hCG Skin Care Solution

If you are on the hCG protocol you know  you cannot use lotion, oils or lubricants on Phase 2.

It is important to stay away from these items while on this program. This includes lotions, oils or lubricants. This also includes all oil-based cosmetics. Fats, oils, creams, lotions and ointments applied to the skin are absorbed and interfere with weight reduction by hCG just as if they had been eaten. The body will stop burning fat and digest these oils instead. Using these items can stall weight loss for 1-3 days.

Watch all cosmetics. Lipsticks and powders are fine but chapstick contains oil. You may also use oil-free foundation or a mineral powder is a good substitute.

Here are a few items you can use if you have dry skin.

Corn Huskers Lotion

An oil-free all over body lotion as well as great hand treatment. Inexpensive, oil-free and does not leave hands with a greasy feel. You will find this at WalMart, Walgreens, etc.

Alba Oil-free Lotion
A daily moisturizer that infuses the skin with rejuvenating aloe vera. Available from your local health food store or a store such as Whole Foods is a great alternative. Make sure you check the ingredients for oils of any type from of any Alba products or ask someone at the health food store to advise you.

Na-PCA
A natural moisturizing factor found in the human skin. Contains pure aloe vera gel and can be used on the face and other skin areas. Available at Whole Foods.

Mineral Oil (baby oil)

This works well applying it to your body after a shower or a bath. You will find this at WalMart, Target, CVS, etc.

    Yaaay for babyoil!! I used it during protocol and now continue using it as needed. I’m glad this article was posted because…while the beginning looks like its bashing babyoil, the end of it confirms that it is “not” harmful to you and your children because its Highly Purified and different from normal mineral oil! I am saving a link so I can send it to everyone as they tell me how bad it is for me…and my daughter who started to have dry skin breakouts around the age of one…
