Every day, the skin especially face is exposed to toxins and impurities that lead to skin problems like blackheads, skin bumps, blemishes. These will prevent the skin from rejuvenate and later make it look dull, red, oily, dry or sensitive. Ultimately, accelerate the aging process.
If one of these problems is experienced, skin detoxification is needed. Relying on lotion or moisturizer alone will not be enough. There are so many ways to detoxify, especially the affordable ones. Check out some internal and external methods of detox like a pro from sources such as Annmarie Skin Care.
According to POPSUGAR, omega-3 fatty acids may increase the skin's natural hydration and suppleness, and promote healthy oil production. Detox Health Watch also reported that Omega-6 is a great internal moisturizer to avoid skin damage. Moreover, eating a lot more fruit, vegetables, nuts, organic foods, whole grain foods, and using sesame oil or olive oil in cooking are also very helpful.
Annmarie Skin Care added that drinking more pure water and tea is an important step in detoxing body, inside and out. To be more effective, add some lemon. Detox Health Watch also stressed that reducing junk food, trans fat, alcohol, dairy, red meat, refined carbohydrates, sugar, processed food, and caffeine will be good for the skin. Sometimes, fasting is needed if done properly.
Aromatherapy with essential oils such as eucalyptus, peppermint oil, and citrus to steam the face can also detoxifying tired, stressed skin. However, do not use steam excessively to avoid dry skin.
Not less important, routine skin cleansing and sweating. Double cleansing including oil-based cleanser helps melt off makeup residue. Skin cleansing with occasional scrub also detoxify the skin from toxins, impurities,and dead cells. However, natural peels are more useful for skin regeneration. For example, use the insides of natural papaya or cucumber skins. Sweating can also detox the body and skin. Try favorite exercise, yoga or spa heat.
Vitamins can also help detox. Vitamin A and zinc help the skin to stay hydrated, vitamin B complex to boost energy, Vitamin C to build collagen and Vitamin E to rejuvenate it. Additionally, Vitamins C and E are antioxidant that helps detox toxins and protects the skin from damage.
Sometimes 'contaminating' the skin a bit to detoxify it is needed. Mud treatments, especially from the Dead Sea can help detoxify the skin by restoring the pH balance, hydrating and exfoliating the skin.
The last but not the least, having a professional treatment for blackheads, whiteheads, bumps or blemishes are highly recommended to avoid infection. One of them is hydra facial, nonirritating treatment using a special serum to soften and detox the toxins and impurities. Although the extraction can be a little uncomfortable, it is still important.
