Here’s what’s trending right now at Health & Beauty HQ – plus your chance to win a luxury spa break for you and a friend! Helen Daly, Editor
Step away from the hairdryer as this season’s hair is a bit of a washout! ‘Dual-textured locks, as seen at Thakoon and Paco Rabanne, are big news,’ says stylist Mark Hill. ‘So create the look you’d get if you were caught in a drizzle! Apply a wet-look gel to roots, then comb through to add texture.’ Try Boots Essentials Wet Look Styling Gel, £1.05/105 points (250ml), with Mark Hill Just Tease Me! Wide Tooth Comb, £3.69/369 points.
Teenager slumped in front of the TV after school again? It may be due to a major energy crash. A recent study found that 30% of 16 year olds go more than six hours without food between lunch and their evening meal, leaving them too tired for after-school activities. ‘Encourage nutritious snacking – such as a yoghurt – to keep up energy levels,’ says dietitian Judy More. If only there was a way to improve their mood swings, too!
The number of people who could benefit from a hearing aid. If someone you know is talking so loudly on their phone that the neighbours are answering back, suggest they nip in store or go to boots.com/hearingcare for a free online hearing test.
Manicurist to the stars Lorraine Griffin popped in to share her catwalk know-how
Free styling ‘Use a polish with a wide, flat brush [we love Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polish in God Save The Queen, £5.99/599 points, (9ml)]. Turn the applicator sideways and paint a curve on the tip of your nail with the thin side of the brush. Made a mistake? Clean up with a fine brush dipped in acetone.’
Little helper ‘If your hand isn’t steady, use tape or stencils to section off the tip [try Striping Tape from Wah London The Nail Edit Liquid Metal kit £23/2,300 points; or Nailene Perfect French Tip Guides, £3.05/305 points], before painting.’
Can’t find the exact colour you’re after? Mix yourself a bespoke nail shade using the seriously smart Palette London Create Your Own Nail Paint Collection, £25/2,500 points.
