‘Discover what’s hot this month in the world of health and beauty – and don’t miss your chance to win a summer fragrance wardrobe from Bronnley’ Helen Daly, Editor
As temperatures climb, you might be tempted to reach for your compact to try to stop shine. But you don’t want to resemble a chalky ghost! Luckily, Pixiwoo’s Sam Chapman has let us in on her stay- matte secret – New Real Techniques PowderBleu Collection Soft Powder Brush, £22/2,200 points. ‘It diffuses powder over your face to give seamless coverage,’ says Sam. ‘No matter how much you use, it won’t look cakey.’ We’re in!
Pixiwoo’s Sam and Nic reveal more of their make-up brush techniques to Beauty Director Donna in this how-to bronze video…
Q: What’s increasing faster than the Hadid sisters’ Instagram following?
A: The number of women holidaying alone. In fact, one US travel company now boasts that 80% of its solo customers are female. Plus, research shows that lone travel in general – for men and women, single or not – is one of the fastest-growing areas of tourism. It’s clear lots of us have realised that quality me-time is a fast track to feeling relaxed and carefree (backed by actual science, fact fans). We say: blaze your own trail this summer!
They’ll be back at school before you know it, so sort out their health appointments now to avoid missing lessons
Eye test Youngsters should have one at least every two years – under 16s are entitled to a free NHS eye test, which you can book at boots.com/eyetest*. P.S. Boots Opticians lenses are reflection-free, scratch-resistant and tough – playground-proof!
Dental check As a third of all kids going back to school each year have signs of tooth decay, take them to the dentist during the holidays. That’ll keep smiles sweet!

Here’s your chance to refresh your scent for warmer days
At this time of year, we’re keen to swap our usual perfume for something to match our lighter mood and the (*crosses fingers*) balmier weather. And if you’re one of our 12 lucky winners, you won’t need to splash any cash to do so, as we’re giving away a dozen sets (worth £180 each) from British perfumier Bronnley. They include nine products – three eaux de toilette††, three eaux fraîches and three rollerballs – in fabulous fragrances from the brand’s Eclectic Elements Collection. You’ll just have a #firstworldproblem deciding which scent you like best: the fresh and zesty Citrine Lagoon, Cosmic Bloom’s pretty florals, or the spicy undertones of Crimson Cloud. Happy spritzing! The closing date for entries is midnight on 29 August 2017.
