This time of year, the chances are high that your body has had some sort of sugar and carb overhaul from your holiday tradition of choice. It's hard to pick just one poison - that third slice of pie? Or piece of candy? Or how about that cup of nog? It's all the same to your body, and your hormones, sleep, energy levels, and habits are likely to be all kerfuffled. Whether it's post-turkey, tofurkey, holiday ham, or roast beast, it's probably time to take things down a notch and get back to your healthy roots. Here are the best ways to detox after too much indulgence this holiday season without breaking a sweat.

If you're curious about this new game-changing super oil then stay tuned, because according to what I learned, it's more than a passing beauty/health trend.

In light of these changes, here's why facial toner is actually good for your skin, and why you should consider adding it to your regimen.
