The skin is the body’s largest organ. While we focus on our faces, a true detox should be holistic and all-encompassing; this means a whole-body endeavor. The goal is to clear out our pores, so getting a good sweat on is a great way to stimulate a whole-body detox. Hot yoga, a jog around the neighborhood, or a vigorous hike will aid in wellness.
In the morning, practice dry brushing to remove dead skin and stimulate the lymphatic system. This can be energizing, and a bit flaky, so it’s best to do this on dry skin, before your morning shower. Brush upwards on the legs towards the heart in short, yet firm, strokes. Repeat from wrists to heart.
For an evening unwind, take a hot bath generously, 2-3 cups, filled with epsom salt. The epsom salt helps to draw out toxins and strengthen detox pathways. So the more relaxing baths you take, the more detoxing power you’ll achieve!
