Detoxifying Your Skin: Why This is Important
Detoxifying your skin is 101 to getting you on your way to overall skin wellness and achieving the skin outcome you are looking for.
Not only is it possible to detoxify your skin, but it’s indulging in a deep skin cleanse is crucial to maintain skin health. All kinds of pollutants, dead skin cells, toxins and impurities build up on the skin causing a host of problems. If you’ve noticed your skin is dull or breaking out, it might be time for a little detox with these tips for detoxifying your face.
Wash your face
There’s a reason why your mother always told you never go to bed without washing your face: nothing beats clean, fresh skin. Cleanse your skin twice a day to remove impurities and toxins: once in the morning, and once before bed. Choose gentle cleansers that work with your skin type to avoid over-drying or over-hydrating, and feel free to switch up your routine with different products to suit your skin needs.
Indulge in regular facials
A professional facial can go a long way towards cleaning out your pores, no matter how diligent you are with your at-home cleansing. Plus, facials can revitalize your mind and spirit as well as your skin, leaving you detoxified from the inside out.
According to the Mayo Clinic, women should drink about 11.5 cups of water every day and men about 15.5. Drinking enough water keeps your body functioning optimally and helps it flush out toxins.
Take your hydration one step further by not only drinking water but avoiding drinks that introduce more toxins. While a coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night probably won’t make or break your skin, these indulgences can make it tougher to thoroughly detox.
Detox through diet
You are what you eat, right? When it comes to detoxifying your face, this adage is true. Heavily-processed or fatty foods like fried goods, dairy, and products with lots of added sugar can clog your pores and dull your skin. Instead, base your diet on whole foods with lots of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats such as kale, pears, broccoli, bananas, walnuts and avocados.
Make your own spa experience
If you don’t have the time or budget for regular facials or if you prefer to relax in the comfort of your own home, you can easily make your own detoxifying spa experience with a detox face mask.
Look for detox masks made with activated bamboo charcoal, a powerful ingredient that draws out bacteria, dirt, chemicals, excess oil, and other toxic microparticles from deep within the skin. Other ingredients including tea tree leaf oil and black pearl also go a long way towards detoxifying your skin and leaving you with a more flawless, bright complexion.
Apply a detox face mask to your skin for 20 to 40 minutes to allow the ingredients to seep deep into your pores. After you remove the mask, massage any remaining serum for an extra facial-lifting boost.
