Start with a 2-week detox challenge
Get ready to refresh and enhance your natural beauty as we embark on a 2-week detox challenge! Start slow and for the next 2 weeks make a commitment to using high-quality, effective skincare free from added fragrance, silicones and parabens. Revamp your routine and embrace a more sustainable and mindful lifestyle. Follow these 6 steps below to get started on your clean-skin journey.
1. Cleanse with Cerabalm
A staple in the detox challenge, Cerabalm is the cleansing balm that cleans, nourishes and moisturizes. Its unique honey-like texture (minus the stickiness) is a treat for inflamed, irritated and dry skin. The key ingredients that make up this pot of honey include sea buckthorn oil, meadowfoam seed oil, apricot kernel oil, spirulina and more. Each ingredient is sustainably sourced and of the highest quality to ensure the skin is smooth, regulated and revitalized after application.
How to use: It is meant to be applied to dry skin, with dry hands and gently massaged into the skin. As you massage, watch makeup, SPF and impurities melt away. After massaging, emulsify with a bit of water to remove the excess.
2. Tone with D22 Tonic
An essential step in your detoxing routine! This clean beauty exfoliating face toner works on every skin type and almost every skin concern. The combination of lactic and glycolic acids along with birch water and grape flower extract work to gently exfoliate, tighten and unclog pores without causing any irritation to the skin.
