We all tend to over-do things between Christmas and New Year, consuming far too much in the way of rich foods and alcohol and having a ‘January Detox’ is an almost yearly occurance to try to undo all the excesses of December. Here at Pure Beauty, we also think that having a skin detox is a great idea, giving our skin time to recover too, as the overindulgance of the festive season can take it’s toll on our complexion. Here are five of the best products for detoxing your skin:
This is probably our favourite detox product of all because it literally brushes away the top layer of skin, removing the cells which have been exposed to all of the environmental pollutants of the festive season. The natural cactus bristles help to reduce the appearance of cellulite, keep your lymphatic system flowing properly and give your skin its glow back.
This facial cleansing milk from Decleor has a light feel which cleanses the skin efficiently, and also contains green tea water which is known to remove toxins from the skin and leave you with a brighter, clearer complexion. It contains sweet almond oil so that it doesn’t strip away essential moisture and neroli oil to give a rich, sweet fragrance.
Charcoal is a brilliant ingredient for detoxifying the skin as it literally draws impurities out of the pores as it dries. This masque is a multi-purpose treatment which will detoxify, brighten and invigorate your skin, turning a dull, lacklustre complexion into a brightened, renewed visage. It’s great for people with excess oil production too, as the charcoal will absorb excess sebum and help to rebalance the skin.
This body oil is intended to help your internal system in many ways, prompting a detox from the inside out. Massaging your body with this oil will help to combat the build-up of toxins caused by poor diet, stress and lack of exercise, help to boost a sluggish system and eliminate lethargy and can even help with constipation by rubbing into the tummy and lower back area. It’s perfect for this time of year when we rarely exercise, eat far too much and need help to get everything moving again.
This toner is part of the same range as the cleansing milk we recommended above and contains the same green tea water and neroli oil to detox the skin while adding a delightful, nourishing fragrance. This is a professional-grade toner with a fresh sparkling fragrance which balances the skin’s natural pH and leaves skin feeling beautifully refreshed, revitalised and re-hydrated.
