If only exfoliation were the one necessary ingredient to make our skin glow! Unfortunately (or perhaps, fortunately), beauty truly does come from within. If you’ve tried some of our post-holiday detoxing tips, then you’ve likely noticed improvements in your skin, already.
If not, we’ve decided to give you our go-to detoxing plan that can be used year-round and that will help you keep your skin beautiful, radiant, and as youthful as possible.
Beautify your everyday menu
You need a healthy gut to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. The same goodies in the fridge that benefit your immune system and digestive tract also make your skin look and feel smooth and silky. That means antioxidant-packed berries and greens, protein-rich foods such as eggs, and fatty fish as well as nuts and seeds that are loaded with healthy fats.
This means playing the long beauty game! You’ll need to stick to your healthy diet for the long haul if you want to see the desired results in the mirror. Your skin will certainly become healthier, and it will naturally detox itself from the inside when you consume the right foods.
Choose gentle, natural, and organic
Although beauty isn’t skin-deep at all, and it heavily depends on nutrition, exercise, and sleep, you also need to be mindful of what you apply on your skin. Just like you should aim for local, seasonal, organic produce that wasn’t grown with excessive amounts of pesticides and other chemicals, the same logic applies to your skin care routine.
Choose beauty products based on natural ingredients – the fewer ingredients in total, the better. That makes the products simpler and less risky to cause allergic reactions and skin sensitivities. Just be sure you’re applying gentle, natural products that are suitable for your skin type and any preexisting health conditions such as eczema. Pure coconut oil is a great example of a kitchen essential that is also a beauty staple!
Try lymphatic drainage
The lymphatic system is part of your overall immune system, and while it does its job well on its own, you can definitely boost its detoxing capacity to purify your skin and reclaim that glow. Our detox bundle can introduce you to dry brushing as well as the cleansing power of bath salts.
To make your drainage ritual even more effective, you can use LymphActiv based on numerous natural ingredients. That way, you can create an all-inclusive approach that cleanses your skin through lymphatic drainage inside and out, with the right massage methods as well as supplements.
Perhaps coffee gives you that energy jolt when you rise and shine, but have you considered replacing coffee with a more hydrating alternative, such as tea or lemon water? Essentially, your body depends on water to flush out any toxins.
Without proper hydration, you risk getting pimples, blackheads, dry patches, and a variety of skin problems, including premature signs of ageing. So, in addition to plenty of water, reach for healthy beverages during the day instead of coffee.
Get that beauty sleep
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: sleep is your body’s only time to recover and detox properly. Disrupting your own sleep patterns can lead to insomnia, feeling fatigued and sluggish, and not to mention the impact on your pores. Let’s face it, eyebags and dark circles don’t look good on anyone.
To help your body detox, make sure you get enough beauty sleep every night. Relax before bed to fall asleep easily and start reducing your pre-sleep screen time. It will increase the quality of your sleep and allow you to rest properly for the next day.
To look and feel beautiful, you need to take excellent care of more than just your skin. Lovely skin products are a great start. But creating a careful meal plan, a good sleeping routine, and pampering your skin with the occasional massage can make all the difference.
