The Great Detox

January is a huge month for resets.  For many, the beginning of a new year sparks renewed excitement around previously forgotten commitments or focuses left too long on the proverbial back burner.

While we don’t typically buy into the hype of new year, new me (what’s wrong with the current me?!?), we do love a good detox, especially when it comes to our bodies!

December can be a month of indulgence, which is usually filled with fun, family and memories and maybe a few things we may find ourselves paying for once the new year rolls around.  That’s why we have put together the most important New Year Top 10 list you can find…

The Great Detox Top 10 Detoxifying products for 2023!

1. Bend Beauty GUT GLOW

The first item on our Top 10 list is this brand new launch from Bend Beauty: GUT Glow, and we couldn’t be more excited to offer this amazing product to our guests.  

Healthy skin truly does start from the inside, especially when it comes to gut health.  When we supply the gut with clinically proven fibers, not only does it help us to maintain our normal function, it also starts to restore balance in our gastrointestinal tract. 

How does this impact our skin you ask?

Easily! In fact, your gut microbiomes travel to your skin through your bloodstream, meaning that they can impact your normal skin function and its immune response directly.  Gut Glow’s proprietary blend supports healthy gut function, improves regularity and aids in immune system regulation. 

Gut Glow is a vegan and powderless powder that dissolves easily into your favourite beverage without impacting texture, making it easy to take daily!  This brand new offering from the amazingly effective Bend Beauty family is sure to be a game stopper for anyone that has struggled with any type of gastrointestinal conditions or discomfort and that’s why it is #1 on our top 10 list!

2. Bend Beauty RESET

Second on our list and also from Bend Beauty is their second newest offering, Bend Reset: Liver Detox Support.  Reduced liver function often first appears in our skin.  When we supply our bodies with nutrients to support liver function and health, we promote healthy skin.  We love that Bend RESET uses a source of antioxidants specifically designed to support your liver and help to reduce and protect against free radical stress in your body.

Bend Reset helps to support liver function, which is a key part of the body’s detoxification process.  It is also an excellent source of antioxidants that help to protect against free radicals and it also helps to relieve digestive disturbances, making it a key element to our overall health and wellbeing.

3. Oribe The Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo

Our skin isn’t the only part of our body that can create unwanted build up.  Our hair can also hold on to minerals and oils that create a film-like barrier on the hair, which is why we always recommend using a clarifying shampoo at least once a week, especially if you’re living on a well or are spending a lot of time in the elements.  One of our favourite clarifying shampoos is The Cleanse by Oribe. We love it because it deeply purifies the hair and scalp without stripping the hair of its natural essence and shine.  Oribe uses volcanic ash to power this detoxifying mousse-like shampoo, which effectively polishes away dirt, oil and product build up.  Hair is left feeling restored and renewed.

4. Kevin Murphy Maxi Wash

Our second hair detox favourite is the Maxi Wash Detox Shampoo by Kevin Murphy.  Like most clarifying washes, it removes the build up of unwanted products and chemicals from the hair.  This gentle shampoo helps to purify the hair and scalp, leaving your hair feeling clean and refreshed.  The soothing blend of essential oils brightens the hair  while also purifying and balancing the scalp.  Maxi Wash provides a deep cleansing action without stripping the hair of its natural oils, leaving your hair and scalp feeling clean, clear and restored.

5. Bathorium CRUSH Charcoal Garden Detox

For a full body detoxing, we absolutely love organically activated bamboo charcoal body soak from Bathorium.  CRUSH Charcoal Garden Detox pulls toxins and free radicals front he skin while the spicy oils of basil and calming lavender soothe the mind.  The combination of epsom salts and fresh sea salts is proven to relax aching muscles while coconut milk leaves the skin softened and refreshed.  

Pro tip: For a total bath detoxifying experience, soak for a minimum of 30 minutes with a cold rinse shower immediately following. Slip into a heated bath wrap and drink 8-16 oz purified mineral water to stay hydrated. Repeat weekly.

6. Biologique Recherche Masque VIP O2

Masque VIP O2 is one of our all time favourite masques.  We love that it actually prevents pollutants from reaching the skin cells by neutralizing them on contact, eliminating cellular waste that has built up by the oxidation of fats and proteins in the skin.  It not only offers an expert level of detoxification for the skin, it also contains a moisturizing active ingredient that nourishes skin that is exposed to the atmospheric pollution of urban living.  Masque VIP O2 thoroughly cleanses the skin, leaving your complexion clear and radiant and ready to take on the day!

7. Frize Frize Detoxifying Bentonite Clay Hair Mask

Since Curly and textured hair require a lot of moisture, they can really suffer during the colder winter months.  The Detoxifying Bentonite Clay Hair Mask by Frize Frize brings dull and dry curls back to life using only natural ingredients designed to nourish the hair without drying it out.  Bentonite clay draws toxins from the hair and scalp acting as a natural clarifier for curly and textured hair, leaving your curls feeling soft, shiny and moisturized!

8. Eminence Hungarian Herbal Mud Treatment (masque)

World-renowned due to its detoxifying and purifying tendencies, this Herbal Mud Treatment by Eminence is definitely one of our favourite detoxifying treatments!  Using renewing agents that include cinnamon, ivy, paprika and sage, this amazing mud treatment opens pores, eliminates toxins and increases circulation while fighting off bacteria, infusing Vitamin C, toning, healing and stimulating cell production for clean, clear and absolutely refreshed skin.

9. Eminence Birch Water Purifying Essence

We’ve chatted a lot about cleansers and masques for the skin, but the Birch Water Purifying Essence from Eminence is an integral part of the detoxification process!  This lightweight yet extremely hydrating formula is the ultimate next step after detoxifying cleanse and setting up your skin for maximum absorption and benefit retention from any subsequent products.   Not only will it restore moisture levels in the skin, it also purifies and increases elasticity to improve overall skin barrier function. 

10. Buck Naked Charcoal + Anise Soap

Our final detoxifying product recommendation is the Charcoal + Anise Soap from Buck Naked Soap Company!

Designed to provide a deep clean, the Activated Charcoal absorbs dirt and oil associated with acne and other skin conditions while the Anise Oil provides potent antioxidant protection, helping to protect the skin by neutralizing free radicals, washing them away and leaving skin looking fresh and soft!
