The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS - – ELIN

I love spring but less so the sneez­ing and itch­ing it brings. This week we fo­cus on the two main health ir­ri­ta­tions that come with the chang­ing of the sea­sons: al­ler­gies and skin sen­si­tiv­ity.

On page 8, we re­veal the seven things you didn’t know about al­ler­gies, in­clud­ing the fact that flow­ers aren’t a trigger or that pro­bi­otics can help to keep them un­der con­trol (who knew?).

Mean­while, our re­port on page 6 delves into the truth about sen­si­tive skin. Did you know it’s only classed as ‘sen­si­tive’ if you have a di­ag­nosed con­di­tion such as eczema, der­mati­tis, rosacea or pso­ri­a­sis? If you don’t but no­tice skin ir­ri­ta­tion as the sea­sons change, it’s con­sid­ered ‘sen­si­tised’. We look at the key dif­fer­ences and best ways to keep symp­toms at bay.

Else­where in this is­sue, our must-read quiz on page 12 re­veals what you should eat and how you should ex­er­cise based on your body type. De­vised by sci­en­tists, it’s a fool-proof way to set habits that re­ally will help you slim down this spring.

Mean­while our in­trepid well­ness trend-tester Emma Markezic tack­les a my­ofas­cial re­lease class on page 10. The lat­est way to get a mas­sage, it uses ex­er­cise balls and rollers to loosen up your mus­cles like never be­fore. As some­one who’s been brought to tears by a foam roller in the past (true story), I couldn’t help but wince as I read it. En­joy!
