The New Year is a great time to detox your body, removing the toxins that have built up over the festive period and giving you a fresh start for a fresh year. Of course, for a successful detox, you need to start from the inside and work out. Check out our post entitled ‘Eating for Healthier Skin‘ for some tips on the best foods and drinks to bring out your inner glow.
However, there are also a few things you can do to help your detox from the outside in! By making sure your skin is healthy and clear of problems, there’s a much greater chance that you’ll make it through your detox without experiencing a serious breakout. Here’s our number one recommendation for keeping ahead of the game, skin-wise: our special PreCleanse Box Set.
The kit includes a full-size PreCleanse and a travel-size Special Cleansing Gel and Multi-Active Toner. The PreCleanse is great for clearing anything off the skin, from the grime of your daily commute right through to the toughest of waterproof mascaras. What’s more, unlike many other cleansers, this formula works without compromising the natural eco-system of your skin – it won’t remove anything it’s not meant to.
The Special Cleansing Gel and Multi-Active Toner are really the icing on the cake. The Cleansing Gel is our most-loved product (you can get it by itself here), and will give your skin a fresh and smooth feeling without drying it out. The toner can then be applied to prepare your skin for the application of a moisturiser (it’s extra important to keep your skin moist and supple at tough times like these because dry skin is compromised and prone to infection and breakouts).
The main thing to keep in mind as you get stuck into your detox is to keep your skin clean and healthy without going overboard and over-exfoliating or over-moisturising. That way, you’ll stand a much better chance of getting rid of those toxins without looking like they’re all escaping via your face!
