Before you embark on a cleanse or a new clean eating plan be ready for a flare up in your perioral dermatitis or breakout in your acne. Your body is detoxing and flushing out all those toxins and especially if you have been eating bad choices and haven’t been drinking much water. Be prepared for your skin to get worse before it gets better. When I begin a cleanse usually like clockwork on day three I will have a flare up in my PD. But I persist and continue the cleanse by drinking loads of water because I know my skin will take time to clear. In the past I have done an online nutrition plan and a three day juice detox and both times I broke out with PD. I remember being so deflated because I had fairly good skin before the detox began. But it's at this stage you make or break the situation so soldier on!
I would not suggest starting a detox coming up to an important event, not that we have many big events to go to these days, which makes it the perfect time to do a cleanse. But I would avoid doing it right before a special occasion, maybe do the cleanse a month before. I find green tea, green juices and regular masks and lots of water is the system that works best for me. What are your best tips for doing a cleanse?
