How To Get Healthy This March

How To Get Healthy This March

Your March health guide.


TRAILBLAZING

Finding athletic gear that makes us feel powerful while not on full display – or sporting garish patterns – can be as challenging as a downward dog. H&M’s Sports collection, thankfully, is inspiring us to embrace a new workout look (and vowing to head for the steep hills this spring). Top, €12.99; shorts, €14.99 at stores nationwide, hm.com.

TREATMENTS WITH KINDNESS

We love the mission behind Skinfull Affairs – the latest beauty spot to land on Dublin’s Exchequer Street. The sleek new flagship offers eco-friendly beauty junkies conscientious yet indulgent therapy treatments with a focus on health and wellbeing. Looking for products that are vegan, cruelty-free, organic, biodegradable or simply free from nasties? Then this is the place, skinfullaffairs.ie.

LITTLE WONDERS

Apple’s AirPods, €179, may be ingenious, but we’re so afraid we’ll lose them, we cannot thoroughly enjoy their many powers. That’s why we’re keeping a close eye on them until the company releases the iOS 10.3, where the Find My iPhone app promises to include a Find My AirPods feature to help you locate your lost wireless earbud. Hurry, please.

?IT’S EASY BEING GREEN

While the jury may ?be out on whether juice cleanses actually work, we think there’s no harm in kickstarting spring with an energy reboot. Green Beard’s one-day and three-day cleanses?(?30 and €85) are handy ways to give this method a try (you can even order via Deliveroo). greenbeards.ie?

A NEW LEAF

Herbal teas are lauded for their health benefits, but choosing one that will actually boost your wellbeing can be tricky. Cleanse, Nurture, Restore with Herbal Tea by Sebastian Pole, co-founder of Pukka Herbs, aims to educate the layperson on the many herbs available and their benefits, with 70 recipes for special brews to suit your needs (Frances Lincoln, approx €23). For an instant cuppa, try these.

March

Voya organic teas boast the benefits of seaweed and taste amazing. Try Peppermint Pleasure to aid digestion; Camomile Calm before bed; and Fennel Fusion to detoxify, €11.50 each.
