Are you finding that your skin is not looking it’s best right now? Being locked away with the heating on is not so great for the skin. You can always put a little bowl of water under each radiator, this gives the air a little more humidity. Remember to drink lots of liquids as this is the best tonic for skin and get lots of fresh air.
We have also found this fab breakfast from The BBC Good Foods Healthy Magazine (link at the bottom).

Put the chia seeds, milk and half the mixed seeds in a medium bowl and stir. Cover and transfer to the fridge to soak overnight.

Divide the chia seed mixture between four bowls, then spoon over the apricots, blueberry compote, remaining mixed seeds and a drizzle of honey, if you like.
