Let’s face it; winter is all about layers, comfort food and keeping warm, which generally involves consuming a few extra calories (thankfully hidden under all those layers). Come spring, the race is on to shed those additional kilos. And that’s no mean feat.
The ultimate rule: don’t obsess – that just leaves you feeling more hungry as all you can think about is the food you’re not supposed to be eating (and really shouldn’t be thinking about for that matter) – and don’t ban one certain food item (like chocolate, for example) – that just encourages you to want it all the more. Instead, indulge in a sweet treat that’ll keep you away from the cookie jar yet still satisfy those sugary cravings.
As the clock hits seven thirty pm (sweet treat hour, which is a little bit like witching hour) lock yourself in the bathroom and set to work with these lip-smacking lovelies that are all about ‘blissing’ out as opposed to binging.
Sweet and nutritious honey is jam-packed with nutrients, which help nourish and smooth skin. A relaxing soak will have you dreaming of tropical island escapes rather than triple chocolate cheesecake.
