Skin Deep – HCG Diet Personal Care Products
It is so important to be aware of everything that comes in contact with your skin while on the HCG Diet. Per Dr. Simeons' manuscript, "When no dietary error is elicited, we turn to cosmetics. Most women find it hard to believe that fats, oils, creams and ointments applied to the skin are absorbed and interfere with weight reduction by HCG just as if they had been eaten. This almost incredible sensitivity to even such very minor increases in nutritional intake is a peculiar feature of the HCG method. For instance, we find that persons who habitually handle organic fats, such as workers in beauty parlors, masseurs, butchers, etc. never show what we consider a satisfactory loss of weight unless they can avoid fat coming into contact with their skin."
We have many participants experience this 'feature' of the HCG Diet, and it isn't fun at all!
For body lotion, you can use mineral oil, but there is a line of personal care items designed and developed specifically for the HCG Diet and other oil-free plans like Nutrimost and Shape Reclaimed. The HCG Diet personal care products we suggest are:
For your body, lotion is a must-have! It helps your hands, feet, legs and body survive the month of HCG, especially in the winter. Tiffalina’s Body Lotion is a great alternative and, remember, you can use your luxurious lotions as soon as you move on to maintenance.
For shampoo and conditioner, you’d be surprised at how many fats, oils, and extracts are in shampoo and conditioner. But not in Tiffalina’s Shampoo and Conditioner!
For your face, Tiffalina's Face Cream.
