  • Get Fit While Fundraising

     

    Raising money for charity is probably one of the most admirable things that you can do with your time. Health and fitness, especially as the weather gets warmer, gets brought into focus with charity runs like the Cancer Research Race for Life taking place throughout the summer. Getting fit while raising money for charity is popular and puts the fun into fundraising.

    Sometimes, a fitness plan can feel boring but with the right motivation, it can be just what you need. Choosing to support your favourite charity is a great way of doing something good for yourself and for others – so why not make yourself feel great? There are so many ways you can set up a fitness fundraiser, but if you can’t set one up for yourself, why not get involved in the many that are out there?

    Fun Football

    One of the biggest office fundraising ideas is five a side football. Raising money for charity while playing against your colleagues is always a good time. You could charge a player fee, for tickets for spectators and you could have people donate food and drink to the day and a minimal charge. Everything can be given to your chosen charity, and it’s a great way to get your team together and working solidly.

    Wipe Out!

    Okay, so you may have heard of the game show It’s A Wipe Out! And if so, you will absolutely love this fundraising idea. Healthy competition is great fun for the whole office to get involved in and you can reach out to sports venues and events providers for charitable donations of the equipment needed for the obstacle course. Where you can, ask for donations of food and refreshments for the day and charge for tickets. Have participants raise money for sponsorship so that you can get as much done for your chosen charity as possible.

    Colour Run

    One of the biggest events of the year is the Happy 5K Colour Run, so take some inspiration and buy color powder for a run of your own. It’s messy, it’s colourful and best of all, it’s non-toxic so you can have an Eighties themed charity day! Sponsorship forms can be created and you could ask for a field or park owner to donate the space you need. You can buy the colourful powders in bulk, too, which can save money and direct more to your charity.

    Sponsored Swim

    Getting a great deal on a public pool allowing you an afternoon to use it for fundraising purposes won’t always be difficult. Get everyone in the office who is a competent swimmer involved and enjoy the workout that comes with training for a swimming event. You could contact local newspapers to get the right turn out and charge for tickets to the event. Sponsorship will also raise a good amount of money for your charity.

     

    Fundraising should be fun, raise a lot of money and if you can manage it, burn a few hundred calories. Getting fit in the name of charity is going to be one of the most satisfying decisions you’ll make this year!

  • Celeb Worthy Hair And Beauty Bites To Try Today

     

    pout

     

    Who says the best health and beauty services should be saved for celebrities? If you want to get that A-list glow, look like a million dollars as soon as you wake up, and feel like it too, you’re going to want to get on the celeb-worthy treatment list. It might seem like celeb body secrets are a mystery, but really, they just try new things until they find a health service or beauty treatment that works best for them. So now, you should do the same!

    Microblading

    Unless you’ve been in hiding for the last five years, you know know that the entire world has gone brow crazy. From catwalk models to actresses and back again, these girls know how to rock a strong brow. But, if you weren’t blessed with high arches and a lot of brow hair, you probably think that you’re destined to be out of the brow game forever, right? Wrong! You just need microblading. This incredible beauty treatment creates hair-like strokes using dye (like tattooing) so that you get the look of bolder, fuller brows for up to two years!

    Private Doctor

    From waking up with celeb level looks to being treated like one, let’s talk health care. If you want to make sure that your female health gets checked when you need it to, or that you can see a dermatology specialist at the drop of a hat, you need to take your medical care to the private level, just like a celeb would. With places like http://samedaydoctor.org/, there’s no waiting around. Finally, celeb style access to the services you need is no longer a secret!

    Chemical Peel

    Ever wondered why the A-list always seem to have incredible skin? Okay, so maybe some of them were born with it, but most just know how to look after it. Yes, you need to make sure you have a flawless skincare routine, but you also need a few killer treatments every once in awhile to keep it in tip-top shape. Like a chemical peel – just like Samantha has in Sex and the City! And if you’ve ever wondered if it really works, Lauren’s review is hilarious and honest, so take a read and see for yourself – http://www.marieclaire.com/beauty/news/a14293/first-chemical-peel-benefits-review/.

    Vitamin Infusion

    If you ever wonder if celebs always feel as good as they look, they probably do. Because they know what treatments to try to really get results. To feel incredible, a vitamin infusion could be all you need. Essentially, you’ll be hooked up to an IV and pumped full of essential vitamins like vitamin C, vitamin B or calcium. Your own personal cocktail will depend on what you’re looking to get out of the infusion. But for a short term perk, it’s an A-list style treatment.

