Happy Friday! I’m so excited to share this post with you today! While thinking about what beauty products I wanted to share for the month of January, I thought, why not fill you in on how I’m detoxing my skin, so you can start your year off fresh too!
Since having my oldest daughter, I have struggled with adult acne. I know that I’m not alone in this battle, as many other adults share the same struggle. The products I’m going to show you below have really helped to clear my skin, and I hope that others might benefit from them as well!
- Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. Healthy skin starts from within. When I wake up, I mix 1-2 Tbs of this apple cider vinegar with 8oz. of warm water and drink it. It helps to detox the system. Although it has a pungent taste, it has really amazing health benefits! You can find this product at your local grocery store.
2. Organic coconut oil. Coconut oil is so amazing for you. Most know you can cook with it and that it’s great for your skin, but did you know that it also works as a makeup remover? Every evening I take about a tsp. of coconut oil and apply it directly to my dry skin, right over the top of my makeup. I then massage it in circular motions until all my eye makeup is loosened up. I know this sounds like a greasy crazy mess, but stick with me for my next step! Coconut oil contains anti-bacterial agents, so it will actually help with acne.
3. Cetaphil. So at this point, your face is covered in coconut oil. Now, wet your face with warm water and take a pump of Cetaphil and start to massage that into the skin. After cleansing for a minute, rinse thoroughly. I always follow up with one more round of cleansing with Cetaphil. This product is gentle, non-irritating, and won’t dry out your skin. When you finish cleansing, you will notice that your skin feels perfectly moisturized from the coconut oil. Because of this, I skip adding moisturizer.
4. Indian Healing Clay. Finally, I apply this Indian Healing Clay mask once a week. You mix equal parts of the clay with apple cider vinegar (which you already have!), and if your skin is very sensitive, you can dilute it with water. You will actually feel your skin pulsate!
I hope you will be able to benefit from these tips as much as I have! Do you have any skin secrets? Please share them with me in the comments below!
