Tips to detox
Your body is your temple. Treat it with love by taking care of it from the outside and inside. Sometimes a detox is exactly what the body needs to eliminate toxins, improve health, and promote strength. Fasting is the perfect way to begin your detox and here are a few tips of what you can do during Ramadan to detox your body healthily…
1. Drink lots of water after Iftar
In order to avoid dehydration this month, it’s crucial to drink as much water as you can after iftar to compensate for the lack of during fasting. Lack of water can cause your hair, skin, and nails to dry out. So drink up!
2. Wear SPF
Splatter on that SPF to protect your skin from too much sun which can dry out your skin and cause discoloration or sun spots. Also, it works as a barrier to any unwanted particles from air pollution to enter your pores.
3. Exfoliate weekly
Weekly exfoliation is great for removing any dead skin cells on the surface of your body. Especially during detox, all we want to do is detoxify. This is the external and physical way to do so.

4. Moisturize daily
Keep your skin moisturized at all times. This will avoid your skin from drying out and compensate for the lack of water consumption while fasting. This is especially important right after the shower while your pores are wide open.

5. Limit caffeine intake
This goes to all you tea and coffee addicts out there! Caffeine should definitely be limited during a detox. It doesn’t have any benefit beside keeping you alert which is only a perk at certain times. Otherwise it’s dehydrating, addictive, dries the mouth and puts you in a grumpy mood when unavailable so what’s the point?
6. Don’t forget your greens
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again! Vegetables are full of vitamins, water, nutrients and more. Eat as many greens as you can during iftar to get the energy you need for the next day while simultaneously nourishing your hair, skin, and nails and keeping you hydrated.
