Can You Detox Your Skin?

Every day our skin is exposed to a variety of external influences such as pollution (indoor and outdoor), the sun’s harmful UV rays or free radicals. Our skin frequently comes in contact with toxins and if you ever feel like your skin needs a detox you are probably right. Detoxing your skin regularly can help your skin can look and feel youthful. We find out how exactly you can help detox your skin.

Is It Possible To Detox Your Skin?

“Our skin is exposed to daily pollution and free radicals,” says Garnier consulting dermatologist Dr. Diane Madfes. “We need to detox our skin by cleansing and applying a moisturizer every day. Our skin has an amazing ability to regenerate but needs a little help to repair daily damage from free radicals. Apply products formulated with antioxidants, essential oils and peptides to help skin maintain its youthful radiance every day.”

3 Products To Help Detox Your Skin

1. Charcoal Formulated Mask/Cleanser

If you have oily or combination skin enlist the power of a charcoal formulated cleanser to cleanse pollutants and free radicals off of skin’s surface. Garnier SkinActive’s Pore Purifying 2-in-1 Clay Cleanser/Mask has a creamy clay-based formula and is a great product to use to ensure your skin is fully clean. The formula is infused with charcoal and attracts impurities and toxins like a magnet to remove them from your skin’s surface to reveal a glowing complexion.

2. Antioxidant-Formulated Cleanser

Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals so it’s great to use both an antioxidant formulated cleanser and moisturizer to cleanse and protect your skin. Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Invigorating Daily Scrub infused with refreshing peppermint can instantly energize skin for a healthy look.

3. Vitamin-C Formulated Moisturizer

Moisturizer is an essential part of your skin detox and should follow right after your cleanser. Use a product formulated with skin-brightening Vitamin C to revitalize your skin and protect it from free radicals. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 protects your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays and free radicals. It also can turn dull, rough skin into smooth, polished-looking skin with a more radiant, even tone.
