hello sunshine!

It’s been truly uplifting to fill this beautiful edition with so many good things, from summer skin bronzers for a more radiant glow, to a focus on ferulic acid for smoothly gleaming skin, as well as simple treats for hands and feet to make at home. I was so interested to read the backstory of Rosie Khandwala, the Tanzanian ‘olderpreneur’ who brought her 30+ years of wisdom and experience to create a popular beauty brand later in life. And speaking of ageing well, do read up on walking for wellbeing, as well as a closer look at collagen for internal age protection as well as for more youthfullooking skin. We take some time to rethink mental wellness with advice on emotional intelligence from Dr Sophie Mort as she explores the purpose of…

top tomato

Those who eat plenty of tomatoes have been shown to have a 50% lower risk of death from cancer. Rich in lycopene, the red-coloured antioxidant carotenoid may also reduce the risk of pancreatic, lung and ovarian cancer in premenopausal women, and reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men. Tomato sauce was found to be the most protective compared to less concentrated fresh tomatoes, pizza toppings or tomato juice. A 4mg twice-daily lycopene supplement was also shown to help prevent precancerous cells in the prostate turning cancerous, if taken for a year, as well as reducing the size and severity of other forms of cancer lesions. A cup of coffee before a workout can increase fat-burning potential by up to 13%.…

think pink

Astaxanthin is a powerfully sunprotective antioxidant that works from the outside in. Trials using supplements of 4mg of astaxanthin daily for nine weeks helped shield unprotected skin against sunburn for up to 1.5 hours, as well as improve skin roughness and texture. Made by a specific green algae, some seafood also contains astaxanthin (where creatures primarily feed on this algae). Pacific salmon is bright pink due to its higher astaxanthin content, ditto lobsters and shrimp. Flamingos’ famously pink plumage is also due to their diet high in astaxanthin-rich algae.…

perfect parsley

Sacred to the Ancient Greeks, parsley leaves have been gracing our tables for thousands of years. Today, we most commonly use this fragrant herb to add flavour to a variety of dishes, but it was originally used more often as a treatment for ailments as diverse as toothaches and hangovers. Though we’re more likely to rely on modern medicine for these conditions today, this easy-to-grow herb still has plenty of health and wellbeing benefits to offer. SIGHT SAVER Not only are the bright, verdant leaves easy on the eye, they’re good for them too. Parsley is rich in carotenoids, such as lutein, beta carotene and zeaxanthin, which are all plant compounds that can protect our eyes and promote healthy vision. Carotenoids have even been shown to help absorb blue light (from electronic…

Let’s talk bronzer! It’s a makeup essential that I use on both myself and my clients all year round (not just in the summer), as it helps to add warmth and dimension to the face. Base products, such as foundations, do such a great job of evening out skin tone that they can sometimes leave us looking a little flat. Some well-applied bronzer can enhance features and bone structure in a way that needn’t look like we’ve just been on a sunny holiday – unless that’s the look we’d like, of course. Used strategically, bronzer can help to contour the face and change its shape and appearance. I’ve always believed that we’re all naturally gorgeous without makeup wizardry but, in the same breath, I do love to define my cheekbones and…
