Do you get confused when choosing a moisturiser?

Do you get confused when choosing a moisturiser?

It must have been so much easier when it seemed the only choice of moisturiser was the tub of cold cream which always seemed to sit on my mother’s and grandmother’s bedside table. I don’t think there was any consideration for whether you had dry or oily skin but it...

Are you a bath or shower person?

Is Your Back Letting You Down? Most of us look forward all year to our Summer holidays,especially if we are going to sunnier climes. We’ve tended to our feet in preparation for the sandals.
