What not to eat…

What to eat if you want glowing skin

The Telegraph, 15/03/16 Iris Clot

Gee, I dunno The Telegraph… Cillit Bang? Lightbulbs? Uranium?

Or perhaps I could just swallow the feeling I get when I see page after page after page, day in day out, that implies women should glow or shimmer or radiate youth, lest we be dismissed as dessicated lady-husks.

Anyway there’s definitely a hashtag worth of retorts to this bumf. Here we go… #GlowingSkinDiet

    Well I certainly won’t be swallowing mind numbing, patronising advice such as this, that’s for sure. My (almost) 60 year old skin has never “glowed” as far as I recall (except maybe a few times in the 70s glitter era) and so far noone has been traumatised by it to my certain knowledge.

      I totally can’t believe that you haven’t realised the trauma your non-glowing skin has caused to those around you (men, obviously, women don’t count). How dare you!

      I agree entirely and it’s always young women in these ads never men or older women!!

    I think us women are just being silly and faddy thinking we can just eat food that will give us our properly womanly glow. We should instead be hoovering the house properly as our important daily exercise, and scour our faces with Vim when we’re cleaning the bath.

    Then we can spend all the money we’ve saved on a nice meat dinner for the man of the house.

      You’ll never get a nicer glow (and a tanned appearance to boot) than from rubbing leftover fat in dish after cooking a roast onto your skin. Makes every second of slaving over a hot stove worthwhile. Two ways to a man’s heart for the price of one :).

    Mind you, it might help if there’s a power cut?

    Daily reader here, and I must say I’m appalled by all these lily livered tweets, glo-sticks? roast baste? floor shiners? That’s amatuersville: Girls you are just not trying hard enough…as I type, I am wired into an electrolysing machine, zapping my facial muscles with up to 120v electricity each, covered in electrolysis fluid, sipping a rejuevanating infusion of monkey stem cells because I know, that if I don’t, at the age of 50, I might as well live the next 45 years in a body bag.

    For a glowing skin how about Colchester oysters courtesy of Bradwell nuclear power station emissions?
