Overindulged? Don’t worry – most of us have to some extent, over the silly season that was. And, if you are anything like me, I’ve enjoyed every second of indulgence from skipping my morning sweat-sesh for the snooze button to swapping my morning tonics for a triple shot coffee. Hell – I’m not going to lie, there may have been multiple time that champagne was my chosen breakfast companion. Like I always say, life is about balance, it’s so great to be health-conscious and have routine, but it’s more than okay to indulge here and there, it’s imperative for good health that we do so.
“What, champagne breakfast every day you say”? Errr, not quite! Moderation is key, and being able to recognise the difference between treating yourself and an uncontrollable bender that de-rails your wellness-wagon that you have worked so hard to be on is a must.
So, how to kick-start, and rid your body of all that was? Detox my friends, and I’m not talking about the lemon water, harmful laxative teas or the lettuce diet. I’m talking a nourishing whole-body detox, one that improves skin hydration, enhances skin barrier function, decreases inflammation and my favourite of all – removes heavy metal toxins in the body; which, I can assure you will be plentiful.
And how do we do this whilst staying sane, going from a full plate of turkey with all the sides to steamed veg and boiled eggs? (no thanks) We start from the inside out – eliminating all toxins and crowd out unhealthy foods all whilst topping up on the good. And, my favourite secret weapon? Salt Lab Deconstructed Bath Bombs; Enabling you to detox while relaxing. I’m not sure about you, but that sounds bloody ideal to me!!
With a mix of mineral-rich Dead Sea Salt and their abilities to relieve body pain, Magnesium Chloride Flakes to improve skin hydration, decrease inflammation, improve blood circulation and help nutrition absorption, Bentonite Clay with its powerful ability to bind toxins and removing them from the body and Bicarbonate of soda which neutralises skin acidity and is a natural detoxifier – this easy-peasy, ‘throw it in a toasty-warm bath, light a candle and grab your favourite book detox’, sure goes down as one of my favs. I mean, no carrot sticks in sight, we have to be onto a winner, right?!
