How to feel good, look great and shine bright at the Christmas party

“Exercise in the morning is always good for you,” says Rachel Clarke, CEO of JBC Nutrition (www.jbc-nutrition.co.uk). “But in preparation for your big night out, not only will it wake you up and increase your energy levels, leaving you ready for the rest of the day, but it also leaves you with positive psychological effects. After you exercise, you feel instantly slimmer and this will help you to feel extra confident when slipping into that Christmas party dress.”

Feed your face!

We asked the experts to come up with their favourite foods for skin health and some top tips for how to incorporate them in your diet. It has often been said that what you put into your body is reflected on the outside, which is why a healthy diet is crucial to good skin, particularly as we get older. “Prevention is better than cure when it comes to anti-ageing,” says fitness and nutrition expert Alexandra Wilson (www.alexandrawilson.com). “And to do this effectively we need to address our health both internally and externally. Protecting your skin does not only relate to how you treat it from the outside but how you nourish from the inside too through a healthy lifestyle and wholesome food.”

The big chill

The temperature is dropping, the central heating is going on and we’re all digging our woolly jumpers out from the back of the wardrobe. Yes, winter is on its way, which means that we need to take extra care of our delicate complexions. “Winter presents particular challenges for our skin,” says Ian Taylor, operations manager with Green People (www.greenpeople.co.uk). “Exposure to cold, frosty temperatures with windy weather tends to damage the barrier properties of the skin, increasing its porosity. When this is coupled with centrally-heated buildings with very low humidity levels, it is no wonder that the skin tends to be more prone to dryness in the winter months.”

Skincare tips for kids

Calling all parents – here are our top tips for looking after the skin of your little – and not so little – ones!

Babies

According to midwife and baby skincare consultant Sharon Trotter when it comes to baby skincare, less is more. "Recent research suggests that it is safer to bath your baby in plain water for at least the first month of life (longer in premature infants). During this time your baby's skin matures and develops its own natural protective barrier. If your newborn baby has skin problems, for example milk spots, dry patches, or redness, you may need to be patient: these can take up to 12 weeks to clear.
