We can’t wait for it either, and we’re here to teach you how to give your skin a fabulous skin detox in just four simple steps. Just make sure to stay with us and keep on reading, because here are some useful tips and tricks on how to make that happen. Check them out and enjoy!

First of all, switch to a healthier diet

The first and one of the most important things that significantly affect your skin is your diet, so be sure you do whatever you need to improve it. First of all, you should stay away from processed foods as much as possible, since they’re rich in artificially added sugars and empty calories that can do more harm than good – both for your skin and your overall health.

That’s exactly why you should switch to a healthier diet that includes a lot of fresh fruits and veggies, as well as protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. You should always bear in mind that foods rich in antioxidants, like cranberries, blackberries, pecans, and even dark chocolate can fight inflammation and delay the process of aging, too, and incorporating them into your diet is certainly one of the best ways to give your skin a detox.

Use gentle scrubs and try dry body brushing

Exfoliation can also be quite useful for your skin, especially between the seasons, which is why you should find a good gentle scrub appropriate for your skin type. You can also make a homemade scrub from scratch, and that’s a fantastic way to come up with a fabulous product without breaking the bank. You can use such a scrub on both your face and your body, just make sure not to exfoliate too often – two to three times a week will be more than enough.

On the other hand, dry body brushing supports your body’s lymphatic system and detoxification process by improving your lymphatic flow, eliminating the toxins, and reducing your cellulite. You should do it in the morning before you take a shower – start with using light pressure and then move on to firmer strokes. Begin with the lower body, and then move on to your hands, arms, back, chest, and abdomen.  Do it for about 2-3 minutes, until your skin is rosy and slightly tingly.

Opt for quality cosmeceutical skincare products

We believe that a lot of women all across the world have made some New Year’s resolutions regarding their health and beauty in general. And if you’re one of them, you should know that spring is the perfect time to make your skincare resolution happen! You should definitely try out cosmeceutical skin care this spring, as such products are much more than regular creams and serums. In fact, cosmeceuticals are made from active ingredients with much smaller molecular structure, which is exactly why they can penetrate deeper into your skin and nourish it from within.

The fact that they can get deep into the skin basically means that these ingredients can change the living cells and positively affect the way they function, for example, by helping them produce more collagen and therefore reducing or preventing wrinkles. If you’re up for that, you should definitely give cosmeceuticals a try!

Make sure you incorporate amazing facial masks into your routine

Facial masks are another great way of giving your skin exactly what it needs in just a couple of minutes, so be sure not to forget them this spring either. Similarly to healthy green smoothies that can detoxify your body from within, such masks are extremely helpful when it comes to detoxifying your skin as they can cleanse your pores and eliminate the trapped dirt, makeup residue, and excess oils.

Korean sheet masks may be the best possible choice, since the cotton sheet acts as a seal that prevents the beneficial ingredients from evaporating. That’s how those ingredients penetrate into your skin and hydrate it to the max, which is what you need between the seasons. When the impurities are removed and your skin is nourished, you’ll see a fantastic improvement!

As you can see, there are so many ways to give your skin a fabulous detox this spring. Switching to a healthier diet is an absolute must, as well as using gentle scrubs, dry body brushing, opting for quality cosmeceuticals, and incorporating facial masks into your everyday skin routine. Just be sure not to skip any of these steps, and you’ll manage to accomplish that without any doubt!
