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 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!
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!
