The truth about legs ….

85 per cent of women have cellulite.
20 per cent of women in their 30s have varicose veins.
Varicose veins affect half of people aged 50 and above.
Up to 55 per cent of women are affected by thread veins.
Women get thread veins as early as their mid-20s.

Ever wondered how celebrities of all ages seem to have traffic-stopping legs? Good genes help, but they also exercise, swear by the latest treatments and indulge in a little trickery. Catherine Goddard explains how it’s done

What do you envy most when it comes to other women’s looks? A gravity-defying bosom; white, impossibly even teeth; a pert bottom? For me, it’s the legs that have it. Nothing causes me to go green quicker than a blemish-free pair of legs paraded in a short skirt.

Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Aniston, Penny Lancaster, Tina Turner – the hottest legs belong to women of all ages. Golden and toned, their pins march through the advancing years seemingly unscathed by cellulite or veins.

So how do celebrities defy Mother Nature?  The truth is that a lot of time and money goes into achieving perfection, not to mention the assistance of an airbrush. Without the same attention, real women’s legs don’t always fare so well.

In fact, embarrassment over the state of their legs causes many women to cover up, concealing their problem legs with trousers and ever-lengthening hemlines.

Mottled complexion

An even, lightly tanned skin tone is the ideal when it comes to legs. Sadly, a mottled ‘corned beef ’ complexion is more often the reality. Exercise is the key to getting blood pumping, giving skin a natural, healthy glow.

Tanning cosmetics can also help – including instant formulations and self-tan, with a gradually developing, longer-lasting result that doesn’t streak like it did in the old days. Finally, look out for body creams with a hint of tan or shimmer, and foundations for the legs and body.

Cellulite needs exercise

A common complaint is cellulite – fat that pushes against connective tissue, causing skin to appear dimpled. Women suffer from cellulite more than men, and genes, pregnancy, age and weight can worsen the problem. 

The most effective way to reduce cellulite is to get rid of excess body fat through exercise. Massage and dry body brushing are also recommended to improve circulation and lymphatic drainage, while a detoxing diet, including plenty of water and minimal coffee, alcohol and fat, can help flush out toxins.

Unsightly veins

Tangled webs of unsightly red spider and thread veins and bulging purple varicose veins commonly appear on the legs of older women. But, in some cases, they can also affect people in their 20s.  Thread veins can be a result of too much sun exposure, while spider and varicose veins are caused by faulty valves in leg veins, which fail to pump blood back up towards the heart, allowing it to pool in the legs. Some people inherit this weakness; others develop it as a result of hormonal changes, pregnancy, menopause, obesity and jobs involving prolonged standing or sitting. In addition to the cosmetic problem, symptoms might include a heavy sensation in the legs as well as flare-ups of hot, itchy irritation.

For relief, taking regular exercise helps, as does spending time with legs elevated and wearing compression stockings.  There are also strategies that can be employed to rid legs of the network of veins without going under the knife.

GIVE YOURSELF A LEGS MAKEOVER 

There are lots of new ways to improve the appearance of your legs – some a lot more celebrity priced than others. I’ve divided them into three problem areas with the addition of some purely pampering products.

Did you know…?

Youth is no defence against cellulite – young mum and singer Charlotte Church and skinny actress Mischa Barton have not escaped the invasion of ‘orange peel’. Celebrities get varicose veins, too. Both Sex in the City’s Kristin Davis and Britney Spears have reportedly sought treatment.

Eliminate puffy eyes and droopy bags forever!

Puffiness and dark bags under your eyes makes you look worn out. Discover some effective treatments for reducing puffy, tired-looking eyes.

Dark, droopy bags under your eyes can make you look dramatically older and exhausted — even if you’re not. Fortunately, there are some effective home remedies and successful medical treatments that can help minimize puffy eyes and dark bags. Here’s how to play down that unpleasant puffiness:

Causes of Puffiness and Dark Bags Under Your Eyes
Most people find that there’s more than one cause for their puffy or tired-looking eyes. Here are some of the most common:

Aging.
As you get older, the skin and muscles around your eyes begin to weaken, making it easier for the fatty tissue beneath the skin to redistribute and for the skin to sag.

Allergies.
Itchy, swollen eyes are a common allergic reaction.

Fluid retention.
Hormonal shifts, a lack of sleep, or even just eating salty foods can cause you to retain fluid, leading to puffy eyes.

Heredity.
If your parents had puffiness under their eyes, you may be more prone to developing the same condition.