    Personal Trainer

    And of course, there’s always the option to go with a personal trainer – maybe even a nutritionist too. Yes, celebrities always look incredible, because their job often requires that they do, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t too. If you really want the body of your dreams, find the right personal trainer to create a workout plan that works for you and a nutritionist to create a diet that follows suit.

  • Celeb Body Secrets The A’list Don’t Want You To Know

     

    It’s no secret that the A-listers on the red carpet look amazing! But what is a secret is how they can possibly look that good, bearing in mind that they only have the same 24-hours in a day as the rest of us. But we have uncovered a few of their hush-hush methods, just read on to find out more.

    Mindful eating

    Mindful eating is the last thing that you would expect the most celeb to be doing. As it means connecting with every facet of the food. From its taste to its texture and smell.

    For some celebs that take extreme dieting to the max, this could be pretty tough. As they aren’t exactly eating the most delicious things, to begin with. That is why when doing mindful eating, it’s best to make less restrictive choices about what food to consume.

    The benefits of mindful eating are meant to be a more healthy relationship with food, which a lot of famous celebs could do with. Although I’m naming no names! As well as weight loss because you learn to recognize your body’s signs of being full, and so don’t eat as much.

     

    Keto diet

    Something that is going the round in celebrity circles at the moment is the keto diet. This is where you eat a higher fat diet, but pretty much cut out all carbs.

    The idea behind this is that your body goes into ketosis, where it burns fat for fuel instead of glucose from carbs. Meaning you can shift any unwanted fat stores and look amazing.

    However, while it might be a celebrity body solution, some of the side effects are fewer than glamorous. These include bad breath and keto flu. Which can make your feel pretty ill for a few days. Although If you are a celeb, I guess you can just sleep it off until you feel better.

     

    Home gyms

    There are very few celebrities that would be caught dead without a home gym. Even if they do pop out to the ones where the public can see them, and the paparazzo can photograph them from time to time.

    The hottest equipment for these home gyms at the moment are things like recumbent exercise bikes. Which allow you to burn calories but also be comfortable and reduce any strain on your back. As well as vibration plates which make the stretches that you do much more effective helping you to get the celeb body quicker.

     

    Yoga

    yoga

     

    Now yoga is still popular in celeb circles as a way of toning and shaping the body. But just being able to bend yourself into untenable positions isn’t enough anymore. Now you have to do it in a boiling hot room too!

    This style of Yoga is called Bikram, and it’s not actually as bad as it sounds. It fact the heat does make you sweat more. But it also helps you to stretch more and be flexible. So making your progress to that celeb body that much faster.

  • The Traveler’s Guide To Fitness On The Move

    fitness1

     

    While you’re away on holiday or traveling to see the sights, it can be really hard to keep your fitness regime in order. A lot of people work very hard to make their bodies perfect for tips like this. So, in most cases, you will want to maintain what you already have. With the temptation to lie in the sun and eat to your heart’s content there, though; it can be hard to be conservative. To help you out, this post will be going through some of the ways to make sure that you are able to keep up your normal workouts while you’re away. And, it will also be looking at ways to make sure that you eat healthy, too.

    To start this off, most people will be most concerned about their exercise while away. Of course, you can’t exactly drag the treadmill or a set of weights with you. But, this doesn’t mean that you can’t exercise as normal. Every country has gyms. And, the odds are that your hotel will have one that you have free access to. In most cases, these places are largely deserted, and you will be able to exercise in peace. Along with this, you could also consider going for runs or cycles instead of hiring a car. Sightseeing can be made much more pleasant when you’re doing it slowly. And, so, not having a car is never a bad thing. Instead, you just have to use your body.

    Next, it’s time to start thinking about the food you eat while you’re away. In most cases, it’s best to avoid the allure of all-inclusive breaks. These sorts of trips will make it far too easy for you to eat bad food. Instead, you should try and source your own food while away. Self-catering breaks will give you the chance to make basic meals for yourself. And, then, you can also find healthy  places to eat near your hotel. Some people will be happy to miss out on nice food altogether and go for something like Huel. These nutritionally complete meal systems are great for traveling because they’re cheap and easy to pack.

    Last on this list comes health. A lot of people won’t consider this side of their fitness to be important while they’re away. But, it’s critical to make sure that you’re healthy; even when you’re on holiday. When you’re exercising, you increase the chances that you’ll have an injury. While you’re away, this can be very hard to deal with. Medical professionals in the place you’re staying may not speak the same language as you. So, it’s better to have a dr app ready to serve you whenever you need it. This will enable you to get free and simple advice; without having to use a translation tool.


