It's no secret we are addicted to our phones. That message alert brings excitement, anticipation, sometimes good news and sometime bad news. The physical reaction our bodies can have to just this simple sound, is something quite un-natural.

I'll put my hand up first and declare I'm an addict. And perhaps like a true addict, I also want to declare I'm p...

With the human race living longer than ever before - it's a natural desire to experience a long life on the proviso you're healthy, and ideally - with skin that doesn't necessarily show it!

Jamaican woman, Violet Brown, is currently the oldest living person in the world. At 117 years old, she says the secret to a long life is hard work.

"I was a cane farmer. I would do every work myself...

Hoorah! Warmer times are finally upon us. Welcome back, Spring! 

For many of us it often means panicking about your bikini body, but today I want you to consider how incredibly cleansing it can be to make your home clean and mean! 

Spring Cleaning is thought to have origins in marking the start of the Persian New Year, which falls on the first day of the season. Many cultures around the...

Think about your day today. What did you do? Can you even remember what you had for breakfast? Scary, right? 

In our so-called 'Fast-paced' world we've created, no one could argue against the fact that most of us are caught up in this fictional state of mind. Constantly full of thoughts about the past and the present, none of which serve us in the present moment (unless we're...

In the 'Anti-ageing' world, there's a lot to address if you're invested in it. But most of us seem to prioritise symptoms like wrinkles and sagging skin. Sorry to add yet another step to your beauty regime - but what do you know about pigmentation (or melasma), and are you treating it? Some research indicates it can make you appear up to 12 years older - eek! 

Pigmentation is discoloura...

If you've ever suffered from acne, you might be aware that certain seasons can affect its degree of severity. There's been plenty of studies on this, but the jury's out. Some conditions are worse in Winter, and some in Summer. But if you're going through a bit of a Winter jam right now, let's check out why it might be happening, and furthermore how to address it! 

Your face is one of th...

It's nothing ground-breaking that super sexy skin requires a holistic approach to health, but how much thought have you put into gut health? Personally, I'm a huge fan.

We have trillions of bacteria inside us, and most of these reside in our gut, collectively known as Microbiome. When these are out of balance, its negative effects can be widespread. 

Many millions of nerves lining your...

The Winter Solstice may have passed, but that doesn't mean we can stop pumping our bodies with immunity-boosting, metabolism-loving nutrients. Eating right is a lifetime commitment, not a seasonal one, dear readers!

Have you ever truly considered just how important the saying is 'You are what you eat'? 

Feel high after a delicious coffee, then feel like a delicious nap? Eat a 3pm sugar...

When I was asked to submit a blog entry on my results with Dr JW's Topical Anti-Wrinkle Cream, I thought 'No, it's too early to make comparisons and see a noticeable difference - I've only used the product for about 5 weeks!'

Reluctantly I took the photo, and placed it alongside a photograph with a similar angle, taken 4 weeks earlier, (I'd been using it for one week at that time) and h...

Summer bodies are made in Winter. And I don't want to freak you out, but it's kinda Winter now. 

So pull on those leg warmers, get moving and above all, get sloughing!

"Sloughing?" you say and wince? Such delightful imagery I know, but because our skin renews itself every 28 days, we need to ensure we're creating the most silky soft versions of ourselves.

Here's some fabulous techniques...
