If you’re like most women, you’ve been on a never-ending quest for perfect skin since adolescence. Skin-care expert Adina Grigore helps readers diagnose and understand the underlying causes of their individual skin problems, along with at-home recipes, in her book Skin Cleanse (HarperCollins Publishers, 2015). In this excerpt from chapter 6 “The Skin Cleanse,” Grigore outlines a three-step skin detox that’s customizable.

Sometimes, your skin just needs a break. Think about how much better everything gets when you eat less junk. Your skin is the same: put less junk on it, and it will get better. It can be hard to give up all body-care products completely cold turkey. Thankfully, this skin cleanse is customizable! Start at Level 1 and work your way up to Level 3, or go straight to the level that best matches your routine and your goals for your skin. Let’s get started.

Level 1: Supplement

LENGTH OF TIME: Three days, more if you love it

WHO THIS IS FOR: Beauty junkies looking for some extra nourishment

This is the level for those of you who feel as if you just can’t part with your products or makeup, but you are interested in doing something a little different to get better skin. In Level 1, you don’t have to stop using your products; you’re just going to add in one or two all-natural beauty recipes and you’ll pick one or two of the ingredients to use on their own.
