Fireworks & bonfires: Do take care

Fireworks are delightful inventions that bring fun and enjoyment to everyone (except maybe dogs and old people). But they’re also small dangerous missiles packed with gunpowder that fire ‘payloads’ at hundreds of miles an hour into the sky to explode in a (hopefully) controlled and artistic way. Without sounding like too much of a party pooper, it’s the same story for bonfires. Despite the fact that for millennia they’ve kept us warm and provided us with a focal point for getting together,… Read more

5 Natural Beauty Tips for Vibrant and Healthy Eyes

2017 was a year that bore witness to a ton of health and beauty trends that came and went. And like most years, many of those trends were much stranger than they were beautifying. Smudged lipstick to achieve that ‘just-kissed’ look. Jade rollers, a jade paint-roller type tool, to ‘rejuvenate’ your face and neck. And bleached eyebrows to, well, make you look super creepy, to name just a few. As usual, some of the trends stuck, but most of them, I’m looking… Read more

Autumn is the season of colours

Colours are all around us. And should we stop for long enough to notice them, we realise they make our world not just look incredible, but our experiences a whole lot richer. They are, after all, what enable us to become awestruck at such scenes as a sunset, a rainbow lorikeet, a Henry Matisse or Van Gogh painting, and the bloom of the cherry blossoms in spring.

Every day, we hear about things that are bad for our health. The latest one is 5G. Because it uses higher frequency waves, it requires more transmitter masts that are positioned closer to the ground. This is triggering the long-debated question about how radio waves affect us, in particular in relation to certain cancers. Although such concerns to our health come and go and are hard to back up with hard evidence, the ones that relate to the health of our eyes… Read more

How to look after your eyes on holiday this summer

Spending a few hours in the sun is one of the best shortcuts to looking and feeling younger and healthier. But without taking the proper precautions, it’ll quickly do the opposite: damaging the body and leading to macular degeneration, sunburn, skin cancer, and perhaps worst of all, wrinkles. This isn’t good news for anyone not wanting to return from their holidays looking older than when they went. Fortunately, however, to protect yourself from the sun you don’t need to rock up to… Read more

Why Summer After Laser Eye Surgery is So Much Better

What comes to mind when you think of summer?

But in a world where many of our professional and personal lives revolve around screens, this is especially true today. It’s essential that our eyes need some rest from time to time.

Arghh!! Hayfever and contact lens woes

The sun is high in the sky and the flowers are in bloom. It’s the first few days of spring — one of the best times of the year.
