Have you ever heard about the rule – “ If you don’t put it in your mouth, don’t put it on your skin!”? Well, we couldn’t agree more. We seem to be incapable of noticing all the real toxic elements we put in our body and on our skin because of the lack of time, dedication and most importantly, we don’t really know the damages we’re actually creating in our body and skin. We should once and for all, learn what are the real benefits of creating some healthy detoxifying habits.
We need to practice some healthy everyday choices in order to properly clean our system. Our entire body and its organs, especially skin, which is the largest one, are strongly affected by everything we decide to consume. So, we have prepared, after a deep research, the top 3 things everyone should start doing in order to keep a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Most importantly, the things we should all do in order to prevent all kind of health –related issues and keep a beautiful, young-looking skin! These are what the experts (especially neurologists) do, in order to keep their body and skin healthy, so check them out 😉
We are what we eat!
This is the first, most essential rule we need to keep in mind. All vitamins, minerals, antioxidants etc. are vital to our long-lasting health and beauty. We cannot achieve anything good by preventing ourselves some healthy, organic foods which have the ability to work in the strongest way especially when having a problematic skin.
Despite creating and consuming a healthy balanced diet, filled with homemade dishes and prepared with unprocessed foods, here are some of the fruits and veggies you should never skip including them in your everyday diet. Since we‘re mostly focusing on skin, these foods work some real miracles on this organ.
Filled with vitamin E, B, and A, avocado helps our skin stay hydrated for a long time and also, our nails and hair strong and vibrant. They are a great source of biotin, zinc and other elements which detoxify our body.
Cucumbers contain silicon, which is a perfect element to help in fighting the lack of skin’s elasticity and wrinkles.
Eggs are high in protein. This element helps to build strong and healthy nails and hair. Also, they contain vitamin E, which help our skin be hydrated and vital.
Tomatoes are a very important fruit when trying to keep a healthy skin and not only. They are filled with antioxidants (lycopene) which help to prevent the free radical’s production. Free radicals give an oxidative damage in our skin and body. Also, tomatoes contain silicon.
- Dark-colored veggies
Kale, broccoli, swiss, spinach etc. they do all contain some essential minerals and vitamins for our body. They should be included in every single meal. Filled with vitamin E, C, and many antioxidants which protect our organs. Our skin will be visibly more healthy and strong.
Drink a lot of water, especially detox water
Drinking water is one of the most important steps when detoxifying our body from inside out. And, drinking detox water is twice as good! Being dehydrated means more health problems. Means you can never expect having a healthy, good-looking skin. The lack of water brings acne, dry and irritated skin, wrinkles and many other issues. So, drinking at least 8 full glasses of water a day is considered to be a decent amount.
But, if you choose to drink detox water, by putting some fruits and veggies in your water bottle, then, you have just prepared yourself a multi-vitamin drink! Packed with vitamins, minerals, ANTIOXIDANTS and much more healthy nutritional elements, detox water is the perfects, best way to replace the natural water. Some of the most common detox water recipes are:
- Water filled with sliced lemons and ginger.
- Water filled with mint, lemon, and strawberries.
- Water filled with cucumber, mint, and lime
- Water filled with blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries
- Water filled with water lemon pieces and mint.
Be a green beauty shopper
And by that, we mean you need to always be careful and choose wisely when purchasing skin care products. In order to seal good and healthy results, you need to select some natural-based products. If you cannot really afford to buy some of these skin care products, you can always try to prepare them at home.
It’s better to not buy a face cream at all than using a product filled with dangerous chemicals which will not only damage your skin cells but also, you. Purchasing some organic skincare essentials, means you are making a real investment here! What you put on your skin, is as much as important as the food you chose to eat. When naturally fighting free radicals, dehydrated cells, and many other issues, you can expect some quickly, efficient results in not much time!
