    Coffee

    Getting up early and having that cup of java not only gives you a much needed boost to your day; that cuppa has bioactive compounds that protects your skin from melanoma (the world’s most common skin cancer).

    Researchers found that those who drink up to four cups of coffee had a 20% lower risk of developing malignant melanoma over a 10-year period than non-coffee drinkers.

    Watermelon

    Watermelon is loaded with LYCOPENE. “This antioxidant compound gives watermelon and tomatoes their red colour – and helps skin stave off UV damage,” says nutrition pro Keri Glassman, RD, founder of NutritiousLife.com.

    Researchers believe that watermelon contains up to 40% more of phytochemical than raw tomatoes; that’s the equivalent of an SPF 3. So use it to bolster your use of sunscreen when you’re having some fun in the sun!

    Pomegranates

    A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that higher Vitamin C intake lessened the likelihood of dryness and wrinkles in middle-aged women.

    Pomegranates are bursting with Vitamin C and other antioxidants! Also in the fruit’s stash: anthocyanins (helps increase collagen production, giving skin a firmer look), and ellagic acid (a natural chemical that reduces inflammation caused by UV damage).

    Blueberries

    Boost your skins radiant look by popping some of these berries! Blueberries supply vitamins C and E (two vitamins that tighten and brighten skin, and fights off free-radical damage), as well as arubtin (a natural derivative of the skin lightener hydroquinone.)

    Lobster

    Shellfish has anti-inflammatory properties that can help treat a range of skin annoyances (acne included). Lobster for one is super high in zinc, which accelerates the renewal of skin cells. In fact research shows that people with acne have lower levels of zinc than people with clear skin.

    Kale

    This long leafy nutrient filled veggie has in its arsenal vitamin K, which promotes healthy blood clotting, so the blood vessels around the eyes don’t leak; and loads of iron.

    To max out the benefits, eat this leafy green cooked, not raw.

    Eggs

    Eggs are a good source of biotin, a B complex vitamin that metabolizes amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein.

    Knowing that nails are also made of protein, having a crack at these protein filled foods will have you ready for a special beauty treatment and mani-pedi.

    Walnuts

    Omega-3 fatty acids (found in the natural oils that keep your hair hydrated) and vitamin E (which helps repair damaged follicles) are two secrets behind strong, lustrous strands—and these nuts are full of both. All you need is 1/4 cup a day.

    What's more amazing about them, walnuts are packed with copper, which will help keep your natural color rich. Studies show that being deficient in the mineral may be a factor in going prematurely gray.

    Avocado

    These rich fruits are high in oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid that helps skin retain moisture in the outer layer to keep it soft, plump and supple.

    Cantaloupe

    Beta carotene or vitamin A is loaded in Cantaloupes which is believed to regulate the growth of skin cells on your scalp and sebum in the skins outer layer. This keeps pores from getting clogged and causing flakes.

  • 5 Brand-New Ways to Wear Your Earrings

    When it comes to accessorizing, Sophie Quy is basically a ninja.

    The chic Brit is adept at layering delicate necklaces, stacking chunky rings, and—of course—rocking the arm party in that effortless why-didn't-I-think-of-that way that only cool girls can master (paging Kate Moss). So it's no surprise that she landed the plum gig as head of fine jewelry at posh retailer, Net-a-Porter—at only 30. (Like we said, a ninja!)

    Lucky for us, Sophie's going to help us earn our black belt in accessorizing. The task at hand: The ear party. An offshoot of the famous arm party (props to Leandra Medine for that one!), the ear party is basically a grouping of different earrings on one or both ears. Now, if you thought the trend was too rocker for you, think again. It can be totally delicate and pretty, incorporating baby hoops, simple studs, and—if you really feel like getting fancy—some pavé diamonds. Another thing: If you once thought you needed to have more than one piercing in each ear to pull off the look, no more. Designers today are creating styles that give the look of multiple piercings, when you've only just got the one hole in each ear (you know—the ones you got from the Piercing Pagoda, circa age seven).

    "People began re-piercing their ears and experimenting with earrings," Quy told us on a recent trip to NYC. She noted that earring sales are through the roof—and she wasn't even talking about pairs. "Over the years, fine jewelry has become more of a fashion accessory. We've seen a new generation of younger designers, such as Jemma Wynne, Delfina Delettrez, and Alison Lou creating really cool, unique earrings, as singles, not meant to be worn as a pair." But Quy admits that the ear party, like Pringles, can become kind of addictive. "Once you start, you can't stop," she mused. "People are really having fun and pushing the boundaries."

    Here Sophie herself schools us on how to get the look, whatever your style (or hole amount!) Read more at:cheap evening dresses

    Renuca Singh Thakuri is currently testing waters in the modelling world and is one of the fresh

    faces in the fashon industry.

    Did you always aspire to become a model?

    Ever since I was a child I was fascinated by the world of fashion. Yes, I’ve always wanted to be a model as far as

    I can remember.

    What has been your most memorable shoot so far? Why?

    My photo shoot with Bipin Maharjan is the most memorable one so far because his concept was fresh and new and working with him was fun.

    What do you like the most about being a model? What is the most challenging aspect about being a model?

    I love to be in front of the camera. The most challenging part is when you have to change your personality with

    every costume change. You can’t be static in only one look and sometimes adapting to changes does not come easy.

    What’s it like during a photo shoot? Do you get nervous?

    I love the camera and I don’t get nervous at all. But I do get excited and make mistakes!

    Who are your favourite Nepali designers? And who is your absolute favourite?

    My favourite Nepali designers are Bishwo Gautam, Subexya Bhadel and Tenzin Tseten Bhutia. Among them I love Bishwo Gautam’s work because his designs are more classy and unique.

    In your view what makes Nepali fashion unique?

    Nepali fashion is unique because the fabrics and designs are different from the rest of the world.

    Your dream modelling assignment?

    My dream job would be to walk at the Milan Fashion Week and work for the best international designers.

    What can we expect from Renuca next?

    You’ll see me in music videos soon.

    What do you plan to do this Christmas?

    I will be spending some time in the evening with a few friends at a party.Read more at:prom dress shops uk
