Heard of skin detox? Some tips to help give your skin some rest
The word ‘detox’ maybe be overused and overheard, but on days we eat junk food, sleep with our makeup on and not drink enough water, our body really needs detoxification. Thus, it is important to at least squeeze out a week in a month or two to give the skin some love and care. If you do not take enough care for it, it shows up when the pores of your skin get clogged.
Ahead, we tell you the top three ways to help detox your skin.

There are times when our body has a hard time handling our callousness, this is where steam works best. Exposing your face or your body to steam opens up pores allowing for better extraction of dirt. To steam your face, boil a pot of water and then swiftly transfer it to a bowl. Hover your face close to the bowl and drape your head with a towel, concentrating the steam to your facial pores. This helps the pores to open up allowing for the dirt to be removed easily.
Drink water (only water!)Drinking water is an important step in detoxing your body, inside and out. (Photo: Thinkstock Images)
Nothing like water; and we cannot stress on this point enough. Try skipping alcohol and drink enough water to hydrate yourself and flush out toxins. If you want a better detox plan, add fresh juices with enough fibre content. This not only helps you feel fuller, but the fibre also helps with the body’s digestion process. Try ditching dairy and sugar. Following this regularly and not just as a detox tip will help your skin become better and breathe.
