Save Money: Good Health

 

Series overview

 

Save Money Good Health is back for a brand new series looking at ways to spend it well on your health.

 

Journalist Sian Williams and Doctor Ranj Singh unpack how to get the best for your money when it comes to our biggest health concerns; right through from sleep and ageing to common illnesses and not forgetting some of those more embarrassing problems and weigh up what's in our shopping baskets from medicine cupboard essentials to the latest gadgets and off the shelf products.   

 

Episode 6

 

This week is all about skin and skin care.

 

Sian explores the latest trends in the multi-million pound anti-ageing industry. Alongside Melinda Dauer, a professor in biological chemistry at the University of Cambridge, she investigates what collagen, peptides and radicals actually are and the truth behind these products. Are any of them worth the hefty price tags? 

 

This week’s essential guide to vitamins and mineral supplements is also skin related with Vitamin A - also known as retinol. 

 

We'll also be continuing to shop around for treatments to those embarrassing problems so you don't have to. This time, we're tackling a skin condition that will effect over 80% of teenagers: acne.  

 

Plus, Dr Ranj continues to answer your big health questions. This week it’s anxiety.
