Many of us tend to think of our skin as a strong barrier between our delicate internal organs and the outside world. However, our skin is more like a soft sponge that is slowly collecting dirt, toxins, and other micro particles in the environment. Neglecting to detoxify our skin of free radicals and other impurities can lead to damaged skin cells, early signs of aging, inflammation, skin discoloration and other issues.
Thankfully, mother earth has provided us with various natural ingredients that give us that deep, detoxifying cleanse our skin needs. Here are some natural ingredients you can use to help detox your skin:
Drink More Water
You’ve heard it before, but simply drinking water does wonders for your skin. Staying hydrated will not only help to clear up your complexion and brighten you skin tone, but will also protect against skin disorders and premature aging. It is nature’s most basic elixir for flushing out toxins, aiding in digestion, and delivering nutrients throughout the body. A healthy, hydrated body contributes to healthy, hydrated skin.
Have some tea—for your face
Green tea is not only a wonderful way to hydrate, but green tea leaves have powerful detoxifying properties that are especially effective for the skin when applied topically. As a detox agent, Green Tea helps fight off free radicals responsible for skin damage and premature aging. It can also soothe inflammation, treat acne, and reduce redness.
Use Skin Care Products with Bamboo Charcoal
Activated bamboo charcoal is a well-known detox agent that penetrates your pores and draws out up to 200 times its weight in dirt, oil, and other impurities. A bamboo charcoal face mask is an effective antidote to environmental pollutants, long nights out, and sun exposure. Because bamboo charcoal is so effective at removing oils, pairing it with a naturally hydrating ingredient, such as black pearl powder, can help bring balance to your skin during the purification process.
Raid your Spice Cabinet
Surprise! Your spice rack contains a wealth of items that have powerful skin detoxing qualities when ingested or applied topically. For instance, black pepper is an anti-inflammatory agent that can stimulate circulation, and increase the amount of oxygen and nutrients that reaches the surface of your skin. Other spices that foster detoxification include black sesame, cardamom, and turmeric.
