Okay, let's be
honest: we may have succumbed to temptation (some more, some less) over
the holidays, and now we need a decisive action to repair potential
damage we did to our regimen for acne-free skin.
Day 1: Exfoliate
fresh ripe papaya (without seeds) either in a blender or by fork if
very ripe. Warm 2 tablespoons of honey for 5-10 seconds in the
microwave. Add to papaya. Mix well. Put on dry, clean skin (plus neck
and even shoulders if you wish) and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse
with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Day 2: Moisturize
a bowl, mix 2 tablespoons honey, 2 tablespoons regular or corn
(non-GMO) or potato flour, and 2 tablespoons of milk until a creamy and
smooth. Spread the mask on the skin (face and/or body). Leave on for
15-20 minutes and rinse.
Day 3: Nourish
2 teaspoons of freshly cooked and pureed pumpkin, half a teaspoon of
honey, and a few drops of whole milk. (For dry skin, exchange milk for
one-quarter teaspoon heavy whipping cream or, for extremely dry and
sensitive skin, extra virgin olive oil or for oily skin, one-quarter
teaspoon of cranberry juice.) Mix gently and apply to your face with
clean hands, avoiding the eye area. Rest and relax for 10-15 minutes.
Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow up with a non-comedogenic
Walk, bike, swim or do any other mild to moderate physical exercise every day for 3 days straight.
Day 1: exercise at least 10 minutes or more
Day 2: exercise at least 15-20 minutes or more
Day 3: exercise at least 30 minutes or more
