Detoxification: A Natural Body Cleanse Process

 A normal person is exposed to a number of toxins and environmental hazards in a day. No matter you are staying in home environment or go outside the chemical danger is there for you. These toxic substances are nearby in whatever you eat or drink even whatever you inhale. Your body system, cells, organs, tissues and immune system negatively affect by the hazardous stuff. If you are feeling sluggish and tired then it’s the sign that your body may need a detox to purify and remove toxins. To live a healthy life, detoxification is the process that you need on a regular basis. It is a body cleansing process to prevent your body of harmful toxins. 

There is nothing complicated in natural body cleansing process. You just have to be keen and cautious in not putting anything unhealthy in your diet. It’s a misconception that a bizarre combination of all raw, uncooked, tasteless food is vital for cleansing your body. People focus on laxatives, colonics and a number of ‘flushing’ methods for a natural body cleanse which can do more harm than good to your body. Overuse of colonics or laxatives can cause infections and complications such as dehydration, laxative dependency or chronic constipation. Here are few tips to get maximum benefits from your body cleanse process:

As a first step you have to clean out your pantry, refrigerator and kitchen of any type of refined and processed food. Prepackaged and fast foods are not allowed during the process. You should avoid all refined sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and other processed items.

Focus on eating whole, organic foods. Get most of the required calories from fruits and vegetables. Stick with a combination of lean meat, nuts, grains, raw and fresh fruits, green vegetables, seeds, fish and essential fatty acids such as olive oil. Avoid adding a large amount of meat in your diet.

Stop all unnatural and unhealthy items to enter your body. Avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, soft drinks as well. It is also important to include natural soaps and shampoos in daily usage rather than any special kind of soap or shampoo.

Water is the key ingredient to focus throughout the cleansing process. Drink a lot of water from 32 to 64 oz per day. It’s better to focus on water and herbal teas rather than juices.

Regular Exercising is vital to release stress and tension from the life. Focus on yoga or any practice of deep breathing to relieve tension. Regular deep breathing practice will decrease toxins in your body. Aerobics and cardio exercises are also great stress relievers.

Top 5 Shaving Tips for African American Women

We do it every day. But shaving can be tricky when your skin doesn't always cooperate with you. This can be especially true for African American women like me. Just one wrong move and you can suffer for weeks. Here are 5 shaving tips that will help you get the best each time.
1. Shave after 6pm
Sounds weird, I know. But shaving should be done at night. Our skin does all of its healing and renewing while we sleep. And we are not subjected to damaging elements such as wind and sun rays.
At night, subconsciously we are in relaxation mode. We move around less so there's less skin-to-skin contact or rubbing against our skin. Freshly shaved skin is ultra-delicate. The less contact it has, the better.
2. Dare to Go Bare
Again, sounds weird. But it goes back to skin-to-skin contact. After shaving, our skin is very sensitive and prone to irritation. Friction from clothing just makes matters worse. Try to keep freshly shave areas free from clothing.
3. Remove Dead Skin
Exfoliating is a fancy way of saying removing dead skin. Taking time to exfoliate before shaving will create a smooth foundation for your razor. A smoother surface = less nicks. Just imagine roller skating on rocks - yeah, not good. Now, picture roller skating on a dance floor. That's what exfoliation does for shaving. It creates the perfect canvas for the razor "to roll."
3. Use Baby Oil
Baby oil and shaving are the perfect combination. Baby oil creates the perfect surface for the razor. It's slippery nature reduces tugging on the skin giving the razor more freedom to glide. The results are an incredibly easy shaving experience. Other shaving creams and gels are ok too. But I just adore the results I get with baby oil.
4. Rinse But Don't Repeat
Shave each area once - maybe twice. Shaving the same area repeatedly will irritate your skin. If you exfoliate first and use baby oil or shaving cream, you should not need to repeat many times. If you're finding yourself wanting to repeat an area then that's a pretty good indication your razor is dull and needs to replaced.
Orphaned hair can be annoying, I know. But fight the temptation to re-shave. The best thing to do is tweeze away anything that's left behind.
5. Let Your Hair Direct Traffic
Listen to your hair. The direction of growth will tell you which way to run the razor against your skin. You should never (ever) shave against your hair's growth pattern. If hair is growing downward, run your razor in a downward motion. The same applies for when hair grows upward or even sideways.
