Spring Skin Care
Toxins can accumulate in your body in other seasons but in the
spring, these toxins want to come out. The warmth of spring starts to
melt these accumulated toxins, which then clog the channels of your
body and create a variety of symptoms. You may feel dull, heavy and
congested, or your skin may lose its glow and can be itchy and
To keep your skin healthy, you should increase the consumption
of foods that support the detoxification process. Eat lots of leafy
green vegetables, Brussels sprouts and white deacon radish. Also
increase whole grains like wheat, barley and quinoa and alternate them
in your diet. These vegetables and grains contain plenty of
water-soluble fibers that aid detoxification. Make sure you drink lots
of pure water. Sip warm water during the day, Avoid heavy, cold and
oily foods and by reducing the sweet, sour and salty tastes.
The release of toxins cannot happen without proper elimination.
If you are prone to constipation, add cooked prunes and figs to your
diet, and eat lots of sweet, juicy fruits. Deep breathing and regular
exercise are both important to having healthy skin. A brisk walk can
increase your metabolism, enhance the detoxification process and
improve circulation to the skin. The fresh air and a little sunshine
will also refresh your complexion and uplift your mood.
As you are purifying your body, you should put more emphasis on
cleansing and exfoliating your skin as well. Try having a facial or a
microdermabrasion to help exfoliate.
