Health and Beauty
Weather conditions can have a huge impact on our bodies, from our skin to the inner workings of our immune systems which is why it's important to make some changes to your health and beauty regime as Britain edges ever closer to the coldest months of the year.
Our usual Wednesday morning blog from The Man About Town hasn't materialised this week because the blogger is somewhat exhausted having battled Man Flu for the last couple of weeks. Now, my sympathies go out to the male half of the human species because until recently, you've had to suffer not only man flu but other incurable male-only diseases (such as the inability to put things back where you got them from). And my sympathies also to all the women out there who have to live with said afflicted person.
In today's society, health and beauty products have become essential items for both men and women. These products, which span a number of different areas, can cost anything from a few pounds to several hundred! With finances continuing to be tight for many of us, keeping our finances healthy and looking good is as important as keeping ourselves healthy and looking good. Nevertheless, with some savvy thinking, it is achievable.

A single man in London who likes to spend, but who likes to save even
A long, long time ago in a land not so far away it used to
be the case that I could eat and drink whatever I wanted and maintain a body
that was more Johnny Depp than Johnny Vegas.
But, as the years go by and the metabolism slowly grinds to a halt, there
comes a time in a man's life when he has to face the facts – notably, if
something isn't done soon I'll be rejected from internal flights in the
USA (if you know what I mean).
The cold, harsh fact that I'm cultivating a beer keg is
accentuated by summer and the layers of clothes that conceal any excesses are
no longer available to wear. I know the
weather's not been great recently but it's not cold and, fingers crossed, the
UK summer will start sooner rather than later which means exposing one's self
to the rest of London and, more importantly, London's female population.
British Summer Time (an oxymoron if ever there was one) officially ended last weekend and this work week has been the first of many in the long winter months ahead where twilight is setting in before the work day finishes. But what price are we paying for that extra hour in bed we all enjoyed on Sunday morning? Well, at least 7 per cent of us are quite literally paying with our sanity according to a report in the British Medical Journal. So, could you be suffering with SAD?
Putting back the clocks has been an annual event in the UK since 1916
when the then-Government adopted a Daylight Saving system to save coal
by having longer daylight hours. Nowadays many people opposed to the
Spring and Autumn changing of the clocks not only argue that the energy
savings are negligible but are also bad for our mental health.
which stands for Seasonal Affective Disorder, is a type of winter
depression thought to be triggered by the clocks going back. Half a
million Brits are affected by the condition every year, suffering with
problems sleeping, lethargy, loss of concentration, anxiety and over
eating (it's no coincidence that companies like WeightWatchers see a massive uptake by the beginning of Spring).
