Talking of haircare, this week Trish wrote a great article all about how your hair grows and changes as you grow and change. In it, Trish details the stages of her life and the hairstyles she had at various points:

“As a child I had weird, and wonderful hairstyles.  More often thank not, cut by my Mom. But, always cute, happy and sometimes funny. Teenage years were spent with long blonde hair,  which helped when going out to parties and meeting boys. My twenties was settling down into marriage with a variety of perms.  A very housewife like look.”

With all the research showing how medicinally beneficial health supplements are, we at Life Retreat are big fans. But for some people, taking supplements in tablet form is an impossible task. That’s why chewable supplements are such a great solution for so many.

Chewable Supplements

But there are other health benefits to chewable supplements, as evidence in an article this week, 5 Of The Biggest Benefits From Supplements:

“When you have trouble swallowing pills, trying to get them down can really hurt your throat. Fortunately, a chewable vitamin can protect your throat from the need to swallow large, uncomfortable, bulky pills.”

You can also take a look at our wide range of vitamins & supplements in our online store.


Are you using a coffee scrub? If not, why not!? The benefits to your skin if you do are huge, including tightening, improved circulation, improving dry skin, stimulating hair growth and much more besides.

This week, Samantha published an article all about coffee scrubs and the miracles they can do for you skin:

“Did you know that just as much as the intake of caffeine ‘wakes you up’ it also wakes up the skin externally. The lesser known benefits are the effects it has when we apply it to our skin.”

As it’s Friday, a lot of us around the country will relax and unwind today after work with a glass of wine. Traditionally wine, like all alcohol, has been seen as having a negative effect on your health.

Not any more.

Yesterday we posted an article entitled 10 Health Benefits of Wine. Check it out to discover things we bet you didn’t know about how drinking wine in moderation can benefit you in many different ways:

“Have you noticed that when you have had a few glasses of wine with your friends, you tend to take a trip down memory lane? This is due to a compound found in the skin of red grapes called resveratrol , which studies has shown, can improve memory and cognitive function.”

      HI Colin
      I agree. Especially at this time of the year, and it is good to start taking Vit C and B to prevent colds and flu.
