Give Yourself A Natural Face (And Body) Lift With The Supergreen Diet

55147_5506

As regular readers know, we believe absolutely that beauty has to be a two-way thing: what you put in your body is absolutely 100% as important as what you put on it. This was confirmed to us, yet again, when we recently saw 160 Beauty Bible readers for ‘age-defying’ consultations at Selfridges, as part of our book tour: the ones who took care of themselves (eating well, walking, generally keeping active, not smoking) were the ones who truly glowed…

We swear by this ‘Supergreens Facelift Diet’ – which features (for those of you who haven’t bought your copy yet) in The Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible. (We are delighted to say that VH is the only place you can get hold of copies that have been signed by both of us!) For anyone who hasn’t yet got the book, here’s a taster – and an easy-to-follow, feel-good diet that (trust us) really does have an amazing effect. At its heart is Sun Chlorella, a supplement which regular Beauty Bible followers will know that we can’t live without, based on advice from Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner and nutritionist Nadia Brydon. For the full explanation of why it works, you’ll need to read the book. But meanwhile, here’s the ‘diet’ itself. (Normally hate that word, but as this isn’t about weight-loss, we can tolerate it…!)

The Most Important Thing You Can Do For Your Skin

When it comes to skincare, what we hear constantly is that cleansing is ‘the boring bit’. But over the past 20 years in the beauty world, what we’ve learned is: cleansing is actually probably the most important thing you can do for your skin. (In fact, we like to call ourselves ‘the Queens of Clean’.)

Why’s that? Because if cleansing isn’t done properly, you are virtually pouring the money you’ve spent on your moisturiser or your whizbang anti-ageing cream down the sink, frankly. And we always liked the description (picked this up from a New York dermatologist) that ‘applying skin creams without cleansing properly is the equivalent of putting polish on a dirty floor.’ Read More…

Travel Tips

Q I’m about to fly to Australia to meet my fiancé for our wedding and want to look my best when he meets me at the airport. Rather than the tired-rag-bag look I usually sport on these occasions. Any tips please?

A Yes! And not only can we give you our top tips but our old friend Liz Earle (of the skincare range) – a seasoned long distance traveller – has invaluable advice too: Read More…

The Dawn Of Beauty Bible … The Birth Of A Legend…!

Victoria Health Beauty Bible

As this is Beauty Bible’s first editorial column on VH, we thought we’d take the opportunity to give you the insider low-down on how we met, what we do – and why we do it.

First: well, we’ll always have Paris… It was there that Sarah ‘proposed’ – well, proposed that the two of us do a beauty book together. We’d known each other ‘on the circuit’ for some time, and become friends. (We cannot pretend it’s unglamorous, this beauty editor lark: if it’s Monday it must be the Plaza Athénée, if it’s Tuesday it must be Claridges, and so on. Luckily, most of us get on like a scented votive on fire.) Read More…
