3 Healthy Ways To Detox Your Skin

3 Healthy Ways To Detox Your Skin

Discover our top three products you can count on during a detox phase and help your skin to glow from within.

1. How to make the most of the detoxification process.

Detoxing your skin is the same as detoxing your body and is recommended to eliminate pollutants. Skincare that harnesses the power of natural ingredients are best to assist with detoxification; they will be a much closer match to your skin’s receptors, allowing the skin to absorb every beneficial ingredient safely and comfortably. Paired with fresh, natural foods that flush out toxins, the results are immediate. The targeted detoxification of your body over a certain period can significantly revive your energy levels, improve your mental wellbeing, and generate a fresh complexion. However, detoxifying can be hard on the body, and certain side effects may arise. In this post, founder, Susanne Kaufmann reveals which three products she counts on during a detox phase. (It’s never too late to hit the reboot button on your immune system!)

2. Detox

Our body releases toxins via the digestive tract and the detoxification organs. However, if the liver, intestines, kidneys reach their limit, toxins are stored in the fatty tissue, and subsequently in the body tissue. During a detox lasting several days, the body will turn to the fat stores of energy reserves usually around the fourth day. Whether you are intermittently fasting, reducing your sugar/salt intake, or cutting back on the occasional glass of wine, you may begin to feel certain side effects. During this phase, your body is working hard, and symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, digestive problems, and blemishes may be noticeable as you go into detox. Now is the time to gently support the body.

3. Essential Care

If toxins are emitted through the skin, impurities or dry, irritated areas can form. Susanne relies on these signs to signal the need for basic and gently clarifying care:

  • Facial cleansing with alkaline water: Mix a small amount (about ½ teaspoon) of our Alkali Salt Deacidifying in a bowl of lukewarm water to deacidify the water, and clean the face, neck, and décolletage with a soft washcloth or cotton pad. Careful to avoid the eye area!

  • Active Agent Concentrate Clarifying: During skin emergencies, our founder, Susanne relies on the herbaceous complex contained in our Active Agent Concentrate Clarifying: plantain, masterwort, and linden blossom, which calms and clarifies the skin without drying out the irritated areas.

  • Purifying Clay Mask: To harmonise the production of sebum during the detox process, and to support the deep cleansing of the skin, Susanne uses the Purifying Clay Mask developed with white kaolin clay and aloe vera. These two mineral ingredients are decongestants, soothing, and antimicrobial. In addition, willow herb and cucumber essences refine the pores. Apply to the skin for no longer than 15 minutes and gently remove with warm water.

  • Top Tip: To encourage the toxins out of your system, make sure to stay hydrated throughout the day. Why not try our Detoxification Tea to stimulate your metabolism for a deep inner cleanse.
