Environmental aggressors are thought to be responsible for up to 80% of skin ageing, and we’re not just talking UV rays – pollution is another major factor. ‘City skin is exposed to a daily facial of fumes, dust and smoke,’ says dermatologist Dr Dendy Engelman, ‘but there are ways to help protect it.’ New Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart SPF50 Hydrating Shield, £55/5,500 points (40ml), features an anti-pollution complex that aims to neutralise the impact of these stresses, while Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Oil-Free Oxygenating Gel Cream, £29.50/2,950 points (60ml)*, has ‘clean-air’ technology to help keep skin nourished. Take that, smog!
…that’s how many days a year working parents are forced to take off to treat their kids’ head lice! This nit season, don’t lose your head (or your job): try Boots Electronic Head Lice Comb Boots Exclusive £19.99/ 1,999 points – a no-fuss, chemical-free solution.
Move over, adult colouring books: origami how-tos are taking their place as the Zen activity. But how does creating paper models calm whirring thoughts? Sam Tsang, author of The Magic Of Mindful Origami**, explains: ‘It requires the use of hands, eyes and mind – basically your entire focus. You can block out distracting thoughts and be fully in the moment.’ Print out our crane template from Tsang here.
…will be offering the new Emporium beauty experience from late September. Learn how to create the latest on-trend make-up tricks, have a mini makeover or even get a make-up bag overhaul with one of the specially trained advisors. Exciting!
Eye checks often fall to the bottom of the family to-do list. Here’s why they shouldn’t…
Your children: Kids should have their eyes tested from around age 3; all under-16s are eligible for a free NHS eye test. Book an appointment at boots.com/eyetest. They’ll love: Glitter Babes Glasses Boots Exclusive £10† with an NHS Optical Voucher††.
Your other half: If he’s optician shy, tell him that 87% of women find men in glasses attractive. Fact! He’ll love: Police Men’s Glasses VPL133, £210†.
Your mum: Our eyesight can get worse with age, so by 65 most of us need specs, even if we don’t realise it. She’ll love: Signature Women’s Glasses 1503F Boots Exclusive £130†.
Newsflash! There’s a free Boots Opticians Eye Check app that helps assess your sight through four easy-to-use eye checks that can be completed in minutes – it can even flag up if you need a full eye test. Smart! Available for both Android and iPhone, find it in the app store – just search for Boots Opticians Eye Check.
Eight hours of uninterrupted shut-eye has to be one of the most sought-after things in life, but our hectic schedules, combined with difficulty switching off, can make peaceful slumber frustratingly elusive (sigh). If you’ve given up counting sheep, these calming goodies could be just the ticket. To celebrate five years of helping us nod off, This Works is giving away seven amazing Sleep Collection sets, worth £300 each. With iconic products, including Deep Sleep Bath Oil, Deep Sleep Shower Gel, Sleep Plus Pillow Spray and Sleep Plus Hair Elixir, hitting the snooze button will soon be a thing of the past!
The closing date for entries is midnight on 25 October 2016. Good luck!
