Sweat It Out Skin!

Hello to all, I hope this blog post finds you extremely well! Wherever you are enjoying summer months!

I am in Canada near Toronto so the summer is beautiful and I don’t want it to be over as autumn now slowly approaches us!

So I’m soaking it up even if it means through sweat!

Let’s talk about sweating it out!

I’m not talking about sweating out nerves or anxiety.

I am going to shed some light on sweating and how it is good for our skin and body. The good sweat it out sort of speak!

Sweat it out Skincare! …. Oh I like that!

CLEANSING EFFECT

When your skin experiences a good sweat it is cleansing itself of toxins from the deep pores.

Strenuous activity, sauna time, sitting out just sweating it out in the sun while you walk, sit, run/staying active; read, sail, visit outside with friends and family.

Have you ever just basked in the sun with no complaints and just let the exocrine sweat just drip away while staying hydrated?

I hope of course!

WHAT MAKES US SWEAT?

Just keep in mind that even feelings of tension, excitement, stress and anxiety can cause us to sweat too.

This can happen also through the foods and drinks we choose to consume such as coffee can increase anxiety therefore increase sweat production.

Yes we need to focus on how we are sweating too.

Many benefits that sweat regulates our temperature by releasing salt and water through our sweat.

Drip Sweat To Drip off Pounds?

I use to really think that sweating was a huge contributor for losing pounds but what I came to realize was it was mostly watered weight that comes off.

It really isn’t a huge, distinct, measurable amount of pounds/ calories!

If you begin to hydrate yourself once again and eat; you’re pretty much putting on the weight you’ve lost. Therefore, another reason to be conscious of my output vs input and/or vice versa.

After I sweat it out a lot! I’m not going to line up for a huge, hefty burger or something heavy on my stomach sort of speak!

This is where I choose a fruit/veggie super food smoothie or a salad.

As far as sweating goes what makes us cringe about it?

Why have we grown to not like our sweat?

Sure, it may have a distinct stench to it at times but it also tells us that,  once again our bodies are amazing at excreting out when we need to cool down!

I find myself wearing layers of clothing on some days due to not knowing how the weather will turn out in the midst of summer to fall.

Heating up our face in a sauna or steamed bathroom opens pores trying to extract through the skin by massaging your face!

Sweat It Out Tea Please!

Hot tea on a hot day. You’re a tea sweat away.

Tea withstands coffee and I am a superb coffee drinker as much as anyone!

I love the way it smells, how you feel when you take your first sip but when consciously aware I also know that coffee will never be enough!

I tend to impulse for coffee so it can have control over me if I don’t tell it to back off sometimes!

Like coffee, Sorry but, I got this without you.

Thank You Tea.

There are options!

Therefore, I put coffee on the top shelf out of reach sort of speak and embrace tea.

Tea undoubtedly hydrates you! (Caffeine Free of course).

Oh yes even on the hottest day!

Count in your antioxidants and improve your calmer moods to a tea! Ha!

Conscious of my coffee impulses;

I find sweating out to tea is a better option towards a healthier me anyways in the long run.

Sweating may sound not so appealing but it reaks (no pun intended)

Of great benefits for you like zapping zits away, detoxifying your body ramps

Up your feel good natural endorphins, aid in flushing out kidney stones and much more!

Autumn is a side step away and starting a day with tea instead of coffee is possible change in gears.

Let us pull a full stop once tea for just a minute or two please shall we? Did you know there is a herbal tea for every mood you may be experiencing?

Yes.

Feeling heightened anxiety or anxious?

Chamomile Tea.

Feeling consistent anger or you’re feeling just angry?Lemon or Orange Pekoe

Orange Pekoke Or Lemon Tea.

Feeling like you need a pick me up in the sense of more energy?

Black Tea.

Feeling down or depressed like symptoms?

Lemongrass Tea.

Feeling more tension and stressed out?     

Chamomile.

Feeling a tad restless/uneasy?

Peppermint Tea.

Feeling like you need more sleep?

Lavender Tea.

Feeling really tired and need to get going?

Green Tea.

Feeling heightened anxiety or really anxious?

Tart Cherry Tea.                          

Dandelion Root Tea/Dandelion Steeped Tea/Drink definitely has beneficiary ailments to your mood, well-being  and beyond! 

These are just a selective taste of these teas available to you to give a try consistently and see how they resonate with you and help alleviate some of your moods/state of being.

 

Sweating has and will continue to be a part of your rest of your life! Might as well embrace it, seek and realize that the sweat is good for you apart of some of the things I asked you to consider looking into in this blog as far as excessive sweating noted above.

Sweat it out skin is all about replenishing your body.

Working off that stress/tension built up in your busy working body amongst the constant flow within the habit called ‘life’.

Try teas, instead of coffees to aid in the vibrant flow of smoother circulation as you sweat out yourself! 🙂

Less sugar intake or no sugar intake can also help you get past the sugar withdrawals/cravings your body may experience as well!

I hope this blog has created a better outlook when it comes to your sweat and if it captures your awareness on how beautiful sweating really is; then I’m humbled.

I always say during your workout or dance performance/active lifestyle;

Could You imagine how we all would feel if our bodies were not built this way?

For Instance, if we didn’t sweat at all?!

What would that truly feel like?

Would you exercise as much?

How would you be able to cool down?

