Back to work today? These tips will get a pep back in your step…
Starting your day off right with a good breakfast is a simple way to maintain a healthy weight or even shed pounds. The key is to eat within the first hour of waking up to prevent your body from going into starvation mode, which slows metabolism. Reach for energy-sustaining foods such as steel cut oats made with low-fat milk and topped with dried plums. Milk adds a boost of protein. Dried plums have potassium
and are a good source of fibre, which can help curb appetite until it’s time to reach for lunch. Soluble fibre and other compounds in dried plums have also been shown to decrease blood cholesterol levels. Your body will thank you for this morning ritual.
The oxygen facial is the skincare treatment favoured by the Victoria Secret Fashion Show skin specialist Mzia Shiman. The treatment, which combines a serum of oxygen, hydrochloric acid and antioxidants, exfoliates and hydrates skin for a more youthful looking complexion. Oxygen Lift Facial, €100 at Thérapie.
The mid-morning slump can be challenging without a big ol’ cup of Joe, but why not substitute those caffeine cravings with a refreshing, cleansing tea? Pukka Cleanse Tea helps maintain a healthy glow with a unique mix of ingredients, including nettle, peppermint and dandelion, €3.99 at Nourish.
