Day 1
After all the partying and excessive intake of junk food and alcohol, use this day to detox. Consume intensely coloured fruits, drink a lot of water. At night use a light scrub to remove the dead cells and add a clear shine to your face.

Day 2
In the morning use your favourite moisturiser, this is not the time to try out new products or experiment with your skin. Stick to a lot of fruits and increase your protein intake. Visit your skin doctor or salon for hydrating the skin and follow it up with a facial.

Day 3
Let your skin be. Allow it to breathe freely.

Day 4
Moisturise your skin. Use warm water to wash your face and if it feels irritable then apply a clay mask to calm it down

Day 5
Your day to shine, be yourself
