The Christmas season is not the easiest time to stay healthy. With endless parties, meals out and social gatherings how can you make sure you look your best? Look no further, try these juices for a pre-Christmas detox, to give you radiant skin, shining hair and more energy. Popular with models such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and celebrities from Jennifer Aniston to Gwyneth Paltrow, juicing is the way to go. The best part is they are so easy; all you need is a few ingredients and a juicer, and – voilà – a delicious healthy treat. With the added bonus of vitamins and minerals for defence, you can avoid the December burn-out and lessen the effects of that inevitable Christmas cold.

So replace each of your meals with one of these juices for two days to feel and look amazing at your Christmas party.
