There’s a simple skincare truth that is at the heart of making your skin youthful, fresher and healthier and they're not 'faddy' new ingredients that promise the world, and they're not exorbitantly priced either, it’s vitamins.
These natural compounds are as necessary to inner and outer health as water. The body only delivers a small percentage of metabolised vitamins, from food and drink, to the skin. Yet if skin suffers from a vitamin deficiency, it shows. Prematurely aged, unbalanced, dry, irritated or lacklustre skin issues can all be erased with a healthy flush of vitamin rich skincare.
The solution is regular skincare; vitamin enriched skincare. Applying vitamin enriched skincare topically is the quickest, most effective way to boost the skin’s radiance and health. Most skincare brands just don’t compare in the vitamin richness stakes. Synthetically derived chemicals do not have the naturally defined efficacy to flush out toxins and make deep changes happen at the sub-dermis level of the skin, to give your skin that all year round glow.
Vitamins can be used to target large areas of skin intensively. For example, in the fight against cellulite vitamin wraps, clay based treatments, massages and skin brushing with vitamin enriched products, can treat cellulite and sagging skin. The best natural skincare will offer high performance products with a cocktail of skin enhancing vitamins.
Vitamin rich skincare is a safe way to revitalise your skin all year round

I love Halloween, firstly because it's my birthday and secondly because it reminds me of the glorious days of making pumpkin lamps and watching my children's face light up when we switched of the lights and lit the candles inside the pumpkin.

From as far back as I can remember, whenever I came out of the shower or bath, the first thing my mum would say was 'have you creamed your skin'.
Now, it's a must for me to moisturise daily, as I feel totally naked if I ever have to get dressed and leave the house without the daily ritual of applying a moisturiser to my skin from head to toe. I have come to realise that this daily ritual can really protect the skin and stop the skin getting very dry. There are a number of reasons why we get dry skin, such as sun damage and the constant use of irritating or drying skin care ingredients, especially on the parts of our bodies that are exposed to the harsh elements such as our feet, hands and even parts of the face.

I first met Nasa is 2010, on my second trip Malawi. I was staying with friends and on arrival Nasa was there to greet me with the biggest, brightest smile I'd ever seen. She quickly removed my heavy suitcase from my hand and just said 'welcome'.
Over the following days, I noticed that Nasa (in the red African dress), who was 12 and much smaller than her age, was doing everything around the home.
As I observed her during the first few day, she seem to spend her days fetching water, cooking, shopping and cleaning, but some how she never seem to go to school.
After a few days, I asked my friend why she did not go to school.
