Being a Passionista means living life to the fullest: you’d never hold yourself back from relishing in the pleasure of trying a new cuisine or the sweet thrill of indulging in a box of chocolate.
Passionistas are all about living in the moment…but after the holidays, all that indulging can leave you feeling less than your best. But don’t despair: Passionata has the perfect detox regimen that’ll get you back into shape for the new year.
Bye bye, toxins…Hello, sexy attitude!
After all the holiday excess, give your body a little boost to eliminate all those nasty toxins that weaken the immune system. There is nothing less sexy than looking unwell, no? ;)

And don’t forget to drink 1.5 liters of water a day, to allow the liver and kidneys, the filters of our body - to be thoroughly flushed. Come, come, now…no cheating!
