New Year, New You: Health and Beauty Detox Products for 2016

Doesn't Oprah's commercial for Weight Watchers make you want to sign up, like now, even if you don't need to lose weight?  Yaaaas, Oprah, let's make 2016 the year of our best body ever! We even got all teary-eyed.  That's the power of O.




We've tried Weight Watchers before and it really works.  But before we jump back on the point counting bandwagon to drop the ten pounds we picked up over the holidays, we want to detox from the inside out.  And Everything She Wants recently discovered several health and beauty products that will help create a new you in this new year:




Kick off the new year with Teami 30 Day Detox Pack ($49.99). The detox comes with a 30 day supply of Skinny loose-leaf tea and 15 colon cleanse tea bags.  When followed properly, Teami promises to boost your metabolism, burn stored fat, reduce bloating improve your complexion, and more. Take it from us, the colon cleanse tea bags are extremely effective.

Just like deodorant it's good to switch up your body wash from time to time.  And we love ArtNaturals Anti-Fungal Foot and Body Wash ($14.95). In addition to detoxing your pits, the tea tree-infushed wash helps to get rid of athlete's foot and nail fungus.




Get your essential vitamins on the go with Instavit vitamin sprays ($14.99).  They come in several varieties, including Vitamin D, Immune Strength and Vitamin B-12. No pills. No water. No hassle.

Use Lather Sea Kelp & Ginseng All-Over Mask ($18) all over your body, face and even in your hair. The ginseng and sea kelp extracts draw out impurities while restoring lost moisture, and sea algae oil is added for its natural anti-aging and antioxidant properties.  Aloe vera is another active ingredient that will soothe sunburned skin.

Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask ($56) will save you a lot of money on costly spa facials.  This gel to foam brightening mask contains vitamins C and E, and grape seed extract to revitalize dull skin and give it a radiant, youthful glow. We used the mask before we went to the gym and it really opened our pores. Our skin felt super fresh after our Zumba workout.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Probiotics Do a Body Good: Vitamin Shoppe Tips to Trust Your Gut

You've heard about probiotics.  But what are they and what do they do? We asked the Vitamin Shoppe's on-staff nutritionist Brian Tanzer for the skinny on the benefits of these good bacteria that help keep your gut healthy. Why you need probiotics? I f you eat a lot of processed foods, excess sugar or refined carbohydrates, the bacteria in your digestive tract might have a hard time staying in balance.  And probiotics   inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Tip:   You can find them in  capsule , tablet,  powder  and  chewable  forms. When you should take a probiotic? If you are looking for a probiotic to  take every day, try a multi-strain probiotic starting with 5-10 billion CFU,  and see how it works for you. CFU's, or  colony forming units  are used to measure probiotics potency. CFU’s can range from 1 billion up to 100 billion.  The best time to take a probiotic supplem

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t
