It’s Spring! Time to Detox Your Body, Skin and Hair
Michela Marra | Friday March 24th 2017
It’s time to detox our body, face and hair. Spring is a time of great awakenings and healing for our body which needs to rid itself of toxins both inside and out. Here’s how to detox and a list of products to use that will make your detox extra effective.
DETOX FOR YOUR SKIN
Cleansing morning and night is actually the first step in skin care throughout the seasons. The next step is nourishing, hydrating and protecting skin from the sun’s rays. Choose cosmetics that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and oils which reconstruct the hydrolipidic layer. At least once a week, apply a detox mask to the skin on your face or use a purifying scrub: it helps eliminate dead cells and revitalise skin as well as improving your face’s brightness.

It contains Grape, Argan Oil, Green Tea and Clary sage stem cell extracts which protect and nourish the skin, while Tara galactomannans hydrate dry skin. The Fomes officinalis exerts a tightening action on pores, rosemary and lavender extracts purify and finally, Ginkgo Biloba extract unclogs, and is soothing and antioxidant.
Skinfood Freshmade Mask Lemon is a mask which hydrates and illuminates thanks to the vitamin C.
The key word is purification: goodbye to all the toxins and drugs accumulated over the past few months. Choose a diet that includes plenty of fresh, coloured vegetables, in particular, orange once since they contain beta-carotene, red-purple ones for their anthocyanins, and green ones for their vitamin E. Once you have purified your internal organs, you can move on to your external organs, that is, the skin on your body. Slimming creams, scrubs and hydrating solutions will be part of your new spring beauty routine.
