Get Christmas Ready

We'll soon be mainlining Terry's Chocolate Orange and having more late nights than hot dinners, so get ready for the festive season with these fab little health and body pick-me-ups.

Christmas is coming and I don’t know about you but I always need a pre-festive detox as much as I need a post one.

With presents to buy, food to organise and more social occasions than I have dresses to wear (always good for an excuse to buy more, I guess!) getting myself into fighting-fit condition for the festive season is imperative if I want to survive… err, enjoy the season.

So, with that in mind, we’ve worked with Hampshire based Seaweed Limited to pull together some of our top picks for things that will get you in tip-top Christmas Cracker condition. AND two lucky readers can win all of them – worth over £100 – scroll down to find out more.

KIKI Health – Activated Charcoal Vegicaps

charcoal FBActivated charcoal is one of those things that I think is a great idea until I actually have to ingest it, however, its properties are hard to argue with. As well as being a natural teeth whitener and absorbing toxins in the skin, it’s apparently rather good for gut health and can help with the whole post-sprouts situation. These vegicaps from Kiki Health are veggie, made from 100% coconut AND in capsule form meaning they are odourless and tasteless. Apparently they are brilliant for a hangover too…*goes off to purchase an entire case* £12 for 50 

Organic Pharmacy Skin Brush

skin brush organic pharmacy

Central heating and too many layers means that our skin takes a bit of a nosedive in the cooler months. Simple but effective, brushing your skin will help increase your circulation, help the lymph nodes and get rid of dead skin cells to improve the skin’s appearance and get you feeling all brushed up and ready to go. £7.96

Ila Body Oil for Vital Energy

ILA body oil

You might recognise the brand Ila as Megan and Harry popped to the flagship shop Ilapothecary in Notting Hill before the birth of baby Archie. Famed for its wellbeing products and oils we especially love the Ila Body Oil for Vital Energy. This super moisturising body oil claims to put a bit of a spring in your step with its extracts of wild-crafted Juniper Berry, Rose Geranium and Rosehip Seed Oil. Add to that it smells amazing and it’ll potentially help you feel prepared for anything that life throws at you that day.  £48

Solaris Lemon Detox Teabags

Lemon_Detox_Pyramid_1Nothing is more restorative than tea. Bad day? Put the kettle on. Good day? Put the kettle on. But to add a little more of a boost into your day, how about switching out the PG Tips for a bag of lemon tea instead? Lemongrass along with nettle and fennel, in a bio-degradable silk teabag (oooh, fancy) will help clear your body out a bit and as its naturally caffeine-free, you won’t be up all night if you drink five cups either. £4.95 for 15 teabags

Wild Nutrition – Ashwagandha Plus

Wild Organics

While I can’t actually pronounce it ashwagandha is tipped as the supplement to take if you’re a busy person and prone to burn out. Sometimes known as Indian Ginseng it has been linked to helping with depression and can give off all sorts of zen effects. If it means I can skip a meditation session to get those presents wrapped, I’m game. £19.50 for 60 capsules

 

Ancient +Brave -True Collagen Wraps

AncientBravewrapsCollagen has been a bit of a buzzword in the wellbeing industry for a while now and is apparently good for promoting skin anti-ageing and benefiting the joints. Ancient + Brave, apart from having the most awesome packaging, contains only grass-fed bovine collagen and is totally tasteless and odourless. £16 for 14 sachets

ANDDDDD, if that’s not enough we are giving away two hampers full of these goodies in conjunction with Seaweed Ltd. Head over to our Reader Treat to enter now and get ready for Christmas.
