearing effects for acne and wrinkles.
  7. Breathe deeply to allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your system.
  8. Sweat in a sauna so your body can eliminate wastes through perspiration.
  9. Practice hydrotherapy by taking a very hot shower for five minutes, allowing the water to run on your back. Follow with cold water for 30 seconds. Hydrotherapy helps increase blood circulation, strengthen the immune system, heal injured tissue, improve well-being and energize the body.
  10. Be happy – Smile always and stay happy. Remember that negative thoughts can stress you out, which adds toxins to the body. An optimistic outlook makes for a sound mind and sound body.

 Are you ready to live a toxic-free life? 

The body needs detoxification and this can only be achieved through a proper and disciplined lifestyle. How we maintain our body determines how well it can serve us in time of need.  After all, overall wellness means you are healthy both on the inside and the outside.

Detoxify now and be refreshed!
