I like to do a Dtox Bath after body brushing. Swing by Dtox Flywheel or Buckhead and grab a bottle. Pour half in a comfortable hot bath and soak for twenty minutes. We use high quality Epsom Salts, ginger and eucalyptus for our Dtox Bath.
Epsom salt is the common name for the compound magnesium sulfate and is actually a pure mineral compound. Dtox Bath's magnesium is readily absorbed through the skin and can have a laxative effect. Ginger opens the pores and heats up the body similar to a fever. Eucalyptus oil has a purifying, anti inflammatory and decongestant quality.
Magnesium is an essential mineral used by the body for a variety of functions. The body requires magnesium for muscle contraction and relaxation, proper nerve functioning, activation of certain enzymes and production of protein. It also helps maintain the levels of other nutrients in the body such as calcium and vitamin D. A lack of magnesium can produce symptoms such as twitching muscles, sleepiness and excitability.
Dtox Bath is great during a cleanse or to relax the muscles.
Another component to diminishing cellulite is massage. Get circulation going and soften the cellulite layer after body brushing or a Dtox Bath. I use coconut oil because it is cooling and best for my constitution, or dosha. I will explain more about doshas later but for now, know there are three; vata, pitta and kapha. Vata is air, pitta is fire and kapha is earth. Sunflower and coconut oils are great pitta options. Sesame and almond oils are great for kapha and vata.
Use whatever you like and devote 5 minutes or more to massaging the areas that are dimpling.
Don't use lotions that have toxins in them. Make the switch to using only oils that are okay to eat to rub into your largest organ the skin. It all goes into your body as if being eaten. Coconut oil has many medicinal benefits taken internally so you can rest assured using it from the outside in.
Remember, cellulite is a partly due to accumulated toxins. Ditching toxic beauty products where you can is crucial for Daily Dtox.
