Slather on masks
Masks that are made from mud, clay, or activated charcoal are simple and effective ways to extract toxins, heavy metals, and chemicals out of the fatty tissues underneath your skin. If you can’t get to a spa for a treatment, consider doing your own in the privacy of your own home. Health food stores are treasure troves for these ingredients, and they’ll cost much less than a day at your favorite 5-star spa.
Focus on your lymphatic system
One of the methods your body has in place for removing waste is the lymphatic system. Often though, particularly as we age, it can get slowed down. Simple inversion practices can help with this. That’s what inversion tables are for, but if you don’t have one, you can lie on the floor, placing your hips up to the wall and extending your legs vertically. You can also jump on a rebounder each day to help with moving the lymphatic system along.
Brush toxins away
If you’re not keen on the inversion, you can also use the dry brushing technique. It removes dead skin cells while boosting that lymphatic flow. You don’t need anything special either, just a soft brush or even a dry washcloth. Stroke the skin from the feet up all in a circular motion moving toward your heart. Do both legs, then your abdomen, then each arm. In just 5 minutes a day, you can improve your detoxification efforts.
Start with one of these daily detox habits and then add them all in if you can. Which one are you excited to try first?
