Every year, with the added stress of the holiday season—endless events, lack of sleep, excessive makeup, and decadent diet—my skin takes a toll around November and December. Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get my face back to normal. With the help of the Target Beauty Concierge, I’ve found a new routine taking it back to basics, and I’m calling it a skin-care detox.

Here are four simple ways to start a skin-care detox of your own:

1. Drink more water

This one may seem obvious, but let this be a reminder that we are what we consume. Ample water intake is vital to luminous skin and overall great health. Plus, my aesthetician can always tell when my water intake increases or decreases over time, so the results are obvious.

2. Double cleanse

If your pores are habitually congested, there’s a chance you aren’t cleansing your skin thoroughly enough at night. After removing my makeup with a cleansing water or makeup wipe, I use a foaming gel cleanser once to remove the residue, and then a second time to get a deep clean. This leaves behind zero trace of makeup and dirt.

3. Add a toner

If you’re not already using a toner, a detox is a perfect time to start! My new favorite toner packs a punch and makes a huge difference in the brightness and evenness of my complexion. If you struggle with dullness, I recommend reaching for something containing glycolic acid and, of course, natural ingredients.

4. Make a mask or treatment rotation

I’m a firm believer in having multiple treatments at home to choose from, rather than just arbitrarily using the same product once every seven days. Especially if you have combination skin, I recommend having a detoxifying mask and exfoliating mask to rotate in as needed. Not a mask fan? Consider under-eye patches or nose strips instead. Besides, you deserve a mini pamper session more than once a week!

  • I really need to start using a toner. I never think about that! Great tips!

  • Good tips. I use the Say Yes to Blueberries skin wipes at the end of the day and they really do make my skin gorgeous. I need to try out the tomato kind that you recommended. Cheers!

  • How is that Yes To mask? I’ve had my eye on it but haven’t tried it yet. That Pixi toner is my jam though!

    I’ve been trying to drink more water! My goal has been to do 3 liters a day, but it’s so hard!

  • Great tips! I’m probably guilty of not getting getting a thorough clean. I’ll try taking the time for a double cleanse and see if it helps 😀

  • I have been taking better care of skin especially since it’s been cold out so my skin has been really dry.
    I have also been drinking more water!

    How do you like that micellar water? I’ve seen it a bunch in Europe and Canada and it seems like it’s just not hitting the US market
