Detox Your Skin for That Radiant Glow with These Easy Steps


Do you party every weekend like there is no tomorrow? Or has the holiday season caught you in really high spirits? Either way, parties do a lot more damage to our skin than we realise. Even if you diligently take off your makeup at the end of the night, the late nights, lack of hydration, eating oily and salty food and drinking can cause toxins to build up on our body which can lead to breakouts or dullness on our skin.
Even if you are not much of a party girl, the everyday commute to work or college exposes your skin to all the pollutants, which if not cleansed properly can damage your skin. Thus, no matter what your lifestyle is, it is important to detox you skin periodically to keep the pores clean, this will not only prevent breakouts but also help your products work better. To detox your skin, you don’t always need to go to the parlour for expensive clean-ups. You can follow some easy steps at home for the same:
Cleanse: This should be a part of your daily routine but be mindful of it in order to detox. Cleanse thoroughly using a cleanser meant for your skin type, twice a day every day. If you have dry skin, opt for an oil cleanser in the morning and foam cleanser at night. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, a water-based gel will be perfect for you both the times.
Steam: Steam your face or take a hot shower. This will allow the subsequent processes of scrubbing and masking to be easier. To get maximum benefits out of a steam, you can add lemon peel or neem leaves into the boiling water.
Mud mask: Mud masks are crucial for detox because they help to draw out the most impurities in the top layers of the skin. Apply a good quality mud mask every other day for the duration of your detox. Let the mask sit for as long as directed, then wipe it off with a damp washcloth followed by rinsing your face with normal water.
Hydration: While using a moisturiser for your skin type is essential for hydration and skin glow, it is also important that you hydrate yourself inside out. For a thorough detoxing, sip on plain warm water every day for 1 whole week. And if you want some extra detoxing power and a punch of fruity taste to make your water more fun, add some lemons or cucumber or berries to the water.
Watch your diet: This is the most holistic approach to detoxing. Cut out junk food and everything oily, sugary and salty from your diet for at least a few days. Start your morning with fresh fruits. Replace soda with herbal teas and fresh juices and completely quit alcohol. Have more salads and fresh greens instead of breads and pastas.
Exercise: A good workout is the best way to work up a sweat and release the toxins from your body. It will also improve your blood circulation and give you that glow.
Sleep: At the end of the day, a good 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep is essential to hit ‘reset’ for your body and allow it to restore and repair itself naturally.
These were some easy ways you can detox your skin and body after the crazy vacation or a few exhausting days at work. Go ahead and follow these tips to take care of yourself, because you deserve it!
