Skincare Tip: Detox Your Skin, Mind & Body | Clozette

Lately, with the level of pollution plaguing our skin daily, a good skin detox via a clean, healthy lifestyle regimen has become quite a necessity if we want that happy, healthy glow. After all, once a pollution or dirt particle has penetrated deep into the skin, it can lead to problems similar to UV damage—darkening, wrinkles, rough texture. Couple that with the stresses from every day life and you're left with stressed, tired, and damaged skin.

So to keep our skin and body bright and healthy despite the stresses of pollution and every day life, we've been sticking to a detox regimen that has given us great results. Here is our 3-step tried-and-tested detox routine that you may want to give a try!


Detox Your Skin

When it comes to giving your skin a good detox and getting rid of deep-seeded dirt, one of our favourite ways is to use a cleansing brush. We're currently loving Clinique's Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush for its soft yet firm bristles that are slightly tapered for a truly deep clean. It also provides gentle exfoliation which primes the face to better absorb skincare products post-wash.

This system is best used with Clinique's Foaming Sonic Soap--an oil-free, non-acnegenic cleanser that cushions your face against the cleansing brush, gently-yet-effortlessly removing all makeup residue, dirt, and bacteria. Best thing about it: its gentle formula of glycerin, sucrose, and caffeine--a combination that's great for preventing and soothing breakouts.

Detox Your Mind

Daily life can be stressful--from balancing work or school with social and family obligations, it can get quite overwhelming at times. So the best way we've found to put our mind at ease is through a good Yoga session. It isn't just about challenging your body with the intricate Yoga poses, but it's more about learning to keep both body and mind centred and in-sync.

Detox Your Body

Ever noticed that whenever your diet goes out of whack, so does your skin and body? Suddenly you find your skin breaking out and your body feeling sluggish and tried. The best remedy for this: clean eating and a regular exercise routine. A balanced mix of both allows your body to energize itself while detoxifying from within. Opt for a diet of fresh, unprocessed food for maximum benefits.

With the hot, humid, tropical weather in our region, it is only understandable that many would seek refuge in air-conditioned rooms to escape the heat and the damaging rays of the sun. But did you know that staying indoors in an air-conditioned room for prolonged periods of time has been known to strip your skin of much needed moisture?

The cooling air from your air-conditioner actually strips moisture and the natural oils from your skin, making it dry, itchy, and sometimes even flaky. This is why you may find that despite the humid days of summer, you still experience dry skin. So what's the best way to remedy this problem? Simple. Find a way to keep your skin moisturised all day.

We recently attended the launch of Olay's new body wash, the Olay Body Wash Moisture Outlast Collection, over the weekend and we must say that even after a couple of washes, we have already noticed that our skin feels less dry and taut throughout the day.

Unlike beauty bars and other body washes, Olay's moisturisers rapidly penetrate the skin's layers rather than sitting just on the surface of the skin--effectively moisturising without leaving the skin feeling coated and greasy. This is why it's currently making it to the top of our must-have products for the summer!

The new Olay Body Wash Moisture Outlast Collection comes in six variants: Deep Moisture With Honey, Clean Moisture with Coconut Milk, Whitening Moisture with Pearl Extract, Sensitive with Chamomile, Refreshing Cucumber and Green Tea, and Cooling White Strawberry & Mint. 

The Olay Body Wash Moisture Outlast Collection is now available in the Philippines at PHP110 for the 200ml or PHP199 for the 400ML.

Collagen makes up 30 percent of total protein in the human body. It supports healthy skin, hair and nails, protects the joints and mucus membranes, as well as ensures strong, healthy bones. On top of that, collagen is also needed for supple, elastic skin, as well as the renewal of skin cells.

However, since the amount of collagen in the body decreases drastically after the age of 25, constant replenishment of collagen has become important for all-round health and wellness. So we were all enthused when LANEIGE came out with a Collagen Drink that's been formulated for quick absorption to give brighter and more well-hydrated skin.

A few of our Clozette Ambassadors were able to give this a try over a 2-month period and here's what they had to say about their experience!


Celine Chiam

"I do feel that my skin's luminosity has increased quite substantially. Of course I can't decide this is a result solely from the collagen drinks that I've been consuming so far, but I am pretty sure the diligent consumption habit does make a difference to my skin. I went for a skin diagnosis with my facial clinic about a week ago and my skin's hydration and elasticity has improved a lot, and don't forget providing suppleness to the skin is one key attribute from collagen drinks. Previously, I have a lot of blemish marks on my skin, especially the forehead and I can tell they heal up very fast this time round."

Ena Teo

"With the intake of LANEIGE Collage drink for a month, my skin is visibly more hydrated than before, especially when I wake up after a night’s sleep. Usually my skin will be dehydrated even when I put my usual moisturiser, so I will usually prep my skin with facial mask or sleeping mask the night before. Now with the intake of LANEIGE Collagen Drink at night, my facial skin has become hydrated from within. Also, I was worried that I might gain weight because the LANEIGE Collagen Drink tastes like a dessert, thankfully I didn’t experience any weight gain and that’s because it has the lowest calories at only 105KJ."

Kymm Liang

"Prior to drinking collagen, I would describe my skin as combination-oily (oily in the t-zone), and acne prone. It was slightly lackluster. 5 and a half weeks later, I find my skin to be slightly more taut, and a little more radiant. Almost looks like a glow from within! My favourite way to consume this is to mix it with a glass of juice (vegetable or fruit) to dilute it as it can be a little concentrated. If you’re a salad person, try using this as a salad dressing (way healthier than thousand island)!"

Roanna Tan

"Surprisingly after 1.5 months of diligent consumption, I do see actual improvements to my skin, namely improved radiance and skin elasticity as my skin felt firmer and brighter! Keeping my skincare routine constant so as not to affect the results, I felt that my skin visibly became more glowy (not oily) which made me look healthier. I say my skin became more radiant because I can really notice that it doesn't look as dull and tired as before, especially with no makeup on!"

Sydney Ho

"The taste is amazing! It tasted like grape yakult flavour to me. It provided me with the radiance and glow I needed for my tired skin! It did not plum me up horizontally but yet gave me a slightly more 3D look to my face! I am not exaggerating because I did feel like the plumpness went to the right places this time. LANEIGE focuses on quality and I believe it is because their products have worked wonders for me even with their small sized bottles and quantity. "
