Take the sting out of sanitising!
Sick of sanitising your hands day in, day out with products that smell of pure vodka?
As it’s so important to keep our mitts clean, it’s worth treating our hands to a product that has phenomenal effectiveness against bacteria and viruses (EN14476 A2:2019), but also leaves them smelling fantastic too.
Enter Nilaqua. This British hand sanitiser specialist has just launched six exciting new fragrances, making staying safe a pleasure.
The scents include apple and jasmine, fruity wild cherry, soothing oatmilk and honey, fresh watermelon, revitalising cotswold meadow, and zesty pomegranate and passionfruit.
Nilaqua sanitisers have been tested as sporicidal, virucidal, fungicidal, bactericidal. They start working immediately and offer long-lasting protection, so you don’t need to worry about contamination from commonly touched surfaces such as door handles. They’re so reliable that they’ve been used by the NHS since 2016.
Plus, thanks to its nourishing formula, your hands are left soft and smooth rather than sore and cracked.

Help on your weight loss journey
We all want to love the skin we’re in. That’s why many of us try really hard to live balanced, healthy lifestyles that keep our bodies fit and strong.
However, some of us still struggle to lose weight and feel good about ourselves, and may want a helping hand.
Transform Hospital Group, the UK’s leading provider of weight loss interventions, medical aesthetics and cosmetic surgery, understands this, and has helped thousands of people reach their dream goal.
One of them is 49-year-old Jordan Legge.
Jordan was a serial dieter and struggled with her fluctuating weight. In 2007, with her 40th birthday in sight, she knew she wanted to make big changes. An advert caught her eye and led her to Transform Hospital Group.
With the help of a dedicated surgeon who was with her throughout the process, Jordan had a gastric band fitted. Later, she had breast implant and uplift surgery and a tummy tuck. Now she’s feeling happier and healthier than ever.
‘I honestly couldn’t be happier; I can’t fault Transform Hospital Group at all,’ she says. ‘All of my doctors were brilliant throughout my entire journey, they really got to know me and I completely trusted them.
‘It’s been a long journey but the end result has been more than worth it. For anyone thinking of surgery, I would tell them not to hesitate, it will change your life for the better.’

Kill the virus without killing the planet
The pandemic has worsened the single use plastic problem globally. Earlier this year, the River Thames recorded some of the highest levels of microplastics for any river in the world.
One of the biggest contributors to this is disposable 3-ply masks. But some of the reusable ones are just as problematic; many claim to kill bacteria and viruses, but this often means they’re coated in harmful chemicals and metals, which eventually leak into and damage the environment.
However, the clever people at MaskNow have teamed up with Livinguard Technologies to bring to market the reusable Pro Mask: a mask that constantly deactivates viruses without harmful chemicals and metals such as silver.
This mask is able to do this thanks to Livinguard’s scientifically proven textile technology, which is made with a positive charge that deactivates the negatively charged cell walls of viruses. This has been tested by the Freie University of Berlin and other leading European institutions.
As a result, you don’t need to disinfect it after each wear as it’s constantly destroying micorganisms. Plus, because it’s reusable for extended periods of time and washable, one MaskNow Pro Mask (or SuperMask), which is available in multiple sizes for the whole family, replaces the equivalent of 210 disposable ones.

Intrigued by CBD?
CBD seems to be a bit of a buzz word of late, but what is it – and why the hype?
CBD products are made with CBD oil, otherwise known as cannabidiol. This is an extract from the hemp plant, but it doesn’t have any psychoactive effects.
The reason it’s so popular is because many users believe it can help with all manner of wellbeing issues, from easing anxiety and physical pain, to improving skin – while some people just really love the flavour!
TV presenter Jenny Powell and former Love Islander Charlie Brake (pictured) are huge fans.
Whatever it is that intrigues you about it, you can find a wealth of different CBD products at Green Stem CBD.
This Surrey-based company only uses the best quality CBD sourced from sustainable farms in Colorado, blending it with natural, aromatic flavours such as Seville orange, jasmine and rhubarb to create great tasting and smelling products.
From fragrant beard oils, moisturisers and muscle balms to flavoured vapes, there’s a little something for everyone – be it for you or as an alternative gift for someone special this Christmas.

Look after your mind and your memories
Major milestones, such as a fiftieth birthday or a child’s wedding, can prompt people to contemplate the golden years that they hope will lie ahead.
They may also look forward to retirement so they can make the most of the special connections they have with a long-time partner or grandchildren.
Maintaining brain health is key to making the most of these connections, which is where Ginkyo Mind & Memory can help.
This clever supplement contains a uniquely potent Ginkgo Biloba extract that helps to maintain memory with increasing age and preserve cognitive function.
Eminent community pharmacist Sultan Dajani is a Ginkyo advocate, explaining ‘Ginkgo Biloba is extensively used to maintain brain function and is believed to work by increasing blood flow as well as having neuro-protective antioxidant effects.’
Ginkyo can also help strengthen your body’s defences, so you can fully engage with and remember life’s most cherished moments.
