The 5-2 diet promisses you a younger looking skin in four weeks. If you think I’m talking about eating normally for five days and then fasting for two, you are wrong!
The best part about this method is that it is free, surprisingly easy and has nothing to do with food… although eating healthy will do miracles for your skin too.
A younger, healthier and clearer skin in just one month: Doesn’t it sound like an advertisement for a very expensive Hollywood facial cream? Better than that! Dermatologists from the UK have found out that you don’t exactly need cosmetics to have a healthier skin, all you have to do is to remove your makeup and let your skin breath for 2 days.
Most women wear daily makeup but our sensitive facial skin needs every now and then a break of cosmetics. According to a british study if you wear no makeup for two days a week, you will see an improvement of your skin image after a month.
- Cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin every night – BUT avoid make-up wipes!
- Use the 2 days break to detox your skin using a clarifying clay mask and steam your face in hot water and camomile tee to open pores.
- If you use a corrective eye serum to reduce the dark circles under your eyes, you will not need a concealer!
- For a natural glow use a skin-illuminating moisturiser and a slick of vaseline on the eyebrows and lips.
- If you don’t feel comfy to go makeup free, opt for a BB cream.
