We are all exposed to toxins and environmental pollutants on a daily basis. In fact, toxins and chemicals can be found in almost everything – antiperspirants, cosmetics, plastic bottles, plastic food containers, cleaning products, perfumes, and even on our produce. Long-term exposure to these toxins and chemicals poses a hidden health threat. Although our body is capable of detoxifying itself, there is always a need to get rid of the toxins that may build-up in our body. As such, you need to learn new ways on how to detox your body at home.

With information being easier to come by, people are starting to educate themselves on how to live a healthier life and learn natural detox techniques. But we’d like to emphasize that detoxing isn’t limited to the trendy juice cleanse. In fact, there are several ways on how to detox your body.

In this blog post, we listed down some simple and natural ways on how to detox your body and feel good from the inside and out. Feel free to try any of the methods listed below and see which one works best for you.

24-hour liquid detox cleanse

If you are keen to implement a rapid detoxification program, this one is for you. The 24-hour liquid detox cleanse gives your body a chance to rest from unhealthy and hard-to-digest foods. It gives you the kick you need to get back on the healthy track. This would be very helpful for those who frequently consume processed foods, greasy foods, and other unhealthy foods.

According to studies, juicing organic fruits and vegetables can help improve digestion, boost the immune system, and reboot your digestive system. In addition, it also helps increase the elimination of surface toxins and waste build-up present in the blood and lymph.

In this method, you will have to completely cut out all dairy products, processed and sugary foods from your diet. To get your required nutrients, make sure you include solid and raw foods into your diet. In addition to juices, you may consume salads, soups made from vegetables, smoothies, nuts, whole food snacks and lean meat. During the cleansing period, we recommend that you avoid coffee. Avoid the afternoon slump by drinking a cup of green tea.

Although this method may actually help remove toxins from the body, experts recommend sticking to a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle. This produces better results and are often more successful than short-term detox.

Add detoxifying foods to your daily diet

Instead of a radical dietary change, we recommend that you incorporate some detoxifying foods into your daily diet. While you’re at it, you may also want to limit consumption of foods that could cause toxin build-up. These foods will give your liver a helping hand in detoxifying the body and get rid of the toxins naturally.

Lemon

If you have already tried some cleansing juices before, you have probably noticed that many of these cleansing juices contain lemon. This is because lemon is considered as one of the best natural cleansers. It helps speed up the cleansing process by flushing built-up wastes and toxins in your body.

For best results, we highly recommend that you drink lemon water first thing in the morning. Not only will it provide a little immune system boost, it will also help rehydrate the body and flush out toxins.

Kale

Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables you can put on your plate. It is a super-healthy green leafy vegetable that is high in calcium, vitamin A, vitamin K, iron, and fiber. It is low in calorie, has zero fat, and is filled with powerful antioxidants. But did you know that kale is also a great detoxifier?

Kale contains a powerful substance called isothiocyanates (ITCs), which have been shown to help detoxify your body at the cellular level. These ITCs acts as a powerful “one-two punch” against free radicals and toxins, and helps eliminate them from your body.

You don’t have to be on a cleanse to incorporate kale into your daily menu. You can turn this super food into chips, soup, smoothies, stew, and even side dish.

Garlic

Garlic does not directly flush out toxins from the body, but it is a useful adjunct to detoxification. Glutathione is crucial for detoxification in the liver. Your body uses up more and more glutathione as you detoxify. Garlic helps your body produce its own glutathione,

Glutathione is not something we can get from food. Rather, our body produces it itself. Incorporating garlic into your daily diet is an efficient way to raise your glutathione levels. To be able to fully enjoy the benefits of garlic, it should be consumed raw.

Drink lots of water

We all know that drinking water is beneficial to our overall health. It promotes proper functioning of the organs, contributes to clear skin, and helps flush out your system naturally. In spite of this, a lot of people don’t drink enough water.

If you are looking for an easy way on how to detox your body, it’s drinking water. This will help you cleanse your body without affecting your diet. By simply drinking 1.5 liters of water a day, you can flush out all the unwanted toxins through your urinary tract. Teamed with timing your drinks, there is no limit to your ability to detox your body.

If you’re not fond of drinking water, you are free to add some fruits like raspberries, melon, cucumber or lemon to boost the taste. Detox water has become very popular over the past years. Not only does it taste delicious, it can also give you an extra dose of vitamins. Plus, it can also help flush your system of toxins and even help you lose weight. Since it tastes great, it helps you increase your daily intake of water.

Exercise regularly

Exercise is a key component for staying healthy. A sedentary body doesn’t function as well as an active one. When the body is stagnant, its components tend to be stagnant as well.

