With the changing of the season upon us, you might have noticed a dip in your energy levels that’s reflected in the texture or shear of your skin. While this is a normal (albeit usually unnoticed) occurrence as your body adjusts to the altering weather, there are several things you can do at home to help rejuvenate your body, boost your energy, and see improved results in your skin.
Considering that your body’s lymphatic system’s primary function is to cleanse your cells and bloodstream of toxins, you’d think it would be more capable of regulating than it actually is. When our bodies first start to recognize the change in weather, it triggers our body to preserve the nutrients in our body in preparation for new routines. However since we overwork our bodies with poor sleeping schedules or bad diets, the fluid in our lymphatic system loses its filtering effect, thus making us feel sluggish or appear less than our best.
It’s possible to flush out toxins from your lymph nodes by cleansing your body of any white flour products such as sugar, processed foods, preservatives, and food chemicals simply by upping the amount of water you consume (the simple trick is to drink half your bodyweight in ounces). Try making your own spa water by soaking cucumber, mint, and lemon in your water, or you can add turmeric powder to restore healthy elasticity to your skin.
The worst thing you can do to your body and skin, however, is to be physically inactive. Even general movement helps the fluids in the lymphatic system circulate and removes toxins stored in your body which can affect your heart and lungs. Getting your heart pumping will facilitate the cleansing process of your lymphatic system and make you feel energized once again.
