How to detox your skin for a fresh face look
After completing this skin detox, your skin will emerge feeling refreshed and renewed, almost like it just got back from a well-deserved holiday! Ready to reset your skin and reclaim its former glow? Here’s how to give your skin the TLC it desperately needs!
Steps for detoxing your skin
#1 – Do the double-cleanse dance
The first start to any recovery program is a clean slate. After months (or years) of being contoured, defined, and blended probably had less than photo-ready effects on your skin. Start your skin detox by double-cleansing. First, use an oil-based cleanser to get rid of any oil and makeup residue and then follow up with a gentle cleanser afterward. Sure, double-cleansing seems time-consuming, but it’s vital for detoxing your skin. Just trust us.
#2 – Exfoliate (but please don’t go bonkers)
Because you’re aiming to achieve baby-soft skin, you need to use a gentle exfoliator a few times a week. This helps your cleanser to its job and also buffs away dead skin cells.
#3 – Steam things up
During your skin’s detox, steam is your best friend. Steaming your face cleans your pores and gets rid of toxins, dirt, and debris. Plus, whatever you use after a steaming session penetrates much deeper! We recommend steaming followed by the Vitamin C Brightening Booster serum, which works hard to help firm and brighten the appearance of your skin to produce a naturally younger, rejuvenated look!
#4 – Mask time!
A mask is just as good as a facial if you can’t pop into the spa for a professional treatment. Depending on your skin needs, you’ll either want a mask that balances out your skin’s oil levels or something that moisturizes deeply. The market is flooded with a variety of excellent picks, but if your budget doesn’t allow for splurges like these, you can always just opt to whip something up from some pantry items yo already have at home!
#5 – Allow your face some time to breathe
Sometimes we all need to just take a deep breath, and it’s a mantra we need to apply to our skincare routine too at times. Whenever you’re doing a skin detox, it’s essential to give your skin some breathing space, forgoing foundation for a day (or week if possible). If you absolutely need some form of coverage, opt for an oil-free tinted moisturizer.
#6 – Double-check your diet
Glowing skin starts from within and foods like dairy, sugar, and caffeine can ruin even the best skin detox intents. Even if it is just for a few days, try cutting out these culprits. We know it might not be the easiest thing to do, but your skin will thank you for it in the end.
