Ok, so you’ve overdone it. How to detox your system fast, and look your best, post sugar, junk food, or boozey binge.
Girls night, weddings, birthdays, Sundays…we overdo the junk. And reap the consequences afterward in the form of puffiness, sallow complexion, dark circles, and bloating.
You may have to suck it up and suffer through some of it for a few days, but there are ways to get your skin back on track fairly quickly. And we are not just talking cover-up here.
How to Detox Fast and Get Back to Looking Your Best
Hit the ice. Too much salt, sugar or alcohol can leave you just a pinch on the puffy side. To reduce swelling, put your face on ice. An ice cube smoothed over skin calms swelling. A swipe or two will do.
Cool as a cuc. Cucumber is cooling and also helps to reduce swelling and inflammation. Drink a glass of water with a few slices of cucumber to get the soothing started from the inside. Keep 100% Pure Organic Aqua Boost on hand, and spritz face several times throughout the day to hydrate and revive. Or make your own cucumber face mist.
Vinegar for vigor. Apple cider vinegar is good for boosting lymph drainage and detoxing the system. It also helps to balance the body’s pH, which will make your skin look better. Add a tablespoon of Bragg’s Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar to a glass of water or buck up and down a shot.
H2O yes. The best way to flush your system, reduce swelling, revitalize the complexion, and hydrate the body is by drinking water. Bust out your bkr bottle and get some agua flowing, pronto.
Exorcise through exercise. Get rid of those toxic demons by moving some muscle. Whether you opt for light yoga or go for a hearty run, getting blood pumping helps to expel toxins and regulate digestion. It also makes you feel good.
Lay off the hard stuff. This probably goes without saying, but steer clear of sugar, junk, and alcohol for a few days after indulging. Sugar can be especially hard to steer clear of post binge. Opt for fresh, healthy foods and those cravings will dissipate in a day or two.
Hey, no one is perfect. Take these steps to getting yourself back in check and you’ll be looking and feeling better quickly.
