It’s that time of the year when all you need to do is recover after a month full of celebrations! Whether you are feeling sleep-deprived or if you have indulged too much in sweet this season, our guide to post-festival detox will whizz up your life all over again.
The party is over, for at least some time! Get your skin breathing with an easy DIY Apple Pie home spa. Apples are high in potassium and vitamins A & C. The malic acid in apples acts as an exfoliating enzyme that removes dead skin cells and surface dirt.
Here is the recipe for a fab Apple pie spa- Take 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar, Add 1 tablespoon fresh apple puree, lastly, add 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon powder to the mixture. Mix all ingredients well and apply scrub to skin in a circular motion. Pay special attention to rough spots like elbows, heels, and knees. Rinse well and apply olive oil after.
Cleanse The Body
After all the consumption of rich foods and alcohol during your festive period, it’s time to cleanse the body of those additional toxins. Start your day with a cop of warm water followed by green tea and juice. Breakaway from caffeine for some time and instead have 2-3 cups of green tea every day. This is a fantastic detoxifier and your body will thank you for it!
Take a Breather From Bling
You've done your best and dressed up to the nines and now it's time to go in for causal comfortable clothing and lounge away. Shop for shirt style dresses from portals like Stylista
and pair it up for comfortable wedges or quirky slippers. To add a bit of glam, use accessories like statement neckpieces & earrings which are easy to carry. Simple but not heavy.
Holiday Calorie Burn
Hit the gym to burn those holiday calories. Exercise is a very valuable addition to any detox plan; opt for yoga for both your body and mind rejuvenation or hard core cardio at the gym. Exercising will help you to remain focused, relaxed and will help you deal with your sugar cravings in a much better way!
Follow this simple detox plan and get ready for the second edition of party season this year!
