A breath of fresh air – how and why brides should boost their oxygen levels

Beds beach compressed

All brides would want to feel in tip-top shape on the big day, so keeping illness at bay in the weeks running up to the wedding is essential. Oxygen is one of the big factors in staying healthy and feeling well. However, with today’s increased pollution levels, caused through car exhausts, industrial plants and power station emissions, interfering with the amount of oxygen the body absorbs, the concentration of oxygen in the air we breathe is falling. Exact levels vary depending on where in the world you live, but this change in the air we breathe does not spell good news for our wellbeing. When the wedding day is approaching, bearing your oxygen levels in mind is essential.

A lot of brides unfortunately find planning a wedding extremely stressful, and not without good cause. There is a lot to plan, a lot of people to organise and in this day and age a lot of dietary requirements to deal with!

Brides very often turn to massages the week before the wedding and most swear that this does actually help. There is a lot to be said about destressing during all the weeks running up to the big day rather than only the week before.

Doctor warns of the dangers of using unqualified therapist for dermal fillers


Following a number of high profile cases, where patients have been left disfigured following dermal fillers, a leading specialist has called for tighter government control on unregulated clinics and therapists.

Dr Christine Cowpland, who runs the CMedical Aesthetic Clinic in Bristol, is pressing for the introduction legislation to safeguard men and women undertaking dermal filler injections. Unlike Botox, which needs a medical prescription to be purchased, dermal fillers are classed as 'medical devices', so in theory, anyone can buy and use them.
