The Complete Post-Holiday Detox

Anyone else *ahem* overindulge a bit this holiday season?  Personally, I think I ate wayyyyyy more cookies in a period of a week than I did in all of 2012.  (btw, I’ll be sure to share my mom’s recipe for Inside Out Chocolate Chip cookies in a later post.  They are AMAZING!)

So here’s to starting out 2013 with a clean and hydrated slate!


cleanse the inside:   1  /  2  /  3  /  4  /  5

repair the outside:   1  /  2  /  3  /  4

Cleanse the Inside:

1 & 2    BluePrint Cleanse and The 3-Day Cleanse:  Drink Fresh Juice, Eat Real Food, and Get Back in Your Skinny Jeans by Zoe Sakoutis and Erica Huss:  A few years ago, when I had far more disposable income, I did one of BluePrint’s three-day cleanses.  By day two, I definitely missed chewing, but I have to say that by the end, I had never felt so clean and light.  Now, the founders of BluePrint Cleanse have written a new bible on juicing and clean eating so that those of us with a juicer or an ever-coveted Vitamix can turn these healthy (but expensive) splurges into  everyday eating patterns.

3   Skinnygirl Daily Cleanse and Restore:  Contains fiber, probiotics, and essential nutrients and greens.  It’s like doing a mini-juice cleanse once a day!

4 & 5   B-Complex and a good antioxidant repair and hydrate your cells.

Repair the Outside:

1     Boscia Luminizing Black Mask:  This mineral-rich mask contains clay and antioxidants, and peels off to reveal tighter pores and brighter skin.  I use this mask weekly and have yet to be able to peel the entire thing off in one go.  Also, just a heads up:  try to avoid getting the mask on your eyebrows or hairline…the mask will definitely take a few stray hairs with it if you’re not careful!

2    AHAVA Natural Dead Sea Mud:  Dead sea mud does for your body what the Boscia mask does for your face, just without the peeling.

3    Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores:  I’ve heard really good things about this mask, and it seems like a less expensive alternative to the Boscia Mask…

4    Ren Active 7 Radiant Eye Maintenance Gel:  Promises to get rid of dark circles and puffiness…which I definitely need after a crush of late nights and copious amounts of wine!
