the period where we over indulge on food and alcohol, we tend to stumble into

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
There's nothing I love more at the weekend than a lovely soak in the bath and kindle time! I also love to give my skin a good weekly facial and apply a masque to work on my skin while I relax!
Depending on how my skin is looking and feeling I like to use a couple of different masques on my skin to make sure I am treating any skin problems.
My main skincare concerns are ageing (fine lines around my eyes and laughter lines), congestion (blackeads) on my nose and chin and dryness/dehydration on my cheeks.
Charcoalis the big beauty buzzword for 2017! It's no secret that activated charcoal is considered a powerhouse when it comes to adding a boost to your skincare regimen. So what is it and how does it benefit your skin?
Activated charcoal is carbon that has been treated to increase its absorbency. It can draw dirt and grime from deep within pores, clearing unwanted bacteria, chemicals, dirt and excess oils. The toxins stick to the activated charcoal like a magnet.
It has been proven to absorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances, which is why it's become such a popular ingredient in face masks, deep cleansers and detoxifying products.
