The Beauty Chef:





We are what we eat which is why a nutritious diet is more important than ever. Eating clean when you’re strapped for time isn’t always easy, but these simple additions to your diet can make all the difference.     





Eliminating “bad” foods such as sugars and desserts can be difficult, so balance out the nasty effects on your body by introducing more alkaline foods. “The idea is to create the optimal pH balance in the body because an acidic environment harbours disease and can be blamed for low energy, weight gain and digestive problems. An alkaline diet involves eating lots of leafy greens, vegetables and nuts,” recommends Elle Macpherson, Co-Founder of WelleCo.



Health experts stress continue to stress the importance of gut health and its role in aiding digestive and overall well-being. “Probiotic foods like sauerkraut and kimchi help boost gut health. Studies show that people with a healthier microbial profile in their gut have a better fatty acid profile in their skin,” says Carla Oates, Founder of The Beauty Chef.







Vegetables are a great source of nutrients and vitamins, but not everyone loves them. A vegetable juice will fill you up while providing you with all the goodness the body needs. “I am a big believer in vegetable juicing, which I try to do three times a day. I include garlic, turmeric, ginger, romaine lettuce, coriander, parsley, cucumber, sprouts and a whole lemon,” says Macpherson.




Fibre helps clean the bowels and move waste out of the body while nourishing the gut. “Eat more fruits and veggies which are high in soluble fibre which helps attract water and keep you feeling fuller for longer. Insoluble fibre - found in unpeeled fruits and vegetables, wholegrains and flaxseeds - is what helps to keep things moving along,” says Oates.




For years fat had a bad reputation, but now experts are uncovering its numerous benefits including improved brain performance. “Make sure you choose the right fats such as premium olive oil and sardines which are packed with omega-3 fatty acids,” says Macpherson.

Few things are as refreshing as a good night’s sleep. It helps memory, attentiveness, productivity, and of course, our general well-being. But many of us live in a state of continual sleep deprivation. To help, we asked Hong Kong-based, internationally board-certified sleep physiologist, sleep science coach and founder of Sleep HQ, Kate Bridle, for her thoughts on how we can sleep longer and more deeply.



Eye relaxation is important as part of whole-body relaxation, which impacts significantly on sleep. Try giving yourself an eye massage before bed or using a warm compress to relax eye muscles and relieve dry eyes.


Kate says: “A great trick to relax eyes before you go to sleep is to soak a small towel or microfibre cloth in hot water. Squeeze any excess water out, lie down in a dark bedroom and place the cloth over your eyes. Focus on relaxing all facial muscles and keep the cloth in place for five minutes as part of your relaxing bedtime ritual.“





Recent studies including one from the US National Institutes of Health have shown that breathable material is best – that could be silk, wool or cotton. If you choose cotton, don’t be seduced by thread count – it doesn’t necessarily indicate quality. And very high thread count means the fabric might not breathe well. The maximum should be about 500.



Kate says: “Investing in good bedding is important. High-quality, breathable sheets are known to promote better sleep through improved body temperature regulation. Keeping your bedding clean and well-aired is also important. Low body temperature and comfort are significant factors in better sleep quality.” 




Exposure to blue light – the type commonly emitted by digital devices – suppresses our “sleep hormone” melatonin. This is particularly bad at night, as it disrupts our circadian rhythms and may lead to long-term health effects, according to Harvard researchers.


Kate says: “Light is the main external influence on our sleep-wake cycle, and unfortunately we live in a world of artificial light. Stick to ‘warmer’ low-light lamps in the hour before bed to ensure your brain can start preparing for sleep adequately – candlelight is also excellent in that time.”







Meditation is a great way to relax before bed. For beginners, simply sit or lie comfortably, close your eyes, breathe naturally and focus on your breathing and the way your body moves with it.

Kate says: “Many of us are always on the go, so our bodies are in a chronic state of stress or ‘high alert’ and we find it hard to switch off at night. Meditation is a way to calm and focus the mind, to prevent ourselves from worrying about things that may have happened during the day or that may happen the next day. It helps us to control which hormones are surging around our body, switching from those associated with stress and worry to those that help us to rest and relax. I recommend that around 30 minutes before bed, you write a list of anything you need to do tomorrow – putting it on paper gets it off your mind – followed by 10 to 15 minutes of meditation. Apps are excellent help for beginners.”
