unlock your inner strength

A couple of weeks back, we did a shoot that proved why Kayla Itsines is not only one of the most successful but also one of the most loved trainers in the world. Since she burst onto the scene with BBG, she’s not only built a global fitness empire but a passionately committed community of women now more than 11.8 million strong. But despite hitting the Financial Review Young Rich List in 2018, this new mum of one couldn’t be more down to earth. Just a few examples? Having arrived early to our bayside location, she charmed us all by literally glowing with pride as she shared pics of her gorgeous seven-month-old daughter Arna (happily playing back home in Adelaide). Then, rather than relax and take in the amazing spring…

THE BIG QUESTION Watermelon is a legit natural electrolyte drink: true or false? Answer True! A wedge of summer’s trendiest fruit would go down easy after a tough workout and it’ll do your weary body good. Here’s why: IT’S HYDRATING: “Watermelon is mostly water and carbohydrates, which are two of the most important nutritional factors for fitness recovery,” says sports dietitian Josh Reed. “So it can be quite useful in delivering both fuel [carbohydrates] for energy and glycogen replenishment, as well as hydration.” IT’S BIG ON ANTIOXIDANTS: The juicy fruit’s pink hue is down to lycopene and beta-carotene, nutrients that “can contribute to reducing oxidative damage post-exercise,” Reed notes. It also contains vitamins A and C and the amino acid L-citrulline. Together, they work to wipe out the dreaded DOMS. IT HAS SOME ELECTROLYTES: Watermelon’s…

omg to omega-3

You know this fatty acid is a brain-function hero as well as a warrior against heart disease, but guess what – it’s important for your skin, too. In a study by the UK’s University of Manchester, people who took a 4g dose of omega-3 (equivalent to about 1.5 portions of oily fish) daily enjoyed a boost in their skin’s immunity to sunlight. While it’d never replace sunscreen, researchers concluded it could add to protection against skin cancer. PURPLE REIGN When it comes to looking after blonde hair, you can’t go past a purple-based formula to neutralise brassiness.
