At-Home Skin Detox

At-Home Skin Detox

While having a spa inside our home would be ideal, most of us cannot afford that. However, there are some affordable ways to give yourself an at-home skin detox. Next time you have a free weekend to pamper yourself, why not try a few of these tips?

Start your at-home detox by watching what you eat and drink. Avoid salty foods (which can make your skin look and feel dehydrated and bloated) and anything spicy (which may trigger redness or inflammation). Drink plenty of water throughout the day and try herbal teas with ingredients such as ginger or chamomile to calm yourself.

Next, it’s time to give yourself a DIY facial. Apply a warm washcloth to your face to open up your pores. After 10-15 minutes of that, it’s time to apply a thick face mask. As you let the mask soak into your skin, relax with some music. Wipe away the mask and watch as you see the impurities and the day’s dirt wash away.

Exfoliating is also a great way to detox your skin. Shinso Glow is a light exfoliant with many added benefits. After removing away the product, your skin will be free of the dead layers. Apply a thick moisturizer and let it soak in for hours as you read magazines, watch TV or anything else that helps you relax.

Lastly, spend some time cleaning your makeup brushes and other items you use on your face daily. These brushes easily foster germs, skin cells and makeup, so cleaning them bi-weekly is a must. While you’re at it, toss out any expired or old beauty or skincare products, as you want your skin to stay clean and fresh in the future.
