beauty detox There may be a long list of things you’re recovering from today. We can’t really help you with that chardonnay headache you’re battling or aid in your return to the paleo diet, but your beauty recovery–that we’ve got covered. Instead of braving the malls, stay inside and spend your Black Friday beauty detoxing…OK, beauty detoxing while you shop the deals online.

Reduce Puffy Eyes

Between the stuffing, the mashed potatoes, the gravy and pretty much everything else on the Thanksgiving dinner table, you consumed a lot of salt yesterday. All that extra sodium is going to show up on your face. Relieve puffy eyes with a refreshing eye mask. Just sit back, close your eyes and let Sephora Instant Depuffing Eye Mask reduce the signs of yesterday’s overindulgence. Keep the eye energizing going and ward off dark circles morning and night with the caffeine-spiked Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller.  

Beat Breakouts

Blame it on holiday stress, falling asleep on the couch without washing your face (thank you, tryptophan!), or the excessive amount of refined sugar you ate last night (maybe that second slice of pecan pie wasn’t such a good idea), but a post-Thanksgiving blemish is almost inevitable. Apply Kiehl’s Blue Herbal Spot Treatment at the first sign of an intruder to stop the spot in its tracks. Switch to a heavy-duty healer at night. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion will zap any zit by the A.M.  

Alleviate Dull Skin and Dryness

The holiday tunes are playing, the shopping has started and it’s just plain cold outside. The transition to winter is in full swing and your skin is suffering the consequences of yesterday’s experiment in overeating now more than ever. Revive your pre-holiday radiance with brightening mask packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Relax and let your skin drink up all the soothing and hydrating benefits of Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Treatment Mask or Boscia Bright White Mask. Then seal in all the goodness with a beauty oil, like the luxuriously lightweight L’Oréal Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil–you’ll be back to your glowing self in no time.   Are you doing any beauty detoxing today?
