The Best Skincare Ingredients And Tips For A Skin Detox

 

Use a face mask with bentonite and kaolin clay

Bentonite and kaolin are two of the most popular cosmetic clays and you’ll usually find them in the best detoxifying face masks.

Bentonite clay detoxifies skin by absorbing oils, dirt and toxins which attach themselves to the clay. When the clay is cleansed from the skin, the debris is washed away with it. 

Kaolin clay acts in the same way but has a more fine-grained texture than bentonite and its absorption properties are milder. It’s a good choice for normal to dry skin that may find bentonite too strong. 

Using a clay mask as a step in your skin detox can help aid in the removal of impurities, target acne forming bacteria, and generally leave the skin smoother and softer. 

We recommend: Soft Skin Refining Charcoal Clay Booster Mask

 

Include a serum with activated charcoal, a detox powerhouse!

Like clay, the molecules of activated charcoal attract toxins, dirt, and chemicals from the skin to be easily washed away. It assists in removing deeper impurities from the skin and unclogging pores. The result is smoother, more clarified skin.  

If your skin is breaking out even more soon after using a charcoal skincare product, don’t worry. It’s common to experience a ‘purging’ phase as the charcoal draws out impurities from deep within the skin. 

We recommend: Detoxifying Exfoliating Charcoal Serum

 

Double cleanse in the evening

If you’re not doing it already, double up your cleansing step in the evening. 

During the day your skin faces environmental aggressors, including air pollution. Toxic nanoparticles from air pollution can actually lodge themselves in the surface of the skin and trigger free radical activity. 

Free radicals are responsible for a host of skin issues, from dullness to accelerating the signs of premature ageing. 

Double cleansing skin in the evening is an effective way to detox your skin from pollution particles and other environmental stressors from the day. The first cleanse removes makeup, SPF, and excess oil while the second cleanse clears the skin of any stubborn debris still sticking around.

We recommend: The Uncomplicated Cleanser. You may like to follow with The Uncomplicated Cleanser Plus Charcoal as a detoxifying facial cleanser for the second round if you’re dealing with oily skin, breakouts and congestion.

 

Detox your makeup

Treat your skin to a cleaner makeup routine by avoiding cosmetic products that contain formaldehyde-related preservatives. Formaldehyde is a toxic chemical and is linked with common preservatives in cosmetic products including DM hydantoin, phthalates, and oxybenzone. 

Consider switching to mineral makeup formulations that don’t contain irritating preservatives that can cause skin problems.

Containing healthy minerals, including skin-friendly silica, mineral makeup also has the added benefit of helping to heal and condition the skin while you wear it. It offers additional SPF protection when teamed with your daily sunscreen and is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones.

We recommend: The esmi range of mineral foundation, BB cream, and powder.

 

Ideas For Detoxing Your Skin From The Inside Out

 

Support your detoxifying skin care products with healthy eating and lifestyle choices to truly maximise the benefits of a skin detox.

 

Sip herbal teas formulated for detoxification

Drinking tea can be very beneficial in supporting your skin detox. Choose teas that are formulated with herbs to promote detoxification and keep your body hydrated.  

Some effective herbs, spices and root plants to consider using in your tea-tox include: 

Burdock root - Brimming with antioxidants, burdock root provides a host of benefits, including potential skin healing for issues such as acne and psoriasis.

Dandelion root - Research has found the properties in dandelion root tea can assist in helping detoxify the liver.

Milk thistle - Assists in promoting the regeneration of new healthy cells and supports the cleansing process by removing toxins. 

Tumeric - With potent antioxidants that fight free radical damage, turmeric can aid liver and skin detoxification when brewed in a tea. 

Green tea - Another antioxidant powerhouse, drinking green tea makes a detoxifying, skin-supporting swap for your regular latte.

 

Give yourself a lymphatic face massage

When you stimulate the circulation in the lymphatic system through massage, you assist your body in draining fluids and toxins away from your cells for proper elimination. Massage stimulates circulation which encourages an overall improvement in skin tone and brightness. 

