Here is a small selection of health and beauty stories - from salons to personal training, Liverpool takes its well being very seriously.
Journalist and scriptwriter Michelle Langan shares her health and beauty secrets...
Name: Michelle Langan
About me: I love writing and I love animals. I hate animal cruelty, and wish more cosmetic companies would ban animal testing. I don't think any animal should have to suffer just for the sake of beauty.
Favourite skin saver: Nude Treatment oil - smells lovely and makes my skin so soft.
Colour essential: Red lipstick
Signature fragrance: Marc by Marc Jacobs or Naughty Alice by Vivienne Westwood
Must-have salon treatment: Any Rodial facial at Nicola Harris Beauty - Bliss!
Ultimate indulgence: A bath in Aromatherapy Associates bath oil. It always lifts my spirits.
I get my hair done: I have my highlights and cut done at The Priory Salon in Anfield - the girls are a friendly bunch and know what I like.
Best budget buy: Cherry almond shower gel 79p from Home Bargains - smells just like marzipan!
Lovely luxury:I love getting a massage when I think I deserve a treat. My favourite way to unwind.
Beauty sin: I'm good - apart from squeezing the odd spot!
I exercise: I love yoga but don't go as often as I'd like to. Dying to try hot yoga.
I eat: No meat for me - everything else I'll try, but haven't eaten meat since I was 18.
Top beauty tip: NEVER EVER go on sunbeds - they are so bad for your skin and so ageing. Faking it is much better.
You'd never guess but: I'm not 21 anymore ;)
My handbag essentials: Mascara, lipgloss, hand lotion, perfume.
