Must-Try Detox Facial

Paprika and Blueberry

Would you deliberately use a peel that causes your face to get really hot and red? It sounds crazy, but the Blueberry Detox Peel from Eminence Organics does just that and the result is skin that is fresh, glowing and younger looking!

 

HOT AND SPICY

This month we are focused on cleansing our insides with green smoothies, but now let’s take a look at how we can detox the outside as well. The Blueberry Detox Firming Peel is a natural exfoliating peel and, like many peels, it deep cleans pores and tones the skin. The highlight of this peel is the paprika, which is a naturally hot spice that definitely heats up your skin! Don’t worry; this is exactly the reaction that you want! Like exercising, the heat from paprika increases circulation to the skin, bringing fresh blood to the skin’s surface to give your skin that radiant glow. Increased blood flow also increases oxygen intake of the skin cells, which means that products applied after the peel will be absorbed better.

 

DO YOU DARE?

So, would you or wouldn’t you try this facial? We think that the temporary heat and redness is worth it and if you dare try it, this Detox Facial may just become your new fresh-faced beauty obsession!
