How to Detox in January Without Giving Up Alcohol

The only thing that should be dry this month is your martini

Congratulations—you made it through the first week of 2017. You deserve a drink for dutifully returning to reality after a lengthy holiday hiatus. And here at Fashion Unfiltered, the only thing we like dry in January is a martini, so go ahead and knock back some booze. No judgment. But just because you haven’t sworn off alcohol doesn’t mean you can’t detox and start over fresh. Why not clean out your makeup bag and bathroom cabinet instead of your at-home bar? Then, swap in some skin-, nail-, and strand-repairing formulas that will take your look back to baseline after it’s been ravaged by late nights, long flights, and way too much champagne. 

VMV Hypoallergenics makes it easy with an all-in-one kit that includes everything you need to complete a week-long “skin fast.” With nine formulas free of 76 common allergens, think of this set like an elimination diet for your face. If you’re not ready to go cold turkey with your entire complexion regimen, consider unclogging pores with Goldfaden MD’s Facial Detox mask that uses sulfur to draw out impurities. Or undo the damage of the day while you sleep with Murad’s antioxidant-rich City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer, a formula made with urban girls in mind. Slough away dry patches with Susanne Kaufmann’s Detox Oil Scrub laced with exfoliating poppy seeds, then slip into Pursoma’s Digital Detox Bath designed to help you unplug with circulation-boosting sea salt and purifying French green clay. Christophe Robin’s Detox Hair Ritual Kit rebalances your scalp and strands via a clarifying shampoo, scrub, and hydrating hair cream, while The Beauty Chef’s Cleanse Inner Beauty Powder, infused with 45 good-for-you organic ingredients (like fruits, veggies, herbs, and enzymes), helps offset the liquor coursing through your veins (this is probably wishful thinking, but hell, it can’t hurt).
