If you're like most women, you've been on a never-ending quest for perfect skin-or even just good skin-since adolescence. Why is it so hard to get good skin?
Adina Grigore, founder of the organic skin-care line S.W. Basics, would argue that getting clear, calm, happy skin is about much more than products and peels. Or, rather, it's about much less. In Skin Cleanse, she guides readers through a holistic program designed to heal their skin from the inside out.
Adina's program begins as any healthy regime should: with the basics for full-body health. That means eating plenty of fresh, whole foods; drinking more water; getting blood pumping and oxygen flowing to your cells through movement; and giving your skin a chance to repair and regenerate by resting.
From there, readers are challenged to a skin cleanse that requires going product-free for twenty-four hours. Once detoxed, Adina then shows you how to overhaul your beauty routine, how to carefully add some products back in, and even how to make your own products at home, with advice and targeted solutions for specific skin conditions such as acne, dry skin, oily skin, and more. The secret to beautiful, stress-free skin is simple: it's an inside job.