In just that,

I am honoured and grateful to sweat out and give my skin and body the cleansing it deserves!

As always, feel free to comment and elaborate on this blog and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Until Next Time,

Sincerely,

Patricia Divine Essence

  1. It’s very true that sweating Is good for the skin and human health in general, this is one fact that some people don’t tend to understand, that’s why they always put themselves under breeze conditions like AC and fans in order to keep cool. Releasing toxins from the skin is making it clean. It is good that you shared this sensitizing information.

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by!

      It really cleanses it’s yes! I am even learning in the midst of feeling intensely hot to just embrace it! 

      Much Love,

    1. Yes thanks for mentioning that! Stress response activates our circulatory system etc!

      Thank you for reading!

  3. Sweating is integral to our health as it helps us in a number of ways especially by making us relieved of unnecessary body restrictions and all. Thank you so much for sharing all these ways of sweating out all the body wastes and all. Thank you so much and I value it. Especially the way you have explained the use of tea and the teas that can be used too. Good one

  4. I must say there is nothing so relaxing and cleansing as a good sauna.  All of your pores open and you really “sweat it out”!  Another thing I love is a good hot bath with lovely steam on my face.  My skin is just glowing after either of these treatments.  I’ve now switched away from coffee, too.  Actually, hot tea on a hot day doesn’t make you sweat but actually helps to cool you!  Tea is so very good for you.

    1. Hello and thanks for sharing!

      I want to know more about the steam in the hot bath!!?

      I also have tremendously cut coffee almost right out! For me, coffee is now an indulgence I will have every once in awhile coming from a person who drank it everyday. 
      I will totally agree with you the loose leaf tea and blends are so good for you and enriched my soul!! I also put tea blends on my face as a wash, spritzer (cool off-summer days) and like a toner type thing. 
      so many benefits! Gives me my glow. 💕

      Much Love,

  5. Hi Patricia

    I really enjoyed reading your post. I was lucky to visit Toronto this year, just before Fall, and I must say I love the city, I had wonderful time visiting downtown Toronto by walking with one of my sons, as he was the one who invited me to spend one week there.

    He did everything by walking, around 20,000 steps per day, we visited so many places and I must tell you, I sweated a lot. when I came back home I noticed I lost a little bit more of 2 kg.

    I also loved your article as I’m a tea lover, so today I have better information about tea benefits to help anyone to sweat and to purify the body, I will follow your advice to drink tea on hot days too.

    Thank you for sharing great and healthy information. 

    1. Hello! That is so awesome that you got to do that with your son!

      There are so many amazing places to visit and walk too in our amazing city of Toronto! 🙂

      I am humbled and so proud that you lost 2kg! 
      Yes teas in the heat is so good! You just got to adapt to it. It’s very relaxing too!

      Thank you so much for stopping by!

      Happy New Year and much love,

  6. Hello Patricia, this is one very educational post worth reading. Sweating is one very important aspect of the body metabolism and for some people who are not very familiar with the importance of sweating they don’t take what can help them sweat these toxic substances out of their body. I am familiar with this tea and I would live to start taking more of it. Cheers.

    1. Hello and yes incredibly so. 

      Thank you for taking the time to read and share your thoughts. 

      Much Love,

  7. Thanks for the reminder, Patricia.

    A good session in the the sauna is exactly what I need today. 

    For many crazy reasons, it’s been too long since my last one. I used to relax in the sauna almost every Sunday morning after my cardio workout. 

    I agree that it’s not a method for losing weight but all that wonderful heat is a real benefit for the skin. 

    I have cut back a lot on my coffee, and I now enjoy a hot tea more often than not. I am also including hot broths and clear soups as coffee and tea substitutes. 

    How often do you sauna bathe? 

    I also live in the land of ice and snow. It sure feels good to spend my first 20 minutes in a sauna. 

    How long do you spend in a session?

    What is the ideal temperature? 

    Paul

    1. Hello Paul and thanks for stopping by!

      A usual sauna session I try to stay in for 20min. 
      I don’t know the exact temperature. Thats a good question. It’s usually set up already where I sauna. (Gym) 

      I use to try to sauna almost every other day. Now with my most recent move I haven’t went in a sauna for awhile now. In time I’ll be back at it again! If I cannot get to a real sauna I use my washroom as one while running a hot shower and let the steam do its thing. 🙂

      I do that as well. Use broth type soups as tea. Anything warm and soothing. While eliminating psycho-stimulant known as coffee. Loll 

      Much Love,

  8. Talking about sweat, if I am having fever, I used some Chinese herb, put in a bucket and pour in boiling water, sit on a chair with the bucket just at the bottom of the chair. Cover myself with a blanket. Let the heat from the herbs and hot water to make me sweat and my body can release the heat from my body. Do it once or twice a day, after 2 days, I can recover from the fever without pills. 

    Regarding tea, there is a Chinese tea which is very effective to cure headache, body fatigue, common cold, throat irritation, influenza headache, coughs, called 24 herbal tea. It helps reduce the heat in body and cool down the body. This one is also good one as it’s more convenient. 

    1. Wow!! Thanks for stopping by and sharing this information!!

      I haven’t tried this and it sounds amazing!!

      I’m going to have to look into this now. 24 hour herbal tea(Chinese) got it!

      Awesome. Thank you so much. 

      Much Love,

      Patricia Maragos/ Patricia Divine Essence
