5 Must Have Products For Your Next Detox

When I used to think Detox, I would think of some liquid drink I consumed for a week in hopes I can drop that extra five pounds for whatever event or reason that is coming up. Over the years though, I have learned that being constantly hungry is not good for me, or anyone around me. So now when I detox I don't just detox my body, I detox my skin, body and mind. Not only that, but I have come to terms to always being happy with the way I look because there's nothing I can do to change my body drastically in any short amount of time.

So whether I still wanted to tone up or lose any weight, when it comes time for the detox, I know that no matter how my body changes, I am still happy just the way I am.

Recently I had the opportunity to participate in not only one, but two photoshoots within the same week and after my "detox", I decided to put together a few of my favorite items in hopes that you might find something new to add to your next detox, or basic every day beauty regimen.

1. Will & Grace: This may not be the most obvious choice but when I'm sitting there waiting for my nails or face mask to dry, I like to have something to watch and what better choice than my favorite show of all time? Always gets me in a good mood and makes me laugh. Even if you aren't a die hard fan, choosing something to watch or listen to that puts you in a good mood will automatically boost your happiness.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar: This product alone is magic in a bottle, but when I am bloating or just need to feel refreshed, I make my favorite detox drink with ACV. This isn't something you should drink every day because of the high acidic content. It will detox your body at first, but then your body will get used to the elevated levels of acid and will not produce the same effects. I suggest drinking this before you eat in the morning 2-3 days before your event (or just during the week if you are trying a general detox). Side note: I always buy the Bragg brand product, the only one you should be buying in my opinion. I have found it on ThriveMarket.com - you can thank me later.

Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Drink
1 Glass of Water
2 Tbsp. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Freshly Squeezed Lemon
1 Tsp. Cinnamon
1 Tbsp. Raw Honey

Directions: Blend all ingredients together. If I'm on the go, I use a shaker tumbler to consistently shake up the cinnamon, but if I'm at home, I'll blend in my blender and then drink fairly quickly.

3. Teami Detox Combo: I first came across this tea a few years ago and I don't know how I lived without it. Say what you will about detox teas, but I think different things work for different people, and well, this just works for me. Both the Skinny and Colon Detox teas are meant to work hand in hand for a 30 day detox but I will sometimes span it out to last longer and only use when I really want to detox. The Skinny tea is meant to be drank in the morning before your first meal, and when coupling with the ACV Detox, Do the ACV Detox first, and then this. Then you can go on with your day and then right before bed, drink the Colon Detox Tea. Warning: 1-2 hours after waking up, make sure you have access to a bathroom for a while. (Sorry if TMI, just trying to help a sista out.)

4. Que Bella Face Masks: I found this line at Target and went with the Pomegranate Refreshing mask and I was not disappointed. My skin felt smoother and looked brighter. Will probably add this to my weekly routine!

5. White Crest Whitening Strips: I bought a package a while back for a wedding I was in, and still had tons left over so I whipped those babies out and threw them on for 30 minutes. It was hard not to talk, but I made it through and the results were great.

I hope you enjoyed my detox secrets! What is your go to for detoxing? Anything I should add?
