Recommended New Year’s Eve Diet:
# 1. Kefir day… Buy 2 liters of kefir and drink it throughout the day. Naturally, except for kefir on this day, no other food should get into your stomach.
# 2. Buckwheat or rice day. These days are incredibly rewarding. Buckwheat because it contains a lot of iron, protein and other useful elements, and rice perfectly removes excess water from the body. Here you yourself will determine the framework for yourself, because you will not eat much anyway.
No. 3. Apple day… You can eat 1.5 kg of green apples per day, as well as about 4 glasses of freshly squeezed apple juice.
No. 4. Curd day. You will need 600 gr. low-fat cottage cheese and a little low-fat sour cream. Divide the curd into several meals and consume throughout the day.
No. 5. Tea day. It is carried out on green tea. It can be said that this is the most difficult type of fasting day, but at the same time it is also the most effective and useful. You need to drink at least 2 liters of fluid throughout the day.
By the way, it is highly recommended to spend several days of fasting after the New Year holidays. In a couple of weeks, you can easily get rid of not only the consequences of Olivier and delicious herring under a fur coat, but also a few extra pounds.

Then massage gently and remove with a cotton swab with warm water. If you have sensitive skin, then exclude soda from the list.

Purifying mask for oily skin
For her you will need: white clay, strong black tea leaves and honey. Mix everything until a mushy consistency is obtained and apply on the face for at least 10 minutes. After the specified time, rinse off the face. Honey nourishes the skin with beneficial substances and cleanses from impurities, while clay and tea will even out the complexion.
Nourishing “yoghurt” for normal to dry skin

Again, mix everything and apply on the face and neck for 15-20 minutes. Honey will remove all impurities, yoghurt will soften and nourish the skin, and the zest will give the effect of elasticity and a pleasant aroma.
Just remember that it is advisable to wash off any mask with boiled or filtered purified water, because raw water (from the tap) can be harmful!
The effect of masks can be enhanced with phyto drinks or herbal teas. These are decoctions and infusions of medicinal herbs, the active substances of which nourish the germ layer of the epidermis, in which, in fact, new skin cells are formed, in other words, they affect the skin from the inside. You can buy ready-made teas, already collected in the required proportions, or you can prepare it yourself.

Drink in the morning before breakfast. You can also wash your face with this infusion every morning or just wipe your skin with a cotton pad.
What to do the day before the New Year
But then day X has come. The clock is 21.00. Everything is ready for the celebration, the table is set, there is time left for yourself (ideally). It would not hurt to take a soothing and relaxing bath a couple of hours before the New Year. It will help you collect your thoughts and take a break from the tedious preparation for the holiday.
After that, a contrast shower is desirable, which will invigorate your body and spirit and fill it with a supply of energy that is so necessary before New Year’s Eve, because you would not want to fall asleep from fatigue after one glass of champagne.
After water treatments, take care of your face – rub it with an ice cube for a few minutes along the massage lines, this will help to quickly put the skin in order. Just don’t dry it with a towel – let it dry out on its own. It is desirable that the cube be made from frozen mineral water or decoctions of nettle herb, chamomile flowers or calendula.
Next, apply a mask of cucumber and sour cream to the skin, and lie down with it for about 20 minutes so that all the beneficial substances get as deep as possible, then rinse, moisturize the skin with a light cream and feel free to start makeup. After all, now your face will simply shine, all that remains is to emphasize its natural beauty.