Home Remedies for Puffy Eyes or Dark Shadows
Many home treatments can temporarily minimize puffiness and dark areas under your eyes. Here are a few ideas to try:

Use makeup to create an illusion. Arbonne do an amazing highlighter – give it a go! Use a very small amount of a lighter-colored concealer on the puffy, baggy under-eye area to camouflage the dark shadows and make the puffiness look flatter.
Use cold compresses. A little cold can go a long way toward reducing swelling around your eyes. You can use cold packs or ice packs, cold slices of cucumbers, teaspoons that have been chilled in the freezer, or tea bags that have been soaked in ice water.

Get good rest. Try to get enough sleep (about seven to eight hours), and sleep with your head elevated to keep the fluid from collecting under your eyes.

Keep your allergies in check. Avoid allergy triggers and take antihistamines to help prevent your body from reacting to allergens.
Avoid salty food. Stick with foods that won’t cause puffiness.

Medical Treatments for Worn-Out or Puffy Eyes
A dermatologist or plastic surgeon can provide a more permanent fix to a puffy eye problem. Consult with SecretSurgery if you want to try one of these options:

Dermatological treatments.
Laser treatments and chemical peels can help tighten up the skin and make the dark areas under your eyes look lighter.

Wrinkle fillers.
A plastic surgeon can inject fillers like Restylane and Juvederm right under the under-eye hollow to even out the area. The effect usually lasts for about eight months.

An eyelift.
A doctor can tighten up the under-eye area by melting away the fat with an electric probe, then pulling the skin tight. It’s a surgery that can be done relatively quickly — and provides effects that last for decades.

What you should eat & what you should avoid ……

Take Selenium as an antioxidant and protect against muscle breakdown. Take Zinc for male hormone and healthy functioning of your entire body. Vitamin C is great for rebuilding and repairing. Carbs are great for energy and muscles. Carbs are bad as they make you fat. Take good fats. Don’t take bad fats.

Confusing, isn’t it?

So what is the answer? What should you take? What shouldn’t you take? How much of each? What if you are missing out on a nutrient? What if you are not? How do you get that perfect, healthy body?

The real truth is that there are no correct answers to all your questions. As you live your life and as we (the human race) live longer, we realize that we don’t know the answers and that every little thing on this planet does some good or bad. If we knew the answers there would be no diseases and everyone would look perfect.

To truly have the best shot at a healthy, vibrant body, you need to follow a simple rule and have 2 words as your guides: Healthy and Balanced. Healthy Healthy means staying away from known bad foods and eating/drinking more of the good foods. This means staying away or reducing the intake of: • Sugar • Salt • Saturated fats • Junk food: greasy burgers, chips, fast food • Artificial foods: chocolate, crisps, muffins, colas, cookies • Alcohol • Drugs

It also means taking in more: • Water • Fruits • Vegetables Balanced This is the missing key and where you can truly make a difference to your health, well-being and body. Balanced means taking in a whole host of foods that grow here on earth and can do good for you. We may not yet know about the benefits of them or find out in your lifetime but they are here for a reason.

If you have a known allergy or intolerance, then you need to stay away from the offending foods. Otherwise you need to open up your mind and try a bit of everything. We are only just finding out about so many foods and their benefits and instead of trying to read every bit of new research, do yourself a favour and include a little bit of everything in your diet when you can.

Just look at some of the recent “good” foods in the news: • Pomegranate • Acai • Beetroot • Tofu • Nuts and seeds • Berries

Do you eat them regularly? Or at all? They have been around for generations.

Try a healthy and balanced diet every day to the best of your abilities and open your mind to new ingredients and foods that you would ordinarily not eat. This means not seeing a salad as just greens but add things like nuts, seeds, berries and fruits. Not seeing a meal as just meat and carbs but adding a whole variety of vegetables and even fruits to your meal. Don’t just try one thing, really go for it! If you are going to try nuts & seeds, try Pistachios, Brazil nuts, sesame, sunflower seeds and so on.

There are no conclusive answers. What is conclusive is that following a healthy and balanced diet is your best shot at a long and vibrant life in your “very best” body. Start today.

Pucker up

Berry lip colours are back in vogue.  Angelina Jolie and Michelle Williams have been rocking the natural make-up look with bold, statement lips.

 

 

Don’t be tempted to overdo colour, however – neutral eyes and cheeks work best with berry lips.  We love Arbonne Lipstick in Scarlet, this long-wearing, feather-resistant lipstick glides on easily for full coverage, and intensely conditions and hydrates lips.

It is worth noting that orange-reds are best for pale and olive skin tones, but most people can wear warm red hues.
