Your skin and hair need to detox— Here are 11 ways to clean up your act

The detox: First Aid Beauty Detox Eye Roller, $24

What's at work: The metal rollerball applicator's massage effect boosts lymphatic drainage; it also deposits tightening caffeine and toning witch hazel to minimize puff and bags.

The detox: Kate Somerville Detox Daily Cleanser, $32

What's at work: A quartet of resurfacing acids—phytic, salicylic, glycolic, lactic—plus pore-purging tea tree and tangerine peel extracts.

The detox: Bliss Daily Detoxifying Facial Toner, $26

What's at work: Malachite extract, a copper compound with antimicrobial and antioxidant properties to purify and counteract environmental buildup.

The detox: Malin+Goetz Detox Face Mask, $40

What's at work: An oil and dirt-dissolving gel that morphs into a foam, infusing pores with brightening vitamin C.

The detox: Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil, $52

What's at work: Antiseptic (and calming) lavender oil, plus rosemary oil, which, counterintuitively, has oil-regulating properties.

The detox: Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm, $36

What's at work: Green tea and aloe vera to quell inflammation, and arbutin to brighten dark spots.

The detox: Tone Daily Detox Body Wash, $6

What's at work: Kaolin clay soaks up dirt and oil, fighting blemishes and bumps.

The detox: Amala Beauty Detoxify Detoxifying Body Polish, $26

What's at work: An impurity-removing combo of sea salt, myrtle and lemon peel oil.

The detox: Elemental Herbology Detox Botanical Bathing Infusion, $35

Think of these purifying, clarifying products as a beauty cleanse. You'll look fresher and brighter from head to toe before temps start rising and it's time to go bare.
