@3_martini_lunch: Should you eat before or after exercise?
Both - protein & carbs before, but high protein if it's just weights.The more intense the exercise the longer a gap before your workout. And do top up protein levels straight after to repair muscle as soon as you can - but avoid sugary sports drinks.
@miss_glassy: My skin is not great at the moment - will taking any kind of vitamins/supplements help?
If you take just one thing make it flax seed oil, especially during colder months. Hydrates, protects and soothes skin from the inside out.
@rubytrubes: I'm having a detox January and doing quite well. What treatment should I reward myself with at the end of the month?
Got to be a full body massage. Go on a recommendation if you can, but I love Aromatherapy Associates for a bit of pampering.
@flossiecrossie: I get little white spot like lumps. How do I get rid of these?
Sadly this is one for the experts - not pots of cream - my advice is to go to a reputable clinic or facialist - try Skinesis.
@coffeewithkate After a recent long illness my hair is looking dull & dry. What's the best way to revive my limp locks?
Do use pre-conditioners (more intense than post wash versions) & a good brazilian blow-dry (check formaldehyde levels).
