Post-Holiday 3-Day Detox For Acne Prone Skin

Post-Holiday 3-Day Detox For Acne Prone Skin

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.

Follow these 3 essential steps to get back on track. The best scenario involves combining all 3 steps in a 3-day super detox. If you cannot do it all together however, do it in 2 or 3 consecutive mini-detox periods.  

3-Day Easy & Healthy Cleansing:

  • Eat 1/2 of your normal food portions.
  • Drink twice as much water or mint or chamomile tea as you usually drink.  
  • Do not consume any desserts, cookies, sugar or any sugar substitutes.
  • Do not drink coffee, hot cocoa or alcohol (or any products containing them.

3-Day Easy & Healthy Masks Detox

Day 1:  Exfoliate

Mash 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

In 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

Combine 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 moisturizer.

3-Day Easy & Healthy Physical Renewal  

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
