After the Holidays 2-Week Detox Plan for Your Best Skin


Holistic nutritionist Nilli Grutman knows what nutrients a body needs in order to produce healthy, radiant skin. “This plan, which I have my patients with skin issues follow, is perfectly balanced in protein, carbs and fat, and was structured specifically to combat problematic skin,” she says. It just may be the perfect thing to reset your complexion after all that holiday snacking!

1/6
Morning Routine
Every morning when you wake up, drink 16 oz. of apple vinegar tea:
  • 16 oz warm water
  • 1 tbsp raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp raw honey
“Drinking warm water and apple cider vinegar in the morning helps your gall bladder flush out extra bile and toxins that your body worked hard to eliminate throughout the night,” says Grutman. “The honeyamplifies the detoxifying power of the vinegar.”

2/6
Breakfast
Veggie Smoothie:
  • 2 cups butter lettuce
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 celery stalks (with the celery leaves)
  • 1 handful of parsley
  • 1 banana or 1 ½ cup pineapple
  • ½ cup ice
  • 1 cup water
“Combine all the ingredients in a high power blender and blend until smooth,” says Grutman. “This drink is a mega skin tamer! Butter lettuce will decrease skin inflammation more than any other vegetable. And, the chlorophyll and water content in the cucumber, celery and parsley help restore your skin.”

3/6
Snack
¼ cup raw almonds (a great source of fat and protein, and one of the gentlest fats on the liver)

4/6
Lunch
  • 1 cup of white, brown, black or wild rice(or roasted sweet potato)
  • Large salad consisting of any vegetable you like
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper per taste preference
Grutman says rice is easy on the digestive tract and loaded with fiber. “Fiber helps eliminate the waste that can sometimes get reabsorbed by our digestive tracts,” she adds. “This reabsorbed waste can come out through the skin as acne, psoriasis or dermatitis.”

5/6
Snack
1 orange, grapefruit or apple (citrus fruits are great for liver cleansing)

6/6
Dinner
  • 4 oz. grilled fish or 1 cup of mung beans
  • Unlimited steamed vegetables consisting of any veggie you like
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper per taste preference
“This is a great meal for both your liver and your digestive tract!” Grutman says.
