Post-Thanksgiving Skin Detox

I woke up yesterday with an angry red zit that covered approximately 95% of my chin. Okay, I might be exaggerating a bit, but I suspect that all the greasy foods I consumed over Thanksgiving weekend have triggered a breakout. Call it revenge of the deep-fried turkey. 

Since I know better than to give into temptation and pop my own zit, I’m treating my skin with products. The first step: Avène’s Cleanance Soap-Free Gel Cleanser. It’s a gentle, pH-balanced formula made with French thermal spring waters designed to calm and soften blemish-prone skin. Unlike your run-of-the-mill cleansers, it gets rid of dirt and oil without depositing icky residue into my pores. Armed with my new go-to cleanser and a diet full of leafy greens, my skin is already starting to clear up (just in time for the next round of holiday festivities).

While your skin is detoxing, pick up a full-coverage concealer like Benefit’s Erase Paste.
