The New You

The start of a new year calls for a fresh perspective, and commitment to a new and improved you. January is the perfect time to embark upon a year of change from the inside out. Detox, soothe and recharge with these three easy steps.

Words by Yvonne Hou

Deep Cleansing Masks

Recover from the late nights of the festive party season by indulging your skin with a deep cleansing mask. It’s the fastest route to reenergised and brightened skin as it draws out impurities, leaving your face clear and balanced. Use a clay-based deep-cleansing mask twice a week to prevent unwanted spots from forming and, as skin texture improves, alternate it with a rich, hydrating mask to reap maximum benefits.

The Antioxidant Diet

After all the indulgence of the holiday season, make it your New Year’s resolution to cleanse and refuel your body with plenty of skin-strengthening antioxidant nutrients. Green vegetables and colourful berries are detoxifying dreams; vitamin B protects and cleanses your liver, while reducing inflammation. If you are to stick to one resolution this year make it a commitment to hydrate from the inside out. Start your day with hot water with a slice of lemon. Opt for green and white tea throughout the day and your skin will thank you for it.
