So maybe we had one or two pieces of pie at our holiday dinner. And what’s a New Year’s Eve celebration without a midnight champagne toast (or two or three) ? So once January 1st (fine, January 2nd) came along, we wanted to detox...
Enter Dirty Lemon.
It’s all about “staying real” and enjoying ourselves - no meal plans, cheat days or 14-day fads. We also love a direct and simple philosophy to juicing, particularly when it’s all natural and comes in chic, streamlined packaging. The one week detox features cold pressed lemon juice to cleanse the system and alkalize the body, as well as activated charcoal that absorbs thousands of times its own volume in toxins. Ginger and dandelion root aid the body’s natural digestive process, while the daily formula is designed to help to calm the stomach, flush out the kidneys and trap impurities before they can be absorbed by the body. (On a side note, we even find that it helps with bloating and other PMS-related issues, which is a major bonus.)
The brand added a special Skin + Hair formula, featuring collagen peptides, as well as, a Sleep variation of Magnesium and rose water, among other calming agents. There’s even an energy drink with adaptogenic herbs to keep you going. But the best part is that food isn’t off the menu. Dirty Lemon isn’t a cleanse, but a simple way to add some cleansing properties into the diet and reset our bodies. Not to mention, it has the simplest reordering process on earth. All you have to do is text the number when you’re ready for another round - day or late night.
Now, onto the next resolution.
