We all go through stages where our skin acts up. Whether it’s due to diet, stress, hygiene (or even a mixture of all the above), we have a few tricks up our sleeve that will make your skin instantly feel and look better. Here are some of our favorite ways to detox, here at Java For Beauty.

One of the easiest and most overlooked steps to take in skincare is staying hydrated. Water is essential for our skin! It detoxifies the skin, flushing out toxins and impurities from our diet. If you consume sodium-rich foods, drinking plenty of water will offset some of the negative effects it gives. Water aids in reducing a puffy appearance underneath the eye.

Not a fan of water? Infuse it with fruits, vegetables or herbs! This is a fun and natural way to make your water taste better while also adding some nutrients into it. Water soaks up all the vitamins and nutrients from the fruits and veggies infused in your cold drink. Here’s a ridiculously easy, favorite recipe of ours to try out!
Cucumber Detox Water
- 1 cucumber, sliced
- 1 lemon sliced
- Mint leaves
- 2 liters of water
Combine all these ingredients together into a pitcher or mason jar and let it sit overnight to soak up all the nutrients to its highest potential!

Washing your face is so important, especially if you wear makeup! Throughout the day, dirt, sweat and oil builds up on yur skin which creates sebum and clogged pores which leads to acne prone skin. Make sure this is one of the first measures you take in detoxifying your skin. We carry hundreds of different cleansers on our site. Some of our favorites are Epionce’s Gentle Foaming Cleanser and GlamGlow POWERCLEANSE. These products are amazing at taking off makeup, eliminating impurities, and washing away dirt and grime that builds up on the skin. These products make skin feel renewed and baby soft.
