Detoxifying Your Skin


When I was growing up, I suffered from acne. It wasn't a severe case by any means, but it was moderate and to the point that I asked my parents to please take me to a dermatologist. Years of treatment later, my acne has pretty much subsided with the occasional break out here and there but there was some irreversible damage left over from my at home antics. The area directly beneath my under eyes has been left with enlarged pores and redness that requires some extra attention in my skincare.

Washing my face with acne based products can be over drying to my already dry skin. Since my skin is still acne prone, I try to make sure that I thoroughly cleanse my skin so I don't leave dirt behind and clog my pores. One way that I am able to care for my needs is with appropriate face masks. I find that ones made with natural and organic ingredients are the best for my sensitive skin. One that I have been using twice a week is Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask

This mask contains key ingredients such as kaolin clay, hibiscus, and cranberry fibers. These help draw out impurities, improve skin tone, and tighten pores. The mask also works as a gentle exfoliater. When you are ready to remove it simply apply some water to your face and rub it in a circular motion and let the cranberry fibers remove the dead skin cells allowing for more smoother and even skin. The spirulina in it hydrates the skin and allows for tissue regeneration. My skin feel clean and refreshed after every use. 

If you want to try this mask or any of the amazing products over at Valentia, they were kind enough to offer us a discount code good until June 1.

    1. Try using one made from organic products or one specifically for sensitive skin. You are bound to find one.
