try a new scent this summer

Summer brings a sense of happiness and renewed hope as temperatures rise and we can spend more time outside. This mood shift calls for a beauty celebration too. Just as you might swap darker make-up shades for bright pops of colour, how about upgrading your perfume wardrobe, too? There’s nothing lovelier than treating yourself to a new fragrance at any time of year, but with increased heat, smell is heightened, so there’s even more reason to indulge in a new scent. Ghost’s brand new eau de parfum, Orb of Night, is the perfect summer buy. With top notes of mandarin, cherry, almond and bergamot, it smells sweet at first, settling into a deeper fragrance with base notes of caramel, sandalwood and delicate white musk. It’s a must-have treat.…

Stress. Menopause. COVID-19. There could be lots of reasons that your sex life has taken a back seat recently. The good news?

testosterone replacement

Testosterone is currently only given as part of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). A blood test is not required to start treatment but it can be useful or used as a way to monitor the response to treatment. Currently testosterone is not licensed for use in HRT in the UK, however doctors can and do prescribe them safely, generally as a cream or a gel which is rubbed into clean, dry skin. It can take eight to 12 weeks to see an effect, but if there is no improvement after six months you will be advised to stop. If it works, though, there is no enforced stopping point. Studies have shown that women taking testosterone are more likely to report a benefit to their libido, improved arousal and ability to reach orgasm…

sugar vs fat: which is worse for your health?

This issue has been hotly debated for decades, so I thought it was about time I waded in to investigate. By health, I mean obesity risks, as well as the threat of diseases, such as cardiovascular syndrome, cancers, diabetes etc. By sugar, I mean sugar in its broken-down form – so it could have started life as wholegrain oats or as a chocolate digestive. But, by the time it reaches our blood stream, it has been changed into glucose. Glucose is transported to our cells (by insulin) to use for energy, not just moving around, but for the body’s processes to function. But if we eat a lot of sugar and we’re not very active that surplus glucose goes into fat cells. The more sugar we eat, the more insulin we produce,…
