Diet and acne - what can you do
The truth to a diet for clear skin is not revolutionary: in fact, a simple, healthy diet is not just what the doctor ordered – it’s also the key to acne-free skin. So, you may not find this a shocking diet outline, but that doesn’t make it easy to stick to. It’s also not a one-size-fits-all – a diet that works for a friend may not suit you perfectly, so it’s up to you to experiment to find the perfect healthy balance for your own skin and body.
Keep a food diary to help you track and make adjustments to your diet. Remember that moderation, patience and discipline are key to carving out the best meal plan to lead to beautiful, healthy, clear skin.
How to avoid the dreaded post-flight breakout
If a long haul flight leaves you dehydrated, tired and a little worse for wear by the time you reach your destination, fear not as there are some easy yet effective ways to make sure your skin keeps in tip top condition regardless of how many air miles you are travelling.
Claudia says - “Skin gets very little oxygen during flight time as you are enclosed in an encapsulated environment without fresh air depending on recycled air and therefore it does not get cleansed thoroughly. This immediately results in dehydration, sensitivity and tired dull skin. It’s important to travel with well-cleansed skin – apply two layers of moisturiser and avoid makeup."

Why is wearing makeup to the gym bad for your skin?
We all know that wearing make-up whilst exercising is bad for our skin, so why do we still see gyms full of women wearing full faces of carefully applied cosmetics?
Mascara is one thing - though beware, you may find it running down your cheeks by the end of the session - but with foundation and powder you risk blocking pores and congesting skin that really needs to be able to sweat, sweat, sweat.
