We often think that the secret behind a great skin lies in all sorts of magic creams and lotions, but most of the time, you need to look a little deeper than that. No cream will do the trick if we keep leading unhealthy lives, if we overpower our body with toxins, processed foods and unhealthy habits.
And since it is detoxing season, why not start a detoxing plan that will give your skin that much needed glow? Let’s take a look at some of the most important aspects of detoxing, and how it can help your skin:
The Importance of Drinking Water
Due to the fact that we are not drinking enough water, the balance of our bodies has to suffer, and the negative aspects are easily observable: from skin problems or cellulite, to kidney problems and premature aging. Drinking more water will clear your skin, prevent cellulite, help you lose weight, take away your food urges, and improve the circulation of your blood. Drinking more than 2 bottles of water per day might not be an easy task, but you will see than in a few weeks you will get so used to it, that you won't be able to live without it. When you are feeling stressed, drink water. When you feel you can’t stick to any diet, drink water. When you have acne problems, drink water. The magic remedy, just one step away!
The things we eat show up on our scale in no time, but did you ever think about the effect that bad foods have on your skin? When starting a detoxing diet meant to improve your skin and make it healthier, you first need to find out what foods harm you, so that you know what to eliminate form your diet. Sugar, alcohol, red meat, dairy products, or processed foods, although pleasure your taste buds, can be real enemies for your skin. Add more vegetables and fruits to your diet; things like lemons, beats, parsley, or cabbage. Did you know that parsley helps your body eliminate the fats that are responsible for cellulite? Or that lemon is a powerful antioxidant and helps your skin produce new collagen?
If drinking water all day is not something you are ready to do right now, although you should, you can alternate it with detoxing teas. Green tea is especially great when it comes to healthier skin, since it is known for the content of antioxidants. The same little miracle maker, green tea, can help you with skin redness, can increase elasticity and even moisturize your skin. But don’t stop at green tea, all teas has a wonderful healing potential when it comes to the skin; enjoying a few cups of tea daily is the best thing you can do for your skin, body, and mind.

Apart from water, foods and teas, there are a few other detoxing methods you can try in order to improve your skin and prevent premature aging. You can exercise, take hot and cold baths, go to the sauna, use a steamer for your face (it does wonders for your pores), wrapping or massages.
