The Hello Day Autumn seasonal box seeks to combat this with a selection of supplements, including a Digestion Detox to help prepare for a heavier winter diet, a Vitality Balance to elevate moods, an Immunity Shield to protect against coughs and colds and a Beauty Boost to nourish your skin, hair and nails against the harsher weather. hello-day.com
