Detox your skin from within
Dry July is a wonderful time to hit the refresh button on your skin. While you might be working hard and using all the right topical products, your skin also needs to be receiving the proper nutrients from within to ensure it is performing at it’s peak.
Below is a list of daily habits you can start to incorporate into your routine to get your skin glowing. Remember, this list must be supplemented with a healthy, natural diet and consistent exercise plan in order to yield results. For food and beverages the rule is to stick to products produced as close to it’s natural source as possible. If it comes in a packet or from a factory plant then remove it from your diet.
- Oil Pull
Oil Pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that has been around for centuries. I use coconut oil as it’s cost effective and easily accessible. When you wake up put 1 tablespoon of organic extra virgin coconut oil in your mouth. Swish it around for 10 minutes (build up to 20 minutes over a few weeks) then spit out into the bin. Do NOT swallow as this mixture will be filled with toxins after this pulling process. Oil Pulling helps to detoxify the body by drawing out all the bacteria in the mouth and throat. It will also help to rid you of bad breath, plaque and cavities as well as naturally whitens your teeth.
- Start each day with warm water and lemon
While lemon might taste acidic, in your body it has the reverse, alkalizing effect. It helps to adjust the acid levels in your body and balances your pH. Lemons are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants so not only boosts your immune system but also aids in digestion, cleanses the liver and reduces inflammation which are all great for glowing skin.
- Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water
Apple Cider Vinegar is a natural miracle product. While it has many topical uses and benefits from cleansing your skin and hair and cleaning your home without chemicals, it should also be taken internally. While I like to use apple cider vinegar as a salad dressing mixed with extra virgin olive oil, you should also mix a bit in water. Similar to lemons, apple cider is great for detoxing your liver. It works to breakdown fat in your body so is great for weight loss but most importantly it reduces inflammation in your body which is the leading cause for breakouts and skin sensitivities.

- Sip on bone broth
Avoid this one if you are a vegetarian, however bone broth has amazing gut healing properties. Organic bone broth is rich in collagen which helps to give your skin strength, smoothness, elasticity and a youthful appearance.
- Replace coffee for green tea
If you are on a detox then you might want to swap green tea for a natural, caffeine free alternative. However, if you need that energy boost green tea has much more health and skin benefits than coffee. Green tea rehydrates you better than water and is also an excellent source of antioxidants. Green tea promotes healthy cell growth which is imperative for glowing skin
