Use your vacation as a time to detox

Use your vacation as a time to detox

 

Pollution is all around us, which is why many people use natural detox products to fight off the effects of these toxic substances in the body. Vacation is a time to rest and refresh, which also makes it a good opportunity to detox. Recently, Luxury Travel Magazine published an article explaining some of the best ways to detox while taking a holiday.

To begin, the news source stated that a good way to avoid jet lag and begin a vacation detox is to get a good night's sleep before a flight, drink plenty of water and eat a vegetarian meal on the plane. Also, pack healthy snacks such as fresh fruit and raw nuts.

Ditch the chemicals

For people who smoke, vacation may be a good time to begin the process of quitting. To truly detox the body, individuals need to limit the amount of chemicals they consume and inhale. Giving up cigarettes may not only improve the health of a smoker, but also that of people around them. According to the American Cancer Society, tobacco smoke contains more than 7,000 chemical compounds. When individuals light up, they are exposing everyone around them to these chemicals.

Luxury Travel Magazine also recommends swapping out soda for healthier options while on vacation as a part of a detox.

"Ditch the alcohol and diet soda: If you're vacationing in tropical surroundings, take advantage by ordering fresh-squeezed fruit and green veggie juices instead. These will hydrate your body and skin and [may] give you natural protection against sunburn and mosquito bites," according to the news source.

Go veggie

The information provider also suggests that while on vacation people should stick to an all-vegetarian diet, particularly while visiting other countries. Many ethnic cuisines contain exotic vegetables, whole grains and legumes that are a good source of fiber, which may help detox the body.

Sweat it out

While staying at a hotel, try to remove some of the toxins from your body by taking advantage of the gym. Active.com suggests that when people take a trip they bring a pedometer and aim for 10,000 steps a day while they are touring a new place.

Finally, a vacation is a time for people to treat themselves to something nice, so individuals should consider a spa treatment to improve their appearance while they are detoxing on the inside.
