Toxins are all around us, affecting the way we feel and the way our complexion looks on a daily basis. Fortunately, ridding your body of these aggressors doesn’t have to mean committing to a week-long juice cleanse or a dangerously restrictive diet. There are daily ways to detox for a clearer complexion.
Incorporating simple, healthy choices is usually enough to give your body’s clean-up crew the nudge that it needs.
One of our favorite go-to detox remedies is sipping on a Lemon, Ginger and Turmeric Detox Tea before bedtime, when our bodies are most efficient at cell turnover. Here are the purifying benefits from this powerful trifecta:
Lemon: to heal and flush kidneys. Because it contains high levels of Vitamin C, it can also protect against environmental aggressors and free radicals.
Ginger: to serve as a natural anti-inflammatory and improve digestive health.
Turmeric: for its antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
