The benefits of quitting for smokers
One healthy living tip that most people who smoke will have heard before is that they ought to give up the habit – but that doesn’t mean it isn't an important piece of advice!
Interestingly, though, one in four smokers taking part in one recent survey felt that money provided them with a bigger motivation to give up than the impact smoking had when it came to their health in the long term.
Furthermore, according to the British Heart Foundation statistics, close to one in three of the smokers involved said their kids or relatives hated the fact that they smoked.
One in four said they didn’t enjoy smoking as much as they used to as a result of the higher level of guilt they felt in relation to the habit. These statistics were released in the run up to No Smoking Day, March 13th.
Close to a fifth of the sample said they would be able to buy more things for relatives if they gave up their habit. And more than one in three felt guilty over how much of their money goes towards smoking.
The charity is encouraging people who smoke to consider the fact that they will benefit financially from giving up.
A special calculator tool that can be found online allows people to input the number of cigarettes they smoke, then find out how much cash they could save by quitting.
So by giving up a ten-a-day habit, for example, the calculator suggests someone could make a £1278 saving over a year.
That could be used to buy enough beautiful smelling herbal shampoo to last a very long time – something that will make your hair smell much nicer than cigarette smoke would!
"More than 750,000 smokers will attempt to quit on No Smoking Day on Wednesday 13 March so why not get ready to join in and reward yourself and your family with the money you save when you ‘swap fags for swag’," suggested Dr Mike Knapton, BHF Associate Medical Director.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
