This week I'm talking about how cosmetics can contribute to hormone issues. If you can't watch the video I've written some key points below.
I have always been a good sleeper but when I've got a lot on it can start to wear away at the edges. I also find that now TV is so "on-demand" it's easy to get caught up in a TV show without realising the time. Having a good routine helps me massively.
Many of us struggle to sleep and we all know how hard it is to do life when sleep deprived (especially if you're a parent). But sleep problems also effects our hormones.
In this episode I talk about 2 herbs! Cowslip and Primrose, with Fiona Heckles. She is part of a herbal company called Sensory Solutions which is made up of Karen Lawton and Belle. Karen has already been on the podcast and Belle is going to be on later this year. So I'll have collected all 3! Like pokemon.. They run an incredible course and it was a pleasure to speak to Fiona about these two herbs. They are so closely related but one is endangered in some areas where the other is not.
As with most things health-related the more information we get on the matter the more confusing it all seems. I’m going to try and simplify what has become a mine field of information; skin care and sun lotion.
So you've had a stressful week. You had to do some extra long hours to stay on top of things and make sure you've got enough money at the end of the month. The stress has you sleeping rough all week and you've woken up groggy every morning with barely enough energy to get up let alone make breakfast. So you reached for the coffee and got on with the day on an empty stomach. By the end of the week you're exhausted, accidentally falling asleep in front of the TV, maybe you feel like you're catching a cold too. Next week you'll get back into your swing of things.
