(NaturalNews) For years, cosmetic products companies have been telling us that healthy skin can be attained by applying products on the outside of the body. Once a person has educated oneself about the source of true health, they find that these commercially driven claims aren't entirely accurate. The true key to vibrant, glowing skin can only be found on the inside of the body, more specifically, within certain organs and the cells. Vibrant, healthy skin can be yours by following these three key steps:
Key One: Cleanse the liver
Next to the skin, the liver is the largest organ in the body. Its main function is detoxifying the blood and keeping toxic sludge from building up in the tissues and bloodstream. Our livers are overtaxed today due to our polluted and toxic environment, GMO foods, fluoride in drinking water, prescription meds, industrial chemicals and vaccines, to name a few toxin sources. Although the liver has an enormous capacity for processing toxic materials, it can still be overloaded; therefore, it is important to clean it out. Detoxifying the liver with natural remedies will result in renewed energy levels, sharper mental focus, improved digestion and clearer skin. Here are a few of nature's most effective remedies for liver detoxing: borututu bark, milk thistle, dandelion root, turmeric, chicory root and chanca piedra.
Key Two: Cleanse the colon
Cleansing the colon is one of the most critical things you can do to experience vibrant health and glowing skin. The bottom line is that, due to dietary issues, eating too fast and modern food combinations, almost everyone has extra gunk lodged in the walls of the colon. This fecal matter must be removed if one is to experience vibrant health. There are different colon cleanses available today to help a person cleanse their colon safely and comfortably. Here are a few:
Fiber cleansers use plant-based fiber to naturally cleanse the colon. Fiber cleansers can be found in both soluble and insoluble forms. They work by bulking up as they travel through the digestive tract, sweeping the intestinal walls along the way. Some fiber types also feed the friendly bacteria that reside in the intestinal tract, thereby promoting overall digestive wellness.
Colonics are basically a deep enema. It is done by inserting a plastic tube into the rectum which is used to flush gently with pure, warm water. Many people are uncomfortable with the idea of this, but it is a very effective method of cleaning the walls of the colon. (Think: Vibrant skin! Vibrant skin!)
Bentonite clay is typically used to cleanse the colon in a clay cleanse. It is a natural clay that, when ingested, helps escort toxins out of the body. Bentonite clay is effective for colon cleansing but can have strong laxative effects.
Key Three: Exercise
Okay, so we all know that exercise is great for our cardiovascular health, but as it turns out, it's also an important key to a healthy complexion. Anything that promotes healthy circulation in turn keeps your skin healthy and vibrant. Exercise increases blood flow, which helps nourish skin cells and keep them vitalized. Contrary to popular belief, exercise doesn't detoxify the skin; that job belongs to the liver. But by increasing blood flow, it helps to carry waste products, such as free radicals, away from working cells and flushes cellular debris out of your system, cleaning your skin from the inside out.
