Ever get home from a hectic day at work and feel like you need way more than a shower to wash away the stresses of the day?
For the ultimate detox of body and mind, we teamed up with Sephora to create superfood rituals for a next-level wind down that will help purify your pores and ward off breakouts (because those are just the worst).
Meet your detoxifying heroes: charcoal and a citrus and sugarcane superfruit blend. Charcoal does the dirty work of deep cleaning your pores topically, while internally cleansing your system of toxins. The citrus and sugarcane blend provides a natural AHA exfoliation, leaving you with a clearer, smoother complexion.
Change into your coziest PJs, throw your hair in a messy bun, and whip yourself up a soothing wellness bev. You’ll feel the worries of the day fading away in no time.
Scroll down for two self-care options for clearer, brighter-looking skin.
boscia Luminizing Black Mask + Charcoal Lemon Latte
For a mega dose of the purifying powers of charcoal, start with boscia Luminizing Black Mask (yes, this is the shiny black mask currently blowing up on Instagram). And it’s legit: Topically, charcoal pulls impurities out of skin, removing blackheads and excess oil to reduce the appearance of pores and reveal a brighter, more refined complexion.
Apply a smooth, opaque layer onto clean, dry skin, and after 30 minutes (and multiple selfies), gently peel away to unveil fresh, clarified skin.
Next, sip on a DIY charcoal lemon latte. The frothy cup is like a comforting hug with serious detox benefits. Food-grade activated charcoal binds to internal toxins (that can show up on the skin as breakouts) and flushes them out, which can also help cleanse your digestive system and alleviate bloat.
