Editors notes

The sun is out and the holidays are upon us so there’s a reasonable chance you’ll be near some water. This month’s exercise slot dips a little toe into open water swimming – free, refreshing and, with a little bit of thought, safe as well as fun.

We’ve also taken a look at skin health – sunshine is a fantastic health and mood boost – but look after your skin. It’s wonderful stuff. And if summer for you means exercise, we’ve also got a section on stretching – too often neglected it can boost performance.

And if you’re having a stressy summer, it’s the perfect antidote. And last up, as summer makes us all a little body conscious, we’ve got some top tips on trimming your portion size – and shedding a few pounds on the way.
