Halloween isn’t just about ghosts and monsters, the change in season can also bring more health tricks than treats. The health specialists at This Is Pegasus, share their tips on how to prevent them giving you a fright this Halloween.



Drooling blood

If you’re spitting blood after brushing your teeth it can give you more than a fright. Spitting blood is a common early indicator of gum disease, a leading cause of tooth loss, and as many as 83% of us are showing symptoms of the condition. Gum disease is caused by plaque but the good news is that you can keep plaque at bay. The NEW Corsodyl Daily Toothbrush (£3.49) helps remove plaque with its soft bristles that are designed to be gentle on gums. With twice daily brushing, the Corsodyl Toothbrush provides everyday gum protection and helps prevent gum problems





Rattling Bones

We get less exposure to sunlight in the winter months and the government is concerned that sun starved Britons could be at risk of bone disease such a Rickets. They are so concerned by this threat that they’ve recently recommended that we all consider taking a 10microgram Vitamin D supplement during the winter months. To help everyone meet their vitamin D needs Holland & Barrett has a range of Mushroom Vitamin D supplements which are even suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Packed with high levels of vitamin D the range starts from £19.99 for 30 capsules





Flaky Skin

During the winter months your skin is put under added pressure from the cold weather. If the thought of dry or flaky skin makes your skin crawl visit Lloyds Pharmacy for a free skin analysis test. Their analysis machine can measure elasticity, hydration, oil (sebum), pigmentation, pH, temperature and can even tell you if your skin age is in line with your biological age. To see find your closest skin analysis service visit




Breaking Into A Sweat

As the temperature drops we tend to bundle our bodies into layers of jumpers, coats, hats and scarves in an effort to keep the shivers at bay. If this causes you to overheat and sweat you’ll want to have Perspirex Comfort to hand (£8.49). This hard-working 5 day protection antiperspirant minimises sweat and reduces odour. Free from perfume its comfort skin care system Cpx also minimises the irritation that is often associated with extra effective antiperspirants, making it perfect for first-time users and those with sensitive skin





Scarily Bad Breath

Garlic might keep the vampires away but it is also one of foods commonly associated with bad breath. If you’re worried about the horror of halitosis you’ll be pleased to hear that NEW AQUAFRESH INTENSE CLEAN, (£3.00) can keep your mouth feeling fresh for up to eight times longer than regular toothpaste. The power behind the toothpaste lies in its cleaning micro-crystals which are five times smaller than a regular toothpaste. With twice daily brushing, this allows them to get between the teeth to fight plaque, kill germs and remove stains more effectively





Creepy Crawlies

Autumn is a key time for creepy crawlies and one bug you won’t want to encounter is head lice. If the sight of them makes you twitchy the best course of action is to deal with the problem head on to stop the infestation spreading further. Hedrin Once is clinically proven to kill lice and eggs with just one 15 minute treatment. Available from Lloyds Pharmacies in a spray gel (60ml £7.14) and liquid gel (100ml £10.20) it has thicker gel formulation which contains Penetrol to aid penetration into the louse egg






Nightmare Sleep Cycles

We can all be vulnerable to fatigue during the winter month and this is because as it gets darker earlier our brains release the hormone, melatonin, which is linked to declining daylight. If the change in light has made your sleep cycle a nightmare Dr Stewarts Varian Plus Tea, £2.35 for 15 tea bags can help you to brew up a naturally peaceful night’s sleep. An infusion of valerian, lime flowers and hops this tempting tea has mellow taste that can help you to drift off to sleep naturally





Festering Fungus

If a fungal nail infection has made your toes curl and left you with unsightly brittle and discoloured nails then now is the time to get targeted treatment for your toenails. Canespro Fungal Nail Treatment Set is clinically proven to remove the infected parts of the nail in just 2-3 weeks. No other fungal nail product works faster. So whether you’re prepping for a Halloween party or are thinking ahead to the Christmas party season, Canespro (£29.99) will help get your feet ready for any occasion



Hellish Headaches

If you find yourself nursing a headache from hell taking an ibuprofen tablet could help to relieve the pain and reduce inflammation. Care Ibuprofen 200mg tablets (£2.14 for 24 tablets from Independent Pharmacies) and Care Maximum Strength Ibuprofen 400mg tablets (£2.14 for 24 tablets from Independent Pharmacies) provide effective and strong pain relief for a number of symptoms including muscular pain, backache and rheumatic pain. These tablets are suitable for children over 12 years old and adults but are not suitable for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Not to be taken for more than 10 days


Frightening feet

Only 5% of people think about their feet in the winter months, however only 3% of people are happy with the way their feet look. If your feet are bad enough to scare people this Halloween, foot care specialist Flexitol is here to offer great advice and professional foot care every step of the way. Flexitol Heel Balm (£5.69) is a 25% urea based product available over the counter.  Its non-greasy, moisturising formulation is medically proven to hydrate dry, cracked heels and feet
