Wonderful wonder foods!

Wonderful wonder foods

Our friends over at Stop the Pop have jumped on board our cause and done us a massive favour by utilising their expert nutritional knowledge and researching which foods can provide our skin with vital added sun protection! To check out the list of foods that we should all be eating this summer, read their post at: http://stopthepopcampaign.wordpress.com/2013/10/11/food-skin-protection-burn-soothing-follower-request/

So, after our recent (yummy) discovery about dark chocolate we decided to look into this a little more!! We found out that tomatoes – one of our favourite salad additives – contain an antioxidant called lycopene which works as a natural guard to UV for our skin, but is something that our bodies only really get through consuming tomatoes. The BBC conducted an experiment to attempt to decipher how effective the consumption of tomatoes were in practically protecting our skin. Their findings proved that indeed, those who consume a certain amount of lycopene from tomatoes did have an increased tolerance to UV rays!

After all this food talk, we know what will be on our shopping lists this summer!

GOOD MORNING

GOOD MORNING

With lots going on in the sporting world and on Sydney’s social scene, I’m wondering, has anyone woken up on this lovely Monday looking like this as the result of a botch spray tan job from the weekend past?? I’m feeling healthy, fresh, and ready to take on the week after making sure I lathered up on the suncream while enjoying the warm weather out on the beach these last few days 🙂
