Natural Ways to Detox Your Skin Post-Summer
As we approach the middle of august and children start preparing for the school season, we welcome new routines and busy schedules back into our lives. Although you’ve enjoyed every second of your summertime pleasures, there’s no denying that your warm weather indulgences have taken their toll on your body and your skin.
Here are a few natural ways to detox your post-summer skin!
Eat Foods That Have Detox Properties
One of the best ways to detox your body is through the food you eat. Introducing fresh fruits and veggies into your diet is a start, but why not take it a step further by selecting produce with high detoxification properties? Produce like dark leafy greens, cabbage, beets, apples, garlic, and onions are known for their liver-cleansing properties. Add kale in smoothies and salads, as it is a must-have for your skin thanks to lutein, which is converted to vitamin A, giving a collagen boost that helps ward off wrinkles, evens tone, and keeps skin smooth and luminous. These detox foods will help clear and cleanse your system, so you feel and look your best.
Double cleansing might be a change from your typical skincare routine, but it's extremely important during a skin detox. To start, cleanse with an oil-based cleanser. Next, cleanse with a high-quality cleansing cream. The first part of your double cleansing routine will help remove makeup, dirt, excess oils, and pollution from your skin, while the second part will remove any remaining impurities left on your skin's surface.
Steam Your Pores
After your double cleansing routine, expose your skin to steam to allow skincare products to penetrate and clean out your pores. To steam your pores, bring a pot of water to boil, then transfer the water to a bowl. Hover your face above the bowl and drape a towel over your head to concentrate the steam to your facial pores for about 10 minutes.
Use Detox Masks
Applying a leave-on detoxifying face mask will help revitalize your skin and reveal a radiant complexion. Take advantage of the balm-like texture to massage your detoxifying mask deeply into your skin, circling the area around the eyes.
