Whenever your body tells you its feeling bloated, heavy and congested you’ve probably turned to a detox diet. The purpose of ‘detoxification’ is to help cleanse your body from waste, impurities and toxins to keep the body functioning at its best; to improve digestion and restore energy.
But how often do you do a skin detox? A skin detox is a great way to cleanse your skin and pores from impurities for a healthy and radiant glow. Pollutants and dirt from the environment can clog your pores, and toxins from your diet can cause your complexion to suffer.
Fortunately, Neutrogena has launched a skincare range AKA your skin’s new best friend, that specifically focuses on detoxing your skin; to help brighten your skin and reduce breakouts and hyperpigmentation.
I’ve been using the Neutrogena for two weeks now and I’m so impressed with all the products from the range. They are all packed with the best pore-busting and oil-controlling ingredients that will not only detox your skin but will also keep the oil in check for the upcoming hot summer months. The products deeply purify your skin for a healthy and bouncy complexion without stripping away the essential moisture in your skin.
Remove Makeup: Neutrogena Skin Detox Triple Micellar Water
Micellar Water is one of my favourite skincare inventions and I’m so thankful to the French for this beauty cult product. The Neutrogena Skin Detox Triple Micellar Water works to gently remove make up; even waterproof makeup like mascara while gently purifying the skin.
The Neutrogena Skin Detox 2-in-1 Clay Wash-Mask is a detoxifying clay facial cleanser that specifically targets all types of impurities and pollution. The formula is enriched with glycolic acid to gently help draw out trapped dirt, oil and make-up residue while preserving your skin’s essential moisture balance. I love how I can use this as a daily cleanser or as a detoxifying mask when my skin needs to go beyond clean.
Exfoliate: Neutrogena Skin Detox Cooling Scrub
The Neutrogena Skin Detox Cooling Scrub was definitely one of my favourite products from the range. The scrub has been formulated with gentle micro-exfoliators to improve skin texture and detox pores. The product is enriched with some active ingredients, like salicylic acid and glycolic – which are quite strong; but since it is a wash and aren’t left on the skin for too long.
Why You Need A Summer Skin Detox?
So you’re probably wondering why exactly does your skin need a detox? What can it do for you? Well, your skin is one of the major organs that’s involved in eliminating waste and impurities in your body through perspiration. So when your system is overwhelmed it can become congested and struggle to get rid of these impurities.
Some signs that can indicate that your skin is in need of summer skin detox include dull complexion and uneven skin tone, excess oiliness along your T-zone area or dehydration – a tightness feeling on the skin. So starting an external daily or seasonal detoxification routine can definitely help brighten skin and get rid of impurities and toxins.
Summer Skin Detox Tips:
Apply a detoxifying clay mask 1 – 2 times per week:
When you apply a clay mask or a detoxifying cleanser it helps pull out all the pollution, impurities and waste materials out of your skin; which then helps revitalise the appearance of dull complexion. For a summer skin detox apply the mask a little thicker than usual and hop into a hot bath or shower and allow the stem to further work the ingredients on your skin. Of course, I would recommend using the Neutrogena Skin Detox 2-in-1 Clay Wash-Mask for the ultimate summer skin glow.
Exfoliate the skin with a detoxifying scrub:
A detoxifying scrub will help make sure that your clogged pores are properly primed and dead skin is removed. A gentle exfoliating scrub like the Neutrogena Skin Detox Cooling Scrub will help reveal a gorgeous natural glow.
To be honest with the festive season just around the corner I know it won’t be easy saying no to the delicious festive food and the endless glasses of champagne, or even keep up with my facials and weekly masking, but by using the Neutrogena Skin Detox in my daily skincare routine it will definitely make a difference.
