When it comes to caring for your skin it can be a confusing knowing what to do for the best. With so many lotion and potions on the market, not to mention what you should and shouldn't eat, how do you get glowing skin without breaking the bank, or losing your mind? COSMETIC has chosen 3 ways to improve your complexion and skin hydration - and the best bit? They all give you results in 7 days or less.

1. Go Makeup Free

It might sound simple, but just being without makeup for 2 days a week can help improve your complexion, according to new research.Ditching your daily foundation coverage and letting your skin breathe has been tipped as the top tip by skin experts in America, with the view that having a 2 day break from pore-clogging makeup can improve the overall look and feel of your skin. Celeb fans of this trend include actresses Michelle Keegan and Gweneth Paltrow, both of which are always sporting a flawless look - now we know why!

Cosmetic Magazine,

I decided on trying to put less processed foods in my body and living a healthier lifestyle and thought that the best way to start would be to do a DETOX first.

What I liked about I Love Fresh was that they recommended 3 days which seems much more realistic. I had a wide variety of juices to choose from rather than a set menu.

I came down with a flu virus 42 hours before commencing the detox and didn't think I would be able to proceed. But then thought why not and I really believe that the packed in goodness of all the fruit and vegetables enabled me to kick the virus in the butt:-).

I intended to cleanse my body of toxins quarterly with I LOVE FRESH. The service, products and packaging were fantastic!

I Loved this Juice Cleanse, it was the first one I have ever done and I didn't struggle at all. I was full everyday and didn't have any cravings.

Would definitely recommend for someone looking to start a healthy eating regime or a weight loss programme. Also if someone had an important day they need to lose weight for. THANK YOU I LOVE FRESH for helping me lose an amazing 7lbs!

I'd been stuck at the same weight now for so long, so was so shocked to have lost so much in three days!
