“I like yoga” says Spice Girl Mel C
She’s known as Sporty Spice, so it seems appropriate that Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm - Mel C as she is often called - enjoys her exercise.
"I like yoga,” the powerful-voiced beauty recently told Hello Online, “I do Vinyasa flow and a bit of Bikram.”
She’s not alone in her enjoyment of the yoga, of course, with many people all over the world owning Yoga mats and getting a huge amount of benefit from the fulfilling and fun pastime.
So what other types of exercise does Sporty enjoy? She told Hello that she loves running in the great outdoors, and in fact has plans to take part in a triathlon later in 2012 - the second such event she’s undertaken, so it sounds like she’s truly living up to the nickname she was given back in the 1990s after she and her fellow Spice Girls burst onto the scene with hit Wannabe.
Mel told the website she’s been cycling, swimming and running as well as doing strength and circuit work in preparation for her forthcoming triathlon.
At present though, she’s taken a break from this exercise regime, saying: “I'm rehearsing every hour god sends."
The star is currently preparing to return to the role of Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar, the Andrew Lloyd Webber show which she toured arenas with last year.
She said she doesn’t stick to a strict diet but rather feels that food ought to be “as natural and as fresh as possible, especially in a year like this year where I'm very busy with work and I'm doing the triathlon.”
She she eats lots of protein, complex carbohydrates, vegetables and fruit and drinks lots of water, she said.
"I love to have a drink and I love cake but it's just about everything being in moderation, isn't it,” the sensible singer explained.
Mel said that she tries to go by a system where she is “good” about what she eats for 80 per cent of her time. She warned against total denial of treats, saying that diet was “all about balance”.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
