Ditch the Dimples: Top 3 Foods that Fight Cellulite

I’m often asked about quick fix cellulite gels, creams and oils. Every year around this time, I’m inundated with products and press releases claiming to be the latest wonder cure for orange peel skin. But in all honesty, it’s just not that easy.
I don’t believe that there’s a topical product out there that can get rid of the dimpled areas we dread so much.

The Melted Chocolate Mask for Hair

If you ask me, never was there a food more perfect than chocolate. Chocolate doesn’t ask questions, chocolate understands. While it may rank highly on my personal list of priorities in life (chocolate, family, job- in that order), the sweet stuff has always had somewhat of a bad reputation as the main cause of flabby thighs and volatile acne breakouts. But contrary to this, recent research has shown that the health benefits of high quality chocolate far outweigh the negatives.

Stretch it Out: Swing Yoga

Juice cleanses, macro-biotic diets and torturous exercise routines have never been on my list of “must-do’s” in life. And while I love to stay fit with weights, cardio training and indoor cycling, when it comes to things like yoga I’ve always had other proverbial fish to fry. I love the deep stretches and pushing my body out of its comfort zone, but the soothing tones of the instructor and slow, flowing movements usually have me struggling to stay awake within the first ten minutes.

Blooming Beautiful: Model Tips for a Gorgeous Pregnancy

Pregnancy can bring on a flood of conflicting emotions. It certainly did for me. On the one hand I was overjoyed at the prospect of the new life growing inside me; on the other hand I was struggling with my blotchy skin, puffy face and impending stretch marks. I’d love to say that I revelled in the joys of “pregnancy glow” but I’ll be honest- I was just oily.

Finding a suitable beauty regime can be a challenge, as of course, what you put on or in your body can have effects on your baby’s wellbeing.

Shine on: The Best Foods for Radiant Skin

Serums, creams and lotions are essential to looking younger for longer. But when it comes to taking care of your skin from the inside, I’m a firm believer in the age old adage “you are what you eat”. Whilst water is key to keeping skin clear, fresh and hydrated, more and more, studies are finding that certain nutrients in foods play a role in maintaining younger more radiant-looking skin.
