Spring time detox the natural way!
With spring setting in, there are changes not just in the environment surrounding you, but also within your body. This is the time when your body is adapting itself to the changing temperatures, gearing up for the summer. As such, what you eat and how you take care of your skin and hair play an important role for your overall well-being.
To maintain good, healthy skin, you must remember that ‘pH level’ has a crucial role to play. Your skin has a thin protective layer called the acid mantle, which is made up of amino and lactic acids that mix easily with fatty acids (oils) from the sebaceous glands. These glands secrete oil that protects your skin. The pH level of the acid mantle on our skin is about 5.5, which is slightly acidic. When you wash your face with soap, you wash away not only the dirt that’s clogging your pores but also the oil that protects it, leaving it dry and vulnerable to problems. This is why a regular routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising is important, apart from maintaining a balanced diet. And there’s nothing better than going the natural route to take care of your skin.
An important component in tomatoes is lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant that can work wonders to bring back life to your skin. The most efficient way to get healthy skin nutrient is tomato paste made from organic tomatoes. All you need to do is slice the tomatoes and make a paste, or just apply the slices on your face and then wash it with cold water.
