A (love) affair of the heart - Valentine's Day
Valentine’s Day, also known as St. Valentine’s Day honouring one or more saints named Valentinus, is a celebration of romance in many places around the world on February 14th.
The 'heart' has long been a metaphor for 'love'. Like love, its metaphoric depiction to the 'scalloped' symbol of today has been meandering, interspersed with an occasional seismic shift. The first known depiction of a heart as a symbol of romantic love dates to the 1250s with a French miniature of a kneeling lover offering his heart to a sweet damsel.

With Spring upon us, the sun shining, skies turning blue and that unmistakeable, crisp smell of renewal in the air, as we emerge from our winter slumber it is natural to believe that everything lasts ‘forever’. If only it were true!
Senescence, the term for the process of ageing, is influenced by genetic and environmental factors. In essence, after years of near-perfect cell renewal (generally 20 to 35 years of age) our cells display a declining ability to renew themselves. Production of natural chemicals critical to skin elasticity, firmness and renewal (eg. collagen, hyaluronic acid and co-enzyme Q10) declines and, with it, cell renewal fades. It is this process that produces characteristics we call ageing – wrinkles, decreased elasticity & firmness and reduced energy. Click image to continue
