you are my sunshine

Living in Singapore means that we get to enjoy summer all year round. While that certainly has its benefits - think #beachlife and cute sundresses - the truth is that we’re also exposed to high levels of ultraviolet (UV) radiation daily.

Active girls will love these bestselling picks from Japan that all come with broadspectrum SPF50+/PA++++ coverage and pocket-friendly prices. • WORK OUT, DON’T BURN OUT The last thing you want to worry about when exercising outdoors is getting sunburnt.

shape fit girl 2019

Shape Fit Girl is our annual search for the most inspiring, fresh-faced fitness personality who embodies the values of Shape: strength, balance, sustainability and beauty from the inside out. As part of the competition, 19 shortlisted finalists put their strength, endurance and grit to test in a surprise fitness challenge at TFX Funan. They went through seven stations, pushing their limits doing: 500m rowing, eight-stage plank, chin-ups, 1min push-ups, 1min plyometric lunges, barbell squats and deadlifts. Scores were tallied based on their performance at each station. After sweating it out, the finalists received another surprise challenge: to come up with an active beauty look within three minutes, using products sponsored by Guardian. Judged by their creativity, confidence, eloquence, style, persuasiveness and presence, these women, along with Shape Fit Girl 2019 winner Ng Hui…

power to the people

Ng Hui Ru is exclaiming about my breakfast habits (i.e. non-existent). Sitting me down, she urges me to eat the all-important first meal of the day, telling me that it will help to stabilise my blood sugar and give my body the energy it needs (“otherwise it’s running on empty”). It’s the reason why I’m reaching for a 4pm snack, says the 27-year-old. Skipping breakfast can cause spikes and drops in the blood sugar level, where you crash after a meal and wind up craving carbs again. It’s something of a revelation. We’re in Hui Ru’s happy place, Wellness@Studio, where she works as a personal trainer and wellness coach. Beaming, she introduces us to both staff and clients in the studio, where a Beach Body workout is underway. She makes us…
