Natural, organic and free of nasties these products and treatments are guilt-free indulgences to kick-start your journey to a healthier you.
Enter the pros: Clare Neill co-founder of Radiance Cleanse, Denise Leicester founder of Ila Products and Imelda Burke the founder of Being Content.
Clare Neill is the go-to expert for detoxing tips; ‘I swear by dry-skin body brushing to get your lymphatic system going. It’s crucial as it helps to remove toxins, speed up the renewal process and boost your immune system’. Great to get a sluggish system moving after the New Year splurge.
Denise Leicester swears by using ‘zinc based make-up with micronized minerals, which have soothing qualities for sensitive skin and are free from chemicals that cause inflammation and irritation. Go mineral and improve the health of your skin. It’s simple’.
Don’t be scared off by this powder foundation by BareMinerals, when you buff it on to the skin it changes consistency for a dewy finish. (So natural you can sleep in it!)
Imelda urges you to use organic skincare where possible when detoxing. ELLE loves Green People products; they’re 93.77% organic, free from all chemicals and gentle for even the most sensitive skin. The natural fatty acids plump and smooth skin without a scary scientific word in sight.

Oil of Jojoba J & J Jojoba
‘Few ingredients as possible and get back to basics when you’re doing a juice cleanse’ suggests Imelda Burke. Why not try ‘pure jojoba oil and coconut oil which are both naturally occurring cleansers and moisturisers’.
Get yourself booked in for an organic facial. Imelda Burke recommends Dr Alakitis Skin Food Facial which ‘uses powdered fruit and vegetable masks made from organic food ingredients mixed with organic honey to give the skin an extra moisture boost’.
