Sinead Desmond: My health heroes
The TV3 early bird shares her tips on what keeps her glowing.
KIEHL’S ULTRA LIGHT DAILY UV DEFENSE SPF 50 PA+++, €37.50
As a one-time sun worshipper I'm now all about the factor 50 on the face. And this works great under make-up too.
I get up so early I rely on coffee. Hence I'm always on the look-out for a healthier alternative that still offers a kick. Guayusa tea is it. It has more antioxidants than green tea and a good whack of caffeine too. GARLIC I have fresh garlic every day and I swear by its health benefits; unfortunately as a result I often reek of it!
BOBBLE WATER BOTTLE
I drink a lot of water and I used to buy a lot of bottled water so this saves me a fortune. Fill it up from any tap and it filters water as you drink it. I take it with me everywhere.
When I'm up in Strandhill surfing I'll always jump into one of Voya's seaweed baths afterwards and I always bring home a bag of their seaweed to use at home in the bath – great for skin and hair.
PONG CASE FOR BLACKBERRY
I worry about how much I use my phone. It just can't be good for your health. So I use a Pong cover on my phone which directs that nasty radiation away from my head and body.
CLARINS BODY TONIC OIL, €44.73
I think they sell one of these every few seconds, and I get why – it's all natural, smells great and makes any wobbly bits look and feel better.
First thing every morning I grab whatever's in the fridge – ginger, beetroot, spinach, carrots, etc and lash it into the juicer. An instant vit hit that gives me my five-a-day in seconds!
