Dr. Taz MD’s 7-Day Spring Beauty Boot Camp

It’s time to emerge from hibernation and get ready to show some skin. Here is my 7-day guide to looking and feeling your best this spring.

Days 1-3: Banish Belly Fat

Use the first three days to clean up your belly and lose a little excess winter weight. Start with a 3-day detox such as this one, adapted from the first three days of The 21-Day Belly Fix.

Here is the plan:

1) Begin the morning with 1-2 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar diluted in water.

2) Follow this with a protein shake for breakfast.

3) Have a green drink for lunch (such as this one).

4) Eat a large plant based meal for dinner.

5) Throughout the day, drink 100 oz. water.

Modification: Don’t have time for all the prep? Just focus on eating pure simple foods, adding in the raw apple cider vinegar and daily green drink.

Days 4-6: Exfoliate Your Winter Skin

For the body: Mix 1 cup of Dr. Teal’s Epsom salts with a healthy oil for the skin – coconut, olive, or jojoba. Create a thick paste and scrub before your shower. After the shower, add 1-2 teaspoons of your favorite oil to your moisturizer, and apply head to toe.

For the face: Fermented foods aren’t just for your belly. They also work as a natural source of anti-microbials and skin sloughing lactic or glycolic acid. Try this nourishing mask for a glowing spring face.

Dr. Taz face mask:

  • 2 teaspoons of kefir or yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Apply for 15-30 minutes, then rinse clean.

Day 5-7: Tackle the Cellulite

Keep it up with the green drinks and 100 oz. of water.

Days 5-7 strive for at least ten minutes of weights and/or pilates. Here are a couple of good exercises you can do anywhere.

This combination will reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Once you have completed this 7-day boot camp you should be full of energy and motivation. Keep up some or all of these healthy habits throughout the spring and summer months!
