For lots of us, January represents a new start, and a time to regroup after the often excessive festive season. It’s a period for making changes and overhauling elements of our lives that we might be unhappy with, and this sometimes involves reinvigorating our bodies with healthier food or exercise, so that a newly-centred mind can follow.
At Glasshouse, we’re very much of the mind that any sort of detox should serve the entire body holistically - this is the option offered by Teatox, a German brand with a completely organic range of tea detox products with benefits ranging from supporting skin’s regenerative processes to boosting the immune system. And what could be easier than simply replacing your daily cups of tea or coffee with something equally as refreshing, but just a little bit better for you?
Amongst our favourite products in the range are the Skinny Teatox treatment teas, and the Pure Beauty tea, both of which you can find on Glasshouse Shop. Skinny Teatox is a 14 day plan with a morning and evening component, designed to aid weight loss. The morning blend is an energising mix featuring green tea sencha, lemongrass and goji berries, whilst the evening tea contains gentle elderflower and hibiscus, as well as peppermint to encourage healthy digestion. Helpfully, both teas were specially formulated using the suggestions and advice of nutritionists, alternative practitioners and tea experts in order to guarantee positive lasting effects.
Pure Beauty incorporates citrus flavours and ginger, and is intended to assist the natural rejuvenation of the skin cells due to the combination of white tea with olive leaves, essentially working from the inside-out. It also supports natural purging, ensuring that you’re rid of any nasty toxins that could potentially be bringing you down. Other teas in the range include the caffeinated Energy Matcha tea, rich in anti-oxidants, Natural Defense, rich in immunity boosting ingredients like echinacea, and Daily Balance, which contributes to everyday wellbeing.
If you’re looking to detox this January, we think a Teatox is the perfect way to supplement it - and so you can try the teas out for yourself, we’ve overhauled our in-salon tea menu to include the full range, so make sure you give it a try during your next appointment!
