It’s lunchtime and you’ve ordered more than you need, so you scarf down all the food to prevent any wastage and now you’re experiencing a “food coma”. Or, you often satisfy your cravings and find it hard to control what you eat and end up triggering acne breakouts.

Perhaps it’s the weekend or a special occasion and you’re celebrating at a buffet and you feel slightly guilty about overeating just to get your money’s worth. Any of these situations sound familiar?

We all know that we are what we eat, and it shows on our skin, moods, and body, but is there anything more we can do other than solely sticking to intense workouts and diet plans?

A trend that you should definitely jump on (if you haven’t already) is a good ‘ol body detox, which can serve as an amazing “health-boosting tool” too.

When done right, detoxing can do wonders for your body by giving you more energy, boosting your immune system, and even preventing illnesses. And it’s also how some celebrities and TikTokers achieve clear, glowing skin effortlessly!

Why detox?

Detoxing has become such a world phenomenon that there’s a whole sector in the health industry catered to developing new products to satiate our toxin-clearing needs.

A detox, also known as detoxification or body cleanse, usually includes following a special diet or using certain products to get rid of body toxins, which can range from pollutants and heavy metals to synthetic chemicals and processed foods.

These toxins can cause negative effects on our health and lead to concerning illnesses like cancer, dementia, and heart disease.

The good news is that our bodies detoxify themselves naturally. However, the bad news is that if you don’t pace yourself or listen to what your body needs, your detox systems may be overworked and start falling apart.

Here’s where all the detox drinks or tips come into play to help clear out all the excess or toxin build-up from your body.

Just like how machines need a little oil or lubricant to get their gears turning seamlessly, our bodies also require some help once in a while to work in their optimal state.

Better yet, following a detox routine can really help with acne and lend you clearer, smoother skin too!

Ageing typically incites unfavourable symptoms that can be fixed by a simple detox, but it’s never too early or late to start on your detox journey especially if you’ve been leading a strenuous or fast-paced life.

Some of the most common tell-tale signs that your body needs a detox:

  • Acne breakouts, blemishes, and skin allergies
  • Body weight oscillation
  • Frequent indigestion that leads to weight gain, abdominal discomfort, and bloating (especially in women)
  • Irregular or painful periods
  • Bad breath, body odour, and sweating in excess
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Insomnia or constant fatigue, even after hours of sleep
  • Poor memory and concentration
  • Frequent and unexplainable mood swings, anxiety, and depression
  • Amplified cravings for carbohydrates and salty, processed foods or a lack of appetite

The easiest and best way to start detoxing is by clearing out your digestive system. However, before you start anything you can’t finish, be sure to consult a professional or reach out to your doctor to ensure it’s safe for you and to rule out any severe health issues that can’t be treated with a detox.

Drinking ginger shots

Skip the alcohol and ditch the elaborate, expensive juice cleanses! Known as immunity-boosting shots or an elixir of sorts, this popular detox method currently has over 105 million views on TikTok and is also well-loved for how easy it is to DIY at home.

This powerful drink boasts many potent anti-inflammatory compounds and a variety of antioxidants to battle free radicals. It’s also an amazing wellness support to keeping your immune system healthy while soothing nausea and everyday bouts of digestive distress.

Studies have shown that ginger can improve digestion, decrease bloating, boost weight loss, reduce intestinal cramping, and give a balanced metabolism.

Ginger shots may be loaded with numerous health benefits, but one thing to note is the sugar content when you’re buying or making them. You don’t want to be inadvertently causing more health issues or weight gain with higher levels of sugar consumed!

One alternative to sugar is to use organic honey or mix your ginger shots with sweeter fruits to balance out the spiciness.

Trying TikTok’s ‘Internal Shower’ drink


A shower for your body, but from the inside out 🍋Tip: If you’re not used to getting a lot of fiber use one tbsp of chia seeds🤍 #internalshower #chiaseedwater #chiaseeds #healthyrecipes #skinfood #skincarehack Disclaimer: no medical advice.

Turns out chia seeds aren’t just great in acai, yoghurts, and puddings. TikTok has also whipped up another detox drink with this superfood that claims to give you a flatter tummy and better bowel movement, nicknamed the ‘internal shower drink’.

This DIY concoction includes 250 to 300ml of warm water, the juice of half a lemon, and two tablespoons of chia seeds. Some TikTokers recommend taking this drink in the mornings before your cuppa.

After leaving the chia seeds in the mixture for a few minutes, they’ll soak up water and take on a gel-like consistency which adds bulk and weight to your stools, working to soften them and help the stool pass easily.

Full of fibre, chia seeds are also vital for gut health and are packed with protein to keep your skin, bones, and muscles in tip-top condition. They’re also rich in antioxidants to protect your body against damaging free radicals.

However, chia seeds are mostly insoluble fibre and can have a laxative effect, so it’s crucial to keep hydrated or stay away from it if you have inflammatory bowel disease.

Before embarking on your detox journey, it’s important to manage your expectations as these are natural ways to help in achieving a healthier body and state of mind, not to drastically change your appearance.

Remember, all of our bodies are different and beautiful — it’s taken us through all our life’s experiences and look exactly the way it should.

Say goodbye to your inner critic and pledge to be kinder to yourself and your body!
