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”.

Banishing Skincare Problems With Bananas

Bananas are a popular healthy addition to any diet and a great choice of post-workout fuel to replenish the body and give you a much needed energy boost. In fact, they’re my absolute most favourite fruit in every form- banana ice cream, banana pudding, muffins, pie- you name it. But who knew the humble banana could also offer so many beauty benefits. Rich in amino acids and antioxidants, everybody’s favourite yellow snack is also a great source of beauty boosting vitamins A, B and C and minerals such as potassium and zinc which can also help to keep skin in top form.

But when it comes to these four less-than-visible areas of our bodies, it’s more a case of out of sight, out of mind.