A lymphatic face massage is something simple enough to do yourself at home but it’s advisable to consult a health practitioner first. 

 

Experiment with celery juice

The humble celery stalk has received a surge in attention recently thanks to its skin healing, anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also incredibly rich in minerals and hydrating. 

 

Cut out sugar

Eliminating sugary foods from your plate for a time is detox 101!

Depending on how much sugar you usually eat, it could be a shock to the system. It’s common to experience withdrawal symptoms so your best approach could be to ease into a sugar detox slowly. 

 

Drink plenty of water

During a skin detox stepping up your water intake is key. Sip plain water, water flavoured with herbs and fruit pieces, or alternate with glasses of coconut water for a natural electrolyte boost. 

None of the suggestions above should be taken as medical advice. We encourage you to consult with your medical or holistic practitioner to choose a skin cleanse diet or approach that’s right for you.

5 Reasons Your Skin May Be Acting Up

5 Reasons Your Skin May Be Acting Up

READ MORE

Dealing with skin concerns that seem to have appeared out of nowhere? Your skin is giving you clues that something isn’t right. Here are 5 reasons your skin might be acting up and what to do about them.  

 

Change In Weather

 

Skin concerns: Dryness, sensitivity, and breakouts

A change in the weather - especially a drop to colder temperatures - can spark a host of skin concerns.

In cold weather, the skin has to work harder to maintain hydration. Low humidity and cold days coupled with heated indoor spaces can damage the skin’s barrier. 

Cracks begin to form in the outer layer of skin which causes a loss of hydration and inflammation. 

On the flip side, warm, humid temperatures can also exacerbate skin concerns for oily skin types such as breakouts and blocked pores. 

Skincare solutions

Customise your skincare routine depending on the season to target the specific skin care concerns for that time of year. During the colder months, focus on treatments like masks and serums that add hydration. 

In summer, rich and creamy moisturisers may feel too heavy. Try lighter oils or moisturisers and choose a cleanser that gently exfoliates the skin - preventing clogged pores and breakouts. 

Remember: No matter the season daily SPF protection is a must!

 

Allergies

 

Skin concerns: Irritation, breakouts, and sensitivity

When sensitive skin is exposed to certain household and laundry cleaning products  a red, swollen, itchy rash called contact dermatitis can develop. 

While cleaning products are usually the most common culprit, they’re not the only thing that can trigger common skin conditions. Certain synthetic fabrics, fragrances, cosmetics, metals, and even organic materials like plants can be the cause.

Other signs of an allergic skin irritation can be sudden breakouts or skin that isn’t normally reactive becoming overly sensitive. 

Skincare solutions

If you’re experiencing skin problems, check any new products (household or beauty products) you’ve introduced to your routine or your home. Stop using them and see if your skin concerns continue. 

Sensitive skin types should avoid products with synthetic fragrances and in most cases stick with natural, fragrance free products and fabrics made of natural fibres. 

 

Health (Sleep, Stress, and Diet)

 

Skin concerns: Breakouts, dryness, dehydration, and undereye circles 

Are you stressed or sleep deprived? Both can lead to skin that is acting up - and so can your diet. 

Let’s start with stress. Your body produces an increased amount of the hormone cortisol when you’re under pressure. 

A spike in cortisol in turn leads to the skin creating more sebum which can trigger breakouts. Stress can also cause existing skin issues like eczema and psoriasis to flare up. 

Discover some simple ways to relax and recharge. 

Another side effect of increased cortisol is restless sleep. Not getting enough quality rest leads to more skin concerns, including under eye circles, dehydration, and dry skin conditions. 

Hydration is key for healthy skin function and your body’s hydration levels are impacted by the amount of sleep you get. 

When your skin is dehydrated, wrinkles and fine lines become more pronounced and the chances of triggering eczema and psoriasis or skin discolouration increase. 

Read more about how sleep affects the health of your skin.

Then there’s your diet. If your skin has suddenly begun to act up it may be due to eating more of a certain kind of food. 

