This morning I inadvertently pulled out a black lacy full body stocking from my underwear drawer as opposed to the obligatory pair of thick black tights that I was really looking for! The horror! Someone else obviously thought it was a good idea to buy this for me (it wasn’t me honest!) thinking I might look sexy instead of actually looking like a sausage dog caught in a trapper’s net!!!!
Anyway, that got me thinking about the gorgeous VS Angels who hit the catwalk this week for their annual lingerie spectacular. Those girls are out of this world spectacular.
They are nothing like me!
They are thorough breds whilst I’m a Shetland pony!
They are tall, perfectly sculpted, statuesque, sexy, sizzling sexpots!!!
They are also incredibly disciplined and dedicated to their runway cause and most importantly, they take the issue of H2O completely seriously. We could all learn a thing or two about their water addiction especially at this time of year when the Xmas party season is looming large and dehydration of every kind is about to become your No1 enemy.
Getting and keeping that banging bod is in large part down to HYDRATION.
I know I’ve said it before and I will keep saying it until we’ve all drilled it into our brains but WATER is the source not only of life but of our beauty too.
You don’t just have to glug down glass upon glass of the clear stuff. Here’s a few handy tips below on how to get more water into your body so that your skin will glow this Xmas.
Eat your water
I’m a big fan of juicing and turns out so are the VS models too. Raw fruits and vegetables have a high density of water content. Chuck the following into your juices as they have over 90% water content: Watermelon, cucumber and celery
Hot water, lemon and little turmeric (it’s a magic anti-bloat ingredient)
Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, which helps to de-puff not only your face but your body too. Sprinkle into your hot water and lemon the morning after a big night before.
Staying fresh faced and lovely after wearing all that extra sparkly Xmas make-up means properly taking it all off before you go to bed. Forget what Kim Kardashian and Charlotte Tilbury say about how their other halves have NEVER seen them without their full face on – you absolutely MUST remove your make-up before bed if you don’t want to suffer the consequence of clogged pores and dull lack lustre skin. Try a Micellar water cleanser. Its one of the super models secret weapons and most cost only a few £’s.
Those VS models don’t just glug the stuff, they bathe in it too. Try a bath full of Epsom salts to help stimulate lymphatic drainage which will slim down and reduce your bodies water content. They’re also one of the cheapest beauty products around (Boots sell them for about £1.99).
So far, so good! Nothing expensive at all being recommended today for a change!!!
Just general water
Permanently have a bottle of water with you. No excuses. You can get some fab re-useable water bottles.
Sorry but there are also a few things to avoid if you want to keep lithe and lovely! Coffee and alcohol. They’re seriously dehydrating. I know it’s Christmas so there's on point asking you to cut back in December but how about you make it a New Years Resolution instead to try and cut back on both?
Next up I might write a piece about age appropriate knickers!!!!
