There are some ingredients that cleanse your skin from all the impurities caused by the smog.
In the same way of our bodies, our skin need to be protected.
Detox lifestyle is more than just a cleanse diet, it’s a total-body program that passes through the skin too.
Allure.com (and all the grandmas in the world!) recommend five detox ingredients that will give to your skin a new shiny life.
THE 5 GRANDMA’S INGREDIENTS TO DETOX YOUR SKIN AT HOME:
Sea salt is the first: a natural scrubs that have an incredible moisturizing effect. Sea salt gently smoothes your skin, making it soft.
Antioxidants are another fundamental step to protect your skin from pollution, decreasing the damage of smog. You have to seek beauty products which contain Vitamin C and botanical, natural antioxidant.
It is also recommended to eat fruit and vegetables containing vitamins and idebenone, like pomegranade, mangosteen and red berries.
Charcoal works like a vacuum, because it absorbs the dirt out of pores. Charcoal masks work miracles, because it give the charcoal a little time to work under the skin.
Soft clay is a 2.0 version of the classic clay masks. It work like the charcoal, but with the addiction of it, soft clay hydrate the skin, because it is mixed to botanical oils.
And last but not least, algae is the ultimate must-have beauty trend to detox your skin, because it contains detoxifying minerals. The facial mask is always the most recommended, because leave time to the product to work.
