Glowing skin is a side effect of cleansing!

By Louise Belle BHSc (Nut Med)

Have you ever noticed how people that eat well and exercise have a certain glow to their skin? Have you recently done a detox program and noticed that your skin was brighter, smoother and less blotchy? It’s all to do with the toxic load! Everything you eat, drink, smell and touch is absorbed into your body. The air is polluted, food is covered with pesticides and full of additives, cleaning products and beauty products contain harmful chemicals and all of these toxins, chemicals, heavy metals and waste products flood your body. The liver does its best to remove them, but is often overworked, resulting in some of these toxins being stored deep in fat and muscle tissue.

When you do a cleanse

  • You remove foods that cause inflammation in the body (such as sugar) and flood your body with antioxidants that calm the inflammation. Eating a diet high in inflammatory foods and low in antioxidants can contribute to skin conditions such as acne and eczema. When you do a cleanse and change your diet, the inflammation is reduced and your skin starts to look more vibrant and youthful.
  • Your liver will work more efficiently! As you offer your liver additional support and reduce your toxin intake, your liver will start to clear out toxins and waste products that have been stored in your body. The liver uses the skin as a main pathway for removing waste from the body. When you have a lot of toxic build up, it can show up on your skin. As your liver function improves and your toxic load reduces, you should notice that your skin clears up and looks healthier.
  • Your bowel health improves! Doing a cleanse helps to weed out the bad bacterial and candida overgrowth from the gut, and encourages a friendly environment for the good bugs to thrive. Cleansing also helps to reduce inflammation and repair the gut lining. Studies suggest a connection between gut health and skin conditions, with skin problems more likely to occur in people with poor gut health. Making your gut healthy will help to make your skin glow.

The Dr Cabot 15-Day Cleanse contains 3 nutritional powders daily that will boost antioxidant intake, support liver function and improve gut health. It is combined with a healthy 15-day meal plan to further support your body in achieving optimal health.

Supporting healthy collagen production is also a vital component of achieving healthy, glowing skin. Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, and it is responsible for the elasticity, texture and appearance of our skin. Marine collagen is popular on the market, but it is best to provide your body with the tools it needs to produce its own natural collagen. Vitamin C, MSM and silica are required by the body to produce healthy amounts of collagen. When these nutrients are lacking in the diet, your skin integrity will decline. Obtaining these nutrients from diet or supplementation will improve the appearance of your skin.
