5 Ways to reduce your toxic load
Every day we encounter countless harmful substances in our every day lives. The term ‘toxic load’ refers to the accumulation of chemicals and substances in the body that are invested or absorbed through the skin.
Clean up your beauty
When was the last time you did a good clear out of your makeup and beauty products?? You are possibly holding on to products that won't be as effective anymore or worse are a lovely little home for harmful bacteria to live. Cant remember the last time you used something? Bin it! Make room for the products you love.
Ditch harsh cleaners
Ditch commercial perfumes
Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants differ not only by what they detoxify but also by their colour, so get in a range of differently coloured fruits and vegetables to get a range of detoxifying nutrients. Also, go organic where you can to minimise the level of pesticides.
Wash your fruits in veggies to remove chemicals. You can even use Apple cider vinegar in your water to clean them before consumption.
Avoid plastics and bottles ect that contain BPA. Start shopping smart with eco friendly reusable cups, bottles and straws.

Move your body
The skin is your ultimate detoxifier. Movement and sweat are a great way to remove toxins through the skin, and exercise can help get systems (i.e. circulatory, digestive and lymphatic systems) working and moving to help get rid of waste.
