As the largest organ in your body, your skin needs a little extra love and attention. This is especially true when the season changes. Now that we are in autumn, you need to reflect on how you and the environment treated your skin during the warmer months. Ask yourself—Did I stay hydrated? Did I wear sunscreen to protect my skin? Did I wear a hat why soaking up the sun? If you answered no to any of those questions don’t worry. There’s always time to get your skin back in check. Here are some simple ways to detoxify your skin and experience the healthy glow again.
Dry skin brush your body from toe to head prior to taking a bath or shower. Dry skin brushing removes toxins from your body and helps your lymphatic system to drain.
Before you get out of the tub after a soak or shower, rinse your body in cool water. The cool water pushes toxins out of your body.
Use a gentle exfoliator to help slough away all the pollution, makeup, oil, bacteria, dead skin cells, and toxins. True Esscents body scrub will buff away dead skin cells and polish your skin.
Cleanse your face with an oil-based cleanser.
Expose your face to steam to allow skincare products to penetrate and clean out your pores.
Moisturize your skin with products that will lock water into your skin.
Maintain a well-balanced diet. Eat alkaline-rich fruits and vegetables like pears, broccoli, leafy greens, watermelon, and bananas. Alkaline minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium keep skin strong, and healthy fats from foods like avocados and nuts will have you glowing from the inside. Avoid dairy products, fried foods, and sugars, which all cause clogged pores and dull skin.
Drink plenty of water.
A skin detox gives your skin a fresh start. Detoxing stimulates your skin by nurturing collagen and elastin development, boosting cell metabolism, increasing cell turnover, and improving the skin barrier. Try detoxing your skin at beginning of each season and enjoy the benefits of a healthy glow.
Peace, love & healthy skin!
