If you really want to be a purist on the HCG diet, and follow Dr. Simeons protocol exactly, here are a few products we recommend:
-St. Ives, Renewing Collagen Elastin lotion
-Neutrogena oil-free moisturizer
-Celeteque Water-Based Moisturizer
-JOHNSON & JOHNSON Oil-Free Moisturizer
-Aloe Vera 100% Gel Baby Oil (basically mineral oil)
There is a heated debate about whether Dr. Simeons was right about cosmetics decreasing the weight loss on the HCG diet, with some doctors saying that the cosmetics can’t penetrate the skin, something that wasn’t known back in the 1950’s.
According to our own non-scientific feedback from our customers, many women have used all of their regular cosmetics and still had great weight loss results, so we aren’t too picky about it and think you can have success regardless. But, if you really want to follow the original protocol in every possible way, then the above products meet Dr. Simeons specifications.