We all react differently to foods so what triggers skin concerns for a friend may not trigger them for you, however, some of the usual suspects include:

Refined sugars

Dairy

High fat, fried foods

These types of foods are especially common in triggering acne breakouts.  Not drinking enough water and drinking too much alcohol will also cause skin dehydration.

Skincare solutions

No matter how good your skincare routine is, it can only do so much to address the skin concerns caused by poor sleep, diet, and stress. 

Take a close look at each of these lifestyle areas and experiment by making changes for better sleep, lower stress levels, and eating right for your skin. 

 

Using The Wrong Skincare

 

Skin concerns: Irritation, breakouts, dryness, and sensitivity

Your skin will send a message loud and clear if the skincare products you’re using aren’t compatible.

Breakouts, irritation, dryness and sensitivity can all be signs you're using the wrong products for your skin type. 

For example, a frequent skincare mistake made by oily, breakout-prone skin types is using a cleanser that is too harsh for the skin. 

Using a harsh cleanser (many cleansers aimed at teenage acne are extremely strong) risks stripping your face of its natural oils and disrupts the skin’s pH balance.

This triggers the skin to create even more oil which results in more breakouts. 

Or, if your skin is reacting to a particular ingredient - either natural or synthetic - you might experience redness and irritation. Even if you’re using great quality products, you can still experience an adverse reaction. 

Skincare solutions

The first step is knowing your skin type so you can choose the right products. Our guide to the different skin types and suggested routines will help you out.

If you’re still experiencing skin complaints, it may be a reaction to a certain ingredient. 

A few ingredients that commonly trigger rashes, irritation and breakouts include -

Fragrance

Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). This is a chemical known to cause rashes, blemishes, and eye irritation. 

Salicylic acid can be extremely strong on skin. Stick with gentler acids like lactic and glycolic which are less likely to cause irritation.

Emollients. While these can be very beneficial, they can cause breakouts for some skin types.

Remember - always do a patch test on your wrist or the area of skin behind your ear before trying a new product.

 

Medications 

 

Skin concerns: Irritation, dryness, scaly skin, and sensitivity

Known as “drug hypersensitivity” signs your body is having an overly sensitive response to medication can include breaking out in hives, dryness, itchy rashes, and swelling, and general sensitivity. 

Skincare solutions

Always seek medical advice and if possible, stop taking the medication. Symptoms may persist for a few days or weeks after stopping the medication but most people will recover without permanent damage to skin. 

During the recovery period, treat your skin with extra care. Switch to gentler products and stick to a more minimalist routine so you don’t overwhelm your skin while it heals.

11 sneaky things that are bad for skin and trigger breakouts, dryness, and irritation on a daily basis. 

 

Your Makeup Brushes

 

Makeup brushes can help you work all kinds of beauty magic but dirty ones are so bad for skin

If your breakouts are persisting, how often are you cleaning your brushes? They naturally accumulate dirt and bacteria that you unknowingly spread onto your skin with every use. 

Brushes also accumulate dead skin cells and oil, leading to congested and broken out skin. 

The bristles of a brush caked in old, hard makeup won’t be soft and can cause irritation when you swipe it across your face.

 

The Wrong Skincare Products

 

Bad skin care products, overuse, or just using the wrong products for your skin type will hurt, not help, your complexion.

Signs the products you’re using are damaging your skin include dryness, breakouts, redness, inflammation, and excessive oil. 

Read more about the signs of a damaging skincare routine.

 

Synthetic Fabrics...And Even Some Natural Ones

 

Dealing with acne breakouts on your neck, chest, or back area? 

Wearing tight clothes made from synthetic fibres like acrylic, polyester, rayon, acetate, and nylon can be bad for skin

When fabric rubs against acne-aggravated skin the area can become even more inflamed. 

Some synthetic fabrics don’t allow the skin to breathe properly, trapping in sweat and oil. This can spread acne bacteria and cause more pore blockages.

It might be a natural fibre but wool (not the super soft merino type) can damage skin too - exacerbating dry, itchy skin problems and triggering eczema.

 

Laundry Detergent

 

Sensitive skin types can be super reactive to different fragrances and chemicals used in laundry detergents. 

