Why is External Detox So Important? Read About Mei Zen Skin Care Chen Pi Body Oil

Posted

Detox is a word we hear often. Simply put, detox, or detoxification, commonly refers to the practice of removing toxins from the body. We usually hear about the importance and methods of internal detox, namely cleanses.

External practices of detoxification are important in achieving overall health.

Our skin is our largest organ and receives about a third of all of the blood circulated in the body. Stimulation of the circulatory system can improve balanced fat distribution and the skin’s overall health. Stimulation also helps when it comes to cellulite.

Methods of External Detoxification:

  • Exercising helps you sweat, and sweating helps discharge toxins through your skin.
  • Meditation promotes a clear mind that can reduce the effects of stress on the body. Stress can be extremely toxic and can lead to a poorly functioning body.
  • Vigorous massaging and skin brushing help rid the skin of dead skin cells promoting the regeneration of new skin. These methods also stimulate blood circulation, the lymphatic system, and help enrich toxin elimination. 

Stimulating blood circulation and the lymphatic system are key in detoxification.

Mei Zen Skin Care Chen Pi Body Oil is designed to improve these functions. Chen Pi Body Oil is vigorously rubbed into areas of concern (for example, the stomach), and since the skin is affected by topical treatments, the herbs in Chen Pi Body Oil aid in detoxification as well as other important benefits to overall health:

  • Citrus Peel (Chen Pi) – helps eliminate stagnation. In Chinese medicine, fat is considered to be stagnation so moving it by vigorous massage may metabolize it faster.
  • Rosemary Oil – helps detox and bloating
  • Grapeseed Oil (Vitamin E) – helps keep skin firm and smooth
  • Cypress – helps remove fat via the urination process

Formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Phthalates, Endangered Plants or Minerals or Gluten

How to Use:

Put a small amount on the area to be massaged and vigorously massage the area to move stagnation.

What About Cellulite?

Mei Zen Skin Care Chen Pi Body Oil can also be used in conjunction with the Chinese therapy called Gua Sha for treatment of cellulite. Gua Sha is used by Chinese Medicine Practitioners. Liniment (in this case, Chen Pi Body Oil) is put on the skin and a smooth edged tool is used to slide it along the affected area.

The motion of Gua Sha increases oxygen and blood flow to the treated area and stimulates the body's own healing systems – keys in detoxification and the road to overall health.
