The festival of Diwali just ended and we are back to the boring routine life. No more parties, no more spending fun times with family and friends, and no more delicious sweets. This sudden realization right after the festival is always a spoiler. Of course, we can’t keep having those heavy foods and alcoholic drinks forever. Post-Diwali is the time to correct the diet and detox your body. So here we have the best detox to flush out the toxins from your body and skin.
Detox drinks are very effective, especially after the festivals. It flushes out all the toxins from your body and makes you feel light.
- Lemon, Cucumber And Ginger Drink
Lemon and cucumber have a powerful effect that can alkalize your body, and ginger can flush out all the toxins. Put half an inch grated ginger, half cucumber, and juice of one lemon in a bottle full of water. Refrigerate and keep having it throughout the day.
- Orange, Carrot And Ginger Drink
Oranges are powerhouses of antioxidants and vitamin C. Carrots are loaded with beta-carotene and fibers aiding in weight loss and digestion. Ginger is an age-old home remedy for digestion, bloating, stomach cramps and packed with anti-inflammatory properties. Grind ginger, carrot, and orange and add turmeric and half lemon. Drink this in the early hours of the day.
We often take body detox way too seriously and forget the equally important skin detox. Skin detox is a must after a festival as we apply makeup and other chemical cosmetics to our skin only to look glowing and picture-perfect for festive. Check out these skin detox for natural and glowing skin.
- Choco And Caffeine Mask
Take 1 tsp of ground coffee and add a tsp of cocoa powder and plain yogurt in it. Mix these three ingredients well and apply it on your face. Wash it after 15 minutes and notice the radiance in your skin. Coffee is known for its property to reduce swelling around the eyes while the antioxidants in cocoa powder work against aging. To top it all, yogurt provides intense moisture for visibly glowing skin.
- Banana And Honey Mask
Say goodbye to dry and dull skin with a banana mask. Mash a banana and add 1 tsp of honey and 2 tsp of sour cream in it. Now, mix this and apply the paste on your face. Let it dry for 15 minutes before rinsing it off. This pack will help to restore your skin’s lost moisture.
