The skin is the body's largest organ and is constantly in contact with the elements, pollutants, and dirt, which can all clog pores. Many toxins from our diet can also cause the skin to suffer.
The solution? Detoxing the skin to reduce acne and redness.
But how can you naturally detox your skin? There are plenty of small steps you can take to detox!
Daily dry body brushing
This is most effective in the morning before a shower.
Using a dry body brush (preferably with natural bristles), brush all over your body in gentle circle motion towards your heart.
Start with your feet, then move onto your arms, bottom and back.
Use a daily detoxifying cleanser after your dry brushing.
2-3 times a week, soak for 20-30 minutes in a mix of pink Himalayan bath salts and magnesium flakes
Clay masques attract the positive charge of impurities and pull them to the surface of the skin.
To detoxify your skin from the inside out, cut back on sugar, opt for healthy fats, eat lots of fruit and veg, drink lots of water and exercise, making sure you regularly break a sweat.
When you start the detoxifying process, you might notice extra breakouts as the impurities work their way out – this is called skin purging [see more here], and is a healthy, temporary process.