Flare ups of dry, itchy, and red patches of skin known as contact dermatitis are commonly linked back to skin being exposed to solvents and soap chemicals.

The safest bet for sensitive skin is to stick with natural or gentle formulations with no fragrance. 

 

Hot Showers

 

Nothing beats a hot shower on a cold winter morning, right? 

As great as it feels to turn up the temperature and soak in the steam, hot water is really bad for skin. Especially if you are already dealing with any skin concerns characterised by dry, flaky, red patches, like dermatitis.

Too long under a hot stream of water can damage your skin barrier as it strips away the protective lipid layer of your skin. 

This protective layer is responsible for sealing moisture in while keeping bacteria and irritants out. A damaged skin barrier can’t hold onto moisture and as a result, skin becomes itchy, red, and dry.

 

Hair Products

 

Are hair care products to blame for your skin woes? Certain ingredients commonly found in hair care formulations are bad for skin, causing breakouts, dryness, and irritation.

These 2 are the worst offenders on our bad things for your skin list -

Propylene glycol - A known irritant you’ll find in many shampoos and conditioners that can cause dryness and sensitivity.

Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS) - An ingredient to avoid in all beauty products. It gives shampoo the ability to ‘foam’ up but it’s cleansing properties are harsh. It strips skin of natural oils and can spark an allergic reaction in sensitive skin types. 

If you’re prone to acne, it’s also best to avoid using gels, pomades, heavy creams, or any products that add oil to your hair. These can seep into the skin around your hairline causing blocked pores and breakouts. 

Oily hair can contribute to the oil on your face too so make sure you’re washing your hair frequently with a gentle shampoo and conditioner.

 

Sleeping Position

 

Is the way you sleep speeding up signs of ageing? 

Opinions are divided on exactly how bad for skin certain positions are but sleep-related wrinkles are something to be wary of.

If you snooze on your stomach, forehead lines can become more prominent. Sleeping on your side may create creases down your cheeks and chin. 

Minimise the chance of accelerating wrinkles by sleeping on your back - you’ll also allow fluid to drain properly and reduce the chance of puffy eyes in the morning.

 

Pillowcases And Towels

 

Another sleep related habit bad for skin is not changing your pillowcase regularly.

Pillows are a sneaky source of bacteria and pore-clogging debris that your skin comes in contact with every night. Sweat and dead skin cells that are shed while you sleep continue to add to the grimy build-up. 

Avoid exposing your face to this cocktail of skin disruptors by regularly changing your pillowcases - at least twice a week. 

Bath and face towels also harbour scary amounts of bacteria if not washed regularly. Change your bath towels every 3 uses to prevent bacterial overgrowth and your face towels on a daily basis. 

Try esmi Microfibre Face Cleansing Mitt. 

Perfect for all skin types, it doesn’t harbour bacteria, and removes 80% more dirt, makeup, and product residue than a regular face washer. 

 

Makeup Wipes

 

Quick and convenient? Yes. Good for your skin? Not so much.

Makeup wipes are loaded with preservatives for the purpose of stopping mould and these ingredients can cause skin to become inflamed and dry. 

The idea to ‘cleanse’ without water means the cleansing agents in makeup wipes stay on your face instead of being rinsed off. Also highly irritating for skin!

We recommend sensitive skin types skip makeup wipes altogether. Other skin types may be able to get away with occasional use in a cleansing emergency but definitely not on a daily basis.

 

Skipping Sunscreen

 

Not applying SPF on a daily basis (all year round - no matter the weather) is a habit bad for skin.

Actually, it’s terrible for skin.

It’s estimated that 90% of skin ageing is due to the effects of the sun. The appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sunspots happen faster when you skip your daily dose of SPF. Worse, you increase the chance of developing sun related cancer, including melanoma. 

To protect skin against both UVA and UVB rays, choose broad-spectrum sunscreen. 

Aim for SPF 30 or above and reapply throughout the day - every 2 hours or more frequently when swimming, exercising, or wiping your face.

