How This Woman Became a Fitness Queen

  How This Woman Became a Fitness Queen Just watching her work out will exhaust you."My knees, my energy level, my back - they weren't working for me. I was in low-level pain all the time, but I didn’t even think about it because that was my normal," says Sarah, who spent much of her adulthood largely inactive. "The realization that my body was in a state where it wasn't thriving opened the door for me to see the other aspects of my life that were also unaligned and not thriving." Between her career and love life, everything was falling short of her expectations.

The new owners of UK cosmetics chain The Body Shop have said they plan to keep the legacy of founder Dame Anita Roddick alive as they look to revive the company.

Brazilian group Natura bought The Body Shop from L'Oreal for an estimated 1 billion euros ($1.1bn; £880m).

"We are much more similar to The Body Shop than L'Oreal," Mr Leal said.

"I respect L'Oreal, but they are a huge corporation," he added.

Mr Leal said: "Natura is a company that was born in the same way of The Body Shop almost at the same time.

"And we have this connection with sustainability, with ingredients from the Amazon, and we need a platform to go abroad."

Natura started in 1969 and has since grown into one of Latin America's biggest cosmetics groups.

Its success is based on a vast network of sales consultants and a culture of using local communities to source ingredients from the Amazon in a sustainable way.

The acquisition was announced in June and concluded last week.

The deal turns Natura into a global player, buying The Body Shop's 3,200 shops in 66 countries and 18,000 workers. In 2013, it also purchased Australian group Aesop.

We’re in Love with This Refreshingly Low-Tech Stovetop Waffle Iron

  We’re in Love with This Refreshingly Low-Tech Stovetop Waffle Iron On the list of weekend pleasures, good waffles rank right up there with strong coffee and perfectly rumpled linen sheets. You can enjoy them the traditional way, topped with fresh fruit and a generous drizzle of maple syrup, or a savory version, studded with chives and hunks of assertive cheddar cheese (my family’s favorite). No matter how you waffle, keeping it simple is best. In this case, we’re taking it old school with our Shop’s Stovetop Belgian Waffle Iron. Made of cast aluminum with a nonstick surface, this handy tool will quickly become your weekend warrior companion. Load it up with your favorite batter (plenty of options below), place it on the stovetop to cook, flip and repeat, and remove at your preferred level of crispness. When you're done, give it a quick rinse and store it away for the following weekend. See the waffle iron in action here: The Belgian waffle maker's larger grooves ensure ample crannies for all your toppings to seep into. We love this spicy maple syrup or a good berry compote, but go wild with freshly whipped cream or better yet, scoops of cold ice cream with warm homemade chocolate syrup.

L'Oreal bought The Body Shop from its original owners back in 2006, when the company was at its height.

But recently the brand has seen a drop in sales, with other competitors increasing their market share.

'Protect the Amazon'

Mr Leal told the BBC the deal is also a strategy for Natura to reduce its risks, as most of its sales are done in Latin America, where many countries have recently experienced recession, particularly Brazil.

By expanding its operations to Europe the group will be less exposed to the problems of the Brazilian economy.

The co-chairman of Natura also criticised Brazil for its mismanagement of resources in the Amazon, saying the country is not wisely using its natural wealth.

Brazil's President Michel Temer recently issued a decree to open up parts of the forest to mining activities. The decision has been suspended and is under review, after public outcry against the measure.

Mr Leal, who ran for vice-president of Brazil in 2010 as part of the Green Party, said the country should reconsider its economic activities in the rainforest.

"I don't think the Amazon is a place to do agriculture. You should use the already devastated areas for that.

"On mining, Brazil needs mining for sure, but you should really have a deep dialogue with society to establish the right rules to use the Amazon for those activities," he said.
