Post image for Beauty Rituals: 4 Ways To Detox Your Body

Our bodies themselves are perhaps the most incredible detoxification systems that exist. I see a holistic doctor, and he recently told me that, as long as our bodies are functioning properly, we could “eat a bowl full of parasites and be totally fine.” And it’s true. Read more »

I think the problem with this is equivocation. The physiology of normally functioning kidneys, skin, lungs, and livers is such that they are excellent at detoxifying substances in your body, which may be there due to substances absorbed, inhaled, ingested, etc., or due to basic metabolic processes whereby certain products of metabolism can actually go through fairly toxic combinations before they are harmlessly excreted in sweat, urine, breath, or feces. A toxin, strictly speaking, is a poison created within the cells of a living creature that is toxic, e.g. snake venom. A toxicant, is a usually what people mean by "toxins" within the body, like artificial chemicals present in cosmetics, or crappy foods, and whatnot. Your body shouldn't have toxins in it, since we are not toxic creatures, and while it may have its fair share of exposure to many toxicants, that is the point of your kidneys, and liver, and lungs, etc. Your liver is a rockstar of detoxification, that happens normally and each moment of every day. What I think people start to equivocate is the idea of lessening the burden on your liver and kidneys, particularly, by eating well, drinking enough fluids, getting enough sleep, and getting exercise to assist your body in its natural functioning. Anything beyond that is a fancy way to spend your money. Hope that was helpful.

Chloe - I totally understand where you're coming from there because obviously everything is made of chemicals, but I'm pretty sure in this context they're meaning 'harmful chemicals'. And there certainly are a lot of them, that you really wouldn't want to put into your body. Also, I'm really curious to know how detoxes go against basic biology - I'd like to hear the reasoning behind that (I'm not too knowledgeable on biology. Haha). Detoxes seem like a pretty good idea to me - what's not to like about removing toxins from your body?

Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel toner has done wonders for my skin! Its so naturally gentle and keeps my skin clear and glowing. I'm not a big fan of the smell of witch hazel, but the rose makes it smell wonderful! http://www.thayers.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=14&zenid=5dea5lfhnog04s4r8ebtbkjn86

What a great handmade gift idea, super easy and fast to make, but everyone would think you put a lot of time into it. I would love to use this after a long day and a good bath. http://onsradesigns.blogspot.com/

Yes, a 3rd vote for Andalou BB -- tint plus SPF. It's so pretty. I use it every day and combine it with Dr. Haushka's tinted cream when I want more coverage. The only downside is I don't love the citrus-y smell but that's pretty minor.

I am a red head and I have incredibly pale skin. I have never found a sunless tanner that doesn't turn me orange and leave me looking like a zebra! I am excited to try this but I have a few questions. If you wanted to keep the glow going should you apply every night (or will that build up too much color) or every 2-3 days? I am going on a vacation in the next few months and I would like to have a bit of color but my concern is, will I end up sweating it off in the hot weather and end up with streak marks in areas.

Lovely! Metallics are so great because they're versatile for casual or formal - and every season. The gold leaf detail would be beautiful on a maroon mani. Warm Regards, Alexandra www.littlewildheart.com

Love this. I'd enjoy seeing a post about the color oxblood (always makes me dream of fall) or of how to wear knee-high socks - I have a ton of them but for some reason feel a little uninspired about how to work them into my everyday wardrobe right now xoxo Sara http://www.restlessnomads.com

I have used everything you can imagined for my curly hairs without success unil around 48 years of 6 years ago I started using the Wen products. Oh my what a difference it has made! I go back every now and then just to try something new but I always go back to Wen. It gives your hair defined soft curls, your hair grows longer because you don't have the breakage you do using shampoos., Just try it once you will never go back, they will give your money back if you don't care for it. check it out, you can only buy it over the Internet.
