Prepare to radiate a halo of health and virtue, minus all the effort and deprivation that goes along with detoxing proper. Yes, you can have pores as pure as the soul of a Zen master on green tea, bone broth and paleo blogs. And yes, you can (still) eat gluten and do dairy.

Let us plug you into the zero-punish, detox deluxe; new-gen facial probiotics to fix fallout from the good life and bad behaviour. Express antioxidants and plant essences to brighten eyes and soothe abused skin until it says aaah. A charcoal mask that will purge toxins faster than a liquid diet of kale juice. No need to break a sweat or deny yourself of anything. You just do you. Your beauty cabinet’s got glowy rehab covered.

ENTER EYE REHAB

ENTER EYE REHAB

First, find a soothing eye cream that is lightweight (puffy eyes are already heavy with lymphatic fluid) yet stacked with healing antioxidants and light reflectors to disguise shadows. Then, apply it like a therapist: massage up and outward while tapping pressure points to release swelling, induce feel-good factor, and tighten the skin. Try: Pre:Empt Series™ Brightening Eye Cream.

THE CHARCOAL CURE

THE CHARCOAL CURE

Black is the new green for hardcore detoxers. Charcoal clings to pollutants, draws out gunk and exits the bad stuff from your overloaded system. So some girls drink charcoal-infused juice after a sweaty, 60-minute spin class to get the glow of an enthusiastic teen; you can wear a toxin-blitzing mask in the bath and relax. (We’d rather be you.) Try: Apot.Care Detox Black Mask.

WEAR A PROBIOTIC

Facial creams crammed with probiotics are the healthiest new habit since hipsters started putting kimchi on everything. Turns out, in the same way fermented food stabilises internal digestion, beauty probiotics set up the microflora of the skin to deflect environmental assault, maintain hydration and recover from rough treatment. Do your shot before bed. Try: Nude Skincare Advanced Renewal Overnight Mask.

SALUTE THE SUN-KISSED

Nothing fakes a restorative stint at Chiva Som like a faux glow. Do it with a bronze-tinted, everything-minimising face primer and prepare to bask in compliments. (The fact that you actually spent your holiday staycationing with Netflix stays between you and the remote.) Try: Mecca Cosmetica Sun-Kissed Bronzing Primer.

TAKE THE WATERS

For skin, moisture equals mojo; and there’s no more indulgent way to steep yourself than in the mineral springs of a European spa. If you can hop on a flight to thermal hotspot Budapest, do it. If not then seek redemption and rejuvenation in a jar – with the right science, the healing, anti-ageing minerals can be (almost) as good as the real thing. Try: Omorovicza Intensive Hydra-Lifting Cream.

MIX AN OIL FIX

Ultra-nourishing face oils are a dehydrated skin’s salvation. Highlighter is a tired face’s best friend. Find one of the new oil-based luminisers that mix long-term treatment payoffs with the instant gratification of illuminiser and it’s like being soul-hugged and high-fived at the same time. Try: Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminiser.

Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturise

PLUG IN ANTIOXIDANTS

Vitamin IV drips might be trending but there are many delightful, effective, and needle-free ways to absorb antioxidants. Consider a cloth mask soaked with healing plant extracts. A potent serum to deliver re-energising actives fast. We love a vitamin-rich cream that counteracts stress, sun and smoke. Hook yourself up. Try: Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser.
