The most indulgent time of the year is finally here. Don’t get us wrong, here at Herbivore, we love the holiday season just as much as everyone, but between the trains, planes, and one too many servings of pie, you’re guaranteed to feel a little bit more sluggish than usual. Don’t opt out of holiday hobnobbing, but instead keep your spirits high with some simple detox tips. Here, our tips for a cheery holiday season.
Drink an extra dose of H2O. One of the most important tips to stay healthy during holiday season is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate (we can’t emphasize this enough)! Traveling, sugar, and all those Hot Toddies can all lead to dehydration, which can result in unwanted breakouts and low energy. Making sure to drink more water than normal will help keep your body functioning optimally. For an extra boost, add lemon into your water to aid in detoxification and cleanse the liver.
Stay grounded with aromatherapy on-the-go. These Soul Sunday Aromatherapy Roller Blends are perfect to include in your everyday wellness ritual, wherever you go. Even Keel’s soft lavender scent relaxes nervous tension while geranium + sandalwood in Lush evoke feelings of optimism. Find your essential oil blend and feel revitalized and balanced this holiday season.
Body Brush – One of the best ways to keep your lymphatic system working is dry skin brushing. This Polishing Body Brush by Aromatherapy Associates can be taken anywhere you go to decrease puffiness and energize skin wherever you are. Made with natural cactus sisal bristles to help leave your skin looking bright, fresh and even, it also helps promotes circulation to leave you feeling healthy, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
Soak your troubles away. Made with naturally cleansing and detoxifying blue clay, our Detox Bath Salts are perfect to keep close by during the holidays. Naturally scented with eucalyptus and lavender, adding these gorgeous blue salts to your bath will not only help detoxify your body but will offer you a nice escape from the hubbub.
Surround yourself with calming Amethyst. Between frantic mall crowds and overbearing in-laws, this season is not without its share of stress. Use our Amethyst Body Polish 2-3 times a week and bask in the tranquility of real crushed gemstone in the sanctuary of your bath or shower. Another amethyst tip: Keep a crystal cluster in your home to absorb and remove the negative energy and restore emotional balance.
Break out the tools. If you haven’t jumped on the facial roller train, now is the time! Our Jade Roller brings you peace and harmony as it improves skin’s elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Our Rose Quartz Roller helps reduce muscle tension and stress in a small exercise in self-love. Not only do they help to decrease puffiness, they increase blood circulation in the face which will leave your skin glowing and luminous for your various festive siorées. For an extra skin tightening benefit, place your roller in the fridge for a few minutes prior to use.
