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

Spring is springing!

Another season is almost upon us – but winter’s certainly taken its toll, beauty-wise. Do check out our Beauty Bible Loves… for lots of replenishing treats for hair, body and faces, to put back what central heating and wind (including Storm Doris!) have taken out.

We’re busy right now totting up all the scores for the Beauty Bible Awards 2017, which will be revealed later this spring on this site. Meanwhile, we’re excited to be bringing you all our own fab ‘finds’, based on a combined 50 years (and more!) beauty editing. You’ll also find Sarah’s Health Notes, alongside beauty and wellbeing features which we hope you’ll enjoy.

It’s worth pointing out again, we think, that everything you read here is entirely down to our own opinions – or those of our diligent testers. We’re almost alone as a beauty website of this size in not taking sponsored posts or being paid in any way to be nice about products. And that makes us pretty unique in the beauty arena.

We’d be way, way richer if we did indeed accept hefty fees for mentioning products. But we’d rather you knew that everything featured across this whole site gets there on its merits, as a service to our dedicated readers to help you take a short-cut through the beauty jungle – not because of a contractual agreement.

Meanwhile, do keep in touch, let us know your tips, questions, ideas – we love hearing from you. Hand on heart.