Regular exercise will help speed up your metabolism, prevent the development of certain diseases, and help you shed some pounds. Exercise also plays a role in the detoxification process by pushing toxins out of your body through sweat. According to studies, those who exercise regularly have fewer toxins in their system. No matter how busy you are, try to squeeze in at least 30 minutes of exercise into your daily routine.

Dad style is cool right now. Everything in men’s wear today is freer and looser, and pleated shorts fit right in there. Believe it or not, it is dominating the market.

“Don’t base your decisions on the advice of those who don’t have to deal with the results.”

~Anonymous

 

As much you try to apply the numerous logic that others and life throw at you when you are feeling low, nothing seems to work out. All the affirmations and the strategies aimed at bringing up oneself and motivating to feel better – they all fail. It is not always women who feel low, men too have both ups and down in life that takes them on a roller coaster ride of being low and excited in the various situations. In fact, women are the ones who know how to express their feelings but the dudes find it quite difficult holding on too strong which results in feeling low.

Talking about advice, which definitely keeps coming in from all the ends but all aren’t as useful as they should be. It is being peaceful within that can help someone come back to the surface with a bang.

“Be positive” is the new way to tell someone that everything will be okay and also to motivate them and cheer them up. The truth is – it doesn’t work! It never did and it will never help anyone who is already preoccupied with other things and thoughts. It is more or less telling someone that you should feel better now because I have motivated you quite a lot. And it’s downright annoying and useless to be told it again.

Now the question is – if being positive isn’t the right advice when someone is feeling low, what should be done?

Don’t talk about it a lot

Image Source:www.clipd.com

It is like reliving the stressful moment again and again when you talk about it to not one or two but a number of people. Talk about it to those who can actually provide a solution to the problem rather than listening, giving not-so-useful advice and spreading the word like wildfire among others. So, it is better to keep it to limited people who matter.

 

Choose between fight or fly

Image Source:www.clipd.com

When you/someone is in a bad mood and feeling really low, there are a thousand things constantly going in your head. From how to feel energetic to should I stay the same with the same mood, everything keeps on hitting your head making you more confused. Now you have to segregate the thoughts crawling in your head into – whether you want to fight or flight from the problem. The flight mode works just like your smartphone does. It blocks all the access to calls, messages, and ways for others to reach to you. It is a temporary method to run from the problems. Hence, fighting and overcoming is what you must look out for.

 

Accepting what comes to you – but letting go

Image Source:www.thepositivitysolution.com

When you are in the flight mode, you know  that someday or the other you have to come to the society and family set up. It would be useless to stay aloof from others. You must let anything that comes to you come, but make sure you let go of the things that bring sadness in your life. In fact, you cannot stop the negativity to flow in but you always have the option to let go of things. Do that!!

 

Dress well to keep yourself content

When you shop, things around you get brighter! You must have heard this before because this is absolutely true. When you pay attention to yourself, pamper yourself with handsome outfits, pleasing men’s underwear, complementing accessories, you feel good from within. You should indulge in this when skies turn gray for you.

 

Meditation helps you focus on life

You cannot deny the benefits of meditation! Can you? Well, it is the most basic, fruitful and result-oriented method to make someone feel better. If you are struggling with something, try meditation and the different ways to do it right. The results will be fabulous.

Believe it or not, getting dressed in the morning isn’t just a problem women face. In fact, a lot of men would look at their wardrobe and struggle every morning, not knowing what to put on. They want to make a better first impression, but there are only limited choices out there. Plus, most men’s street style revolves around whatever is trendy this season.

Mainstream fashion changes too fast. New fashion trends are being introduced almost every season. The average men can’t afford to change their wardrobe every season. That said, we highly recommend that you shop for pieces that isn’t specific to any given season. The good news is that men’s street style tends to lean toward staple pieces. They are versatile and comfortable, which makes them ideal for everyday wear.

For men who wants to keep it casual but don’t want to look lousy, this men’s style guide is for you. To give you an inspiration for your next look, we have collated some of the best men’s street style ideas you need to try.

Dark jeans

Men’s wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a good pair of jeans. They are a staple in men’s street style. They are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own and works well with almost every outfit.

A lot of people see jeans and shirt as sloppy. Whether you like it or not, men’s street style plays a huge part of men’s fashion. That means, you don’t need to give up your jeans any time soon.

To upgrade your jeans game this season, we highly recommend that you invest in high quality jeans. That means simple, dark colored, straight legged, and free from wear and tear. Dress things up a notch by pairing your denim jeans with a short or long-sleeved shirt. If you want to keep things a bit casual, opt for plain-colored shirt and pair it with rugged accents. No logos or graphics. Also, make sure that it fits perfectly. Men’s street style is about looking rugged without looking sloppy.

