How to: Glow Up Your Skin for Less Than One Pound.
Forget micellar water and expensive toners, Sparkling Water is one of the most detoxifying and skin brightening toners you can use. Better still, it is suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin, and costs less than £1.
Trendsetters in the J and K-beauty world have long been using fizzy water in their skincare routines. The effervescent water works its way deep into your pores to gently lift and remove bacteria and dirt. Your complexion will instantly feel tighter and GLOW!
Now let’s get down to the science part… Sparkling water has a pH level of 5.5, which is actually the same pH as our skin. Some toners, and normal tap water, have a higher pH of 7 that can lead to irritation and dehydration of the skin’s outermost layer.
Acclaimed London Facialist and Quantum Botanika’s founder, Nataliya Robinson shares her favourite detoxifying skin treatment that you can do at home with sparkling water.
Nataliya’s 2-Minute Sparkling Water Detox Facial
Our skin is exposed to so much unavoidable daily pollution – it’s in the air, water and products we use. Doing a weekly skin detox with sparkling water can help restore the health of our skin. Here’s a quick detox treatment you can do at home –
Step One: Pour 500ml or 1 litre of sparkling water into a bowl. Any carbonated water will do, even if it’s just regular soda water. The magic is in the bubbles!
Step Two: Immerse your face into the water for 10-20 seconds. This is also a great stress reliever, an instant pick me up!
Step Three: Repeat 2-3 times per week for optimal results. If you’re prone to problematic skin, acne or excessively oily skin, you may want to do this treatment daily.
Step Four: Gently pat complexion dry and finish with My Balancing Face Cream. Enriched with calming aloe vera and energizing antioxidants, this daily moisturiser helps to heal the skin and provides protection against damaging pollutants.
We all know that skin hydration is crucial during the colder months, but it also very important during summer. The bright summer sun and the fact that we lose fluids faster during the warm weather, can you leave you with dry and dull skin.
