Healthy eating on a budget

I think that it can sometimes be a common misconception that eating a healthy diet is an extremely expensive way. To some extent, I suppose this could be true if you purchased large quantities of organic meet, superfood and specialist products however, buying natural wholesome ingredients such as: vegetable, grains and pulses can actually turn out to be really affordable; often even more so than eating lots of processed food and meals. Like with most things, the cost of a healthy food shop can vary greatly depending on numerous factors such as: where you shop, the amount of food you’re buying and the types of products you by. Today we wanted to talk about some of the ways that you can stock your fridge and cupboards with a selection of healthy ingredients, whilst still being more friendly on your budget.

Top 5 winter skincare products

One of the things that nearly always affects my skin is the change in weather over this time of year. I find that as soon as the colder weather starts to kick in, my skin tends to become a lot dryer. We all know that the food that we put into our body can have a huge impact on our health and how we’re feeling, but what about what we put onto our skin? Things that you put onto your skin can also be absorbed into the body, so it’s also important to consider the products that you’re using as well! We recently had the lovely ladies from A’kin in store to tell us a bit more about their wonderful skincare products and also use a skin assessment machine to show things like skin damage from UV rays and dehydration. Different parts of your skin show up in different colours depending on the health of your skin, so it’s a really interesting experience! Don’t worry if you didn’t manage to pop in this time, we will be having events with them in the future, so keep your eyes on the newsletter so you don’t miss out on anything!
