8 things to know before starting this challenge

  1. This skin detox is based on the advice of nutritionists, dermatologists, facialists and product developers. However, every skin type is different so always do what's best for you.
  2. For the best results, eat a well-balanced diet of fresh fruit, vegetables, legumes and lean protein.
  3. We will be sharing one recipe per day full of skin-loving ingredients to help you along.
  4. Cut out coffee and alcohol (sorry!). Green tea should be your fix when you need it, but try limiting it to at three cups per day.
  5. Aim for the recommended three litres of water per day. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
  6. We know you're a busy bunch, so stick to a quick cleanse, moisturise and SPF in the morning and we'll provide you with a nigh time routine for every evening.
  7. We'll be offering product suggestions throughout the challenge, but of course the detox can be followed using similar products you may already have.
  8. Take photos of your skin! Skin changes can be really subtle and if you wear makeup everyday you might not notice the improvement. Set an alarm on your phone every morning to take a quick selfie so you can compare your skin from the start and finish of this detox. Remember to use the hashtag #GlamourSkinDetox if you post on your social media.
