Have you ever looked yourself in the mirror and not liked what’s staring back at you? If so, then you’re not alone. In fact, there are millions of Americans living in the United States that feel the exact same way. Every so often, we all slip when it comes to taking care of our bodies and minds. Unfortunately, slipping on your diet, letting stress get the best of you, and that lack of sleep are all really awful for you and it does at some point catch up with you.
There’s no other way around it, really. The good news is that I’ve done my part and put together what I consider to be a simple guide to detoxing your skin. Here’s what you need to know if those things are getting the best of you. Take action and do what I’ve laid out below, you’ll be fine if you do.
Simple Guide To Detoxing Your Skin
If you’re body is getting to that freak out phase when you’ve burnt the candle at both ends, then it’s time to take your body and skin back. Here are a few things that I suggest you do to fix things.
Commit To It Again
The first thing that you need to do is commit once again. What do I mean by that? Well, you’ve got to get your mind in the game and agree to just commit to making your skin look better. Committing to it is an essential step of whipping your skin back in shape because if you don’t, none of your efforts will last.
They’ll be short lived attempts to quickly bounce back and nothing more. So, instead, you’ve got to commit to doing a consistent routine. That means putting forth the effort every single day, no questions asked.
Steam It Up
Once you’ve committed to it and you’re in a good place aka good mindset, then it’s time to go to work. Start by incorporating steaming into your routine. Using a simple facial steamer for ten minutes at a time can help remove some of the toxins from your body and skin. I suggest purchasing one of the Pro Facial Steamers made by Dr. Dennis Gross. You can buy this on Sephora.com or Amazon.com. Assuming you cannot afford this product, then all you need to know boil water and use a towel. However, this DIY approach can be dangerous so be careful.
Filtering And Drinking
If you want to detox your body as well as your skin, then you need to add filters to your life. What I mean by that is adding both air filters and water filters to your life. Believe it or not, air purifiers do a lot for your skin. They remove the allergens from rooms and this alone helps fight off wrinkles.
If you want to detox your skin, then you should add charcoal to your face. Adding a charcoal mask to your face can help detox your skin for sure. I personally know a bunch of people that use charcoal masks to detox their skin. If you’ve got acne and stress in your life, then this is what you need. It’s activated charcoal that works well and I’m actually a fan of ingesting these pills after a night out on the town (not advising that you do that).
Citric Acid Helps
One thing that I always recommend people do is add a citric acid peel to their regimen. In addition to that, I strongly recommend that they consider avoiding using makeup if at all possible. Use makeup a couple times a week, that’s all and you’ll be in far better shape from a skin care perspective.
That’s just a few things that you can consider if you want to detox your skin this weekend. Remember, it’s all about being consistent. There’s something to be said for consistency in everything, so be consistent or fail, simple as that.
