Female Health: Detox your Skin

10 Feb

 

If you got an oily T-zone, or breakouts around the jaw or neck,  you may need to detox. Sometimes the skin will feel spongy with visible signs of cellulite and you may have spots near the major lymph nodes under your arms or around your groin area.

Herbal teas are excellent for re-hydrating your skin and flushing toxins, as is water.  Drink two to three liters and exercise for 30 minutes every day to sweat toxins out. Milk thistle is a great supplement to help activate natural liver functionl. If you can, use a sauna or steam room, followed by gentle exfoliation.

Also start body brushing daily to stimulate your lymphatic system and boost circulation. Expect a spotty face as your detox kicks in and impurities are drawn to the surface. Try products made with natural antiseptic manuka honey. If your skin is dehydrated, use a facial oil, such as rose orargan. Ali suggests spritzing your face with a water-based mist, before applying oil, so the moisture is drawn deep into your skin.
