“Detox” has been one of the trendiest buzzwords of recent years. You might’ve tried a matter of diet detoxes with juice cleanses and meal plans after extra indulgent vacays. Or maybe you drank detox tea to get rid of excess bloat before a big event (where you’ll potentially be in a tight dress). But what about a detox for the biggest organ in your body?
No matter what you think about the trending buzzword, you can’t deny there are days when your skin could use a detox. Some days our skin is extra dull or breaking out, especially after long vacations, and we know it’s because we slept in our makeup, ate too much bad food, neglected our skin after beach days, or, god forbid, all of the above. If any other part of your body isn’t functioning properly, from your gut (too much junk food) to your brain (too much stress), it can show up on your skin because your pores get clogged up when trying to compensate for the other incorrectly functioning systems in your body.
A facial detox means dedicating one week (or whatever your schedule allows) to removing all impurities, toxins, pollutants, and dead skin cells possible to renew and revitalize your skin back to how it normally looks — or, maybe if you detox right, better than it’s ever been before.
