Wondering why the skincare that worked wonders initially, has suddenly stopped showing results?
Well, like all the other detox’s in your lives, diet, digital and relationship, you also need a skin detox.
It works like this- like all the other organ of your body, your skin gets affected by the repercussions of polluted air, poor diet, alcohol, alcohol, smoking, stress and even product buildup.
These are the 5 signs your skin needs a detox-
1.Your skin is dull and flaky.
Healthy skin cells are stacked with oils and hydration that keep the skin looking moist and supple.
Being continuously in indoor heat or conditioned air affects the natural oil balance of the skin resulting in flaky, rough skin.
In order to detox your skin, you can treat your skin with a herbal steam from time to time.
And follow by deep moisturizing it with skincare containing ingredients like glycerin, hyaluronic acid, petrolatum etc.
2. Your skincare routine isn’t really working well on your skin.
It can get confusing and even frustrating at times when your usual skincare isn’t showing the same results as before.
What you don’t know is that its not just about the skincare, it’s actually about the skin bearing all the buildup from the regular use of makeup, environmental damage and even consistent use of chemical based skincare.
Give your skin a fresh start by doing deep exfoliation by using a gentle face scrub opening unclogging the blocked pores without stripping your skin’s natural oils.
Brightening exfoliating mask-
- Apricot seed powder (2 tbsp.)
- Ground oats (2 tbsp.)
- Vitamin E Oil (2 drops)
Make a paste with water and apply on the face as a mask for 10 min. Wash it off with cold water to reveal a fresh glowing skin.
- Uneven skin tone
Ever notice uneven patches and blotches under your foundation or concealer on an otherwise flawless skin? That’s because your skin has either undergone too much of sun exposure or you have been sleeping with your makeup on or just plain ignoring your skin’s needs.
This is when you need to give your skin an extra dose of antioxidants to rectify the damage done to it.

- Your skin gets too oily or too dry in some areas.
Combination is a skin type, we all know, but sometimes your skin starts to act funny and gets unevenly over dry or over oily in some areas. Well, that’s because you haven’t been having your fill of hydration or maybe ignoring your skin’s need for right amount of moisture.
To detoxify your skin you can treat your skin with hydrating creams containing hyaluronic acid that act as a humectant and helps build up the skin’s hydration levels.
Though your skin gets affected and reflects what is going on inside your bodies but it’s nearly impossible to live a stress free life, eating only pure food and breathing only clean air. Just that from time to time you can give your skin some extra pampering that it’s craving for.
So, if you are not glowing with youthful vitality and the skincare products don’t seem to be working effectively enough, may be its time to give yourself a ‘Skin Detox’.
