Début d’année, c’est détox !

Beginning of the year, it’s detox time!

 

Every year, it’s the same thing! After the festive season, we’re told we need to detox.

The real question is: before or after the “galette des rois” and raclettes/fondues in the mountains? !

Seriously, it’s not a gimmick, and if all religions have been instituting periods of fasting for thousands of years, it’s because the body really needs to eliminate the toxins that accumulate, all the more so with the richness and transformation of our diet.

So how do we go about it?

Body detox techniques

The body is naturally equipped to eliminate toxins through the emunctories of the lungs, kidneys, liver and skin. But sometimes they are too clogged up and need to be helped to play their role to the full.

Without talking about complete fasting, without eating or drinking for at least 24 hours, we can list :

Intermittent fasting, which consists of alternating fasting and meals, fasting for 16 hours at a time. Or for 2 days out of 7.

Juice fasting: you drink only fresh vegetable and fruit juices for a certain period. All the essential nutrients are there, but fewer calories.

– On a lighter note, drink lots of water to eliminate toxins and waste, adding a few drops of lemon. Drink green tea or an infusion of fresh ginger, which is excellent for the digestive system.

Eat a diet rich in vegetables, fruit and antioxidants, and avoid sugar, fat, processed foods and alcohol.

– Get plenty of exercise, as sweating eliminates toxins.

– A hot bath with Epsom salts also makes you sweat.

     

    Skin detox

    It has its own natural mechanisms for evacuating toxins, because the skin is an organ of elimination. How does it do this? Through perspiration, sebum, desquamation of dead cells, micro-flora and even hair.

    But it is regularly saturated by our lifestyle, and needs a helping hand to regain its health, balance and radiance.

    Otherwise, the result is a dull, blotchy complexion, a lack of luminosity, a tired look and blemishes. But that’s not all!  Toxins contribute to oxidative stress, a major factor in accelerated ageing.

    So what can you do about it?

     

     

    TiL detox tips, "in & out"

    To be effective, a detox has to come from the outside as well as the inside.

    TiL skincare products are holistic, caring for the skin, the body and even the mind, just like the linden tree from which the brand originates.

    "Out" - Detoxing the skin

    Gentle, meticulous daily cleansing: no stripping, which stimulates imperfections, and no superficiality like micellar water, which is insufficient… We opted for a non-greasy texture, rinsed off with water, which gently but perfectly purifies the skin. What’s more, it removes make-up superbly.

    “La Gelée à Fleur de Peau”, our cleansing & makeup remover face gel, is a real gem, combining :

    – A super-desirable gel texture, divinely scented with linden blossom.

    – A 99% natural formula

    – Our exclusive active ingredient, Tiliactiv4® (linden blossom, leaves, buds and twigs), which is soothing, moisturising and anti-oxidant. The "cherry on the cake" is a small dose of AHAs, naturally contained in linden blossom, which gently exfoliate the skin and boost cell renewal. This is the secret of the radiance provided by our cleansing face gel.

    A tip: if your skin looks very clogged, take a steam bath before cleansing to help eliminate all the toxins by opening the pores.

    "In" - Internal detox, the body

    A true detox also involves the body, since the skin is its mirror.

    Of course, you need to follow all the basic rules: drink plenty of water, eat a healthy diet, be physically active, etc. But you also need to help your body by providing it with components that help it to eliminate toxins and waste.

    But you can also help your skin by giving it the ingredients it needs to eliminate toxins and waste products.

    “La Poudre Zéro Souci” is a Beauty Supplement designed to do just that: purify the body, restoring radiance to the skin.

    It is highly concentrated in :

    – Linden sapwood (the wood between the bark and the heart of the tree), which is so well-known for its detoxifying properties that it has been used for centuries for this purpose. It stimulates the work of the liver, regulates bile secretion and improves kidney function.

    – Burdock, with its recognized depurative virtues, helps the liver and digestion and purifies the body.

    Linden blossom, lemon balm, vitamin B6 and magnesium complete the formula to soothe the mind and promote sleep. Great for recovering from the festive season!

    A real treat in the evening, this delicious powder can be diluted in hot water or sprinkled on a dessert.

     

    The start of the new year can be a difficult time, and sometimes it’s hard to get going again, so it’s best to get back into shape as quickly as possible… A purified body, healthy, radiant skin, and you’re already feeling better.

    We wish you a year full of radiance!