Try esmi Skin Shield Natural Sunscreen SPF30

Broad-spectrum, non-greasy SPF30 coverage for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. Formulated with additional anti-ageing benefits of carrot root oil, hyaluronic acid, and green tea for hydrated, smoother skin.

 

Milk

 

Foods bad for acne and other skin complaints vary from person to person but some dairy products, in particular milk, are common triggers.

Studies have found a link between milk products and acne but to discover the impact dairy has on you, temporarily cut it from your diet and monitor your skin for changes. 

Before making any radical changes to your diet, we recommend consulting with a health professional. 

If you are dealing with severe acne, a change in diet may help but it’s not the entire picture. Take a holistic approach to include the right skincare, alternative therapies, or medication as needed.

Red, sore, angry, dry, flaky…! “Please help calm my skin” you say?

 

For anyone who has a reactive skin, whether it be genetic, environmental or from over use of harsh ingredients, you will know how hard and frustrating it can be to find products to soothe and repair your skin.

I’m going to introduce you to some versatile yet super active ingredients that are effective for a wide range of conditions from acne through to eczema skins.

 

Super active ingredients to the rescue!

 

Niacinamide Vitamin B3.

Acne prone skin – Vitamin B 3 skincare helps to slow down and regulate oil flow. Great news if your skin is oily and prone to breakouts, especially if you suffer from acne. Regulating oil mean less oil flow which mean less breakouts and more easily manageable skin. More manageable skin means you can skip those harsh ingredients that can end up stripping the skin of its all-important oil and ends up leading to aggravated and breakout prone skin. Niacinamide, as found in esmi Skin Minerals’ Green Smoothie Skin Treat, will help to repair and restore a problematic skin, and is also beneficial for treating post breakout redness.

Sensitive skin – Vitamin B for skin will help to calm and ease inflammation by improving barrier function. If you suffer from rosacea, eczema or any other skin concerns that cause a weakened skin surface, Vit B 3 will help protect against environmental factors that can cause those unwanted flare ups. esmi’s Anti Inflammatory Mint Gel Booster Mask is suitable for even the most sensitive skins.

 

Hyaluronic Acid.

Don’t let the word acid scare you! Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring ingredient in our skin (which makes it so much easier for your skin to recognise and absorb – making it so effective). Hyaluronic acid is like a big drink of water for your skin! Any impaired skin barrier that is suffering from dry, flaky, reactive or over stripped skin will benefit from adding this active ingredient into your regime. This makes it an excellent skincare product for conditions like eczema and dermatitis, through to a combination skin. This ingredient can actually hold 1,000 times its weight in water(!!) so this means the cells will attract water and hold onto it, leaving suffering skin dewy and plump. For your Hyaluronic Acid hit check out esmi’s Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum.

 

Linoleic Acid.

Commonly found in oils such as rose hip, evening primrose and wheatgerm, this ingredient is amazing for treating an impaired barrier. Linoleic acid will allow the skin barrier to become stronger which in turn will lock in hydration and moisture. Studies have shown that this ingredient is also a very beneficial skin care product for acne – it can actually stop a forming pimple from becoming a full-blown breakout, it will reduce the pimple size and clear it before you even knew it was there! These oils are super lightweight and are suitable as moisturisers for dry to oily skin types and can be found in esmi’s 24k Gold Nourishing Oil.

 

Allantoin.

This non-irritating ingredient soothes and protects, it really is an all-star ingredient for keeping sensitised skin in tip top condition. It has the amazing ability to heal the skin and stimulate the growth of new tissue. It is amazing for eczema treatment, even dermatitis sufferers and fantastic to help with healing acne scarring. Allantoin can be found in esmi’s Hyaluronic Hydrating Booster Mask.

 

The Sensitive Skin First Aid Kit

 

Tips for over sensitised skin –

Avoid harsh ingredients.

It’s always important to remember to use gentle products on skin that is suffering from a reaction or has been stripped of oil and avoid anything that will exasperate it further. The best place to start is with a gentle cleanser. ‘Suitable for all skin types’ is usually a good indicator that the product will be on the gentle side but do your research. Does it contain any SLS’s? These are renowned for being harsh on the skin and drying it out. If your cleanser is leaving your skin squeaky clean there is a good chance its stripping the oil from your skin. Try our Uncomplicated Cleanser which is super gentle on the skin.


