The Summer Cleanse

Feeling the Heat of Summer

Summer is one of the best seasons; after months of cold or wet weather, people are craving the sun on their face and warm weather. People seem more relaxed and happier during these few months. BUT the heat, dehydration and indulging in salty or sweet treats can cause bloating. To beat the bloat, here are a few products and food tips to keep your body trim and skin glowing.

GSN carries two products that are great for detoxification -the Advanced Cleansing Formula and the Advanced Diuretic Formula.

The Cleansing Formula specifically targets free radical damage and increase the enzymes in our body that naturally chelates toxins. It also protects and cleanses the liver and supports the digestive system.

  • It is so important not to take laxatives for cleansing purposes as they do not induce detoxification. They just weaken and aggravate the intestines so the waste moves faster through them.
  • Doing a detox can be like a metabolic reset so that we can feel re-energized, release toxins and help our bodies process daily stress.
  • Free radicals can create toxic build up in our system and slow things down due to oxidative stress and inflammation.
  • Food, stress, environment and chemicals that we consume or are around everyday create these toxins that cause havoc in our bodies which can effect our skin, metabolism, sleep, digestion and energy levels.

Nutricosmetics and Photo-Protection

Nutricosmetics are often described as “supplements,” but unlike true supplements, they are not intended to supplement deficiencies in the body; rather, they are designed to have highly targeted benefits to the skin, improving its health and appearance.

In particular, Nutricosmetics have been clinically proven to offer some protection from ultraviolet rays from sun exposure (like our Advanced Skin Brightening Formula). The sun is the main external cause to aging skin and pigmentation. Ultra violet rays create free radicals on the surface of the skin which can break down collagen and elastin, create dehydration and cause uneven skin tone. In fact one of the main things you can do to have healthy, youthful skin is stay out of the sun….and the sooner you start this, the better.

Does the secret to clear skin live in your liver?

If you want to improve your skin, you can start by looking at your gut, since digestive health directly impacts your complexion. (Just look at what happened when I quit dairy.) But did you know the liver also has a hand in tons of epidermal issues?

That’s right, the organ that’s best known for breaking down alcohol is also intimately connected to skin function.

7 Things to Know Before Taking a Beauty Supplement

If only you could pop a pill to make all your skin and hair woes magically disappear, right? It turns out you could—well, sort of.

Lucky for us, these “magic pills” are no longer figments of our collective imagination. They now exist and most of them have real science behind them. Nutricosmetics. Beauty supplements. Skin food. Hair and nail vitamins. Whatever you name it, they all make clear skin, shiny hair and healthy nails possible by giving your body an extra boost of nutrients you are otherwise not getting from food.

To learn more about how beauty supplements work—and to get some tips on how to choose the right one for you—we spoke with Corina Crysler, one of North America’s leading natural health product experts and Co-Founder and formulator of GliSODin Skin Nutrients. Here are seven things we learned from her.
