Get Rid of the Bad Stuff
Here’s the deal, we live in a world where we’re exposed to a TON of toxins. Many health and skincare experts have found that an overabundance of these toxins can affect our skin in a negative way, so by doing a detox of the toxins it can flush out the ‘bad’ stuff and allow your body to heal more. It’s been found that when our bodies hold onto toxins for too long it’s put under a great deal of stress, which can come through as the result of acne and other skin related issues. Many suggest that increasing your water intake is a great way to consistently detox your system as it helps to naturally flush out toxins from the body. Now if you’re actually going through a short-term detox that’s stricter, cutting out toxins you’re putting into your body is essential. This means cutting out smoking, avoid drinking alcohol, and staying away from anything that could hold toxins. Essentially you’re going to want to get on the eating clean plan, which means lots of fruits and veggies and pure forms of protein. Staying away from things like sugar and dairy have been found to positively impact acne, especially during a detox.
