So, be kind to your skin and give your skin that much needed break from those unwanted chemicals for at least a couple of days or a week. If you can’t quit, lighten it up and use less makeup products.
2. Get a Facial:
Detox your skin by a facial, for best results it is advised to get it done by a professional salon. Facial is a great way to remove impurities and remove excess sebum. It will also clear out pores and rejuvenate skin. It is a great way to de-stress your mind and skin.
3. Dry Brushing:
Dry brushing is an another way to remove toxins from your entire body. Dry body brushing helps to shed off dead skin cells and encourages new cell growth which results in smoother and brighter skin. It can also help with remove ingrown hair. Regular dry brushing can also reduce the appearance of cellulite as cellulite is toxic material accumulated in your body’s fat cells.
How to Dry Brush at Home:
• You need a natural bristle brush (avoid the one made from nylon or synthetic materials). Preferably with a long handle which will help you reach all areas of the body.
• Start on dry skin before bathing.
• Work in gentle circular, upward motions.
• Begin at the ankles in circular upwards movements towards the heart –as the lymphatic fluid flows through the body towards the heart, so one should brush in the same direction.
• Your back is the only exception to this rule. Brush from the neck down to the lower back.
• Finish the process with a good moisturiser or coconut oil. Massage it while applying to reap full benefits.
• Get a relaxing warm shower after 15 minutes.
• Follow this for 20 days to complete your body detox. (Thank me later)
