Health with Sarah Stacey

Keep up to date with advice, information and tips on health and wellbeing for body, mind and spirit from Sarah Stacey, Health Journalist of the Year 2012.  

THIS MONTH ON BEAUTY BIBLE

We say: Enjoy the sun…

Experts now agree that it’s important to get ten to 15 minutes unprotected sun exposure on most of your body, three times a week. That’s to top up levels of vitamin D, which is vital for health and wellbeing.

We love looking honey-golden but the human body is really not designed to roast – so this month you will find our favourite products for safe sunning, from self tanners via sun preps to face savers and hair masques.

And you’ll find our usual cosmetic cocktail of prize draws, Beauty Clinic, tips and interviews to keep you on the beauty inside track.

Have a lovely May.
