Ask the Diva: Detox Patches
Q. I recently saw an ad for patches that draw toxins out through the soles of your feet while you sleep. Is this just snake oil?
A. Snake oil, pure and simple! They may draw some moisture out of your skin, but that’s about all. So why does the patch turn brown over night? It’s not due to "toxins" that have been drawn out of your body. The patches become discolored when exposed to moisture. It’ll turn the same color if you spray it with distilled water.
