Following on from last week’s top seasonal beauty tips, this time it’s all about health and how to protect yourself from nasty bugs this winter. Now that it looks like our lovely Indian summer has come to an end, your body will be fighting harder then ever to keep those energy levels up and that immune system strong.
Vitamins and Minerals:
Make sure you stock up on as many vitamins and minerals as possible. Vitamin C is your absolute go to this season as it is the best possible ways to boost your immune system. The best sources of Vitamin C are found in strawberries, kiwis, oranges and guavas, but since guavas aren’t the easiest thing to get hold of and strawberries aren’t always in season, the best way to do it is to take a supplement. For a brand of supplements that not only do what they say on the bottle, but also look good too, you must try atone (www.atoneonline.com). Their Immunity supplement combines Fibrinase, an important enzyme for healthy circulation, with a fat-soluble form of Vitamin C. Get 90 tablets for £24.50.
This is the perfect time of year for going on a food cleanse. The best one I know is Raw Fairies five day Cleanse, in which your food gets delivered straight to your door (or desk as the case may be). Packed with antioxidant filled smoothies, green juices (that don’t taste that great but boy... do those babies make you feel good) and a variety of raw salads, this cleanse is a great way of giving your body all the nutrients it needs and then some. It also helps to get rid of the toxins that build up and gives your body a break from all that sugar we have been ploughing it with. The salads are delicious and I discovered lots of new combinations of raw vegetables and sauces that tasted positively scrumptious. I can’t lie, the pure juice day that falls in the middle of the five day cleanse was tricky for me, especially as I am so active, but my energy levels rose considerably on day four and five and my skin completely cleared up. The Five Day Mini B Cleanse is £295. Visit www.rawfairies.com
Sleep is particularly crucial at this time of year. Again it is all to do with preparing our body for the winter to come and the amount of sleep we get is, of course, directly linked to our energy levels. It is recommended that we get eight hours of sleep a night. The best sleep is that before 12am, so try and get into bed as early as possible, even if it means reading for a bit before you are tired. If you have trouble sleeping there are a few things you can do. Neal’s Yard makes a Sleep Kit, which includes calm-infusing camomile tea, lavender remedies to role and Unwind flower essence (£26.25). Buy it - you won't regret it. Also, another good trick is that if it is the thoughts in your head that are keeping you awake then keep a notepad by your bed and write them all down before you close your eyes. You will sleep much easier knowing that you won’t forget them come morning.
Organic red wine:
Although it’s not good to rely on a glass of red wine every evening, there are some health benefits to having a glass of organic red wine every now and then. You’ll be in luck if you find a Madiran red wine, which is from the tiny wine appellation located in Gers, in the Gascony region of South Western France, as wine from this region is said to be amongst the healthiest on the planet, and one that could actually reduce your cholesterol levels and encourage a healthy heart. It is all to do with the way that the grapes ferment, as wine can in fact contain very high levels of antioxidants and resveratrol (a fantastic anti-ager), which help to protect the heart. The antioxidants also help to protect your body from nasty free radicals, which are known to cause some horrid diseases such as cancer. So bottoms up!
