There are a number of different ways to make homemade detox treatments that will deal with your skin, your weight, and overall look. Each of these detox treatments will have a slightly different effect, but most of them will ensure that the body is healthy and not struggling to keep up with the demands of modern life. Most of these come in the form of detox water recipes the combine the cleansing power of water with other properties found in different fruits and vegetables.
To begin making any kind of detox drink, first get a pitcher or bottle that is capable of infusing water with fruit or vegetables. These will normally include something to hold the items so that they will not come out when pouring, but some people prefer to keep them loose, allowing them to flow into the cup or bottle as they are being poured.
The ingredients should not be packed tightly, but should instead be put in lightly, ensuring that there is enough room for water to get between them and begin to take on the properties of the additives being used. These should cover about 1/4th of the bottom of the bottle or fill the infuser tube.
The next step is to pour half a container of ice over, taking care again to ensure that water will be able to penetrate. Most people find that larger cubes work better for this as their weight begins to crush the items int he bottom, forcing them to release their juices. A typical home ice maker works well, as does filtered water being put into normal trays.
Everything is then covered with water to the top of the pitcher and put into the fridge to infuse for at least 1 hours. Some people like allowing it to rest for 3 hours to ensure a full flavor, but that is not always necessary.
The items put into the bottom can be re-used at least once, but sometimes they can be reused up to 3 times. If they color is lighter or the flavor is not satisfying, it is time to change everything out. Depending on the diet being followed, the same ingredients may be used in each pitcher or they can be changed out to optimize the different benefits.
Some popular combinations are apples and cinnamon, cucumbers and citrus fruits, watermelon and mint or strawberry and mint, and blueberries with lavender. Each of these is to be drank without adding and kind of sugar and should not be taken with food. Instead they should be drank ahead of a meal or after, to ensure that they have adequate time to work. They will work best when lots of fiber is consumed at meal times, ensuring that the system is better able to function.
Following these tips will ensure that homemade detox treatments are able to work in the way that they should and that they are not going to cause harm. Overall, they are mostly ways for water to help cleanse the body and have a boosted effect with the help of natural ingredients.
