Grand day out
Sunday Funday, a charity carnival by the Hong Kong Adventist Hospital Foundation promises a day of healthy family fun.

Drowning in drink
If you had to brave alligators and piranhas to get to the ignition, perhaps you would think twice about driving when drunk.

Brown fat benefits
What's the best way to boost your metabolism and burn more fat? That's the holy grail for metabolic researchers and slimmers. US scientists are at the forefront of some of the most promising research in the field.

True blue
Hard to believe but Kiehl's popular Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion (HK$170) is now 50. Since the formula first debuted in 1964, it has attracted celebrity fans, sold nearly 900,000 bottles in the past five years and even found a home in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

Lift for tired skin
Stress, hormones and age can take their toll on your skin. Daily moisturizer just isn't enough to reverse the damage. You would need a heavy-duty serum.

Lunchbox treat
Instead of fizzy drinks for your kids, how about pure coconut water? Jax Cocohas launched Jax Coco Kidz (HK$53 for six).

A colorful triumph
Color blindness is no barrier, even for an artist. Color-blind people can be designers, animators or even directors - and Merlin Crossingham is proof of this.

Thirst quenchers
A sorbet sounds just the thing for summer - especially if it is The Body Shop's Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet (HK189). The lightweight moisturizer contains millions of microscopic spheres which act as reservoirs holding hundreds of times their weight in water.

Wired for fitness
Fitness is just one click away. Newly launched HealthReach, a lifestyle management smartphone app, aims to empower individuals, with their families, to attain better health through improved management of exercise, diet and health measurement regimes.

Buzz off, bugs
Come summer and hardly anyone budges without their Para'Kito insect repellent band (HK$160 for one band or clip and two pellets).