    Hopefully, this will inspire you to start working harder when you go on holiday. It’s a shame to let the work you’ve done to get into shape go to waste. Instead, you should be actively trying to get fitter while you’re on your break.

  • How To Accessorise Your Classic Outfits

    acc1

     

    There are certain outfits that every girl has in their wardrobe; the little black dress, skinny jeans, the white t-shirt and ruffle shirt. And while these are all great and versatile outfits, they can get a little boring from time to time. That is why accessories are so important. They can totally transform the look of any outfit and give it an entirely new feel depending on where you are going and what you are doing. Here are a few classic outfits and the ways in which you can accessorise them to the max.

    The Little Black Dress

    A favourite item in many wardrobes, the little black dress can be worn in a range of different situations. If you are going to work, you can go for some simple jewellery like lacquered bangles along with a leather tote bag and some brightly coloured pumps or heels. For a more dressed-down look, you simple need to add some vibrant sunglasses, a printed scarf and some wedges. If you are planning to venture out on an elegant evening, some killer heels and statement jewellery can give you that added touch of glamour.

    Plain T-Shirt and Ruffle Skirt

    While worn on their own, they present the ultimate casual image, simple adding a few well-chosen accessories to this classic outfit can make all the difference. Planning on going out on a lunch date? You can offset the plain look with some patterned wedges and brightly coloured clutch. If you have a busy day ahead of you in the office, you could add some sharp glasses and a portfolio bag to keep all your papers.

    Skinny Jeans and Sweatshirt

    acc2

     

    Another great casual look that can be livened up is the skinny jeans and sweatshirt look. If you are going out to a concert, you could try adding some bold jewellery such as stainless steel bracelets and chunky necklaces. Going out on a casual night out? All you need to add is a touch of sparkle and sequins in your bag, sandals and jewellery. During an afternoon out shopping, some simple wayfarers and patterned flats can give provide both comfort and style.

    Blouse and Leggings

    Many people go for a light coloured blouse offset against some darker leggings to give you a nice contrasting starting point. From here, you have endless choice to add various colours depending on your mood and the occasion. Gold is a particularly standout colour when it comes to this outfit, so why not go for some bangles and a sequined collar? If you are looking for an elegant Hepburn-esque look, try some cat-eye sunglasses, a pearl necklace, simple jacket and ballet flats. You can add some real depth with vibrant colours such as hot pink.

    So, now you have a few ideas, then it is time to get really creative. Most great outfits start from with the basics which allow you to build in your own ideas and sense of personality. Start experimenting to see what you come up with.

  • Staying Fit And Healthy This Festival Season

    festivals1

     

    Festival season is now in full swing, and that means lots of alcohol, fast food and tempting treats to tear you away from your fitness regime. It’s not all bad though, according to some experts, you can burn in excess of 3000 calories per day if you spend your time at the festivals dancing, which means that it’s perfectly possible to stay fit while you soak up the atmosphere and have the time of your life at your favorite event.

    As well as spending a lot of time dancing, there are a number of other things you can do to stay fit during festival seasons. Here are some of them:

    Pack Healthy Snacks

    If you know that you’re not going to be able to get through a festival weekend without lots of tasty snacks, come prepared by packing your backpack with a few healthy treats like dried fruit, nuts and granola bars. I mean, who wants to spend 45 minutes lining up for a greasy burger anyway?

    Stay Hydrated

    festivals2-stayhydrated

    No doubt you’ll be sampling an alcoholic drink or two during festival season, but don’t make beer all you drink. Keep a bottle of water on you at all times to stop you getting dehydrated, and you’ll feel happier, more alert and better able to fight off those junk food cravings. If you’re lucky, it’ll also minimize your hangovers too.

    Stick to Spirits

    Speaking of alcohol, if you must indulge, sticking to spirits mixed with slim line tonic or diet sodas will cut your calorie count right down. Beer and cocktails have many more calories than drinks mixed this way, so you can still have a` good time and relax with a cold drink without doing damage to your waistline.
    Make Healthier Food Choices

    festivals3-healthyfood

    Pretty Much every festival you can think of has some healthy food options available for purchase. Sure, there’s probably ten times more hotdog and burger stands than there are falafel stalls and salad bars, but if you make the effort, you will find good food that will fuel you throughout the festival and ensure you leave with your original waistline intact.

