How To Detox Redhead Skin: From One Redhead To Another

Whether I’m getting home from my outside-all-day job or from a challenging hike, the first thing I like to do is detox my redhead skin. After any form of exercise or sweating, it’s good to get the dirt out of your pores as soon as possible. I prefer running to going to the gym (it’s free and I get to come home immediately and collapse in the grass) but when I do hit the gym, I make sure to bring a travel-sized bottle of face wash so that I don’t have to sit in the car knowing that my skin is going to break out at any second.

Even on days when you’re not exercising, it can be just as good for your mind as it is for your skin to give it a good detox.

1. Light Facial Exfoliator

First, I use a light facial exfoliator that’s good for sensitive skin. This is a great way to clean deep down into pores to remove any makeup, sweat or dirt. I rub the exfoliator in small, circular motions all over my face and neck, and then I splash my face with water to make sure all of it is washed off. This leaves your skin feeling baby smooth!

2. Liquid Face Wash

Secondly, I use a liquid face wash to clean the remainder of what is left behind in the surface after my pores have been cleared. You’ll notice how smooth your skin feels already from this double dose of detox! Instead of using my hands to splash my face with water, I allow the waterfall to do the rinsing, which feels very natural and relaxing.

3. Gently Pat Skin Dry

Once I’m all done washing, I take a soft towel and gently pat my skin dry. Rubbing your skin with a towel will only irritate it; allow for the products to do their job to soothe your skin.

4. Argan Oil & Coconut Oil

I have always sworn by argan oil and coconut oil as amazing moisturizers. Now that your pores have been opened by the warm water and exfoliation, massaging oil into your skin in circular motions allows for your skin to fully soak up all of the good nutrients. This is a great last step to your skin detox because you are able to feel the smoothness of your skin after its cleanse, all while relaxing with a personal oil massage.

Enjoy your beautiful redhead skin. Rock it like a Redhead!
