After a harrowing week at work, it make a lot of sense to detoxify your body and relieve the stress of the work week. Here are some tried and tested techniques that will keep you feeling and looking your best:
1. A foot soak may help soothe the aches in that area from long standing and walking around. Make a soothing soak for yourself by combining quarter cup of Epsom salt and 2 tablespoons of baking soda in a basin of warm water. Soak your feet in this mixture until it goes cold. Epsom salt relieves muscle pains and fungus while baking soda aids in dead skin removal.
2. Wash your make up gear. Washing your makeup brushes is indirectly connected to your skin’s health. Over time, dirty brushes collect all kinds of makeup and old skin cells, which get transferred to your face when you apply makeup next. To give your brushes a much needed detox, wash them in a solution of 1 cup warm water, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons baby shampoo. Wash the bristles thoroughly, rinse under running water and air dry naturally.
3. Drink lots of water. Ensure that you have a pitcher of infused water to sip on all day. Infused water will help you reach your daily hydration goals, tastes a lot better than water and cleanses the internal tract. Add 5 lemon wedges, 3 sprigs of mint and 6 slices of cucumber to a glass jug and refrigerate overnight.
4. Body scrubs with natural products can soothe your mind and body. Since many of us forget to exfoliate during the week; over the weekend, get busy with a natural scrub that you can make yourself at home. Combine half a cup of granulated white or brown sugar with half a cup of coconut oil and 3 drops of lavender essential oil. Mix well and gently massage it all over your face. When washing off 10 minutes later, scrub your skin in a circular motion until it has dissolved. This will naturally drive dead skin away and brighten your face.
