A naturopath once told me, you don’t need vitamins and supplements if you have a well-rounded diet. I make sure most of my meals are nutritionally dense and full of colour. I eat a mainly vegetarian diet and include a lot of pulses for protein. The cold weather is great for whipping up vegetable soups with warming spices. I also add lemon to everything. Lemon is my beauty secret; it supports the liver which is so important for the body.
Cooking with coconut oil There’s nothing more satisfying that a baked sweet potato chip cooked in coconut oil. They are aromatic and low-GI. Put your feet in the ocean. The negative ions balance out the body at the end of a stressful day.
If you suffer from broken capillaries or rosacea you need to avoid inflammation. No Bikram yoga and avoid too much alcohol and spicy food
All you need are a few gym bag essentials…
1 Mineral powder. It can be applied in seconds without a mirror and won’t clog pores.
2 Eye liquid buds. They remove liner smudges under the eyes in no time!
3 Coral lipstick. You may still have a pink glow from your workout so a coral tone offers a nice, fresh contrast.
4 Volumising dust and dry shampoo. These are must-haves. The trick to using one is allowing a couple of minutes for the powder to soak up excess oil or sweat. Once this is done, simply brush it out for a freshly washed look.