Bold printed shirts

Printed shirts are a huge trend this year. In fact, almost every high street brand and store carries men’s bold print shirts. It’s impossible to walk down the street without seeing someone wearing a printed shirt. Floral prints, Hawaiian shirts, stripes, and even polka dot prints are everywhere.

If you are looking for a casual date ensemble that would give off a good impression, then look no further. Printed shirts are a great way to add a subtle edge or statement to men’s style. But if you decide to make it the center piece of your outfit, then we highly recommend that you keep the rest of your outfit simple. You don’t want to give people a headache. Pair it with denim jeans or chino pants and a pair of white canvas sneakers. This summer, you may also put on some sunglasses to complete the look.

When done right, printed shirts can transform an outfit. The key is to find the right shirt for you and wear it with confidence. Awkwardness is difficult to hide. Any kind of second guessing will make you look uncomfortable.

Monochrome prints

For those who aren’t brave enough to rock the printed and patterned shirts, try monochrome.  Here, clothes are featured in traditional patterns like gingham and stripes, which allows you to make daring statement, but in a more subtle way. This creates a look that is classic and sophisticated, simple yet modern.

During the 17th and 18th century, monochrome pieces tend to be worn on more formal settings. In the modern times, however, monochrome is acceptable in both formal and casual settings. Last time, we wrote an article that highlights the changes in men’s fashion and style through the years. For those who are interested to learn how men’s fashion progressed through the century, click here.

For an eye-catching, yet understated look, try varying the textures within your look. Throw a plain white shirt and pair it with black jeans. You may also add in a leather jacket to add in an interesting twist to a plain outfit. Finish off the look with a pair of trainers. This is a great option since monochrome is one of the most wearable trends. Plus, it is not specific to any season, so you can wear them all year round.

White out

While everyone is busy making statements with bold patterns and eye-catching hues, others are taking on a minimal approach. White clothing is a staple in spring and summer men’s style. It creates a relaxed, laidback look. Plus, white reflects light, so you don’t feel too hot. Ultimately, it’s a classic and suits almost any occasion and situation.  You can’t go wrong with all white.

Some people are worried that all-white look may look like you’re wearing a uniform. Others are hesitant to give this look a try as it may come across as unimaginative or boring. For a more casual style, choose a white polo shirt and pair it with a chinos or white jeans. For summer, white linen shirts and breezy pants would make a great outfit.

White on white can be overpowering, so try to get a touch of color in there. You can add accessories like watches, sunglasses, handkerchiefs, patterned ties, and colored belts.

Final thoughts

Street style dressing doesn’t always translate to loose shirts, baggy pants and trainers. Given the amount of more complex designs and high end designer clothing being introduced in men’s style, you’d be forgiven for thinking that.

Trends come and go. Over the years, we’ve seen significant changes with men’s street style. Today, men are no longer limited to shirts, jeans and sneakers. Rather, they are free to choose whatever type of clothing they want – something that would reflect their individual style. Be bold, brave and adventurous with how you dress. Remember, fashion is all about finding your personal style.

If there is one thing that stays the same with men’s fashion, it’s change. In fact, it’s been happening to men’s fashion for centuries. Each season, fashion experts would publish magazines and articles that contain their predictions on which style, color, and fabric would be “in” in the next season.

For some, men’s fashion is a high priority. They prefer to wear clothes that are currently popular. They try to keep up with the latest fashion and style. But with the advancement of modern technology, fashion trends are coming in and out at a surprisingly steady rate. Keeping up with the latest men’s style can be a headache for most of them.

Let’s take a look at how men’s casual style and fashion trends have changed over the years.

Popular Styles Today

Men’s Street Style

Image Source: www.theidleman.com

Men’s street style is more of a reflection of their lifestyle and personality. It is generally associated with youth culture. Since it is under a constant state of evolution, it can be difficult to define. But the core components of men’s street style are items you already have in your wardrobe – t-shirts, jeans, varsity jackets, caps, and sneakers. They emphasize on casual and comfortable clothing.

The classic streetwear is big, baggy clothes. Oversized shirts are often paired with baggy pants and white sneakers. So, if you’ve spent countless hours in the gym sculpting an impeccably V-shaped torso, this may not be the best option for you. In street style, walking around wearing a shirt with a logo on your chest is acceptable. In the luxury world, it may seem promiscuous. But in streetwear, a logo is an acknowledgment that you’re aligned with a particular style tribe.

Male Cyberpunk Fashion

Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction. Cyber refers to technology; while punk refers to the attitude of the protagonist. Often, this refers to dissenters, visionaries, criminals, anti-heroes, and outsiders. Punk is often associated with dark colors and leather clothing. If you are looking for distinctive, edgy and dark clothing, then this would be the perfect style for you. Keep in mind, though, that it won’t work well for everyone.

