Sometimes when I read this board I think to myself that people are just trying to do too much when a simple return to basics would do so much more for them.
Well balanced diet
- If you feel you are lacking in a particular food group such as vegetables for me, or eating too much of another (for me again is red meat) then you should look to balance it out more. I find that drastic attempts to change often don't last very long.. its the smaller incremental changes you make that you can live with over time will make the biggest difference.
- Just as bad as the modern fast food diet is to your body, so too is todays couch potato lifestyle. People who have desk jobs especially should go out and run a mile every other day. If you can't run, walk. Pick up a sport that fits your lifestyle. Something that is readily available whenever you need to exercise and stick to the plan.
- Between 7 to 8 hours would be ideal. If that is not possible, try and cut something out of your daily life to get at least 7 hours sleep. You can't make up for lost sleep during the week by sleeping 12 hours on the weekend. If you're getting less than 6 hours a day nothing you do at night (ie peels, topicals) can be more productive than just using that time to get more sleep. I had a terrible sleep cycle so I bought some Melatonin to help me sleep. It has done wonders.
- It is my strong opinion that all of these exotic cleanses and flushes will not do anything that simply drinking more water on a daily basis won't do. Drinking more water will flush more toxins out of your body and this is something all doctors and alternative medicine gurus out there can agree on. No need to over do it. Just think about drinking an extra cup or two every day.
I strongly believe once you have these basics in your life covered first - to the point that it is habitual and you don't have to focus any thought or energy into maintaining it, then you should think about all the other things that might further help you in your quest for healthy skin and peace of mind. Whether its a liver flush, or meditation or Yoga or certain hygiene programs, having these basics down will maximize the benefits all these other things are intended to bring.
