What you put inside your body for beauty is more important than what you put on it. The most expensive skin care product in the world cannot repair and restore skin that covers a body burdened by an intake of excess food, especially junk food and unhealthy sugar-laden beverages.
An overly taxed digestive system can result in equally sluggish looking skin. When the kidneys have to deal with too much waste, toxins can come out from the skin and cause blemishes and other problems. This is why you often get breakouts after a facial, deep tissue massage or a cleansing program.
After drinking half your body weight in ounces of water per day for two weeks (#H2O:30), you're ready for the Dtox Skin Cleanse having already brought out the toxins. The Dtox Skin Cleanse consists of four juices, one tea, and one elixir. Green tea with lemon, the first step in our Skin Cleanse has been found to reduce skin reddening, as well as increase microcirculation, increase elasticity, reduce roughness and increase moisture content of the skin. DTOX green tea is fair trade, organic, and FRESH so you'll receive all the antioxidant benefits. Raw, unheated, organic honey has antibacterial properties that speed the healing of infections and wounds, including acne. It also contains antioxidants, which neutralize free radicals to promote healthy skin. Honey also improves skin hydration, an important factor in the skin’s ability to maintain softness, suppleness and elasticity.
The first juice of the day is the PInk Plus juice containing grapefruit, coconut oil, aloe vera, pear, lemon and coconut water. Grapefruit has unique phytochemicals that help promote skin health. The skin consists of collagen which creates keratin, a protein building block found in skin cells. Grapefruit is rich in vitamin C which is essential to collagen synthesis. Raw Aloe Vera contains a multitude of vitamins including A, C, E, folic acid, B1, B2, B3, B6 and is one of the few plants that contains vitamin B12, which is essential for healthy skin, hair, and nails. It helps in cell reproduction and constant renewal of the skin.
Pure Virgin Organic Coconut Oil is made up of medium-chain-length fatty acids which are shown to raise the body's metabolism and are also antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial. The antioxidant activity increases wound healing and the lauric acid present helps prevent and reverse skin infections. It is an effective cure for psoriasis and eczema.
Next step in the DTOX Skin Cleanse is to choose either a Green Juice or the less sugar of our Lean Mean Green Juice with only 7 grams. The greenest juice with the least amount of sugar is what you're working your pallet towards. Watercress and parsley are just two of the 8 ingredients in our Green Juices. Parsley is a popular herb rich in vitamins A and C. It also helps clear blemishes and maintain an even skin tone, while also cleansing the urinary tract, liver, and kidneys. Parsley has high levels of vitamin K, which can improve skin elasticity and speed up the wound-healing process. Watercress is another veggie that helps to purify the blood, making it great for healing skin conditions. Due to its high sulfur content, watercress is a beauty vegetable that will assist in clearing and improving your complexion.
The third juice of the day is the Liquid Gold Milk. Brazil nuts have more selenium that any food source. Selenium aids the production of an antioxidant called glutathione, which actively slows down the skin's ageing process by repairing cell damage from things like sun exposure. Selenium is a mineral crucial to immune system function that helps speed cell turn over and leaves the complexion with a boosting glow and better elasticity. Our famous Brazil Nut Milk with Turmeric and Maca helps reduce acne, wrinkles and dry skin.
