We bet most of you reading this article are hungover from a full night of New Year’s Eve action. Here are a few suggestions to help you detox in 2016.
Are Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat and Tinder taking up too much of your time? Lots of people are talking about going on a digital detox, but few actually go through with it. According to Mashable, a psychologist by the name of Dr. Yvonne Thomas explained, “”You can be so preoccupied with your digital devices that it’s all too easy to inadvertently sacrifice time, relationships, sleep, focus, productivity and balance in your life. Many people are not even aware of the toll their extensive usage of digital devices costs them until they have suffered a loss or upset because of this.”

If you’re not feeling so well on New Year’s Day, chances are that your skin isn’t doing any better, so go to Sephora and pick up Belif’s First Aid Anti-Hangover Soothing Mask. It calms stressed out and irritated skin with soothing herbs, as well as Chamomile and Xylitol to give your skin a healthy glow for 2016.
