Bodytox Detox Foot Patches

foot-detox-sarah-stacey-625x416

Recently, I rediscovered Bodytox Detox Foot Patches, which you apply at night. Come the morning, I peeled them off, shuddered at the dark waste on each pad, then marvelled at how well I’d slept and how rested and toned my face looked. Your feet are the foundation of your body, according to Chinese medicine, with 60 acupuncture points and some 7,000 nerve endings. The patches combine wood vinegar, mugwort extract, chitosan (an ingredient from crustacean shells) and tourmaline (a semiprecious mineral), which claim to draw out toxins from your body. £12.99 for six.

Supplements: What We Take

supplements

Our bathroom shelves may be lined with the latest wonder-in-a-jar miracle-promising products, packed with antixoidants, herbs and vitamins – but trust me: it’s only half the battle. True beauty is more than skin deep and over the years, the two of us at Beauty Bible have come to believe that for truly amazing skin, it’s also what you put inside your system that really counts.

Hands down, experts agree that healthy skin is the product of good nutrition. Why? Epidermal tissue – which makes up the outer body – is synthesised from proteins (collagen and elastin), fats, vitamins and minerals. Skimp on those and you’ll short-change skin. Not so long ago, we saw for ourselves just what a difference dieting can make, during a five-day pop-up shop at Selfridges for the launch of our latest book, The Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible.

We did 160 back-to-back anti-ageing consultations with real women – and there’s no question: in those who ate well and supplemented their diet, this literally shone out through their healthy complexions. (By contrast, fascinatingly, one woman who came to see us – I’d call her fat-phobic, as she’s eaten a virtually entirely fat-free diet for the past 20 years – looked a good 20 years older than she is, with deep wrinkles. And no, she doesn’t sunbathe: it can only be her fat-restricted diet that is the culprit.)

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…!)
