Skin Health Magazine Issue #6 / Winter 2018 - Page 4

EDITOR’S LETTER H appy new year to all our readers! Can you believe we’re on issue six of Skin Health Magazine already?! The time has flown by and now we’re at the start of another exciting new year. If you’re anything like me you’ll have con- sidered making some new year’s resolu- tions, and may have even made a few too. At the end of each year I take time to reflect on what I’d like to change or achieve in the year that follows. I stopped making negative resolutions a long time ago. Quit- ting this and stopping that never really worked for me. So I started focusing on positive goals and objectives I wanted to achieve instead. This year I’m focusing on just one goal, to be kinder. It’s not that I’m not kind, it’s more that I think I could make more of an effort to be kinder more often. I try and instil this in my six-year-old daugh- ter all the time, so why am I not doing this myself?! It might sound simple, and honest- ly it really should be, but we lead such busy lives we often don’t take the time to be kind to one another. So 2018 is my year of kind- ness. What will it be for you? If you’re planning on taking more time to read Skin Health Magazine then you’re in for a treat. We have an abundance of news and advice packed into this issue on everything from switching up your skincare for the new year, how to select the right skincare when you’re suffering with eczema, and why you should definitely be using skincare containing caffeine. We welcome a new guest writer, Dija Ayodele, from the Black Skin Directory, who delves into the conditions that commonly affect darker skin tones. And you have the chance to win one of three Intraceuticals Lip Masks. If you suffer from dry lips during the winter this mask works wonders to ease the dryness and discomfort, and provides the added bonus of helping to soften the appearance of fine lines around the mouth! Best of luck with your resolutions, and happy reading. HELEN ELLDRED EDITOR-IN-CHIEF ISSUE #06 | 2018 | 4
