A simple detox to let your skin breathe this winter
Do you frequently wear makeup? If so, you may be suffocating your skin without even realising it, especially in the winter months.
You may be able to guess as to a leading cause of clogged pores, breakouts, and acne: yes, commercial skincare! Whilst these products may accentuate your features and provide us with confidence, lathering up your face with commercial materials damages the skin more than what meets the eye. As such, detoxing regularly should be an essential part of your skincare routine.
Then, when you add the changing seasons into the mix, it’s no surprise that colder weather can be harsh on your skin. In addition to trying to heal from make-up damage, your skin now faces an additional need: having to adapt to new temperatures and protect itself against the cold weather.
With winter being such a notorious season for dry skin and windburn, now is the perfect time to implement a detox routine in your skincare regime.
Here is a simple and efficient guide on how to go about doing so, while continuing to use natural skincare products like the ones we create here at Dream Cream.
Going make-up free for just two days a week, incorporating a weekly skin detox into your skin care routine could be your saving grace this winter. While going completely make-up free may feel like an unrealistic standard, letting your skin breathe and using trustworthy organic & natural products (such as our Dream Cream range) will drastically enhance the quality and health of your skin.
On day one of your detox, your skin will be naturally pushing dirt and grime out from your pores, releasing the toxins, and trying to self-rejuvenate. To help this cleansing process along, you can use a natural product such as Dream Cream’s Oil Cleanse: a gentle cleansing oil made with quality plant derived Organic Oils and Certified Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils; to remove dirt and pore clogging debris without stripping your skin of its natural oils.
On day two, you can treat your skin to an organic scrub such as Dream Cream's Face Scrub. This will help exfoliate your skin and get rid of the leftover debris and dirt that was pulled from the pores of your skin the day before. After using a safe organic scrub, it’s time to let your face rest, using only water for your night-time rinse. Then lightly apply a natural oil-based moisturising cream such as our Face Gold or Face Cream to help your skin rejuvenate.
So, it’s time to say goodbye to the build-up of dirt, grime, and chemicals clinging to your skin from commercial skincare products. And there is so much to gain in doing so! Detoxing your skin with natural products can be satisfying and extremely rewarding, leaving you with results you can see and feel. There is really no downside to investing in your skin’s health. Who doesn't want fresh, smooth, youthful, and hydrated skin this winter, and all year round?
We recommend regular use of all-natural products as part of your daily routine, along with a weekly make-up detox to keep your skin radiant.
The suggested regular use of our Dream Cream products is:
Oil Cleanse followed by either Face Gold or Face Cream daily, (preferably twice daily).
Face Scrub, followed by either Face Gold or Face Cream 2 – 3 times a week.
Enjoy beautiful skin with Dream Cream!
