How to detoxify your skin
Ever wondered how to give your skin a detox? We talk you through the most important steps.
Like most other things in life, skin does need the occasional break. A time to slow down, get back to basics and get rid of anything that’s not helping you become your best, most radiant and glowy self.
Had a few too many late nights recently, or overloaded on the sugar? Perhaps you’ve been trying out a bunch of exciting new skincare products, or the stress levels at work have been creeping up – whatever the reason, you can almost guarantee the effects of these lifestyle changes will eventually start showing up on your skin.
That’s where a skin detox comes in. Just like a detox for your body, this is your time to hit ‘reset’ on your skin and help get it back to a healthy, happy state with some extra TLC.
If you’re wondering what you can do to detox your skin, keep reading for our top tips.
Start from the inside out
Indulging in treats is great, but everything in moderation. Try to limit the amount of refined sugar, processed foods and unhealthy fats in your diet and be kind to your body by adding in plant-based, nutritionally dense foods and drinking more water. By nourishing your body from the inside, your skin will thank you on the outside, too.
Reassess your skincare products
Switch up your skincare routine to target the concerns you’d like to treat. Vitamin C can do wonders for dull skin tone, for example, while a good eye cream can help with brightening and firming up a dark undereye area. Sunscreen should also be a daily part of your routine, to help protect against the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays.
Bring in the experts
For more immediate results, you may want to consider a Detox Treatment. At Skinsmiths, this is our signature deep cleansing facial treatment for a truly rejuvenated, glowing effect.
It starts with microdermabrasion to gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin, removing impurities and helping to brighten skin tone. Next, we use a thermal laser to cause controlled inflammation in the skin, stimulating the collagen production process for smoother, stronger skin. To finish it all off, a hydrating serum is applied before a sun protection product – leaving you with smooth, hydrated skin.
