You’re engaged—that means it’s time to step up your daily beauty routine. We’ve talked to the pros, and we’re arming you with the tools for looking your best before, during and after your wedding. The constant thing that goes in every bride’s mind is how and what to do to look fresh and flaunt a flawless skin on the big day. From a strict diet and regular workout to beauty and hair treatment, a bride-to-be leaves no stone unturned to look like a princess on the biggest day of her life. Detox acts as a remedial process for poor digestion, weight gain, skin allergies like acne or pimples, and even high blood pressure.
Hands down that beauty treatments and skin care tips do help in getting that radiance and glow but, most brides-to-be end up missing on a common yet vital thing- detoxification. Detox cleanses the body at the cellular level, and helps to boost the body’s daily functions and leaves you feeling healthier and more energetic. Getting rid of harmful toxins from your body not only does wonders to your internal system, but also projects a more beautiful you by clearing your skin from the deepest layers, giving it a natural glow.
Start with Water
Grab a bottle of water instead of a fizzy drink. Avoid alcohol and caffeinated drinks like tea, coffee, or other energy drinks. Or, squeeze some drops of lemon, or add a slice of lemon or cucumber to your regular glass of water. Drinking water is an obvious way to achieve a glowing, hydrated complexion. Begin your day with a glass of water mixed with 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon honey. During the day drink green tea with lemon or ginger tea, which is bursting with skin-protecting antioxidants.
Include Fibers in Your Diet
Increasing the fiber content of your diet not only helps combat bloating, it has a tremendous benefit for your skin. Eat traditional oatmeal or delicious muesli for breakfast, switch from white bread to whole meal or gluten-free type, eat more nuts, and you will easily meet your daily fiber quota. Make a super-simple cleansing salad with ample amounts of salad greens, grated apples, carrots, radishes and any fresh garden herbs you can find. Fresh nettles and dandelion greens are awesome inner cleansers – splash stinging nettle leaves with boiling water to make them delicious and mild.
Say Yes to Fresh Juices And Smoothies
Avoid commercially packed juices, as the quantity of sweeteners and preservatives are high while the nutrients are low in them. Summer or no summers, smoothies got to be there. Adding a freshly made juice or smoothie into your daily diet will increase your energy, cleanse your skin and soothe your eyes.
Cut Your Sugar Intake
A seasonal detox is an effective way to clear your body of toxins, which will also speed up your metabolism and enhance your overall health. Start by decreasing the amount of sugar you consume. If you eat more sugar, you ask your body for more insulin, straining your pancreas and wearing yourself out.
Move Your Body
Regular exercise encourages circulation in the blood and lymph system. Doing so will also enhance digestion, reduce tension, lubricate joints, and strengthen your body. It’s a proven fact. People who exercise regularly have far fewer total toxins in their systems.
Sweat It Out in a Sauna
When you sit in the sauna, brush, lightly scratch, or tap the skin on your arms, legs, belly, and back. This will stimulate your pores to open more while you’re in the sauna, and boost the circulation at the surface of your body. Pretty soon you’ll start sweating, and with all the blood at the surface of your body toxins will come flowing out.
The Mental Detox is Important Too
Effective detox is not just physical, but also a mental mechanism. Your body will produce more toxins if you are stressed or exhausted mentally. So, just take a break from the unending wedding chores and enjoy a breather. Practice yoga, meditate, or do some simple breathing exercises. Or, read a book, take a walk in the park, or just sit in garden or on the terrace to calm your mind. This will give your body and mind time to rejuvenate and refresh.
