How to achieve glowing beauty - from the inside out by Nutritionist and Naturopath Shoba Jay Whilst cosmetic surgery can take care of superficial lines and wrinkles, it's hard to compete with skin that has that unmistaken natural glow; the type of skin that glows from the inside. Skin is a dynamic organ that performs many duties including absorption and protection, regulating body temperature and excreting waste from our bodies. As one of our largest organs, it's important to recognise the impact that sleep, exercise and diet have on our complexions. The top 5 tips for Gaining a Natural Glow 1. Sleep more Sleep is important on many levels including memory consolidation, recovery and repair. During sleep the body releases melatonin, a powerful antioxidant that aids in cellular repair. If you're losing quality time during sleep, try turning off electric blankets and devices (including mobiles and laptops), blocking out any visible light and using ear plugs (especially if you're sleeping with a snorer). 2. Eat the Right type of Fats Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to support skin health by reducing inflammation and supporting the structure of cells. Dietary Fatty Acids can help to regulate fluid balance and retain moisture leaving your skin looking healthier. Ideal examples in the diet include extra virgin olive oil (to be used in salads), virgin coconut oil that can be used for cooking and using fish and krill oil as supplements. 3. Improve your bowel movements Waste products from your body must be excreted everyday to avoid toxins re-circulating back into the blood. Drinking 6- 8 glasses of water and eating fibrous foods such as globe artichoke, organic broccoli and LSA (Linseeds, Sunflower and Almond meal) every day may help to promote these essential bowel movements. An extra tip on Hydration: Add 10ml of chlorophyll to your water. Chlorophyll is the green pigment made by plants during photosynthesis. It is rich in Magnesium and its alkalinity can help to tone down blotchy red skin. 4. Embrace the Beauty of Anti- oxidants Anti-oxidants are protective molecules that can support the structure of your skin by helping to neutralise free radicals (molecules that have the ability to damage the structure of proteins including collagen and connective tissue). You can support your skin by eating brightly coloured vegetables and fruits that are rich in anti-oxidants. These include berries, beetroot and green leafy vegetables. 5. Pump up your circulation Exercise oxygenates the blood and delivers nutrients around the body to help you feel energised and stay calm. The increased circulation from exercise helps to give your skin a rosy glow by dilating blood vessels in the face. During exercise the body uses cortisol to metabolise energy and is one of the most effective ways to take the edge off a stressful day. What can you do? Although these tips set the foundation to good skin health, more complicated skin conditions may require closer attention. For information please visit Melbourne Boulevard Pharmacy. Shoba Jay is a qualified Nutritionist and Naturopath, available for general advice and private consultations.

LOCAL LIFE Everyone benefits from a strong community. HAVE YOU USED THESE IMPORTANT WORDS LATELY? The six most important words

“I admit I made a mistake.” The five most important words

“Thank you.” “As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

eing active within our society helps us feel less lonely, live a more interesting life, find friends, stay healthy and feel happier.


We feel worthwhile, connected, included, important, significant, appreciated and safe. Being active within our community inspires us, brings success in business and helps us find our way in life. With today’s rapid explosion of online social media, entertainment, virtual worlds, email and chat, it is easy to become engrossed in a computer.

It is a modern day reality that people turn to their computers for connection to others.

This can be a great thing but it can also go too far and we can become detached from our local, physical community. Online communities have become very real, significant and help millions feel more connected, but they must not take the place of our physical community relationships. It is also common for people to find jobs online and to move to different locations around the world. This uproots us and detaches us from the community we grew up in, forces us to make new friends and establish ourselves in new locations.

Understanding the importance of community and becoming more active within yours will greatly increase your quality of life.
