A new year means a new you and what better way to welcome it than getting rid of all those unwanted stuff from the biggest part of you – your skin! Here’s a simple 4-step skin detox regimen by Abe’s Market which we’re sure everyone can follow.
Step #1 Sweat
This is a very effective way to eliminate toxins and poisons through the skin. Walk, run, do Pilates or hot yoga – work up a sweat on both Saturday and Sunday to purge those toxins.
If you’re planning to do yoga, check out Wai Lana’s Easy Yoga Kit which already includes:
Metro Blue Yogi Mat™ (1/8″H x 24″W x 68″L)
Beginners and Toning DVDs
(Approx. 50 minutes each)
6-foot yoga strap (Color: Cornflower Blue)
6-month membership in Wai Lana’s online Relaxation Club
Even more, here are 7 detoxifying yoga poses you can try out if you’re already a yogi. If you’re still starting out, it is best to ask your instructor for advice.
Step #2 Exfoliation and Dry Skin Brushing
This removes the dead skin cells allowing the pores to breathe and detoxify more effectively. Do this step on Saturday to help stimulate the lymph system to clean itself and purge the toxins and poisons.
This Loofah Package is a great way to help jumpstart the process. Using a natural loofah sponge increases circulation, giving your skin a healthy glow and putting you in a relaxed state of mind. Loofahs are gentle enough to be used every day. They’re a simple, wholesome way to rejuvenate your skin.
Step #3 Detox Bath
Detoxing through bathing is considered an ancient remedy and it can be done in the comfort of your home on Sunday. A detox bath helps the body eliminate toxins as well as absorbing the minerals and nutrients in the water. Common ingredients used in a detox bath are Epsom salt, baking soda, and essential oils.
Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to enjoy the amazing health benefits.
Aura Cacia’s 100% pure vegetable oils are extracted from natural plant or botanical sources, such as almond kernels, grape seeds and jojoba fruit. In addition to their soothing and moisturizing properties, these oils are highly valued for their ability to nourish the skin with fatty acids, antioxidants, and natural vitamins.
Step #4 Organic Skin Care and Organic Cosmetics
Decreasing the number of synthetic substances entering the body is another way to help detoxify the skin. Let’s face it, our skin is constantly exposed to environmental pollutants and toxins.
Why add more with the use of cosmetics containing harmful ingredients such as parabens, petrochemicals, and synthetic fragrances? Instead, use certified organic skin care and cosmetics as an ongoing detoxifying treatment for your skin.
