Best foot forward

    Oh dear! A surprising 50% of us are so ashamed of our feet we refuse to show them at all in summer. But if you’re short on time, try this quick-results trick: cover your cuticles by rubbing Vaseline on them. ‘It acts as a barrier to stop polish sticking so you’ll have a pro-finish, even when you’re in a bit of a hurry and a little slapdash,’ says Butter London’s Katie Jane Hughes.


    Perfect pedi partners: Scholl Velvet Smooth Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File, £59.99/5,999 points; Butter London Nail Lacquer only in Cake Hole, £12/ 1,200 points (11ml), and Cheeky Chops, £10/1,000 points (11ml); Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat, £5.99/599 points (13.3ml).

A right royal party


As the Queen celebrates her 90th, we’re wondering how she stays so sprightly. Here are our theories:

1 She gives back. As patron of 600 charities, she knows how good being altruistic makes ‘one’ feel. The health payback’s obviously working for her, too – it can help you live longer.


2 She ‘keeps calm and carries on’. She’s survived one world war, a bedroom intruder and an ‘annus horribilis’ without as much as a lip wobble.


3 She’s a fit-spiration. She still regularly goes for a trot on her horses and walks the corgis.


Happy birthday, Your Majesty! As part of the official festivities, the Queen is being honoured at a special Patron’s Lunch celebration (Boots is an offical partner) on 12 June. Find out how you can get involved at

Hot hair ingredients


No, not a hayfever treatment, this amino acid removes mineral build-up that dries out hair. Try it in Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect Conditioner, £4.19/419 points (400ml).



Yup, normally found in face masks but also great at absorbing excess oil and dirt. Try New L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Masque Pre-Shampoo Treatment, £5.99/599 points (150ml).



Just as it hydrates parched skin, this wonder vitamin also equals seriously silky, hydrated hair. Try OGX Reviving + Vitamin E Penetrating Oil, £7.35/735 points (100ml).
