This easy to make hot drink will help to give your liver a kickstart every morning. Repeat the recipe every day throughout this detox for the best results.

Did you know that beauty products have expiry dates?
Eeek! We bet you're thinking about that lipstick you've owned since prom.
And it's not only makeup that loses its magic, but skincare can also turn toxic, which is not so great for your skin.
Today, check the expiry dates on your products and dispose of any that are well past their use-by date.
Every product should have a little symbol on it indicating how long it will last once opened. If you find a symbol that says 6m, that means the product should've been used within six months of opening. Likewise, if it says 24m, it should've been used within two years, and so on and so forth.
Facialist Sarah Chapman says: “An expiry date ensures that you are always using your products when they are at their freshest and most potent. Products will degrade at different rates depending on how its packaged, for example, light and air sensitive potent active ingredients should be packaged in airless pumps.”
If you'd like to recycle your beauty containers and packaging rather than throwing them in the bin, you should take a look at Garnier's new recycling initiative in partner with Terracycle. There are various drop-off locations or you can download a free UPS label and arrange a pick-up. It's a quick and easy way to do your bit for the environment.
