Beauty & Wellness
We’re of the mind that what you put on your body should be held to the same high standards as what you put in it. (We even wrote a book on the topic.) While there’s no wrong time to kick conventionally toxic products out of your shower and load up on self-care sessions that power your body’s built-in detox systems, January is an especially good place to start if you’re following along with our beginning-of-the-year food plan. Here, everything your body needs to really go clean (i.e. all-star, everyday skin care essentials), along with some ideas for upping your detox game (metaphysical colonic, anyone?).
1: Supercharge Your Detox
