THE ULTIMATE BIKINI CLEANSE

With your summer getaway just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to embark on a detoxifying juice cleanse. And this little three-day saviour from our friends over at Raw Press is glow-guaranteed.

The health-boosting juices and nutritious meals below are designed to have you looking and feeling in tip-top condition. Snack on plenty of whole fruits and raw veggies in between meals, drink as much H20 as you can and skip along to a few Pilates classes the week of the cleanse.

Sun lounger, we’re coming for you.
