This is how she stays looking fresh-faced

When Victoria Beckham posted a picture of all five Spice Girls together last Friday, fans immediately went into overdrive – and not just because of the possibility of an on-stage reunion. Followers were quick to point out how youthful the five women looked – in particular Mel C, with her fresh face and glossy hair. So what’s the secret to Sporty Spice’s youthful glow? These are the beauty tips she swears by…

A healthy attitude to food

The 44-year-old has previously admitted to suffering from an eating disorder as a teenager. However, she now says she has developed a healthy attitude towards dieting and treats. “I have my 80/20 rule where through the week I try to be healthy – and then at weekends I’m a lot more relaxed,” she told the Mail in 2014.

Plenty of exercise

There’s a reason she was known as Sporty Spice. Mel C has always been open about her love of exercise and movement, and says she is a big yoga fan. “Exercise is a very important part of me. I’m a very physical person,” she told French magazine MODZIK. “My mind-body connection is very strong.”

Subtle surgery

The singer has admitted to having botox, but says she’s determined to keep it to a small amount. “It can be a slippery slope. I’ve done musical theatre and I want to be able to move my face,” she told Good Housekeeping last year. “I’ve had bits of botox done. I do like it, but it does freak me out because I don’t want to turn into that person that everyone thinks looks like Michael Jackson.”

Nutrition supplements

Mel has said she takes Lumity anti-ageing supplements, which contain a combination of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and ingredients such as turmeric. “I was very excited to discover Lumity – I’m really surprised how well I’ve been sleeping and how my energy is up at such a busy time,” she says.

A good foundation

Since becoming a mum to daughter Scarlet, Mel has said she’s never without a decent foundation coverage. “Sleep is often interrupted, to say the least, and it’s an ideal way of covering up those bags the following morning!” she told Mail Online.
