Being someone with the mental tolerance of a peach, we understand the need and importance of a detox day. Any slight inconvenience in our life and we go straight into detox mode, drinking all the green juices and pampering our skin with the best skin food. So here we got you our detox day routine that you can try out next time you feel mentally or physically exhausted. Trust us, you will end the day feeling like you just got back from the most relaxing spa session of your life. So if you are a skincare buff, like us, looking to relax, get into your PJs and join along because today is all about you.
This is something you should ideally do every day, but with my procrastination, I get through half the day before I remember to drink lemon water. But on detox days, make sure to drink a warm glass of water mixed with half a lemon. You can mix chia seeds in it if you wish for extra benefits. The lemon water not only helps with digestion but is also rich in Vitamin C, which boosts collagen and helps deal with breakouts. Although it doesn’t magically happen in a day, drinking it on your detox day will help you start your day on the right foot and makes you feel happy about doing something healthy *shortcut to feeling awesome*.
On your detox days, take some time to reflect on your week, your daily goals and what you want to achieve. For us, we always reflect back on our work, art, skincare and writing. We usually tend to overthink even a small zit, so always make sure to reassure yourself that it’s fine, breakouts happen and you can fix it! ‘I trust my skin’s healing process,’ ‘I glow from inside out’ are some of our favourite affirmations and you should truly let them sink in to get all the good vibes you need to take on life!
03. Masking and pampering
Now we come to the most important part of the detox — skincare! We love testing out new skincare products and mask up while sipping on some yum coconut water. So, we’re about to introduce you to our favourite detox mask — the Pond's Vitamin B6 + Bamboo Charcoal Sheet Mask, which, in our opinion, is the most perfect choice when you’re looking to detoxify the skin. Enriched with charcoal and bamboo, this mask literally gives an instant glow. Just cleanse your face with Pond’s Gold Beauty Gold Cleansing Face Wash and then put on the charcoal sheet mask. Then, gently go over the sheet mask with a refrigerated jade roller and relax for about 10 mins. Massage the excess serum onto your neck and hands.
04. Wrapping up
After you spent the day pampering your skin and doing all your favourite things, I suggest you end the day off reading your favourite book and sleeping early because that’s a luxury most of us don’t get or rather choose not to get! There’s nothing cooler than sleeping early and we vouch for it. So, anyway, this brings us to the end of your day and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we do!

As a skincare and makeup hoarder who watched The Devil Wears Prada a hundred times, this seems like the perfect place to be! A writer with a degree in fashion, I love everything beauty, fashion, art, and literature. When I’m not working, you will find me talking about energy cleansing, binge reading books and binge watching Kdramas while trying to select the right shade of lipstick to go grocery shopping!
