Something about starting a new year makes me want to detox my life, wardrobe, and skin. I know that sounds typical and everyone says that but it is so true! I love to start fresh with an area of my life each new year. One area I’ve been focused on before the new year and now into the new year is my skin. I used to think I was taking care of my skin but I started noticing my skin was losing the healthy look and glow I wanted. All it took to see an improvement was an effort to improve the ways I cared for my skin and a few good products.
Over the last few months, I’ve tried some great products and the results have been great. I’ve experimented with cleansers, serums, scrubs, masks, and primers just to name a few. Most of the products I’ve used are natural based products with powerful anti-aging benefits. The most recent product I’ve tried is a charcoal mask and detox scrub c/o of DERMA E. This scrub and mask are detox-focused products. I like the message presented by the DERM E brand. Their message is based on ethical beauty. They are focused on offering natural skin care products that are cruelty, artificial color, gluten, and paraben free. I like using simple and effective products with ingredients that are meant to improve, heal, and protect the skin.
Deep Cleansing Routine
I have oily skin and one of the most important steps in my skin care routine is deep cleaning my skin. My skin quickly gathers buildup from makeup and the buildup leads to breakouts. I have to be consistent with using a deep cleaning product to remove buildup or I can expect a breakout to happen. I usually deep clean my skin with a scrub, mask, or exfoliating brush one time a week.
I liked the refreshing clean feeling of the detox scrub the most. Before using the charcoal mask, I suggest testing on a small area before a full application. Charcoal masks aren’t for everyone, especially sensitive skin. The charcoal mask and detox scrub are great products I can use in rotation to keep my skin clear of buildup and breakouts. If you haven’t given this brand a try check them out, there are tons of awesome products to browse!
