So often we put so much emphasis on what skin care to use, what makeup to wear, or how we dress, we often forget beauty truly comes from the inside and is impacted by what we put into our bodies and how we treat it. Here are a few treatments and ideas to consider:
???? Drink Plenty of Water Drinking plenty of water will not only keep you healthy and hydrated on the inside but also beautify you on the outside. The daily recommended intake for men is 3.7 liters and for women it is about 2.7 liters. The benefits of drinking plenty of water include significantly improving your energy level and brain function, aiding in weight loss, and reducing constipation. Beauty benefits include reducing the appearance of acne, keeping your skin hydrated and plump, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and slowing the aging process.
The human body is made up of about 60% water. Personally, I try to drink a gallon of water a day.
⛄Cryotherapy This “cold therapy” exposes the body to extremely cold temperatures for a short period of time. Whole body cryotherapy involves standing in a cryo-chamber (with an opening for your head) around 3 minutes at negative 200+ degrees Fahrenheit. Cryotherapy can be used to treat dermatitis and other skin conditions. Other benefits may include muscle recovery, weight loss, mood elevation, better sleep and reduced migraine pain.
???? Flotation Therapy This relaxation technique uses a high concentration of specific salts in a special pool or pod of water, creating an antigravity feeling and replenishing minerals in the body while floating. Benefits include reduced anxiety and stress, pain relief, and an increased ability to focus.
????Juicing and Cleansing involves drinking only fruit and vegetable juices and can help reset your gut, reducing the amount of intake and stress on the gut. This gives your body time to recharge and heal while taking in essential vitamins and phytonutrients. Benefits are brighter, glowing skin, longer healthy nails and hair, more energy and increased weight loss.
Many delicious recipes can be found online that will keep you right on track with your juice cleanse.
Colonics Therapy utilizes water to flush out and remove excess waste from the large intestines. Benefits to colonics therapy are improved concentration, more energy, and better digestion. Colonics therapy promotes detoxification of the body, reduces bloating, and strongly supports weight loss. Look for a certified professional.
???? Regular Exercise It’s no secret that exercising on a regular basis can keep you looking lean, trim and tone, but there are so many other health benefits to exercising on a regular basis. Exercising combats diseases and health conditions, boosts energy and improves mood. It also promotes better sleep and puts a spark in your sex life. It is recommended to exercise at least 4-5 times a week to maximize a healthy balance.
????Vitamin IV Drip Therapy This is no doubt one of the most popular trends in health and wellness. The process normally takes about 45 minutes, and the name says it all. Different cocktails of vitamins are introduced to your system via IV drip. The cocktail you choose depends on the needs you are trying to address. The benefits of utilizing vitamin IV therapy are improved immune health, boosted energy levels, improved symptoms of depression, and better mental clarity and cognitive function. Some providers will even come to your home.[/vc_column_text]
