WHY A SKIN DETOX?
Your skin is addicted
Do you know the feeling of wanting to apply cream to your face as quickly as possible after showering because your skin feels tight or burning?
There are substances in skincare products that your skin can become addicted to. That is, if you don't use them for a while, your skin reacts, for example with dryness or acne.
The most common addictive substance is mineral oil (also called paraffin, petroleum jelly or mineral oil) and is still used in many creams.
By applying this type of fat, you get a sealing layer on your skin and your sebum production becomes unbalanced. This leads to dehydration, faster skin aging, or more clogging. The tight, dry feeling makes you want to apply more quickly.
For users of lip balm, this is already a known phenomenon. But like all addictions, this one is not healthy either. Doing a skin detox gets you rid of it.
In addition to the mineral oils, your skin also clears other (skin-aging) substances such as synthetic perfumes or certain preservatives.
Do you want to have a clean skin that is optimally balanced? Then do the skin test to know which detox is best for your skin type.
