How to survive this party season

30 November 2018 16:11

 


The holiday season is finally upon us and as much as we’re excited to see close friends and family while hopping from one cocktails & canapes event to another, it’s also a time when we tend to overindulge. During busy social periods our skin will be one of the first to tell us when we’ve gone a step too far. One to many mulled wines, big meals and late nights and the festivities can start taking their toll, leaving us looking lacklustre and tired. There are however ways to contain some of the more obvious effects without compromising too much on the festive cheer.

Toxins found in food and drinks enter our body through digestion and then directly into our blood stream to be excreted by the liver, kidneys and skin. An easy way to balance all of Christmas’s delicious offerings and revelries is with a diet rich of brightly coloured fruits and vegetables, which are high in anti-oxidants. Foods high in anti-oxidants stimulate the liver which helps detoxify our blood, giving our liver a little more support and keeping it healthier. This will help reduce the amount of toxins reaching the skin and boost that holiday glow.


THE FOODS WE LOVE:


BEETROOTS AND CARROTS.
Both of these vivid root vegetables are power houses of beta-carotene, which is known to stimulate liver function.
LEAFY GREENS
You’ll have heard it before, and you will hear it again, but if you want to detox, try and get leafy greens in as many meals as possible, and they are packed with minerals and vitamins.
GRAPEFRUIT
Rich in glutathione, grapefruit works wonders to aid the liver detox. Also rich in Vitamin C, it helps the liver to produce the detoxifying enzymes that flush out pollutants.
WALNUTS
High in glutathione and omega-3 fatty acids, which all provide support to natural liver cleansing.
GARLIC
Garlic is rich in sulphur, which is essential for supporting the liver and activating liver enzymes that are responsible for flushing out toxins and waste from your body.
TUMERIC
If you know, you know. An incredible spice, bursting with anti-inflammatory anti-oxidants that will help repair liver cells, aid detoxification andprevent against cellular damage.


For an extra boost combine a healthy diet with supplements that are both specifically targeted at boosting skin health and anti-inflammatory, along with topical products that feed skin is vital for optimum skin health.

Last but not least - stay hydrated. Hydration is not only key for good overall health but also for keeping your complexion supple, healthy and glowing. Make sure to drink at least 2 litres per day and try to avoid too many caffeinated drinks. We also recommend starting the day with a cup of hot water & lemon to help alkalise the body and neutralise acids caused by alcohol and unhealthy food.
