Thinking different about treating dry skin

To look after my skin my mantra has always been moisturise, moisturise, moisturise but there is nothing worse than when you are trying to get out of the door in the morning, using creams that do not sink in or leave your skin feeling greasy. I do not suffer from particularly dry skin but for my sister who has dry and itchy skin due to constant eczema flare ups, the problem of finding the right moisturiser is a nightmare. For many years she has been using heavy moisturisers but often bemoans, “after you have used thick heavy moisturiser try...

Stoptober 2017

Stoptober is a campaign that Public Health England runs for 28 days every October to encourage Britain to stop smoking.

Things to consider when buying a wheelchair

Whether you are looking for a wheelchair for yourself to take out and about when you get a little tired, or you are looking for one for a loved one – it’s important to know a little about wheelchairs. We’ve put together a handy guide to help you understand all of the things you may need to consider. Self-propelled or transit? If you want to get around on your own, choose a chair with push rims on the outside of the wheels. The larger the rear wheel diameter, the more comfortable the ride. So even if you prefer to be pushed, you might  prefer a self propel wheelchair. Transit wheelchairs are ideal for those who maybe do not have the strength to use the wheel rims and allow them to be pushed by a friend, carer or loved one. Electric or not? An electric chair means you’re able to travel further without your arms getting tired. However, electric chairs tend to be heavier and larger so consider access to your home and storage. Do you need it to be foldable? Foldable chairs easily fit into a car boot for days out and require less storage space at home. Solid tyres or pneumatic? Pneumatic tyres are ideal for uneven terrain and solid tyres are great for town use. Solid tyres also give extra peace of mind as they can’t be...
