Why you should detox your skin!
The skin is the body’s largest organ and a natural detoxifier, but even it needs help staying pure.
This is why:
Air Pollution contains PAHs, which is Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons. This can lead to skin cancer, dehydration, compromised barrier function, inflammation, loss of elasticity, firmness and uneven skin tone.
Smoking just one a day can constrict blood flow in the skin for up to 90 minutes.
More stress can lead to more oil production, more redness and slower cell turnover.
Heavy use of sunscreen and makeup without deep cleansing can lead to skin dullness, congestion and irritation.
Did you know?
The skin can shed 30,000 dead skin cells every minutes and generate 3.4 fluid ounces of sweat every day. The average person spends only 20 seconds washing their face. No wonder skin can look tired and lacklustre and times!
4 ways to snap dull skin back into shape
For a brighter, healthier glow, cut down on the main toxins above and apply these steps into your regular skin care routine:
Deep Cleanse. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables and drinking at least eight glasses of water a day helps your skin flush out toxins from the inside. But to thoroughly remove product build-up from the outside, make sure you are double cleansing daily. Using Dermalogica Precleanse or Dermalogica Precleanse Balm, followed with your favourite Dermalogica Cleanser.
Exfoliate. Step up your game by using a gentle formula like Dermalogica Daily Resurfacer or Daily Microfoliant. The goal is to frequently slough away dulling, dead skin cells and toxins that you are purging from your skin.
Detoxify. Apply a masque whenever your skin needs a fast pick-me-up, reach for a formula that contains ingredients like Activated Charcoal, to help adsorb dirt and impurities. We recommend Dermalogica Charcoal Masque.
Hydrate. Complete your detox regimen by keeping your skin's moisture levels balanced. Go for a moisturiser that contains Hyaluronic Acid or Sodium Hyaluronate. We love Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream and Active Moist.