What’s great about male cyberpunk fashion is that you can get away with wearing whatever you want. As long as it’s dark and futuristic, it is categorized as cyberpunk. Some prefer to wear dark, baggy clothing; while others prefer tight-fitting clothing.

Cyberpunk clothing doesn’t always have to be black. You are free to use colors in the darker range like dark gray or brown.

Korean Fashion Men

The Korean entertainment is booming right now. They are not just known for Korean dramas, k-pop music, and beauty products; they are also making it big in the fashion industry. In fact, Seoul has become one of the largest destinations for international style seekers.

Korean men have absolute freedom in their interpretation of fashion. Although the Westerners have influenced their fashion style, they try to develop their sense of individuality and identity. They are open to try new things and take more risk in prints, colors, and cuts.

Season Trends

Men’s fashion evolves and continually changes over time – from the sharp, dapper and charmingly retro look of the 1920s men’s fashion to the more unfortunate looks that became popular during the 80s and 90s. It’s amazing to see how certain events in history have influenced how people dress up. For instance, people were forced to come up with simple outfits during the World War II since they were only allowed a certain amount of fabric.

Some of the fashion trends that defined earlier eras have stood the test of time and even became style staples. Others are just fads. They became popular for a short period of time, and are never worn again. For instance, Michael Jackson made the parachute pants popular in the 1980s. The hippies made bell-bottom pants all the rage in the 70s. These pieces of clothing are no longer available in today’s clothing stores.

Let’s take a look at men’s fashion styles through the years and how far we’ve come to get where we are today.

Men’s fashion 2017

Image Source: www.pinterest.com

There is not a lot of innovation in men’s style and fashion from the past year. Some of 2016’s biggest trends spilled over into 2017. But men’s fashion 2017 saw a huge rise in bold hues, prints and patterns. Designers incorporated more colors, and patterns into their clothing as they believe that the modern men are brave enough to go out of their comfort zone. They aren’t afraid to make bold statements into their clothing and experiment with boldly patterned shirts. If you’re not as brave, we suggest that you start with monochrome prints.

This year, men are starting to bid farewell to skinny jeans are opting for wide-leg trousers instead. They prefer a more relaxed way of dressing. Looser cut jeans and trousers have been working their way from the runways to the mainstream for the past few seasons.

Men’s fashion 2016

Men’s fashion 2016 saw a revival of the past trends – from the 50s inspired shirts and overalls to distressed jeans to traditional colors.

Men’s fashion 2016 took inspiration to your grandfather’s favorite short-sleeved shirt – the Cuban collar shirts. These shirts are relaxed, breathable and made out of cotton. We’ve seen an uprise in Cuban collar shirts during the summer. Green and gray have been the color of choice for 2016.

Distressed jeans died down a little during the mid-2000s but made a major comeback in spring and summer 2016. These jeans are versatile, comfortable, and can add a bit of individuality to your look. With more and more men opting for a more relaxed fit, many of them have steered away from the skinny jeans. Rather, they found a new love for the wide-legged jeans and trousers.

90s Fashion men

Fun, freedom and rebellion were the theme of 90s fashion men. It seems to be all about being daring, brave and bold in your clothing choices.

They seem to reject the uncomfortable clothing trend of the past decade. That said, comfort became the emphasis of men’s fashion during the 90s. During this time, there was a surge in the popularity of Hip Hop music, which encouraged the wearing of oversized hoodies, distressed jeans, graphic print t-shirt, and trainers. Even corporate attire became less formal, and suits got bigger than usual. Neon-colored clothing and accessories also became popular with the youth.

80s Fashion for men

Conclusion

Most people buy something because they’re seriously on trend this season or because they love that particular brand. We understand that you want to look stylish and stay on top of the latest trends, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But before you decide to buy any piece of clothing, ask yourself if you really like it. Also, will it look good on you?

Beware of buying something just because it’s on trend right now. Sometimes, these trends don’t last that long. After several months to a year, these fashion trends will long be forgotten. It will be such a waste of money investing in clothes. What was cool last season may look weird and awkward this season. That said, we highly recommend that you stick with basic and versatile clothing when shopping for clothes. Opt for crew neck t-shirts, well-fitted jeans, white button down shirts, black or navy suit, sports coat or jackets and a good pair of shoes.

Once you have built a classic and timeless wardrobe, it would be easier for you to bring your own twist and incorporate the new trends into your personal style. Not only will you save money, but you’ll also look better on it. No matter what outfit you choose, make sure everything fits impeccably. Find the style that is right for you.
