If you’re anything like us, you probably need to shake off the past twelve months ( and especially the past two weeks – we may have over done the turkey and potatoes, whoops! ). Luckily, January is the perfect time for a little detox. We’ve got a full 12 months of possibility ahead of us, and what better way to get started than to wipe the slate clean? Are you ready to jump start the new year? Here are our tips to get you detoxed and ready for a new start.
1. Exercise is a great way to get your detox started. Even just a quick walk around your neighborhood or a relaxing yoga session will get your circulation going, delivering oxygen and blood to your cells. A little gentle stretching before bed will also bring on a great night’s sleep.
2. Body brushing is a supermodel’s shortcut to soft, toned limbs, but it’s also a great way to detox. Using a firm, natural bristle brush like Elemis Body Detox Skin Brush before your shower is a great way to not only exfoliate your skin, but also stimulate your lymphatic system and increase circulation.
3. A warm bath can be super relaxing, but did you know it can also help you detox? Throw in a handful of Dermalogica Hydro-Active Mineral Salts to draw out toxins and revitalize you while you soak. These salts also contain kelp extract and lavender to hydrate and soothe your skin.
4. Don’t forget to detox your facial skin. With all of the holiday parties, you probably wore a lot more makeup than usual. Use a clarifying mask like Murad Clarifying Colloidal Sulfur Mask to draw out impurities, excess oil, and acne-causing bacteria from your skin. Get ready to start the new year with flawless skin!
