Hey Beauties ! Today I want to share and talk about trying Skinnymint detoxing tea. Now that its summer and we all want to get fit and flaunt our summer tanned sexy bodies! As well as, have clear flawless looking skin with as minimum makeup as possible! Haha, natural look is always effortless yet beyond GORGEOUS ;). Alright, let’s get into it, shall we…
What is the Skinnymint 28 Day Teatox?The 28 day teatox consists of drinking two varieties of tea – one ‘Morning Boost’ which is drank each morning to give you a bit of pep and energy. ‘Night Cleanse’ is drank last thing in the evening every second night, to help ‘flush out toxins’ and remedy bloating and constipation. You receive 28 morning tea bags and 14 night time tea bags.
The aim of ‘teatoxing’ is to ‘help boost your metabolism, flush out toxins, reduce bloating and burn fat’. The teas are drank alongside whatever you usually eat, and can simply replace your usual morning and evening drinks.Morning Boost is primarily a green tea blend, with over half the contents of each teabag being green tea leaves. Green tea is a well known aid when it comes to weight loss, helping to boost the metabolism and burn fat more efficiently.
Night Cleanse is a senna tea, supported by a host of other ingredients which boost senna’s main property as a laxative. Following from senna we have ginger root. Skinnymint were quite clever in including this guy, as ginger will help in soothing the digestive tracts after senna has done its thing by irritating them. Gingers soothing properties has actually made it quite popular with those who suffer with irritable bowel syndrome!Peppermint leaf is a genuine wonder ingredient and peppermint tea is something I’ve actually drank for years. It’s brilliant for stomach aches and cramps. Peppermint is also a great aid in stopping bloating, as it helps you rid excess gas (yup, burping and farting – better out than in) which can make your stomach appear flatter.
Licorice root and psyllium husk are both included in the mix, licorice for its ability to soothe the stomach no doubt, and psyllium for its fiber and colon cleansing power. We also have hawthorn berry thrown in, which helps with anxiety, insomnia and mood-swings.
How do they taste?I have heard that ‘Morning Blend’ tastes like fruity green tea, as you might expect! The trick is NOT to brew it in boiling water, as that creates the nasty bitter taste I’m sure more than a handful of us associate with green tea.’Night Cleanse’ is pretty darn gingery, which makes it taste very warming and soothing. Ginger is the only flavour you get from this, then again, it is the strongest spice so it’s to be expected. If either tea isn’t to your taste, you can always add lemon or other citrus fruit, mint, herbs, cinnamon or honey to the blend without hindering their diuretic/ laxative properties. They can also be prepared in advance, kept in the fridge and served with ice.I will surely do an updated post on how well it works after trying it!! So stay tuned for that! 🙂
