A facial detox involves removing all of the impurities, toxins, pollutants, and dead skin cells from your skin for one entire week. By committing to a detox, you can renew and revitalize your skin just in time for Fall. So, how exactly do you detox your skin after summer? This handy detox guide by Cynaglow is sure to answer this very question.
Drink Plenty of Water
When it comes to a post-summer detox, water is your best friend. Keep a water bottle by your side and drink from it as much as possible. If you don’t like the bland taste of water, get creative and spruce it up with some fresh fruits. Try to limit alcohol and caffeine as they can dehydrate your skin during the detox.
Go Light on the Makeup
In a perfect world, you wouldn't apply an ounce of makeup while detoxing your skin. However, we know you have work and social events to go to so this may not be realistic. If you do need to wear makeup, go light and use clean products that are free of chemicals and toxic ingredients. Beautycounter has some great options! See the eyeshadow palette and foundation.
While fries and milkshakes are delicious, they won’t do anything for your detox. Stick to fresh, nutritious foods and cut back on dairy products, fried foods, and sugar. Fill your fridge with fruits, veggies, and lean proteins. These foods are sure to help you glow from the inside out.
Relax in a Detox Tea Bath
There’s nothing better than soaking in a warm bath so why not relax in a detox tea bath with Elixir Detox Bath Teas. A detox tea bath can pull harmful toxins from your skin and soothe sore muscles and stiff joints while boosting your overall health. Try sitting in it for at least 15 to 20 minutes a day. Your skin and body will thank you.
Use a Natural Body Polish
To polish, moisturize, and detoxify your skin, you can’t go wrong with the Elixir Detox Body Polish. Made with 100% Pink Himalayan Sea Salt and blended with rose and lavender essential oil plus fine red rose petals, this natural body polish can deposit over 75 minerals through your skin’s pores and replace the toxins it extracts. You can soak your skin with the natural body polish for up to 30 seconds and gently exfoliate.
Be Selective with Your Soap
Instead of using any ordinary soup you find at the store or in your bathroom cabinet, opt for a special detox soap. The Elixir Natural Detox Soap is the perfect option. It’s made from moisturizing oils and butters that are blended with activated charcoal and tea tree essential oil and ideal for skin detoxification.
