★ Clean up your act: 13 practical steps to detoxifying your environment

1. Smell Sense: Select a personal fragrance made from natural essential oils, and avoid fragranced household products. Some synthetic designer fragrances, while appealing, have been found by the EPA to contain small amounts of harmful substances.

2. Air Out: Have adequate fresh air circulating in your home and office.

3. Dust Bust: Vacuum away hose dust with a filtered vacuum cleaner. Buy an air purifier, too, if your budget allows.

4. Green Clean: Get rid of harsh, smelly chemical cleansers and select naturally based, biodegradable ones.

5. Water Works: Drink only filtered water, never tap water (this contains toxins) and avoid water bottles that have been exposed to heat.

6. Skin Care: Never, ever use a facial or body product that uses irritating synthetic fragrance, pesticide-tinged lanolin, comedogenic artificial colors or drying S.D. Alcohol. Products that are packaged in a jar or tub should be avoided, as these are prone to contamination.

7. De- Tox: Each day help flush out toxins with Detoxify Elixir drink and use Dermalogica’s Toxin Relief Treatment Oil in your bath.

8. Nutrient Nature: Try to stick to organic foods whenever possible, and avoid highly processed or artificially flavored and colored items.

9. Deodorant Dilemma: With new studies hinting that antiperspirants can present a health risk, use an organic deodorant, or a plain deodorant at the least.

10. Hair Snare: Like it or not, your shampoo, conditioner and styling aids all wind up on your face and body. Be as picky with your hair products as you are about skin care.

11. Stress Less: Simple relaxation may be the answer for many an aggravated skin! Reward yourself at the end of a hard day with Dermalogica’s Hydro Active Mineral Salts and Stress Relief Treatment Oil for a relaxing bath soak.

12. Solar Defense: Protecting against damaging UV rays with a minimum SPF15. Skin-care-quality Dermalogica Solar Defense is a must, especially for all people with environmentally aggravated skin.

13. Environmental Control: Protect and repair sensitized skin with Dermalogica’s Environmental Control system.
