#TransformationTuesday: How to Get Glowing #Skin, #Detox From Within !

image

Change in weather, diet or stress are just 3 of the many things that can wreak havoc on one’s skin. After the new year began, I found that my skin had lost its glow and for a reason why I did not know!

I began the year with a resolution to reintroduce healthy habits into my lifestyle. I tried a detox body treatment for the first time at Exhale (read about my pamper me session  here ! )  So it was quite a surprise to me when last week, my face became red, flaky and itchy. It was just overall uncomfortable. Was it eczema ? an allergic reaction? psoriasis? seborrheic dermatitis?..I did not know! What I did know was like the picture below.. my skin was SAD 🙁

I researched the internet and decided I would do a detox for my facial skin. My breakout occurred in my Tzone area (forhead, nose,chin)  and looked at the facial map as a map on where the problem may lie.

image

OK by the looks of it something I ate may be the culprit so let’s do a detox. I decided upon Dr. OZ‘S 3 DAY Detox as it was simple, took little time and prep, cost was minimal, easy to follow and had rave reviews.

image

The shakes were easy to make and I looked forward to the breakfast and dinner one. Lunchtime was most challenging but I knew I was giving my body what it needs via the leafy greens to combat what was going on with my facial skin.

To understand the importance of detoxing, here are a few graphics that breaks it down as to why everyone should try a detox for the skin.

All you need is a weekend and this past 3 day weekend made it possible along with my suppostive husband and my willpower to do what is good for me from the inside out !

So here is my before, during (where I applied this honey/nutmeg mask that I loved as well)  and after of the past 3 days.

image

I hope I have inspired you to try a detox and encouraged you to love the skin you are in! Remember beauty is skin deep … it starts from within. This Transformation Tuesday treat yourself to a skin detox!

Review: Carefree Organics

 
carefree
My daughter has dimples. And as a result of childbirth, I now do too ..but not the cute ones.
 
   Having a child has changed me in many ways. One of them is choosing to live a more healthier lifestyle. That’s why when Carefree Organics contacted me about their 100% organic preservative-free products for baby, sun, skin and hair, I was excited to try them!Basically Carefree Organics(www.Carefreeorganics.com) is a family-run small business that creates and sells unique and truly natural products for everyone’s skin.One of the products, Radiant Repel is an oil blend that will safely keep pesky critters away. Perfect, as its rainy season in South Florida, summer everywhere and I seem to be on every mosquitoes meal plan. What I appreciate most is the oil absorbs nicely and not only does it hydrate and nourish the skin but it has no chemicals or Deet in the ingredients!Now back to my dimples. Carefree Organics has created Chic Cheeks and sent me a mini bundle package including a smoothing scrub and lotion. Here’s what they say about the Slim Scrub and Terrific Tone:Chic Cheeks Slim Scrub is a combination of coffee, smoothing oils and nourishing Shea butter. Coffee is said to reduce the appearance of cellulite, as is the act of scrubbing itself by stimulating circulation!  
 
To use:  Apply to thighs, bum, and anywhere else prone to bumps, dimples, and cellulite in the shower or bath and rub in a circular motion-the longer the better!  Rinse off.  May be used on the entire body, and works best when paired with the rest of the Chic Cheeks line!

 ingredients*: columbian coffea arabica (coffee) seed, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, shea butter, salvia officinalis (sage) oil, juniperus communis (juniper berry) oil, foeniculum vulgare (fennel) oil, lavandula officianalis (lavender) oil

Chic Cheeks Terrific Tone is a luxurious lotion meant for the entire body to tone and smooth any dimples or bumps.  Packed with nourishing Coconut Oil as well as essential oils said to smooth and lessen the appearance of cellulite while Sage and Lavender add a fresh soft scent!  Great to use with the rest of the Chic Cheeks line or alone for that extra boost!

 To use:  Apply to entire body or where extra toning is desired.  Works best after Slim Scrub, and safe to pair with Bikini Blend!

 ingredients*:  maranta arundinacea root (arrowroot) powder, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil,butyrospermum parkii fruit (shea butter), salvia officinalis (sage) oil, juniperus communis (juniper berry) oil, foeniculum vulgare (fennel) oil, lavandula officianalis (lavender) oil

I have been using this every day for the last 7 days and so far I like the consistency and the fragrance compared to other products I have tried. I don’t expect results over night, but I do respect the quality of the product and can sleep at night knowing this is safe for me and my family and not harmful to the environment.

Thank you for sharing and caring Carefree Organics!
