1. Deep clean your skin with steam.
Steam is the fastest and easiest way to deep clean your skin and make it glow. It doesn’t get easier than this.
What is so great about steaming your face?
When steam touches your skin, you start to sweat – causing your pores to open. The steam then softens your dead skin cells and blackheads, making it easier to remove them. It also helps your skin throw out all the dirt and toxins that are trapped inside.
The thing I love best about steaming is the rosy-cheeked glow I’m left with. That’s because steaming also boosts the blood flow to your face. More blood flow, means healthier skin. Yay!
2. Remove dull skin with a scrub
Scrubbing literally turns your skin from dull and tired to bright and glowing – within minutes!
When you scrub your skin, you are brushing off all the tired, dull and dead skin cells that have collected on top of your skin. Your skin is immediately smoother and brighter because the fresh, new, healthy cells that were underneath are now revealed.
3. Purify with a mask
Our faces go through so much abuse every single day – from sun damage to pollution to makeup to late nights and even unhealthy food choices. There’s no better time than now to hit the reset button – with a detox mask!
Look for masks with charcoal, clay or mud as these literally pull-out impurities from your pores, unclogging them. Charcoal mask work better for oily and combination skin types are they soak up more oil. Soft clay masks are better for dry or sensitive skin types.
4. Drink water to flush out toxins
Did you know you need to drink water at the right time to get the best detox?
It’s good to drink all through the day, BUT you should definitely drink water when you:
Just after you wake up – It activates your organs and flushes out toxins.
Right before a bath – You lose water when you bathe. Drinking a glass keeps you hydrated.
Before you sleep – So your skin doesn’t get dehydrated through the night.
5. Sleep your way to better skin.
If you get less than 7 hours of sleep every night, it will take a toll on your face.
Your skin will look dull, tired, dark circles are more visible and you may also get more breakouts!
That’s because when you sleep, your skin repairs itself. Blood flow to your skin increases so you wake to a healthy glow. But when you skimp on sleep, you don’t get enough blood circulation – so you wake up looking tired and pale.
Also, when you don’t get enough rest, it causes stress, that leads to breakouts and flare-ups. So make sure you get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep. Every. Single. Night.
