Detox: Reboot And Side Effects

Back to list

Support your skin during the detoxification process.

If you hit the reboot button on your immune system at the beginning of the year, your body will be thankful. Detox – the targeted detoxification of our body over a certain period of time – can allow us to awaken new energies, shed a few kilos, and generate a fresh complexion. Since detoxifying the body is hard work, a few side effects such as impure or dry skin can be noticeable. In this post, Susanne Kaufmann reveals which three products she counts on during a detox phase.


Detox. Our body excretes toxins via the digestive tract and the detoxification organs. However, if the liver, intestines, kidneys, and gallbladder reach their processing capacities, toxins are stored in the fatty tissue, and subsequently in the body tissue. During a detox lasting several days, the body turns to the fat stores of energy reserves around the fourth day. This releases toxins that return to the bloodstream. While water-soluble toxins are processed by the liver and kidneys and excreted in urine, fat-soluble toxins remain in the body for as long as the liver and intestinal circulatory system takes to eliminate them. Our body is working hard during this phase, and at times, symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, digestive problems, and blemishes may be noticeable. It is then time to gently support the body.


Care. If toxins are excreted through the skin, impurities or dry, itchy areas may form. Susanne Kaufmann 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 the Susanne Kaufmann Alkali Salt in a bowl of lukewarm water to deacidify the water, and clean the face, neck, and décolleté with a soft washcloth or cotton pad. Avoid the eye area!
  • Clarifying Active Agent: During skin emergencies, Susanne relies on the herbaceous complex contained in this concentrate: plantain, masterwort, and linden blossom, which calms and clarifies the skin without drying out the irritated areas.
  • Healing Earth Mask: In order to harmonize the production of sebum during the detox process, and to support the deep cleansing of the skin, Susanne uses the Healing Earth Mask of green clay and zinc oxide. These two mineral ingredients are decongestants, soothing, and antimicrobial. In addition, willow herb and cucumber essences refine the pores. The mask can be applied selectively or over a large area. After about 15 minutes and a little drying, it should be gently removed with a damp washcloth.


During detox, you should drink more than usual, which will help eliminate toxins even more efficiently. Have you tried our Detox Tea? Your skin will be pleased with this refreshing treatment and will thank you with a radiant and clear complexion!
