What is skin detoxing?

Our skin is known as the largest organ in the body and it helps protect our bodies against infection and excessive water loss. It also serves as an insulation, sensation, temperature regulation, and the production of vitamin D.

We are exposed to daily dirt, pollutants, makeup, hormonal disorders, chemicals in water, and a non-healthy diet. These toxic substances buildup inside our bodies and our skin, which is why they get damaged over time. The effects are visible on our faces by showing signs of redness, blemishes, inflammation, and a dry scaly unhealthy skin. But even with all that, you shouldn't worry about it because there are plenty of ways to protect yourself from it.

Following a regular daily skin care routine can limit and reverse these changes. It can brighten the skin and reduce any signs of skin damage that are induced by toxins. Here are some of the benefits of skin detoxing:

  • It hydrates the skin.
  • It can improve the skin tone for a brighter and clearer skin.
  • It promotes tightness and firmness on the skin which will make it feel and look younger.
  • It cleans out the pores, blackheads, blemishes, and irritation from your skin.
  • It detoxifies and removes toxins out of the skin surface. This will improve and rejuvenate the appearance of your skin while removing such impurities.

When is the best time for skin detoxing?

The most important step for your skin detoxification is your daily skin care routine that includes cleansing, moisturizing, toning, and treating. You need to follow this routine twice a day wherein the first one should be in the morning before applying your makeup and the second one at night before going to bed.

This process allows your skin some time to heal and breathe overnight instead of being clogged by the dirt and makeup. Shower is the easiest time to do this because it makes rinsing easier.

5 ways to detox your skin

Drinking water is the best way of achieving a hydrated glowing complexion. Make sure to target drinking 1.5 to 2 liters of water or more each day. You can choose between water, tea, and fresh fruit juice to hydrate yourself, but water should remain as your top choice.

When you drink lots of fluids, it gives your kidneys the opportunity to flush out plenty of nasty toxins from your body. If you're not so keen on water, you can try using an infuser. There are several gorgeous infusers available in the market so there's plenty for you to choose from.

For your diet, make sure that it is a healthy and balanced one. If possible, try focus on foods that have a high fiber content because it contains essential vitamins that can help produce a clear, toxin-free skin and a better overall health.

Your daily skin care routine must be a priority for your detoxing. The hours of being makeup-free will allow your skin to properly breathe and rejuvenate.

For your skin care routine, these are the important steps that you need to follow:

  • Cleanse - You must wet your skin using warm water to open up your pores. Apply your preferred cleanser and massage it onto your skin in a circular and upward motion. There are some products that requires you to leave it on your skin for one minute so that it will dissolve the dirt, makeup, and really penetrate your pores.
  • Tone - After cleansing, you should apply some toner on your skin using a cotton pad. Toners will help restore the natural pH levels of your skin that may have been altered during the cleansing part. When your skin's natural pH levels are returned to normal, you allow it to become resistant against bacteria and microorganisms. Remember to choose a toner that suits your skin type especially for those who have oil problems.
  • Moisturize - There are different types of moisturizers in the market and you can choose the one that suits your skin. If you're skin suffers from extremes such as environmental impact, hormonal fluctuation, seasonal changes, and over-exposure to damaging UV, make sure to consider a moisturizer that can help re-balance your complexion.
  • Sun Protection - The sun's UV-light or tanning beds is the biggest contributor to premature skin ageing and damage. To avoid this, use some sun protection and apply it daily on your skin, even when it's a cloudy day.

Other techniques that could reduce toxin load and skin damage:

  • Quit smoking - Burning cigarettes and constant expressions that smokers make when they smoke can damage the facial skin and create wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.
  • Reduce your alcohol intake - Alcohol will cause your body and skin to become dehydrated thus leaving the skin look old and tired. Instead of this, you should drink plenty of water and eat a healthy balanced diet.
  • Get plenty of sleep - You should keep in mind to always sleep on your back with your face up so that it will minimize the gravity's stretching effect on your skin. Another tip is to invest in a copper oxide fiber pillowcase so that it will keep your skin fresh and fight off wrinkles. The advanced copper ions will transfer to your skin leaving it smooth and allows it to rejuvenate its appearance.
  • Limit bath time - Make sure to bathe yourself in hot water so that it can remove oils from your skin. Also, don't wash your face too aggressively to prevent it from developing fine lines.
  • Exercise regularly - Doing daily exercises will make you fit and healthy and your skin will benefit from it too. This will result in having better circulation that will give your skin a natural glow.
