4. DO A SKIN FAST

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Fun, Fearless Beauty -

Skin spe­cial­ist Dr. Terry Loong be­lieves every­one can ben­e­fit from a twice-a-year three-week skin fast, us­ing only a gen­tle cleanser and sun­screen. Mois­turis­ers of­ten sit on the sur­face of skin, trick­ing it into think­ing it’s hy­drated. It then stops pro­duc­ing nat­u­ral hy­dra­tion, lead­ing to dry­ness, mean­ing our oil re­serves kick in and cause break­outs. “By cut­ting it out, the skin’s hy­drat­ing and re­pair mech­a­nism can re­boot,” ex­plains Dr. Loong. “It will take a few days to ad­just (skin will ei­ther feel oily or dry).” You can use serum if nec­es­sary; they’re wa­ter-based, so won’t sit on the skin.
