THE IN-TRAY

3 ways to rebalance your beauty health from hair to gut

With a new year comes resolutions, a clean slate to set your intentions for the year ahead. With the festive season behind us, we’re hanging up our heat tools, stripping back our makeup (it’s time to focus on skin) and rebalancing our beauty health from the inside out. Want to join us on a beauty detox? Here’s how…

1. Repair your hair

Had a few too many blow-outs over the holiday season? Yes, we’re referring to your hair. Heat tools can leave your hair dry, brittle and prone to breakage. Additionally, styling products such as hairspray and dry shampoo build up in your hair over time and leave your hair feeling dull and lifeless. The solution? A fresh start followed by some TLC. First you need to detox the hair and remove product build-up with a clarifying shampoo. Goop Beauty G.Tox Himalayan Salt Scrub Shampoo uses exfoliating and mineral-rich Himalayan pink salt, nourishing cold-pressed moringa oil, and pure unfiltered rosehip oil to purify and detox all at once for clean and silky strands. Use it once a week. For everyday, Living Proof Restore Shampoo and Conditioner effectively cleanses the hair while also restoring moisture and strengthening even the most ravaged strands.

Out of the shower, opt for a leave-in treatment. A few drops of Briogeo’s Don’t Despair! Repair Strengthening Treatment Hair Oil repairs the hair cuticle and bonds split ends caused by physica l or chemical damage, while ceramides and essential fatty acids help to replenish hair’s natural lipid content for a smooth, glossy finish. Oh, and a silk pillowcase never hurt! A real treat for your stressed tresses.

2. Reset your skin

It’s time to take your skin back to square one. A balm cleanser, such as Chantecaille’s Rose De Mai Cleansing Balm, removes dirt, makeup, sunscreen (and last year’s bad decisions) without a trace yet leaves skin soft, nourished and seriously smooth.

After a thorough cleanse it’s time to kiss dead skin cells goodbye and reveal glowing skin with an exfoliator. Goop Beauty’s GOOPGLOW Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator combines the best of a chemical and physical exfoliant to work like microdermabrasion in a jar. Think micro-exfoliating minerals (quartz, garnet, alumina, and silica) to polish skin and glycolic acid to help sweep away dry, dead skin cells and refine the appearance of pores. The result? Skin that’s positively glowing. Another new favourite, Moon Juice Acid Potion Resurfacing Exfoliator, uses a triple threat of salicylic, glycolic and lactic acids to effectively resurface skin with the addition of niacinamide and adaptogenic reishi to hydrate and bring the skin back to balance.

Always follow with an ultra-nourishing face cream, such as Goop Beauty GOOPGENES All-In-One Face Cream, for hydrated, firm and healthy looking skin.

3. Beauty starts from within

You know that feeling of how a green juice can fix everything? Well this is like that, but better. This year, beauty begins from within with ingestible probiotic-rich wholefood supplements that promote a healthy gut...and subsequent glowing skin as a result. Just sprinkle Beauty Chef’s Glow Inner Beauty Essential Supercharged Formula in water (or said smoothie) for a healthy dose of bio-fermented wholefoods, vitamin C (to boost collagen production), zinc (to support healthy hair skin and nails), provitamin A and broad-spectrum vitamin B to promote resilient, luminous skin. Incorporate these into your daily routine for best results. That simple!
