FROM THE ED­I­TOR

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS - – ELIN

Can you be­lieve we’re al­ready al­most a month into spring? I don’t know about you, but I like to use a new sea­son as an ex­cuse to spend money on my­self, specif­i­cally new clothes and beauty prod­ucts (hey, why not, right?)

This year, I’m mak­ing a con­scious ef­fort to em­brace a more nat­u­ral ap­proach to beauty by switch­ing up a few of my sta­ple prod­ucts for chem­i­cal-free op­tions. And it seems I’m not the only one. The global nat­u­ral and or­ganic beauty mar­ket is grow­ing so fast it’s fore­cast to nearly dou­ble in size to $ 30 bil­lion by 2024.

Our cover story on page 4 charts the rise of the green beauty trend, while on page 6 you’ll find our guide to pick­ing the best clean prod­ucts to help you make the switch, as well as the la­bels to look out for.

Still on the sub­ject of spring, it’s get­ting harder to put off the in­evitable – try­ing on last year’s swim­mers and hop­ing for the best! The prob­lem is that our me­tab­o­lism slows down as we age and our di­ets need to change to keep pace, which makes that sea­sonal swimwear gaunt­let harder to face ev­ery year. Check out page 12 for the sim­ple nu­tri­tion rules that will keep you at your best in your midlife and be­yond.

And we keep the fo­cus on nu­tri­tion on page 14 with de­li­cious recipes that will take you right from break­fast to din­ner while giv­ing your gut the TLC – aka the fi­bre – it needs. En­joy!
