Detoxing and your skin

Shared and quoted from the Susanne Kaufmann blog post on this topic:

"if you hit the reboot button on your immune system, your body will be thankful.  Detox - the targeted detoxification of our body over a certain period of time - can allow us to awaken new energies, shed a few pounds, and generate a fresh complexion.  Since detoxifying the body is hard work, a few side effects such as impure or dry skin may be noticeable"

These are the recommendations of Susanne Kaufmann during a detox phase:

"While detoxing, our body excretes toxins via the digestive tract and the detoxification organs.  However, if the liver, intestines, kidneys, and gallbladder reach their maximum processing capacities, toxins are stored in the fatty tissue and ultimately in the body tissue.  During a detox lasting several days, the body turns to the fat stores of energy reserves around the fourth day.  This releases toxins that return to the bloodstream.  While water-soluble toxins are processed by the liver and kidneys and excreted in the urine, fat-soluble toxins remain in the body for as long as the liver and intestinal circulatory system take to eliminate them.  Our body is working hard during this phase, and at times, symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, digestive problems, and blemishes may be noticeable.  This is the time to apply this basic and gentle skin balancing and clarifying care:

After cleansing the skin, apply the Active Agent Concentrate Clarifying, a herbaceous complex of plantain, masterwort, and linden blossom, which calms and clarifies the skin without drying it out

Follow with the Healing Earth Mask in order to harmonize the production of sebum during this detox process and support a deep cleansing of the skin.  The green clay and zinc oxide in the Healing Earth Mask are decongestants, soothing and antimicrobial, while the willow herb and cucumber essences refine the pores, leave it on for 15 minutes and gently remove with a damp washcloth

Drinking lots of water and herbal teas during the detox process aids in the elimination of toxins and helps achieve a clear, well hydrated, and radiant complexion"

Thank you Susanne Kaufmann
