A recent story in the dailymail.co.uk states that almost three-quarters of over-25s didn’t wear sun cream as youngsters, and they feel they inherited this carelessness from their parents…this is not good for the body beautiful!
Some 40 per cent of grown-ups blame their mothers and fathers for sun damage caused during their late teens or early twenties, saying that they didn’t stress the importance of sun protection - particularly in the UK, according to new research.
The casual approach towards wearing the correct amount of sunscreen - coupled with the pressure placed on donning a ‘healthy’ tan - has meant Britons are ageing prematurely, with a leathery 35 per cent of Brits admitting they can see the effects of sun damage on their skin.
Over-25s are also blaming their sun damage on a general lack of education, with over half saying there was not enough information available about the dangers of excessive tanning when growing up.
But with 56 per cent of Brits currently admitting they don’t apply sun cream frequently enough, it appears there is a long way to go in changing their tanning habits.

Every year 100,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with skin cancer, and over 2,500 people lose their life as a result. 
Media medic Dr Dawn Harper, said: ‘The regrets of older generations concerning the levels of sun damage on their skin should spur them on to ensure that today’s youth take sun protection seriously. 
'The damaging effects are far more serious than just wrinkles or premature ageing, just ten minutes in strong sun can be all it takes for the sun's UVB rays to burn the skin and just one episode of sun burn can trigger melanoma. 
'Malignant melanoma is the fastest rising common cancer in the UK and is particularly high in younger people so it is vital that the older generations join us in our mission to educate the nation and ensure that staying safe in the sun doesn't cost an arm and a leg.'

was never really a great fan of anne hathaway until I saw les mis.  for me she was just perfect.  I think she’s also just perfect when you consider natural beauty, with little effort or ‘assistance’ she is strikingly beautiful

I have a little ritual, every morning,first thing, I have a glass of warm water and the juice of half a lemon.  I originally read about the benefits of a glass of water and lemon juice when I was going through my liver cleansing faze. Although I’m no longer actively cleansing my liver, I really enjoy it. It seems to kick start the day, gives a zing…

…this is so true.  I have a lot of dreams that I intend to see fulfilled. (I hate the term bucket list). Dreams and day dreaming are two different things and people need to realise that.  We can all sit and day dream, some of us for hours..but to achieve your dreams or goals, whether they’re for health, wealth or love takes commitment, a lot of planning and a certain amount of ‘me’, ‘me’. They don’t just happen.  So every now and then take some time to think about you and what you dream of and how you might just get it….well that’s my opinion any way
