If you hit the reboot button on your immune system at the beginning of the year, 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 kilos, and generate a fresh complexion. Since detoxifying the body is hard work, a few side effects such as impure or dry skin can be noticeable. In this post, Susanne Kaufmann reveals which three products she counts on during a detox phase.
Detox. Our body excretes toxins via the digestive tract and the detoxification organs. However, if the liver, intestines, kidneys, and gallbladder reach their processing capacities, toxins are stored in the fatty tissue, and subsequently 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 urine, fat-soluble toxins remain in the body for as long as the liver and intestinal circulatory system takes 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. It is then time to gently support the body.
Care. If toxins are excreted through the skin, impurities or dry, itchy areas may form. Susanne Kaufmann relies on these signs to signal the need for basic and gently clarifying care:
