New Year is a great time to do a little gentle, natural, life detoxing and change up a few habits for a healthier you….nothing perfect just imperfectly natural! Here are a few simple ideas that can make all the difference to how you look and feel in 2020!

Detox Your Skin, Hair & Body

Using simple natural ingredients means you stay away from chemicals which will give your skin the break it needs. There’s a link between chemicals in skincare to skin irritations and asthma and when you go natural you will often notice the difference instantly.

‘Doing it yourself’ with a few things from your kitchen is cheap and effective and your skin will thank you for it! Try this very quick homemade mask for an instant boost.

Fruity Cooling and Repairing Mask

  • Half an avocado
  • Half a banana
  • Half an apple
  • A few drops of lemon juice
  • A little thick natural yoghurt to blend

This one works well if all ingredients are blended in a blender. Pat mixture onto skin, leave a few minutes and then rinse off. Pineapple is full of natural enzymes and a great fruit to add to a Face Mask for extra refreshing zing.

If you want to go down the ready-made route then choose these great natural skin and haircare options:

Declutter

 

An organised space helps create an organised mind…or something like that! New Year is a great time to have a de-clutter. Recycle all those things you don’t need at the local charity shop and re-use those that you can.

lemons

 

Swap those nasty chemical cleaners for natural options, just a few simple regular ingredients are perfect household cleaners and a much healthier option to detoxify from nasty toxic chemicals.

Glycerine mixed 50:50 with water is a great stain remover for old tannin stains: tea, coffee, fruit juice etc. Work it in and leave it for 30 minutes before laundering as normal.

Don’t throw away a lemon after you have made a salad dressing or squeezed over fish, you can clean a ceramic sink with half a lemon and it will make it shine beautifully. Add a bit of lemon peel to the cutlery container in the dishwasher – it will help shine the cutlery.

Vinegar will help prevent limescale around taps, in the loo, and can be mixed with lemon and water to clean surfaces and floors and to de-scale kettles.

Remove pet hair from fabric or upholstery with a rubber glove. Put it on one hand and stroke the hair off – it comes off instantly!