    Share Your Food

    The portions at festivals are often pretty huge, so if you, like me hate to waste food, and you don’t want to ruin your diet by overeating, sharing your food with a friend is a great way to stay on track. It’ll save you some money too.

    Dance, Dance, Dance

    festivals4-dance

    You’re at a festival, so don’t just stand there, bust some moves to your favorite music. As I mentioned earlier, you can burn thousands of calories each day dancing at festivals, which not only means you’ll be able to maintain a trim figure, but you’ll also be able to eat and drink a little more too, if you want to!

    Exercise

    Yes, you’re at a festival, sleeping in a tent amongst a sea of other people doing the same, but that doesn’t mean you can’t exercise. You probably won’t want or be able, to go for a long run or bust out the weights, but there are effective workout programs at www.piyoreviews.com/ which aren’t too intrusive, and which you can complete in as little as ten minutes. Who knows, you might even leave the festival in better shape than you were when you left!

    Remind Yourself of Your Goals

    festivals5-fitbit

    Whether you’re trying to lose weight, looking to maintain your present weight or simply trying to make healthier choices, you’re far less likely to fall off the wagon if you regularly think about your goals. Go over all the reasons why you want to stick to a fit and healthy lifestyle, even at festivals, and your brain will get into gear and help you avoid the temptation. You might even want to download one of the goal setting apps at https://www.lifewire.com/best-goal-setting-apps-3485941 to help you keep track of and maintain your goals. Anything that helps is worth a try.

    Explore

    Festivals tend to be located in vast areas, so get out there and explore every inch of the site and beyond. You’ll meet more people, see more interesting things and, most importantly of all, burn more calories as you wander around taking in the sights and sounds of the festival. Take your camera along, and you’ll get some great shots too.

    Have a Good Time

    festivals6-goodtime

     

    Of course, festivals are about having a good time, so don’t be afraid to indulge yourself in the odd treat, just don’t make every snack and each meal a hugely calorific one and you should be fine.

  • How To Get Started With Running (For Running Haters)

     

    It’s no secret that as far as fitness goes, a huge proportion of the population enjoy running as a way to stay healthy. It is a popular pastime for just about anyone, whether you go out for an evening jog or take it slightly more serious, with regular 10ks and marathons. However, with running, it can often be a case of ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’. If you fall into the latter category, chances are you’ve tried running before but can’t get your head around why people seem to enjoy it so much. Your shins hurt, you get out of breath after five minutes and above all else you find it painfully boring. Sound familiar? You’re not alone; plenty of people have this opinion of running and have resigned themselves to the fact that the sport simply isn’t for them. But this is where they, and you, could in fact be wrong. There isn’t one single blueprint for running, and you may simply not enjoy it at the moment because you are waiting for that ‘lightbulb moment’ where it all falls into place. Instead, here are a few tips on how you can get started with running, even if you’re convinced you’ll always hate it.

    Start slow

    Jumping headfirst into a 5k race with no previous experience can only end in disaster. The phrase ‘don’t run before you can walk’ has never been so appropriate: quite literally, give walking a go first! Your fitness levels and ability to maintain a pace at long distance could be a little rusty, so do some cross country walking or power walking first to warm things up. At this stage, it is important that you are wearing comfortable clothing and footwear, so you can find the best shoes for this at www.womenswalkingshoereview.com. Do some research on popular walking or trekking routes near your home and head out on a sunny afternoon.

    running

     

    Pack some entertainment

    You may wonder what kind of entertainment you could possibly pay attention to while running. But if you’re not listening to music or watching a TV show while you run, you could be missing a trick! Music can easily get you pumped up and motivated, so you may find that by plugging in your headphones you immediately have more energy with your run. If you run on the treadmill at the gym, why not prop your phone up on the dashboard and watch an episode of your favorite show while you train?

    Fuel your body

    Carb loading before a beginner-level run isn’t always totally necessary – but you will need to make sure that you’re not hungry before you’ve started your run. Your performance will immediately be hindered and you’ll probably come away from it thinking that no, running just isn’t for you. Instead, eat a light meal of simple carbs before you go for your run – a bagel and a banana easily fit the bill here.

