With little time in our busy lives, it's good to know there are a few simple things you can do regularly that can make a huge difference to how your body functions, thus, making you look and feel healthier.
Yes, it's detoxifying your body. The trend of detoxing is progressively taking the fitness realm by storm as detoxifying your body is as essential as your food. It not only gives you a lean and fit body but also a healthy mind.
“But, detoxifying our facial skin at regular intervals is essential to eliminate impurities, dead skin cells, and excess sebum, which can help to restore the lost glow and address multiple skin problems,” said Arthi Raguram, Dermatologist, Saket.
How you can naturally detox your body with these five tips:
1. Increase the intake of water
Cleansing out your body is a daunting task. The intake of toxins and chemicals are so strong that our body needs time to process it out. So it is essential to keep yourself hydrated at all times. Drink enough water in a day; approximately 7-10 glass or 2 litres. It solves most of your skin issues and boosts our energy level to an optimum level. Also, you can start up your mornings with a glass of lemon water. This single glass does magic to your body and flushes all the toxins out.
2. Get active
Exercising and being physically active helps your body to feel energetic by improving blood circulation. Improved blood circulation has several advantages including improved digestion, relief in stress and tension, and makes your joints lubricated. Regular exercise is also associated with a longer life and a reduced risk of many conditions and diseases, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and certain cancers.
People who exercise regularly have increased metabolism and fewer toxins in their body as compared to those who do not exercise at all.
3. Steam your face
Step up your skincare game with facial steaming that helps in cleansing and nourishing the skin. Steaming regularly helps to eliminate the accumulated dirt, bacteria, and dead skin cells, thus preventing acne. Besides, steam promotes blood circulation that gives the skin a healthy glow. You can add essential oils in boiling water while taking steam for additional benefits.
4. Healthy Diet
When it comes to diet, a colourful variety of fruits and veggies should be the main focus of your diet. Also, dark green vegetables are full of micronutrients and are very low in calories, so you can eat a lot of them. Along with it, you should also eat whole grains, beans and legumes, and small amounts of nuts and seeds. Also, beets, cabbage, radish, broccoli, chlorella, and seaweed are super powerful detoxifying foods.
5. A good sleep solved everything
Full body detox is of utmost importance. A lot of us underestimate the importance of a good night's sleep. Your brain tends to wash out toxins while you sleep as well. Moreover, sleeping is the time when your body re-energises for the next day. Hence, ensure that you are getting sufficient sleep at night.
Now, that we have shared with you a list of effective tips for natural detox, bring them to your rescue and get a healthy mind and body along with soft and supple skin.
