Before we know it, summer will be over, and we’ll be getting back to reality in no time. Throughout the season, we put our skin through a lot, and it may need a little extra care once it’s over. When we think of a detox, we immediately think of detoxing our bodies from the inside, but did you know you can do the same for your skin from the outside? Between cleansing, masking, steaming, and more you’ll be able to renew your skin as needed. Keep reading for a breakdown on how to detox your skin the right way, along with some great products to help.
The first step in detoxifying your skin is a deep cleansing session. Using a cleanser that goes deep well beyond the surface will draw out any impurities getting in the way of your detox. Depending on your cleanser, you can use a separate exfoliant to remove any dead skin cells and open up your pores.
Do an At-Home Peel
A chemical peel can help everything from the texture of your skin to targeting acne. Think of a peel as hitting the ‘reset’ button on your skin and giving it a chance to start fresh. Peels help rejuvenate and bring your skin back to its healthy, normal state after being exposed to pollutants, makeup, and more.
Use a Steamer
Steaming your face feels like a pampering experience, but it’s more beneficial than you’d think. The steam opens up your pores and allows your skincare products to be absorbed better and penetrate deeper into the skin. It’s a simple way to get the most out of your skincare products while detoxing.
Apply a Mud Mask
A mud mask is a simple solution for a variety of skin concerns, but everyone can benefit from one. They’re one of the few products where you can literally feel the product doing its job, due to the tingling and invigorating sensations. However, you don’t want to leave a mud mask on for too long as it can strip your skin of its natural oils.
The truth is that a lot of us are dehydrated, whether we know it or not, and this affects our skin. Apart from drinking enough water to keep our skin healthy, we should also infuse it with hydrating ingredients for an added boost. Whether it’s a face mist, oil, moisturizer or hydrating mask, this is essential for detoxifying the skin.
