BRAIN & BODY BOOST Researchers at Grand Valley State University, Michigan, have found that a high-fat, low-sugar, keto-style diet, combined with high-intensity exercise, can significantly improve BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) function, a gene that controls the nerve cells responsible for body weight, as well as brain plasticity (linked to dementia). One study concluded that combining a keto diet with high-intensity exercise has overlapping brain benefits, making it effective for weight loss and brain health. Cheers!

dazzling dandelions

Also known as Taraxacum officinale, the dandelion is a member of the chicory family. Its better-known name was coined by a 15th-century surgeon who noticed that the jagged leaves resemble a lion’s teeth (dents de lion). Dandelions are perhaps better known, however, for their sunshine-yellow flowers that burst into bloom in spring and linger until the end of summer, when they’re replaced by a puffball of soft seed heads. Legend has it that any wish cast while blowing the seeds into the breeze will be granted. If you’re looking to improve your health and wellbeing, however, adding dandelions to your diet might prove a more effective course of action. WATERWORKS A natural diuretic, dandelion tea has long been recommended by herbalists as a remedy for water retention and cellulite. Indeed, the French…

Here’s how I get it done on days when I’m pushed for time… 5 MINUTE MAKEUP Minute 1 I like to use a little bit of the CeraVe Facial Moisturising Lotion to quickly prepare skin for makeup. It’s in a convenient tube with a pump (no faffing with lids!) and glides over the skin easily. It’s also lightweight and absorbs really quickly, so there’s no need to wait before applying your base. When I’m in a rush I like to use a foundation with a high SPF, and…
