Inspirational Woman: Sigourney Cantelo

Beauty editor, expert blogger and vlogger, Sigourney Cantelo was a magazine beauty editor for many years, most recently as Beauty & Health Director at Vogue Australia.  Now with her own beauty blog, Beauticate, she’s also a contributor at The Grace Tales as well as mum to 2 year old Max. Here she shares her health and beauty secrets. As well as your amazing blog/vlog Beauticate, you also contribute to other publications like Popsugar and The Grace Tales. How do you juggle all this with a small child? Creativity, chaos and the occasional tantrum (mine, not Max’s)!! No really… I find I have to just fit in work wherever I can.

New year detox – get juicing!

Even the healthiest of us overdo it over the holiday season, and that’s totally fine. It’s the season to eat drink and be merry after all and there’s nothing wrong with letting your hair down and enjoying yourself! After New Year celebrations are over, start the year afresh and cleanse all the naughtiness out of your body, while giving yourself a bit of a vitamin and mineral boost. Homemade juices are the best and tastiest way to get in your daily vitamins, so if Santa didn’t get you a juicer for Christmas, then maybe use your Christmas money to go to the sales and get yourself one. A good quality, easy-clean (there are many that are NOT easy!) juicer is one of the best investments you’ll make when it comes to feeding yourself with healthy goodness. Our all time favourite New Year pick-me-up juice is the fabulous Beetroot, Apple, Carrot and Ginger juice. As you know beetroot is one of our key ingredients and we LOVE it.
