It’s summer! At least I hope the weather will be consistently warm when this issue goes to press, so we can all find more reasons to be outdoors, soaking up the sun, which is good for our mood and vitamin D levels. It’s also a lot easier to feel motivated to exercise before and after work when the days are longer and lighter. And speaking of being outdoors more, it’s that time when sunscreen becomes a regular fixture in our lives, but there are so many varieties that in this issue we’ve got part one of our in-depth look at sunscreen and whether you need such a high factor (p16).

GETTING BACK TO NATURE Taking 20 minutes or more each day to stroll or sit in nature has been found to significantly lower your levels of the stress hormone cortisol. The Michigan-based study found that spending 20-30 minutes sitting or walking somewhere you feel a ‘sense of nature’, at least three days a week, helps you experience the biggest drop in cortisol. So why not reclaim your lunch break and take it outdoors? You’ll not only digest your food better with no screen distractions, but return to work in a more chilled out state. 50% that’s how much cardiovascular deaths have fallen since 1994 thanks to improved treatments and public awareness.* GET MINDFUL WITH MUSIC Meditation is still hot news – so much so that even the BBC Proms is getting on board!

the sunscreen report

GO INTO ANY pharmacy or supermarket in the hunt for sunscreen and you’ll be met with row upon row of creams, sprays and lotions all promising to protect your skin. It can be mind-boggling just trying to decide what to buy. With our growing concern over skin cancer – it’s the most common form of cancer in the UK according to Cancer Research UK – the global sunscreen market has boomed and is projected to be worth around £19 billion by 2024*. But we all want to be able to enjoy the sun, and using sunscreen can help us in preventing long-term damage. ‘Sunscreen has two main benefits,’ says consultant dermatologist Dr Anjali Mahto ( and author of The Skincare Bible: Your No-Nonsense Guide to Great Skin (£14.99, Penguin Life). ‘Firstly,…
