I recently had my yearly visit to the dermatologist. I go once a year because I have very fair skin and living in Australia puts me in the high risk category for skin cancer. Every dermatologist I have seen has told me similar thing. I should be living in Scotland, England, Norway or Alaska.

Something that we often neglect to think about is that the ingredients that AREN’T in a product can be just as important as the ingredients that ARE in it.
The flies have appeared and the mozzies have launched their first offensive of the summer but I love this time of year. Christmas is bearing down on us as we try and think of presents other than the traditional socks and undies solution.