  • How To Add Custom Style To Festival Looks

     

    Summer is almost here, which means only one thing: you’re probably already adding the finishing touches to your festival outfits. There’s nothing better than a summer festival – we’ve already seen the Coachella fashion, which means that we’re eagerly awaiting the looks that come out of Wireless and Glastonbury too. Admittedly, there might just be a bit more mud from the British festivals, but let’s face it – no one loves a challenge more than festival-goers willing to trek through miles of mud to get to the Pyramid Stage. Here are some tips on how you can make your festival look stand out from the crowd…

     

    festival1

     

     

    Be Sensible With Your Footwear

    There’s standing out from the crowd in a good way and standing out from the crowd in a bad way – and if you’re not smart with your footwear, you might just turn out to be one of those people who end up on the front page of the Mail Online, your fairy wings covered in mud and cider and with an unhappy look on your face. It’s important that you go for comfortable footwear at festivals – ditch the sandals, ditch the flat, ditch any expensive shoes that aren’t resolutely waterproof. Wellies are a great idea – make sure you’ve got long socks so they don’t rub against your legs – as are a great sturdy pair of DMs so long as the mud isn’t too deep. Comfort is key.

     

    festival2

     

    Accessorise Carefully

    Let’s face it: things get lost at festivals. Phones, credit cards – your innocence that time you saw a spotty youth be sick in his pint glass and then cheerfully drink it again – which means that you shouldn’t take anything that’s too precious to you. Jewellery, however? That’s okay. Maybe don’t go for your hugely expensive engagement ring, but if you want to wear your favourite necklace or rings and you aren’t planning to let them leave your body for the whole time you’re at the festival, there’s really no problem. A lot of people go for custom made French jewellery that’s chic and unique at the same time, statement earrings and hippie pendants made out of natural materials. One piece of advice? You may be at a festival, but you still shouldn’t go full hippie chic and wear a toe ring. There’s never a good reason for that.

     

    festival3

     

    Make A Statement With Your Makeup

    Almost every woman can either apply a perfect cat eye or a red lip even under the most strenuous of circumstances, including while sitting in a tent while a group of lads throw hamburgers at it at a misguided attempt at festival flirting. Take makeup wipes with you so that you can remove your makeup every night and freshen up in the morning, and make an effort to ensure your face looks good. Your foundation doesn’t have to be flawless. Just remember to draw on your brows, apply either your lippie or liner to distract from your less-than-clean hair, and add some glitter for good measure. After all, f you can’t wear glitter at a festival, where on earth can you wear it?

  • Anti Aging – The Celeb Way

     

    When we look at pictures of celebs now, compared to how they were twenty years ago, it can seem as if we’ve entered a time warp. They look identical! In some cases, they look even better. The styles may have changed, but their faces remain frozen in some alternate time zone. Us mere mortals may conclude that they’ve had surgery to make ourselves feel better. In truth, though, that’s not always the case. Sometimes, they do manage to stop the hands of the clock. This could be down to having a decent beauty team around them. They have people to give them the advice they need to stay looking young. It makes sense that we should heed their advice. It’s obviously worked for them! So, how can we get the look they seem to achieve so effortlessly?


    The internet gives us a surprising look into the private lives of celebs. We don’t have to buy magazines to have a nose anymore. Instead, we head to the pages of the web. Unsurprisingly, those seemingly ageless celebs get asked many questions about their beauty regimes. We’ve scrolled through the pages to see what they say. For the most part, it’s things we should already know. Well, apart from Angelina Jolie, who claimed facial caviar was her secret. At $710, we thought we’d give that one a miss! But, even if we already know what we should be doing, we often fail to follow through. Hearing it from the celebs may be what you need to kick start your anti-aging routines. Here are a few of the main things that stood out.

    aging1

     

    MOISTURIZING

    This should go without saying. Keeping moisture in your skin is crucial for avoiding wrinkles. As if you need proof, Demi Moore claims this is the sole anti-aging secret she relies on. And, she looks fantastic for it! J-Lo also praises the use of moisturizer. She recommends you find one that boosts collagen and cell turnover. So, with that advice, it’s time to get on top of your moisturization routine. This is not a step you can afford to skip. Make sure to get into the habit of moisturizing every day. A standard moisturizer is better than nothing, it may be worth taking J-Lo’s advice. There are many anti-aging specific options on the market. Using these will give you extra peace of mind. And, they may well make all the difference. It’s not just moisturizing products that you need to worry about, either. Many elements put our skin at risk of drying. Keep yourself hydrated throughout the day to make sure your skin stays shining!

    CUT OUT BAD HABITS

    Okay, this one’s a bit of broken track record advice. But, there’s a good reason for it. Every health professional you come across will urge you to stop smoking and cut down on drinking. Health risks aside, these bad habits can speed up the aging process. And, many celebrities speak of the benefits. You don’t see any of them with those tell-tale smoking mouths, do you? And smoking can affect your appearance in ways you would never consider. A Johns Hopkins study revealed smokers are four times as likely to report feeling unrested. And, lack of sleep = bags under the eyes. Smoking also affects the blood supply that keeps your skin looking healthy.

