MOST of us have suffered with allergies at some time or another and according to Allergy UK the number of people affected is on the increase.
This week is National Allergy Week and Natural Nation, a new health shop in Wrexham, is offering advice and samples on natural and organic skincare products.
Natural Nation, which is based in the Central Arcade, sells a wide range of natural and organic products, and has an organic coffee bar.
During National Allergy Week owners, Jenny Derose and partner Jason Spoor are offering the public the chance to try out natural and organic skincare products that can be gentler on sensitive skin. There will also be information to take away and free herbal teas available.
An allergen can be any substance that enters the body causing the immune system to overreact, resulting in unpleasant symptoms.
Jenny said: 'With an increase in synthetic chemicals in the environment, it is no surprise that many people are experiencing skin allergies or sensitivities.'
Events will be held at Natural Nation, 14 Central Arcade, on Friday and Saturday, May 20-21, between 11am-3pm. Call Natural Nation on 01978 264488 for details.
