Now that the holidays have past, it’s a good time to restart our diets. Thanks to New Year’s resolutions, it’s an easy task to tackle in the first month. However, it’s important to remember that what you eat doesn’t only affect your body and weight, but it can also affect the way your skin reacts. So if you indulged in a little more sugar or alcohol this holiday season, take a look at these tips to detox your skin for that New Year glow.
1) Be Bare. After all that holiday glam, take a break from your makeup so your skin can breathe. Whether it’s giving your skin a makeup break for an entire week, month or just a few days, it will give a pause to added oil, makeup or dirt to pile on your skin.
2) Hydrate and Refresh. With any detox or cleanse, water is essential. This is the same for the skin. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day will help flush all the toxins and provide natural moisture to keep the skin plump and beautiful.
3) Eat Colorfully. Mix your meals with a variety of fruits, veggies, nuts and oils that contain vitamins and antioxidants that not only protect the skin, but keep it hydrated too! Check out this list from OneGreenPlanet.org to learn the best foods for your skin.
4) Treat Your Skin. Did you add routinely pamper sessions to your New Year’s resolution list? Scheduling a monthly facial is not only a personal treat, but it will be great for your skin to reset each month. After the holidays, a thorough facial cleanse, steaming and any specialized skin treatments like peels, exfoliation or a mask will definitely recharge your skin and add a glow to your New You, New Look 2016 mantra.