    Drinking isn’t good, either. Remember what we said about staying hydrated? Heavy drinking does the opposite. It dehydrates you and wreaks havoc on your skin. You’ll undo all your hard work if you have a daily glass of wine.

    aging-hair

     

    HAIR

    Never underestimate the power of good hair. Christie Brinkley claims this is her secret. And, it makes complete sense. Let’s be honest; most of these women would have gray hair if they didn’t dye. And, how different would they look then? None of these anti-aging secrets would save them. But, having a great head of hair can hide a multitude of sins. To stay looking younger for longer, get into the habit of dying your hair as soon as your gray starts showing. And, make sure to keep on top of things. Your younger self may have been able to dye every six weeks or so. But, that won’t be anywhere near enough now. Keep a dye kit at home at all times. Those gray roots are going to be so obvious that you’ll want to cover them the moment they appear.

    Grey hairs aren’t the only hair issue that ages us. We always have to contend with thinning hair. Thick, luscious hair is the goal for us all. So, it’s upsetting when our locks start to thin. But, there are ways around the problem. Extensions are an excellent way to fill your hair out again. You could even look into hair transplant procedures from Roxy Plastic Surgery or somewhere similar.
    The style you choose can also hide a multitude of sins. Try to choose a haircut that best compliments you. The right choice could reverse the years, and send you into the time warp along with your favorite celebs. Not to mention that it could change the way you feel about your appearance. And, they say that makes all the difference. A new haircut will leave you feeling confident and ready for action. That alone will be enough to make you appear younger and fresher to the world around you.

    AVOID THE SUN

    The pale beauty of Julianne Moore dazzles us all. Her secret is nothing more complicated than staying out of the sun. We all know the effect sun damage can have on our skin. There is, of course, the risk of skin cancer. And there can be disastrous effects for our skin condition. Remember what we were saying earlier about moisturization? Letting you skin sizzle is no way to keep it hydrated. And, it’ll show. We all know someone who had a love for the sun when they were younger. Use their aging skin as a warning. Major sun damage causes skin to age at a much faster rate.

    Julianne Moore claims to use sunscreen every single day. She also recommends walking in the shade rather than the sun. Of course, most of us aren’t quite so pale, and may not need to go to these extremes. Even so, the sunscreen advice is worth following. You may even be able to find a foundation with sun blocking abilities. This may be your best bet. There’s more chance of you remembering your foundation. And, don’t think you only need take these measures in the summer months. The sun poses more risk when it’s hidden behind clouds. You may not be able to see it, but it’s there all the same! Buy a travel size sunscreen and keep it in your bag. That way, you’ll always have it with you.

    STAY IN SHAPE

    We’re back to J-Lo for this sage piece of advice. She recommends that you focus on working out. We’re sure you’ve heard that from your doctors more times than you can count. But, it’s an important piece of advice to follow. There are many benefits to working out as you get older. As though you need more proof, look at J-Lo’s body! She wouldn’t have those booty shaking abilities if she didn’t get stuck into exercise now and again. If you need a little help, she’s recently bought out a wellness brand called BodyLab. There’s no one better for guiding you through your get fit journey!

    It’s natural for your metabolism to slow as you age. So, it’s no surprise that most people put on a little weight. But, exercise can help you keep this at bay. It will also allow you to stay active and upright, which has got to help in the aging stakes. It’s hard to look young if you have trouble getting out of your chair. One thing’s sure; that’s not something J-Lo has trouble with.

    DON’T DO ANYTHING?

    Supermodel Cindy Crawford said, ‘The Secret is that there’s no secret.’ Hard to believe, right? She looks as fabulous as she did in her runway days. And, that’s after two children! Even so, it’s advice that’s obviously worked well for her. She claims that all you need to do is what you already know. And, isn’t that what we’ve been saying? The secrets are those pieces of advice we’re always given but fail to follow. She also recommends using beauty products from a young age, claiming you need patience to see results. Lucky for us, she has a skincare range: Meaningful Beauty. Like J-Lo’s fitness regime, the benefits of the products speak for themselves.

    So, there you have it. It seems it’s easier to stop time than we thought. As it is so easy, there’s no excuse for failing to act. Whether you’re 30, or 45, you should be taking action. You owe it to your skin and your happiness to look as good as the celebs. You only live once, after all. There’s no time to let things slide!
