Everyday our bodies are taking in toxins. We take in toxins through foods we eat and liquids we drink. We breathe toxins into our lungs from the air. And we absorb toxins through our skin. Although the human body is designed to clean out toxins naturally it is always important to give our bodies the necessary elements it needs to eliminate toxins at an optimum level.
Our kidneys and liver are primary organs that help filter out medications, alcohol, parasites and other toxins from the foods we eat. Our lungs eliminate a toxin known as carbon dioxide from our body and filter out debris in the air we breathe. But the largest organ in the human body, our skin, is also designed to eliminate stored toxins, and there are ways we can help our skin to detox more efficiently.
Here are simple ways to help skin purge unwanted toxins from our bodies:
- Wash Your Face in the Morning. It is important to cleanse your face in the morning. At night our bodies release toxins that we have absorbed throughout the day. A gentle clarifying cleanser is the perfect way to start your morning routine and it will leave your pores clean and refreshed. To give your skin an extra special treatments try the Hydrafacial. The Hydrafacial combines spa therapies with medical technology to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, hydrate, and nourish your skin.

- Drink Water – Remember the health rule: drink 8 Glasses of water a day?
This can sometimes be difficult for people who have a hectic schedule. Try using a larger water bottle to help keep track of water intake. Filling it twice a day can give you the necessary refreshment to achieve your half-gallon goal. Also, adding a slice of lemon to your morning glass of water will help re-hydrate your body and boost digestion, which helps push waste and toxins from the body.
- Work Up A Sweat – Exercising is a great way to release toxins. Through sweating our bodies can expel heavy metals and certain chemicals found in plastics. But aside from sweating, increasing your heart rate and breathing can effectively flush out unwanted toxins, fats and waste. The blood pumping through the brain and muscles will circulate through the other toxin eliminating organs ensuring the body’s ability to cleanse and purify.
- Facial Mask – Treat yourself to a clay-based mask that soaks up all impurities and clears clogged pores. A Clarifying Clay Mask is a deep pore-cleansing skin-refining masque that invigorates and clarifies all skin conditions.
Our skin can be the windows to our bodies overall health. If our other organs are over loaded with toxins we can begin to see the affects on our skin as acne, rashes, pimples or sores. We can have overly dry skin or increased oily skin causing clogged pores. Although it is entirely impossible to avoid exposure to all toxins in our environment, if we focus on taking care of our all of organs, than we can allow our bodies to do the magnificent job that it is intended to do.
