Pre-Vacation Detox Guide

lafemmeprojects blog post post vacation picture

The On-the-go, global lifestyle is here to stay. And the summer season is the penultimate time to be active and to show some skin. As we plan our escapes and outfits, we often neglect what our own body needs prior to takeoff. After all, who wants to show up on the first day of vacation with that tired and lack-luster look?

 

In our Pre-Vacation Detox Guide, we recommend a few tips in order to look and feel fantastic from the minute you embark on your next trip.

 

1. Juice-Up! (3-5 days prior)

 

3-5 days of replacing carbonated beverages or lattes with cold-press juices can do wonders to your skin. Look out for juices particularly with carrots, beets, parsley, cucumber, ginger and spinach as they provide the essential nutrients such as Vitamin K, Beta-carotene, Vitamin C. Results are almost instant, reducing dry skin, dark circles, and boosting your natural glow. We recommend the following cold-press juiceries from our favorite cities.

2. At-Home Facial (1-3 days prior)

 

As if we have enough time between our to-do-lists at home and at work prior to vacation. The facial masks we recommend below provide an overall benefit, therefore not targeting specific skin concerns, and do not cost a lot of time. In fact, these masks will not take more than 20 minutes of your time and will eliminate all the dullness in your skin.
