Tip #27: Out With the Nasty Toxins!
Have you ever really enjoyed yourself on vacation and come back home feeling sluggish, bloated and down? Have you ever noticed that your skin has lost its glow and appears dull and saggy? Well, these symptoms are many times due to toxin overload in the body and especially the liver (the skin’s main telling organ).
We are exposed to toxins everyday! Toxins are rampant in our food, the air we breathe, the chemicals we put on our skin daily, etc. This is why I feel it is VERY important to detox your system on a regular basis!
The four main ways the body detoxes are found in the word P.U.R.E.
P is for Perspiration
U is for Urination
R is for Respiration
E is for Elimination
I like using methods of detox that follow this acronym and that are easy to use so that I stick with them. Some of the detox tricks that I use regularly are as follows:
Drinking LOTS of water daily to flush the system. I squeeze a lemon into the water in the mornings for extra detox! (Urination)
Walking daily outside (briskly) for 30-45 minutes to really sweat out those toxins! (Perspiration and Respiration)
Using my InfraRed SAUNA Blanket weekly for one hour to really detox and rev up the metabolism to maintain my weight. (Perspiration)
I take a good Probiotic daily to maintain good digestion and immunity. (Elimination)
After doing these simple detox tricks using PURE, I find that my skin glows, my weight stays even and I just feel better inside! I hope you can use these tricks to really make a difference in your overall health and skin beauty!
This week my daughter told me that she had already lost over 24 pounds since giving birth to my grand-baby last week. She said she was drinking a ton of water and that was really helping her!
Something as simple as "drinking water" doesn't phase most of us. We are all fortunate enough to have plenty of drinking water and it is easy to take for granted. But, the gift of WATER benefits so much of our lives!
I was just recently watching a You-Tube video on skin care and the topic was Drinking Water. The model said that she attributes much of her flawless skin to drinking over a Liter of water right when she gets up in the morning! Then, she continues to drink lots throughout the day.
I always try to drink water throughout the day, but now I am really trying to monitor the amount, especially in the morning.
Approximately 2/3 of the human body is water and 90% of the brain is comprised of water. The skin is largely supported by water and this is why being dehydrated will age a person by creating dry, wrinkled skin. I have noticed increased moisture in my skin since increasing my water intake. This is especially important to me now during the winter when I tend to dry out more with the low humidity(water) in the air.
The success of weight loss or management also largely depends on water intake. Water helps a person feel full so that they don't eat as much. It also revs up the metabolism which is critical for weight management!
A tip for drinking more water is to set a timer for a glass every hour, or keep a glass near you to remind you to drink up!
