Skin Detox? Really? Really!
With all of the detox programs out there―juice, digital, relationship―we often overlook our body’s largest organ, our skin. With Clarins’ gentle daily cleansers and Spa Facials, you can detox your skin and achieve a spa-fresh glow, starting from day one.
The way our skin looks is a direct reflection of what is happening externally and internally. It would be nice if we lived in a stress-free world, eating only pure, organic foods―but come on, life is hectic! If you’re reading this, you’re probably trying to maintain a healthy balance as best you can―however, the food we eat, the air we breathe, overload our systems with impurities that reflect negatively on our skin. The old adage, “we are what we eat” is more true today than ever. It’s a fact: what we eat and how we feel show up on our skin.
So ask yourself. Does your skin glow with youthful vitality and the look of health—or is it dull, flaky, oily or dry? If you answered the latter, it’s time to turn things around by starting a Daily Detox routine with Clarins’ refreshing botanical cleansers, and exclusive Lymphatic Drainage Massage Method. (If you’re going to cleanse your skin, might as well do it right.)
But first things first. To understand Lymphatic Drainage Massage―which may sound like something a plumber would major in―it’s important to understand your body’s lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is the part of your circulatory system that rids your body of toxins and waste. If your system becomes overloaded and polluted with toxins, your body can’t efficiently filter impurities, and skin rebels in the form of a dull, sallow, tired-looking complexion―often accompanied by fine lines, wrinkles, acne, blackheads, enlarged pores and/or the dreaded oil slick. When lymphatic circulation slows down, so does cellular turnover, which accelerates aging! Need we say more?
Clarins teaches our customers to treat their skin with respect. That means NEVER pulling or stretching, which triggers the breakdown of skin fibers. To preserve the skin’s integrity, all Clarins formulas are warmed between the hands and gently pressed onto the skin―working from the middle of the face outward. This application method creates a light suction that releases and removes daily toxic buildup. (It also feels great!)
Every customized Spa Facial employs Clarins’ exclusive Lymphatic Drainage Method, and the gentle healing power of the therapists’ touch, to flush-away any stagnant fluids and toxins that may have collected beneath the skin’s surface—a leading cause of facial and eye puffiness, and dark under eye circles.
Improving lymphatic circulation is at the core of every Clarins Application Method—at home, and in Clarins Skin Spas—and is the secret to our stay-young strategy.