Use a mild exfoliant.

Mild exfoliation is key. Using products with an enzyme is beneficial for exfoliating sensitised skin… all skins really! Rather than scrubbing with something that could potentially damage the skin barrier, an enzyme exfoliant uses AHAs which can be derived from sugar cane, fruits or vegetables. AHA’s gently dissolve the bonds that hold dead skin cells together, allowing dead skin to slough off easily. This leaves skin super soft and smooth, pores clean and allows for better penetration of serums and moisturisers. For a great mild exfoliant try esmi’s Detoxifying Exfoliating Charcoal Serum.


Go for a simple gentle regime.

Be kind to your skin! We can sometimes freak out when our skin breaks out or becomes dry and this stress can actually lead it to becoming worse. Remember; our skin is the largest organ in our body and our face is the most exposed, so it can get a bit of a rough time, so over loading it with tonnes of products to help ‘fix’ your skin is onlygoing to have the opposite effect. Treat it with care!

How to reduce skin redness

READ MORE

Red skin, reactive skin and rosacea are frustrating and often embarrassing skin conditions that can be difficult to deal with. For some of these conditions the redness will never fully go away or disappear, so it’s important to equip yourself with knowledge of your skin condition and a simple skin regime to best manage it.

Redness is most commonly found on the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. It can be associated with flushed skin (blushing easily and for extended amount of time) and broken capillaries (spider web looking veins usually across the nose and cheeks). The more flare ups you have the redder these areas will become, which is why management is so important. You may also experience papules and pustles known as acne rosacea. It’s very important not to treat rosacea with ‘acne clearing ‘ products as it can worsen your condition. Flakey dry and scaly skin can also be a common symptom.

 

WHAT NOT TO USE

It’s important to choose gentle skincare products as part of a good, regular skincare regime to help reduce redness. This can really make a world of difference, especially during a flare up.

 

Try to avoid the following:

• Cleansers that leave your skin with that ‘squeaky-clean’ feeling
• Rough and scratchy exfoliants
• Highly perfumed products
• Foundations that don’t allow the skin to breath
• Alcohol in skincare. Ie. witch hazel, toners.

 

Try to avoid the following:


 

COMMON TRIGGERS

While it’s hard to avoid stress, it can be a major contributor to our skin acting up, especially if you already have underlying skin care issue like rosacea and redness.

Common triggers can also include food (try to avoid anything with spice) and all those naughty activities like drinking (especially wine!), smoking and sun exposure. Make sure you avoid the midday sun and always wear your hat and 50+ SPF!

 

Triggers include:

• Stress
• Extreme Temperatures
• Spicy food
• Fragrances and alcohol in skincare
• Alcoholic drinks – especially wine
• Smoking

 


 

WHAT YOU WANT IN SKINCARE

Look for anti-oxidant rich ingredients that will help to strengthen the skin and calming formulations. Rosacea is a form of inflammation in the skin, so choosing product packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients will be key in helping to control redness.

 

Look for:

• Anti-oxidant rich ingredients
• Calming products
• Gentle formulations
• Anti-Inflammatory products

 


 

KEY INGREDIENTS TO LOOK FOR:

Niacinamide – Repairs and restores skin and helps to fight inflammation.
Squalane – Prevents moisture loss and boost cell regeneration.
Allantoin – Soothes and protects the skin. Has the ability to help heal the skin and stimulate the growth of new tissue.
Hyaluronic Acid – Super hydrating, will attract water to skin cell and allow the skin to hold onto it.
Caffeine – Constricting effect, which can help improve the look of redness, soothing and antioxidant properties.
Arnica – Can calm the redness and inflammation associated with rosacea. Increases white blood cell activity to help combat irritation.

Have a look at the makeup you’re wearing and choose a mineral formulation which is not only good for your skin but will also allow it to breath. This will come with zinc, which not only has a sun protection factor, but is anti- fungal and will help with the healing process.
