Detox Cleanse – Day Three – Fini! Next Challenge???

happy girlHurray! I just downed the last of my smoothie meals for the 3-Day Detox Cleanse.   When I wake in the morning, I’ll determine whether or not this challenge was beneficial; examining the pros and cons.

With all the extra fruits and vegetables I have on hand since my hubby declined to continue the program with me past the 1st breakfast, I’ll have to think of good recipes to use them up or freeze them.  It REALLY bothers me to waste food, so it’s time to be creative!

This cleanse was part of spring cleaning my health.   I’m still tackling chores in the household, outside and within. 

Winter wreaks havoc on the skin, especially for those who live in cold climates. To get my skin in shape for the warmer weather, I’ve been exfoliating and using body cream to keep it smooth and hydrated.  Lotions are fine to use for everyday hydration at other times of the year, but in the winter especially, body creams and butters work best at keeping the skin moist and smooth. 

It’s best to use body creams when the skin is still moist, after stepping out of the bath or shower and lightly towel drying.   Moist skin helps absorb the creams and lotions better.  Some of my favorites are:

For the Face:     Neutrogena

Neutrogena facial moisturizer

For the Body:   Mango Body Butter and Shea Cashmere Lotion

Mango body buttershea cashmere

foot cream

For the Feet:   Shea It Isn’t So

On that note, I think I’m off to a nice warm bath and then some more pampering!
