Supermodels—they’re just like us! That is, if they binge on countless helpings of panettone and drink copious amounts of spiked cider to endure the holidays with politically vocal relatives. No matter how egregious our festive transgressions, we can all use a cleansing ritual to help us refresh. Models Shanina Shaik and Rachel Hilbert are experts on wellness detoxing—these ladies have gone through the vigorous process of prepping for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (which is no easy feat). In the spirit of the new year, Shanina and Rachel share with us their go-to recipes for getting back on track. So congratulations on making it through December unscathed—now it’s time to detox like you’re training for the catwalk.
