Sun protection
How many of us spent our childhood and teenage years in the sun from dawn to dusk? In recent years with the earths protective layer so depleted we must protect our skin. Exposure causes skin cancers, wrinkles, and dryness and accelerates aging. A good 30+ sunblock, and wide brimmed hat summer and winter are mandatory.

However, researchers are now saying that vitamin D from sunshine is essential for bone health, especially in regard to helping prevent osteoporosis, and, because it is not easily obtained through our diet, a little sun - about 15 minutes a day is important, before 11am or after 3pm is the best time for sun exposure to avoid burning and skin damage.

Hair and Beauty
Quite often you may feel less than attractive as you cope with all the changes which are happening; but a good skin care regime will help control signs of dry skin and the onset of wrinkles. How good do we feel after a facial or a visit to the hairdresser!!

Sit and stand tall - people will notice the change and compliment you.

Simply feeling good about the way you look will raise your self-esteem, and lift your mood, and the mere fact that you have had a treat to look forward to will add a sparkle to your day.

Also the health benefits of massage, reflexology, and yoga should be experienced to be believed! A new outfit, carefully chosen in colours, which enhance your skin tones, will do wonders for your self-esteem as will a new hair style, or colour. All these things will help enhance your self image and the new woman that you are becoming will bloom with added charisma, and a new vitality will be your repayment for your efforts.
