In the effort to improve our lives, sometimes we take measures that are overboard and even unnecessary. Sometimes the real answer lies in the little things and keeping our lives simple. This can be applied to just about any area, including skincare, anti aging and even nutrition and exercise. Why not make things easier on yourself by working on the little things that donít take that much effort? When it comes to purifying our lives and removing toxins from our bodies and even the environment, the process doesnít have to be overwhelming.
The concept of detoxification has taken on a whole new meaning, causing people to undergo procedures such as fasting, drinking special concoctions to cleanse their systems and even taking pills and powders that promise to remove all the impurities from their bodies and skin. However, such extreme measures may not be necessary if you know how to detoxify your life on a daily basis. With each small milestone youíll be able to purify yourself from head to toe.
If you want to keep your complexion vibrant, healthy and free of toxins, you donít necessarily need to spend a ton of money on spa treatments. A clay mask is all youíll need. This skincare product can be purchased at affordable prices at any store, online or at your favorite specialty skincare store. There are different types of clay mask products to choose from, all formulated to cater to every skin type. For example, if you have oily skin, choose a clay mask that is green or red, which will absorb the excess oil and set your complexion back to normal. This product can be used on a weekly basis to maintain a glowing complexion.
Another way to purify your skin and keep it at its best is to choose skincare products that do not list parabens on the ingredient label. This is especially important when it comes to body lotions. Studies show that exposing your skin to high levels of parabens can negatively affect the bodyís endocrine system. When in doubt, opt for products that contain organic ingredients and formulas.
Want to make sure the air that you breathe at home is free of toxins? There are two ways you can go about achieving this. The first step is to purchase paint that does not contain volatile organic compounds, also known as VOCs. Volatile organic compounds are automatically released into the air, polluting it with the fumes that we all have smelled before when opening a new can of paint. Luckily, there are more and more paint products being made without VOCs that are much safer for use inside the home. Paints that are free of VOCs donít even require you to air out the room after painting it. The second step you can take to purify your home is by decorating your living space with lively house plants. It is a known fact that plants and trees absorb carbon dioxide, which is one of the most harmful toxins out there, and produce fresh oxygen. Just a few small potted plants in your windows and in choice areas of a room can bring in all the fresh air you need.
