Christmas has well and truly left us, leaving us feeling and looking a bit worse for wear, but with the New Year around the corner we need to find a solution- and fast! If you’re wanting to feel good in time for the celebrations, a 3 day cleanse may just be what your body needs to kick start your way to a more refreshed you.
Cleansing and detoxification is not a new concept to the wellness scene, but many of us may not realise why it is needed. It is essential to cleanse regularly as harmful toxins can restrict our ability to absorb nutrients, which can lead to physical and internal issues on our body and its functioning.
A 3-day mini cleanse is a great way to get your body back on track by giving your digestive system a rest. The idea behind a cleanse is to give your body a break by freeing up energy so that your cells, tissues and organs can work efficiently once again. Cleansing the body of waste and toxic build up not only can help you lose weight due to the elimination of excess fluid, but it can reset your energy, improve concentration and help you achieve clearer, more radiant skin.
Is a beauty detox the right thing for you?
It is easy to become consumed with the ideals and hype around juice cleansing that we often don’t think about whether it is right for us. A great way to determine if a detox is right for you is to listen to your body and read the signs. Skin problems, irritability or mood changes, feeling tired and sluggish, difficulties sleeping, bloating, anxiety and even constipation are all symptoms your body may be in need of a good cleanse.
A cleanse is a must for anyone wishing to support health and balance of their skin. – so how can we get started?
Start with a morning lemon water: This is great way to kick start the digestion and cleanse the system. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon in a cup of hot water. Drink first thing in the morning before breakfast.
Exercise: During a detox aim to exercise for at least 30 minutes of high intense cardio daily which may be boxing, jogging or even a spin class. Vigorous exercise increases circulation to help sweat out toxins.
Raw foods: Aim to cut out the cooking process and eat mainly raw foods. Raw foods contain more nutrients and enzymes that help support your digestion and immune system.
Drink water: We all know the importance of drinking water, and when it comes to flushing out toxins and detoxing your body, it plays a vital role in the elimination process. Aim to drink three litres of fluid daily to help support liver and kidney detoxification.
Try green juicing: Green juices are a great way to detoxify your body and kick start a healthy lifestyle by introducing whole, nutritious foods into your diet. If you’re stuck on what to include in your green juice, we recommend a combination of apples, cucumber, spinach, kale, lemon and ginger for the perfect detoxifying drink.
Modern lifestyles and environmental factors can contribute to a toxic overload, which is why it is important to assist the body when we can.
