This week on Beauty Bites he lovely Seema tell us how to prepair our bodies for the festive period, I find hard to even have a glass of wine without thinking of how tires I'll be after so found this week's tips pure gold!
Hello my lovely pamper pigs xxx
this holiday period can be very stressful with lots of shopping, socialising and planning for xmas festivities ; make sure you find that balance and don't overload or over-commit yourself and if you are burning the candle on both ends I have got some holistic cures for overdoing it:
Tips for Hangover cures over the festive period
A glass of orange juice with a pinch of cumin powder and a teaspoon of lime juice is a must if you know you are going to over-indulge. Drink a glass of water beforehand containing a teaspoon of sugar, a pinch of salt and half- a-teaspoon of baking soda to help balance acidity levels.
*On the day after the night before, sip diluted live yogurt with a pinch of cumin powder throughout the day. It will help to re hydrate you and counter- act nausea.
* Excess alcohol can also cause puffiness around the eyes, the result of trapped toxins. A gentle massage with a cooling moisturizer can help. First close your eyes, then using your ring finger, begin where the bridge of your nose meets the bony eye sockets. Massage gently in a clockwise direction along the socket at least five or six times. Finish off by placing a slice of cucumber ( put in freezer prior for 5 minutes for a better result) on each eye and rest them for 10 minutes. If its too cold for your eyes you have frozen them, then place cotton pads onto eyes to protect them before applying the slices.
Remember getting a regular massage , especially a hot stone massage over this chilly period will help your well being and relive stress and alleviate anxiety levels , so find a great therapist and treat yourself . Can call me to arrange an appointment too !
