Did you enjoy a few too many sunset spritz’s and cheese platters during the summer break? Yeah, same.
If your Christmas and New Year break looked anything like ours, you had the best time with family and friends, eating bulk food and drinking rosè in the summer sunshine with zero regrets. Good on you babe, that’s what vacays are all about.
The only downfall about a fun-filled vacay is that eventually you have to return home to reality. As if getting back into your routine isn't hard enough after two weeks of 10am sleep ins, sometimes a combination of the heat with a few too many cocktails can leave you feeling a little sluggish, weighed down and puffy.
We’ve all been there and it’s nothing that can't be fixed with some wholesome food, water and a few healthy lifestyle hacks. Here we have put together 5 simple ways to detox that don't require too much time away from the beach, just a little bit of planning and self-loving TLC.
Drink warm water with lemon
Stock up on some of the bright citrus fruits and begin your day with warm lemon water. Warm lemon water alkalizes your body, gets your metabolism moving and helps curve those sweet cravings throughout the day.
You’re probably a little dehydrated after your vacay so getting your daily water intake is essential to filter out any toxins and get your skin back to its best glowing self. If you’re not great at remembering to drink water, set an alarm on your phone to make sure you drink at least one big glass every hour.
Focus on plant-based meals
You might be tempted to continue your daily intake of cheesy pasta but some plant-based meals will make you feel much better. Increasing your daily intake of fruits, veggies and plant-based proteins is the perfect way to increase energy and say goodbye to any sluggishness.

Give yourself a facial
If you haven't heard about crystal facial rollers then you’re in for a treat. The crystal skincare tools are currently taking the beauty world by storm due to their endless list of skin benefits.
Rub a generous amount of our Natural Tanning & Body Oil on your face and grab your crystal facial roller for a relaxing (and free) facial in the comfort of your home. Massaging your face with the roller will revitalise your complexion by increasing blood circulation, improving tone, elasticity and reducing puffiness and wrinkles. A 30-minute facial using this hero duo will have your skin looking brighter instantly.
#BBProTip: Put your roller in the fridge or freezer to keep it super cold before rolling it over your face and neck. This is the ultimate trick for maximum de-puffing in the morning!
Yoga is the quickest way to get your energy system back into balance without going too hard to soon and feeling like you might die in an F45 class. It is also the best mood booster and you can do it at home while you enjoy your warm lemon water before work.
Start with doing 20-30 minutes to get your exercise routine back on track then increase your intensity every time. Add in a few sprays of the Hydrating Face & Body Mist before and after your session for an added freshen up.
Start your 2019 year off with some goal visualisation for the next 12 months. Setting goals gives you focus and a reason to push yourself with a clear target in mind. Make them specific and measurable so you can look back on your year and measure whether or not you have been successful.
Whether you like to write things down or create more of a visual goals board, having goals for the year will be a constant motivator whenever you need a little bit (or a lot) of inspiration in your life. Read your 2019 horoscopes here for a look into what this year might bring.
