The holidays can be magical time filled with food, family, and gifts, but it’s also often the time we choose to end our diets and break our healthy routines. It makes sense, then, that the practice of the New Year’s resolution has tons of people hitting the gym and trying to get everything back on track. A popular way to reverse holiday indulgences is to detox, wipe the slate clean so that you can start off on the right foot again. Detoxing doesn’t have to include difficult changes, like drinking exclusively green juices for 3 days. It can also mean taking time for self-care, going to your favorite yoga class, or switching up your skincare routine. Read on for some tips on how to get the most out of your New Year’s resolutions with a few small changes that can lead to big results.
Water = Life
Water is one of the easiest and best ways to help detox your skin and body. Try to drink half of your ideal weight in ounces (if your ideal weight is 120 lbs, drink 60 ounces or about 7.5 cups a day.) For additional cleansing benefits, add in lemon, which aids in digestion. HydroPeptide’s Somnifera Root Mist incorporates detoxifying water with its patented HydrO18 Activated Water, which nourishes and hydrates skin throughout the day.
Sleep Like A Baby
Sleep is a super important part of your body’s reparative process. It has been connected to weight loss, reduced cortisol levels and stress. Looking to maximize the detoxing effects of sleep? Swipe on HydroPeptide’s HydraFlora Essence right before you pass out. The pre and probiotics will help your skin rebuild its defenses so that it can protect itself from free radicals and environmental pollutants better the next day.
Sweat It Out
Working out is one of the best ways to get toxins out of your system quickly, and it has been shown to help elevate mood and energy, but it can also wreak havoc on your skin. Pack your gym bag with HydroPeptide’s HydroActive Cleansing Wipes so that you can quickly remove sweat and toxins from the surface of your skin after a workout while keeping skin balanced and hydrated.
Take A Break
Detoxing isn’t just about what you do, it can also be about what you DON’T do. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of day to day life to practice self-care. Some ways you can do that are through meditation, cleaning your house, reading a book, or doing a facial. If the last one sounds appealing to you, we suggest combining one of our detoxifying Bambusa Blackhead Banisher nose masks with a face mask of your choice, for some targeted skin treatment action. Bonus: The selfies you take will provide some serious comic relief.
