Detox Beauty Treatments
Detox treatments can rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. Here's how to create a homemade detox drink, two detoxifying salon treatments, and how to shop for products to pull those toxins out of your system.
"Toxins have a general tendency to age us. So, if we want to try to be younger and healthier, we want to remove those toxins so ur bodies can function better," says beauty expert Edward Sanchez, owner of Vanity Lounge. Edward shows us how to detox our bodies from head to toe. At his salon, guests are always offered a refreshing detox drink, and Edward shares the recipe with us. The recipe uses alkaline water, which has a pH of 8.8 or higher. Alkaline water can be purchased online, bought through a local health food store or even made at home with a special machine or tablets. Edward says alkaline water helps with irritation, calming and cooling the body. The recipe uses cucumber, which helps the lymphatic system, lemon, which breaks up mucus in the body, and mint, which helps the body detox by improving digestion. You'll need:
- Two gallons of alkaline water
- One whole sliced cucumber
- One sliced lemon
- One cup chopped mint
