|8 Out Of 10 Mums Say|
If you're a new mum or are pregnant, then the chances are you won't have exactly been downing the vodka shots and partying until dawn during the festive season.
So you won't need to indulge in the delights of the dreaded inner-body-liver-detox.
But as it's January - traditional detox season - I wouldn't want to leave you out. So, now is as good a time as any to take a look at your skincare regime to see how it could do with a little cleaning up.
There's lots you can do for your skin from the inside out. Try to incorporate plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, juice, water and pregnancy-safe herbal teas into your diet to give your skin a healthy glow.
Investing in a good quality natural facial scrub is a good idea too. By getting rid of the dead skin cells that clog the surface of your skin, you're not only giving your complexion a deep-cleanse, but it will also mean that the nourishing moisturisers you use on your skin afterwards can more easily be absorbed.
Now that your skin is squeaky clean of debris (and chemicals) why not try a completely new moisturiser? You may already know that using the same shampoo over and over again means it becomes less effective on your hair, well some experts say that the same can be true of our skin creams. So a change is as good as a rest.
I love Korres Watercress Moisturiser, £19.00 from www.BathandUnwind.com. It's a rich, buttery cream containing superfood watercress extracts, thought to help rid the body of toxins and help balance skin lipids, encouraging your skin to hold on to moisture more effectively.
Of course, if scrubbing your way to a detox sounds too much like hard work, you could always just lie back and relax in a bath. Tisserand's Detox Bath Oil, £8.10 (www.tisserand.com) blends organic essential oils (including lemongrass, rosemary and ginger) to stimulate a sluggish circulation, which encourages the elimination of toxins. Now how easy was that,.?
