Sometimes we all just need a little detox. Right?
Whether you’re over-working or over-indulging, it’s important to take the time to listen to your body. Detoxing is a great way to give your body and mindset the attention it deserves for a whole day – or more if you can – and reset, leaving you feeling refreshed and refuelled.
Anyone can do a detox day at home. Here, we take a look at our top detox day tips.
Load Up on Water
Hydrating is one of the key things to focus on for your detox day. Make sure you’re ready with a reusable water bottle and keep it with you at all times for continuous sipping. Try to drink at least 3L of water throughout the day.
Drink Hot Lemon and Ginger Tea
As well as water, make sure you have plenty of lemon and ginger in the house and create your own healthy detox tea. If you need something slightly sweeter, just add a touch of natural honey.
Eat Clean (and plant-based)
Plan ahead for your detox day and make sure you eat plant-based organic and natural foods only. This will give your body the nutrients it needs and gives you a break from any less-healthy foods in your regular diet.
Spend Time Dry Body Brushing
Dry body brushing has a plethora of health benefits, from anti-cellulite to lymphatic drainage. Spend 10-15 minutes of your detox day with your dry body brush in hand.

Have a Long Soak
There are so many reasons why taking a long bath is good for the mind, body and soul. From easing aching muscles to destressing and promoting healthy circulation, make sure you add a bath to your detox day to-do list.
Using detox magnesium salts is a great way to make the most of your bath time. Not only do they help with stress, anxiety and sleep, but magnesium salts help with your skin health too – from anti-ageing to anti-inflammation and soothing.
Commit to Skincare
If you’re going to focus on doing your skincare routine right – today is the day. On top of your usual cleanse, tone, serum, oil, moisturise routine, also add in any treatments. From masks to blemish treatments, create a routine that suits your skin type.
Break Out the Beauty Tools
Once you’ve nailed your skincare routine, a detox day is a perfect time to break out your other beauty tools. Whether it’s your rose quartz facial roller, your 8 in 1 cleansing & firming LED + EMS device or your mini face sculpting roller, spend some extra time flushing out any toxins in the body through rolling.
Get Your Sleep
Finish your detox day strong with the best sleep ever. Your long soak in the bath with magnesium salts should help to get you in the right mood for a long, unbroken sleep. Make sure to turn off any technology and put your phone down at least an hour before bedtime.
Reading a book or meditating is the best way to get ready for sleep without the interruption of technology.
These days, it’s more important than ever to prioritise both your physical and mental health. Try your own detox day and see how different it makes you feel.
