We’ve seen an influx of chilblains over the past few days due to the sudden cold! .
Chilblains can be a painful condition on the hands and feet when experiencing sudden temperature changes, e.g. from hot to cold OR cold to hot. .
They usually appear as a red/purple mark on the tips of the toes and fingers and can be painful and itchy.
Keeping the hands and feet a constant temperature helps prevent them from occurring. .
If you have them, make sure you keep the area moisturised and seek advise if they are causing excessive pain or look like they have turned in to a wound or are infected.
Read our blog post from the Autumn to find out more about dealing with the cold and preventing issues with your feet (and hands)
If you are concerned about your feet book an appointment with our podiatrist who can help!

Today is National Handwriting Day, and the Oratory Preparatory School have kindly shared their top tips for encouraging younger children with their handwriting.⠀
Handwriting Top Tips⠀
It is important that children hold their pencils correctly and ensure their posture is correct.⠀
✏️ Pencil held between fingers and thumb⠀
✏️ Middle finger provides extra support⠀
✏️ Feet flat on the floor⠀
✏️ Head up, not resting on the desk or hand⠀
✏️ Paper at the correct angle⠀
Help and encourage your child:⠀
✏️ Remind your child to use their ‘helping hand’ to hold the paper while they write⠀
✏️ Encourage your child to write on a line⠀
✏️ Let handwriting play a part in your family’s daily life, for example:⠀
Making lists and labels⠀
Keeping a family diary⠀
Leaving notes for each other in busy households⠀
Keeping in touch with distant friends and family⠀
Designing and making home-made notepads and greeting cards⠀
✏️ Provide somewhere where your child can work⠀
And finally don’t forget - praise, praise, praise!⠀

Missing the shreds. Gotta stay focused on the goal. If you find yourself constantly changing from one thing to another you need to regularly remind yourself of what you are trying to achieve and buckle down and stick with it. Consistency is key to most things.

A common misconception about being vegan is that you can’t wear make up because it is tested on animals or contains animal derived products... Well I’m here to inform you that being vegan shouldn’t stop you embracing make up and that there are so many vegan and cruelty free alternatives out there. -
A rule I tend to follow is that if a company or product IS sold in China then IT IS tested on animals, that’s right... MAC, Avon, Benefit, Clarins, Estée Lauder, Maybeline, Elizabeth Arden among many more are ALL guilty of testing their products on animals. -
Unfortunately for companies to sell their products in China it is a legal requirement in China to have ALL products tested on animals, some companies are very clever at manipulating the truth about whether they test on animals to suit their own agenda of selling products, for example MAC has never directly answered the question and always states that they do not test on animals, however, they do not test on animals themselves but DO pay other companies to do so because “we love our fans and never want to exclude them anywhere”... even in a country that requires animal testing for products to be sold. -
I have used cruelty free and vegan make-up here for this entire look to show you that you can still be GLAM without the cruelty. 🐇💖✨ Lipstick - @katvondbeauty - Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Nosferatu
Foundation - @UrbanDecay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra definition Liquid Makeup.
Mascara - Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.
Eyeliner - @BarryM Khol Pencil Navy Blue
Highlighter - Illamasqua Beyond Powder - Daze
