Most of us not only want to look good – we want to feel good as well. We’re also staying active way longer than previous generations did, so we want the energy and good health to continue to enjoy sports, travel, and other activities.
That’s why rebooting your body through detox is a great way to rid your body of toxins while kickstarting healthy eating habits and exercise.
Here are just a few of the benefits:
- Your body will eliminate harmful substances from your body. Ridding your body of toxins will improve your overall health in the long term, and increase your energy, clear your skin, and release water weight in the short term.
- Improved digestion, especially on a juice fast, will positively impact every aspect of your well-being. Your body will be able to release toxins faster and utilize more of the nutrients in your food.
- Reduce or eliminate cravings. You will find that you rarely crave salty, fatty, or sugary sweet foods. Your body is now satisfied with fresh, healthy foods which allow you to continue on a weight loss or weight maintenance program.
- Weight loss. You will probably experience an immediate weight loss of a few pounds of water weight. This is a great incentive to continue losing weight by following your detox with a healthy weight loss program and the addition of exercise.
Your skin is your largest organ and hair and nails can tell a lot about the condition of your overall health. Toxins, hormonal changes, too much direct sun without sunscreen, smoking, and many other factors can lead to dry, sallow skin.
Detoxifying your system will purge your body and your skin is one of the first places that you’ll begin to see the changes. Don’t be alarmed if you break out a few days into your cleanse. This is normal as your body releases toxins. However, soon after, you will begin to see an improvement in your skin.
A deep cleansing facial will remove impurities just below the surface of your skin and will reveal your new, glowing skin. Make sure that you are using daily sunscreen and moisturize in accordance with your skin type to keep your skin healthy.
