Victoria Schofield from Dermalogica explains how detox your skin this month!
With Christmas being the period where we over indulge on food and alcohol, we tend to stumble into January a few pounds heavier and with less than healthy looking skin! But fear not, here we have a collection of Dermalogica detoxing dynamos to help you get fit skin this new year.
Enter 2018 with a spring in your step and a glow to your face with these simple skin detoxing steps!
Harness the detoxing power of charcoal
After double cleansing skin to thoroughly remove make-up and impurities, follow with Daily Superfoliant to remove dulling dead skin cells and restore your glow! Activated Binchotan Charcoal adsorbs toxins and pollutants from deep within the pores whilst AHAs and skin smoothing enzymes resurface skin leaving it as smooth as silk.
For an extra detoxing boost, use your Charcoal Rescue Masque once or twice a week on congested areas such as the T zone or all over if indicated. In addition to the detoxifying Activated Bichotan Charcoal, Sulphur promotes cell turnover for dramatically brighter skin whilst Niacinamide helps reduce congestion and calm the skin.
Add an extra layer of protection
During the harsh winter months our skin often needs an extra layer of hydration and protection from the moisture zapping elements and indoor heated environments. Apply a few drops of Phyto Replenish Oil either underneath or into your moisturiser. This lightweight oil uses Tamanu, Chia Seed and Sunflower oils to strengthen, hydrate and shield the skins protective barrier giving dull winter skin its glow back.
Got an extra minute or two?
Use the Dewy Skin DIY technique to boost circulation, detoxify the skin, alleviate tension and promote the absorption of the nutrient rich actives in Phyto Replenish Oil.
Don't neglect your body skin
Don't forget to pay a little attention to your body skin this winter. Use Conditioning Body Wash, a rich skin conditioning botanical cleanser for the entire body. This soap-free gel with a nourishing lather delivers all-over cleansing without over-drying. Pro-Vitamin B5 helps moisturise to leave skin feeling soft and silky. Invigorating Tea Tree, Lemon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils gently purify as soothing essential oils of Sandalwood, Lavender, Orange and Clary Sage help condition and smooth. Use daily in the shower or add to running water for a luxurious bubble bath. Add your favourite scented candles then relax, unwind and de-stress.
For a power cleanse use with The Ultimate Buffing Cloth. A hygienic exfoliating cloth to buff and polish the body to silky perfection. Clean and exfoliate rough, dull skin in even the most hard-to-reach areas. Perfectly- sized for scrubbing the back and keeping skin super smooth. Made from extra-durable Nylon fibre that rinses clean and dries quickly.
