Detox your Largest Organ
The skin is the body’s largest organ and one of its primary functions is elimination. When there is an excess of toxins in our system, it can be manifested in the skin by sallowness, excess congestion (bumpiness and blackheads), enlarged pores, breakouts and dark circles.
HOW DOES DETOXIFICATION BENEFIT THE SKIN?
The skin is the body’s largest organ and one of its primary functions is elimination. When there is an excess of toxins in our system, it can be manifested in the skin by sallowness, excess congestion (bumpiness and blackheads), enlarged pores, breakouts and dark circles. There are of course other contributing factors which can elicit these conditions in our skin which should not be overlooked; simply doing a detox will not cure these conditions, but it can be one step in their alleviation.
WILL I BREAKOUT FROM A CLEANSE?
Elimination is one of your skin’s functions. With this in mind, detoxification can lead to some skin flare ups like eczema or blemishes. Coming in for a facial can help to alleviate these problems, but don’t panic, generally these responses to cleansing are short-lived and will subside within a few days as the toxins are eliminated.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A DETOX/ CLEANSE
When considering a detox program, it is important to evaluate your goals. Often detoxes are undertaken to facilitate weight loss (the Master Cleanse is a notorious example of this). Unfortunately, more extreme cleanses like this do not facilitate the formation of new healthy habits post-cleanse and therefore, weight gain and toxins are reintroduced in full force.
A well-rounded detox program will include whole fruits and vegetables, lean protein and sometimes herbal or nutritional supplements to facilitate cleansing. Most cleanses and detox programs require you to cut out refined sugar, flour, alcohol, dairy and sometimes caffeine. Depending on their length, these can be daunting changes to make.
We are offering our members a skin care treatment in August with Biotech that will go well with any detox or cleanse that you may be doing while enjoying the summer months.
