We live in a world packed with images of what a “perfect” body looks like, so it’s no wonder that poor body image is an issue that many of us suffer from. However, just because we may be feeling down about the way we look, it doesn’t mean that we can't overcome these feelings. Body image issues can start to affect our self-confidence, so it’s essential that we learn to see ourselves in a more positive light - as the amazing creations we each are!

Beauty is not just what you apply to your face, or how you wear certain products. It’s not fashion. It’s a composite of all of these things, and how they work together. It also is largely determined by how well you treat yourself. Helping beauty through dietary health is absolutely a reality, and it’s important to understand why. To begin with, you are what you eat, in every sense of the phrase. The things you digest become the physical composition of your body, meaning that it pays to eat the right things that make you feel comfortable in your own skin. Here’s how:
The signs of age catch us all eventually, and they can arrive sooner than you think. According to experts, your face starts to age in your late teens and early twenties (WHAT?). During this time, research shows that your skin and indeed face changes from being that of a teenager to that of a woman. The good news is that baby fat melts away around the time. The bad? It can be the first signs that you have started to get older.
Of course, ageing isn’t just about wrinkles and your skin losing its full elasticity. Ageing can hit you in a variety of different ways and show off various flaws all over your body rather than just one your face. Don’t forget, your nose is one of the only things that continue growing throughout your life. So, take a look at it right now and realise that in about thirty years it will be, somewhat noticeably, bigger. The question we need to ask then is how to handle the first signs of ageing. Should you cover them up, ignore them, embrace them or perhaps even take more drastic options. I have been fighting the good fight against aging since my mid-20s with botox, lasers and other treatments. There are a number of possibilities to consider here so let’s explore the choices.
