Resolve to ’add’ something this year
The beginning of a new year means, for the majority of people, a chance to really change some habits that they may not have liked so much in 2012.
Lots of people decide to give up takeaways, smoking, drinks or chocolate.
As well as taking things away, however, the beginning of a new year is a great chance to add something new to your life.
Any form of exercise is a complete plus in kick starting your year as a healthy one. And yoga is also great for the brain.
As well as toning your body, stretching the major muscle groups of the body, improving metabolism and helping your flexibility and coordination, yoga is great at giving you real peace of mind.
Emma Catto, yoga expert from advice service Greatvine.com, noted: "Yoga postures and breathing encourage us to observe the constant chatter of the mind and to learn to detach from it.
"The postures give us stability and strength allowing us to be 'in our body' and have a sense of who we are in the world and stretching activates the parasympathetic nervous system which calms us down."
Yoga is a great addition to 2013, according to Ms Catto, if you want to learn how to properly relax.
Have a good skincare routine
It's easy to neglect your skincare routine, but it really is truly beneficial in keeping you looking youthful and fresh throughout the year.
According to Amanda McGillivray, founder of The Natural Skincare Company, a woman should listen to her skin and ensure that her routine changes as she ages.
"As you get older and your skin changes and becomes drier, you will need to use creams and serums which contain nutrients such as vitamin A, C and E, to help fight free radicals and keep those unwelcome wrinkles at bay," the expert advised.
Investing in an appropriate cleanser, toner and moisturiser is a must for 2013.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
