Drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day will ensure all the bad stuff gets flushed out of your system. Try adding your favorite fruit to your water to give it a hint of flavor [add bonus: you'll feel fancy].

Coming off the holiday season festivities, and the winter weather, can leave your skin looking splotchy and dry. Moisturize your skin even when you think you don’t need to. To lock in extra moisture, apply your moisturizer while your skin is still damp, fresh out of the shower. Try Volition’s Oceanene Defense Gel, to give your skin an intense boost of rejuvenation coming off the holidays!

One of the best ways to detox your skin is to clean up your diet …yes, it’s true.
Incorporate foods rich in nutrients and vitamins into your diet, with high detoxification properties. Dark leafy greens, apples and ginger are just a few of the potent items you can include in your diet to help restore that natural, healthy glow to your skin. Detoxifying foods will help clear your system, helping you both feel and LOOK your best.
NEW YEAR, NEW YOU!
