Our guide to how to detox your skin
Start with a cleanser
If you want to detox your skin, the best place to start is with a squeaky-clean base. Using an effective and powerful cleanser that soothes and thoroughly cleans the skin is the first step to any good detox routine. Tie up your hair out of the way, smooth a generous amount of cleanser onto your skin and wash away with lukewarm water to get that wonderful clean feeling that will last all day long.
For oilier skin, Skin Juice Pulp Detox Clarifying Cleansing Paste is the ideal addition to your cleansing routine. Packed with lemon myrtle, fruit enzymes and bamboo grains, this unique cleanser gives you the freshest face possible.
Follow up with a face mask
Many face mask lovers make the mistake of masking up before they’ve cleansed. But when it comes to detox, starting with fresh skin is a must to pull out all those hidden impurities. Clay-based face masks and anything focused on detoxification is the best bet when it comes to thoroughly detoxing your face.
If sheet masks aren’t a trend you’re into, Antipodes Halo Skin Brightening Facial Mud Mask is your ideal alternative. Filled with detoxifying ingredients, including grape and kiwi, as well as volcanic mud and peony, this brightening mask will leave your skin glowing and clear in just a single-use.
Try out toners and serums
Both toners and serums are a valuable addition to your detox routine, prepping your skin ready for the day and helping to maintain oil and hydration levels. While cleansers and masks help strip the skin of all that bad stuff, toners help build your complexion back up again, focusing on problem areas for a restored and rejuvenated complexion.
Finish up with a detoxifying moisturiser
Rich, luxurious moisturisers may be your first thought for skincare, but the less, the better, when it comes to detoxing. Instead of opting for heavier, more moisture-rich options, detoxified skin might be best suited to non-comedogenic products to prevent breakouts and keep your skin beautifully in balance. Ingredients that clog the pores and smother the skin are only likely to lead to the need for more detoxing, after all.
You are what you drink
What you put on your face is important for detoxification – but what you put in your body can be just as vital to maintaining a clear complexion. No detox for clear skin would be complete without amazing supplements to make you feel incredible inside and out. Leaving your skin as clear and blemish-free as possible.
