Awaken your body from the lethargy of winter with this Homemade Pink Detox Scrub
Spring is the perfect time to detox. The winter months can be tough on our bodies. The cold weather, the heavier foods we eat during the cold season, and the fact that we may not get enough exercise can affect our digestive system, liver, and kidney functions. Even when we are as healthy as possible, additional life stressors can interfere with our body’s natural detoxification mechanisms.
You already know that from SCK, we advocate eating healthy all year round and that, therefore, the so-called detox diets have no place. In any case, if when we leave winter, we feel a little heavier than usual, or that we need to cleanse our body, this is the best time to do it.
And the same happens with our skin, which is the largest organ we have. The spring season can be a great time to pamper it and get prepared for summer. For this reason, today, we will share with you one of our favorite tricks: The Detox Scrub based on Pink Himalayan Salt.
If wondering why we are going to use Pink Himalayan. This type of salt, which is naturally pink in color and mined near the Himalayas in Pakistan, is known for having extraordinary benefits.
Many people claim that it is loaded with minerals and provides incredible health benefits. This is why pink Himalayan salt is often thought to be much healthier than regular table salt.
Some of the health properties of pink Himalayan salt that are commonly attributed to it include that it can:
Improve respiratory diseases.
Balance your body’s pH.
Reduce the signs of aging.
It enhances sleep quality.
Regulate blood sugar.
Regardless of the benefits attributed to this particular type of salt, salt, in general, is very effective in extracting toxins from the body, cleaning pores, and promoting wound healing. It is partly because salt contains some of the minerals and nutrients that we find naturally in our body, such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, or sodium. So it helps to balance us from the outside.
If it is difficult for you to find this type of salt, some alternatives could be salt from the Dead Sea in ??Israel or French or Celtic salt. The trick is always to check that it has been finely ground so that we do not get hurt by the fine crystals.
