Skin detox starts now!

After the festive holidays full of food, drink and travelling – it is not just your waistline that may have been affected by water retention and a few extra pounds, but your skin too. Your face may appear duller and more tired than usual, with a few new friends such as blackheads and dark circles, due to the extra stress on your skin from the past few weeks of frolics and fun, not to mention the harsh winter weather. So what is the best way to improve your skin for the new 2019-you?

Detox – the inside

Food is a valuable ally in purifying your body, and consequently, your skin.

Go for fresh fruit and vegetables, which are rich in fibre to aid digestion, such as broccoli and green leafy vegetables, as well as pineapple, cucumber, lemon and chilli pepper. Soups and green juices are a tasty and easy way to add these to your diet. You may or may not have hopped on the dry-January wagon, as reducing alcohol intake is another step towards clearer skin, but also consider giving one of your daily coffees a miss, and replace it with purifying fennel or licorice herbal teas, or even green tea, rich in antioxidants and mineral salts. Another great tip, is to start your day with hot water with a few drops of lemon juice – this will help reinvigorate your liver function.

Detox – the outside

While your choice of food and drink is helping your body work to clear your skin, there are a few things you can do to help them along. The most suitable products to deeply clean up and revitalize tired and stressed skin are those that act in depth with specific treatments. You could start with the Refining mask – applied to the face and focusing on the T-area (forehead, nose and chin), it acts to eliminate the most obvious impurities and prepares the skin for a good Essential Cleansing Oil, before a well-deserved hydration.

Once your skin is clean, look to giving it an extra boost with Daily Power C, our powerful antioxidant serum, providing anti-pollution and environmental protection while helping strengthen and brighten skin with a high dose of Vitamin C. For those dark circles our Eye Restore improves the appearance of fine lines and puffiness while restoring skin’s texture. Let 2019 be the year you get into the habit of looking after your skin – inside and out – leaving you time and energy for the rest of lifes challenges and those crazy nights.
