Out with the old, in with the new – and that doesn’t just mean the end of 2007 and the start of 2008, it can also mean out with the old bad habits and in with a new health and beauty regime.

But we all know it’s not always easy to stick to those good intentions and how often have those New Year Resolutions been in tatters before the end of January?

If you’re setting yourself some health and beauty goals for 2008, let Mentholatum help you stick with it, with its fantastic range of products.

Resolution: I want to get fit and I’ll begin by walking every day

Mentholatum says: That’s a great start and soon you’ll see the benefits. But when you start to exercise you will probably find you have a few niggling muscular aches and pains and stiffness – that’s when you’ll find Deep Heat Heat Rub can help, with its penetrating warmth which helps stimulate circulation, relax stiffness and reoxygenate tense painful tissues. And for hard to reach areas, there’s Deep Heat Spray.

Resolution: I’m going to the gym three times a week

Mentholatum says: It’s regular exercise that will keep you fit, but when you step up the activity, you’re bound to feel a few niggles, so keep these Mentholatum products with your gym kit:
WellPatch Deep Heat Patches – place them on the skin at the site of your backache, joint stiffness or sprains and strains and feel the soothing warmth for up to eight hours. (They’re also great for period pains)
*Deep Freeze Cold Gel 2% w/w – the clear, non-sticky gel helps relieve the aches and pains of overworked muscles, tendons and joints as you massage it into the affected area

Resolution: I will get into the team this year

Mentholatum says: The harder you play, the more likely it can be that you suffer an injury, so keep some Mentholatum products in your sports bag to help you deal with minor knocks and get back on the pitch. Make sure you have these sporting heroes in your bag:
Deep Heat Heat Rub – it doesn’t just tackle aches and pains and stiffness, use before and after exercise.
And don’t be without Deep Freeze Spray for an instant cooling burst of pain relief if you suffer a sprain, cramp or bruises
WellPatch Deep Freeze Cold Patches – use them on sprains and strains instead of an ice pack or after ice. Place them on the skin at the site of the sprain and enjoy the cooling relief for up to three hours.

Resolution: I won’t let the cold and rain stop me running:

Mentholatum says: You may be able to brave the worst of the British weather, but there’s no need for your lips to suffer. The thin skin of our lips doesn’t have natural protection, so wind, rain and cold can leave them chapped, sore and even cracked. Mentholatum’s Softlips lip balm is part of the world’s best-selling lipcare family and its richly moisturising formula keeps lips soft, smooth and supple whatever the weather. Even better, you can choose from sophisticated French Vanilla or voluptuous Vitamin Enriched versions.

Resolution: Even if I get fit, I’ll still have to do something about my spots

Mentholatum says: If it’s not your body, but your skin that is letting you down, check out the OXY range of spot treatment and prevention products. There’s a whole range from cleansers and washes to wipes to help keep spots at bay and two great treatment products – **OXY On The Spot for spots and pimples and **OXY 10 for more stubborn spots and acne. New to the range is Emergency Zit Blitzer - a radical anti-spot gel which starts reducing the size and redness of spots in 4 hours!

Resolution: I must do something about my bitten nails – that’s the resolution I break every year.

Mentholatum says: That’s probably because you haven’t tried Stop ‘N Grow, which has not one, but two super-bitter ingredients which will soon stop your nails from travelling to your mouth. It’s been called ‘willpower in a bottle’, so this year you could be looking at longer, lovelier nails before the end of January.

Mentholatum products are available from pharmacies, including Boots stores, and many supermarkets nationwide.

Always read the label.

*Deep Freeze Cold Gel contains Racemic Menthol.
**OXY 10 and OXY On the Spot contain Benzoyl Peroxide
