Don't Let Dirty Little Toxins Take Over Your Life
March 7, 2008
It's a toxic world out there. Especially if you live in a major city like I do. Just walking to the subway is like a virtual (or actual) breeding ground of germs, pollutants, smog, and all the stress that boils up inside from trying to brave the hectic rush hour. And not to mention the toxins I willingly take into my body in the form of fast foods, sugary snacks, alcohol, and caffeinated drinks – it's a wonder I don't spontaneously combust. Well, before it's too late – for all of us- SheFinds offers a few products that will help you rid your body and mind of those toxins that fill your life with everything yucky. From your hair down to your toes, learn how to detox, relax, and start from square one.
Ojon Detox Recovery Cleanser ($24) will rid your hair of nasty impurities – yes, your hair holds them too – and keep your locks and scalp feeling cleansed and refreshed. It also leaves a subtle scent of peppermint, rosemary, and sage.
Your face is subject to a barrage of pollutants on a daily basis, so give it the star detox treatment with MD Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel ($75). In two steps, your skin will begin to feel cleaner and more beautiful thanks to a blend of hard working Hydroxy acids and soothing plant extracts.
Take care of your lips with the Peter Thomas Roth Lips To Die For Lip Facial Trio ($60), which includes a Lemon Sugar Scrub, Super Smooth Lip Putty, and Pink Bombshell Lip Balm.
Drink your way to a healthy new you with Boots Feel the Difference Detox 5 Day Plan ($20). Unlike those bogus body flushes (um, cayenne pepper and maple syrup? no thanks) Boots comes in yummy strawberry and is sure to get your body back on track.
Your shower is the perfect place to relax, unwind, and of course, detox. So treat yourself to NG Spa Pink Grapefruit & Neroli Bamboo Salt Glow ($26) to exfoliate before you get in the tub. Then lather up with DHC Charcoal Shower Gel ($12.50) – the charcoal actually sucks up unwanted toxins on the spot. For bath aficionados, try the Ina Crystals White Gold Detoxifying Crystal Salt Set ($85) and wave those impurities goodbye.
Okay, this might seem bizarre, but apparently your feet hold the key to the ultimate detoxification of your entire body. Gaiam's Body Purifying Footpads ($24) claim to suck out all the nasty toxins and impurities from your body when placed on the soles of your feet for eight hours when you sleep. They're all the rage in Japan, so it might be worth a try.
