Detox Smoothies :
Make smoothies of fruits and green veggies like spinach, kale, beetroot, oranges, apples, pears, and kiwis etc. These are healthy and adding them to your regular diet can be a good choice. They help to stimulate the digestive tract and eliminate toxic wastes.
Dry Brushing Technique :
Skin is the major detoxifying organ and a process like dry brushing helps to remove the dead cells and toxins. It is simple and activates the sweat glands which secrete the toxins through sweat from the skin.
You can take a natural bristle brush or just a dry sponge and start dry brushing in a slow manner. Continue doing it for 10-20 minutes and then have a nice shower. Then nourish your skin with a mild moisturizer.
Magical Green Tea :
To help the body’s detoxification process, replace your regular coffee/tea with green tea. Its antioxidants and micronutrients make it a natural metabolism booster which induces weight loss.
Hence, try to drink 2-3 cups of green tea in routine. It comes in different flavors; you can select one according to your taste and choice.

Sweating helps to remove the extra salts and wastes from the body. Nothing is better than regular exercise to promote sweating. A 30 minutes workout in a day can power up your lungs.
