This Is Why You NEED To Detox!
The word “Detox” has been everywhere recently. We usually associate it with trendy diets or specialty drinks that will make you magically drop 20 pounds in 20 days. While taking good care of your body is always important don’t forget to take care of your body’s largest organ, the skin. That’s right, its just as important to detox the outside as well as the inside. You might be thinking “why do I even need to detox my skin?” and “how can I detox at home?” Well sit back and let us explain, it’s easier than you think.
Why you should detox:
To sum it up, oil, dirt, makeup, pollutants and other gross things clog our pores making our skin look dull and aged. Detoxing will remove any buildup in our pores and protect our skin from further damage. Simple, right? Well, not really, there’s actually a bit more to it that most people don’t know about.
You see, we used to think that the most harmful thing for our skin was sun exposure. Turns out we were wrong. Recent studies that shown that pollution is one of the top causes of skin damage. Specifically things like diesel exhaust and soot tend to get stuck in your pores causing wrinkles and changes in skin pigmentation. On top of that there is the threat of ozone gasses that decrease the amount of antioxidants in skin. Plus all of these pollutants affect the skin even more on a hot day or if your skin tends to be dry.
You might be thinking “no problem! I spend most days indoors anyways!” well guess what? There are plenty of things indoors that damage your skin too like computers, TV’s and tablets just to name a few. High Energy Visible light (aka HEV or blue light) penetrates the skin deeper than harmful UV rays and causes the same aging effects as the sun. Primarily it cases a decrease in collagen production and increases pigmentation.
