What have you heard about the many beauty benefits of periodically doing a detox to cleanse our body on a regular basis? It seems many women spend big bucks on their beauty while not realizing for pennies they can create better health, inner radiance and natural beauty. Are skin blemishes and conditions a natural part of life or can they be eliminated and reversed with some simple strategies?  A previous blog post addressed inflammation as one the root causes of chronic health issues including skin problems. Acne, blackheads, eczema and psoriasis are just some of the serious skin issues that cause many men and women serious self esteem and stress issues. Many people end up spending a fortune to attempt to correct or hide their skin issues and often make their health and skin worse in the long run.

While there are many ideas and theories on what is the main causes of skin challenges, allergens, inflammation and toxins are three of the most common reasons people struggle with skin issues. Many experts say it is from too much sun while some say it is not enough sun and Vitamin D. Some experts say it is from unhealthy foods and poor nutrition. Others say it can caused by anxiety, hormones and stress. Some say it is artificial chemicals and toxins in our bodycare products and environment that are major contributing factors. Some say it is the result of our genetics while others say it is our lifestyle. Maybe it is a combination of all these factors that results in inflammation and skin problems. The goal of this blog post is to provide seven simple suggestions to cleanse our body and claim our beauty.

Creating and maintaining natural beauty and health is a top priority for most of us therefore we must continually be rethinking and reviewing all aspects of our lifestyle, nutrition and skin care. After many approaches and considerable trial and error my current healthy skin success strategy is based on easy yet effective ways to cleanse our cells and cleanse our skin for outstanding skin health.

Stop Inflammation to Start Inner Beauty

LotionAll indications seem to be pointing to inflammation as a major factor for skin problems. Without healthy foods and lifestyle we set our body and skin up for problems. A mostly organic plant based whole foods diet combined with proper skin care can go a long way to helping many people be healthier and look better. My goal is to offer low cost simple suggestions that will help cleanse our body to reclaim our beauty.

While I experienced and studied the skin problems for many years it is amazing how much deception and misinformation there is regarding cleansing and skin care. Because our skin is our appearance to the world it has created billions of dollars for businesses wanting a piece of the action. Beauty shops, cosmetics, dermatologists, esthetician , magazines, plastic surgeons, spas, supplement all want a piece of the action for your money.
