How I Detox My Skin
A mask every week is a weekly ritual for me!
I have many different masks that I try every week but two of my favorites are purifying clay masks (no, they are not just for oily skin types/acne prone skin) and hydrating masks. Everyone can benefit from detoxifying their skin. My skin type is normal with a slightly oily t-zone and I do this every other week (usually on Sundays but this week on a Tuesday) just to keep my skin looking flawless.
Benefits of detoxifying your skin:
- Decongests pores
- Deep cleanse
- Healthy, glowing skin
- Smoother skin
- Exfoliation (stimulates collagen production)
- Reduces breakouts and acne
- Allows better absorption of other products.
All the skincare I use is based on products WITHOUT any toxic ingredients and that are vegan/cruelty-free. This is why Derma E has become one of my favorite skincare lines.
Derma E is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, without parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, petrolatum, mineral oil, artificial colors, gluten, soy, or GMOs. Which is why I'm OBSESSEDwith them and I truly love what they stand for as a company (they are constantly striving to lessen our impact on the environment and improve conservation efforts). Everything they do considers people and our planet💛🌎.
Since I also exfoliate every week, I do a detox mask every other week (click here to read more on exfoliation and what I use). I'm currently loving the Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask (click here to shop). It has natural clays such as Kaolin and Bentonite, activated Charcoal, Apricot Seed Powder, Kimarine Wakame, and Bladderwrack. Not only does it decongests your pores but it also gently exfoliates leaving a smoother healthier appearance. It really revives my skin!
After the detox, I do a hydrating mask and I just let that baby sit and absorb for about 30 minutes. I love the Derma E Hydrating Clay Mask (click here to shop). It contains Hyaluronic Acid, Olive, Green Tea, Avocado, Cupuacu Butter, Jojoba Oil, Aloe and Vitamin E. It feels amazing and my skin soaks it all up! I ran out of it so I used my Darphin Hydrating Kiwi Mask tonight.
Detox/purifying masks tend to soak up all the moisture on your skin, therefore, do a hydrating mask right after or apply a very hydrating moisturizer, serum, or oil.
