News flash: While it’s a good idea to bypass the burger bar most nights, fat is not the enemy! In fact, fat helps keep you full and reduces cravings, so consider adding some back on your plate.
Specifically, you should be enjoying the healthy fats found in foods like avocados, oily fish, nuts and olive oil. As well as helping to lower cholesterol, these foods are natural beauty supplements, giving you smooth, supple and hydrated skin.
Antioxidants help neutralise free radical damage, and have been found to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. They also play an important role in preventing premature aging. Or in other words, keeping those pesky wrinkles at bay!
Green tea is an antioxidant powerhouse worth sipping – it’s said to help support weight loss and brain function, among many other benefits. It’s a key ingredient in SkinnyMint Morning Boost. With a blend of 100% natural ingredients including Yerba Mate, dandelion, and guarana fruit, Morning Boost keeps you energised while you prep your summer bod with your teatox. And it also helps curb cravings with its delicious fruity taste!

The easy way to add more antioxidants and vitamins to your diet? Add some dark leafy greens to your salad, or into your smoothie. Super low in calories but jam-packed with nutrients, foods like spinach, collard greens, arugula, and kale offer a wealth of health benefits. For starters, they contain Vitamins C and K for better immunity, glowing skin, and faster healing.
If you’re hoping to shed some pounds before things really heat up, consider adding some ginger to your diet. A natural appetite suppressant, it’s good for digestion and also helps beat the bloat. And guess what? It’s one of the ingredients in SkinnyMint Night Cleanse, the second step of your 28 Day Ultimate Teatox!
Designed to flush the body out, Night Cleanse contains a blend of soothing and cleansing natural ingredients, with 91% of customers feeling less bloated after completing their SkinnyMint teatox!*
Unlike the beans in your cup of Joe, green coffee beans haven’t been roasted or highly processed. A popular weight loss aid, they’re rich in polyphenols and help to trigger fat burning and stabilise blood sugar levels.
Green coffee bean is the key ingredient in SkinnyMint Power Up Super Fat Burning Gummies. With a yummy espresso flavor, two gummies each morning will help supercharge your fat burning and metabolism, while also boosting your energy. Follow up each afternoon with the Hunger Buster Gummies, formulated with Garcinia Cambogia – an ingredient known to drive weight loss and fat loss.
