‘Discover what’s hot this month in the world of health and beauty – and don’t miss your chance to win a luxe Liz Earle hamper’ Helen Daly, Editor
You might’ve laughed at Granny for eating ‘tea’ early, but it seems she had it right: a new study suggests eating a late evening meal could increase your risk of a heart attack if you have high blood pressure. Why? It can hinder the normal overnight drop in blood pressure. Ideally, the researchers say, we should have dinner before 7pm. But if you can’t, keep it light – we love this side salad: Nutritious Roasted Beetroot, Cauliflower & Quinoa Salad Boots Exclusive £2.75/275 points (200g).
…saw the invention of the first spiral-tip mascara wand. Now, nearly 60 years on, a ‘transformable’ brush is the latest tool to fix your flutter. Our fave is Clinique’s Lash Power Flutter-To-Full Mascara, £20/2,000 points, which has a dial that allows you to add more or less to the brush to amp up or tone down your look.
If you’ve got a notepad covered with swirls and stars, it isn’t just a sign of a wandering mind: studies have found doodling can help us retain important information, and may boost creativity. So grab a pen (along with a Happy Jackson Great Ideas A6 Notebook, £6.95/695 points) and let loose – you might just have a brainwave.
Got a little night owl? Forget the myth about not letting them sleep in the day: a three-hour nap can actually reset their internal clock. To help little ones snooze, make sure their nappy is up to the task – we like Pampers Baby-Dry, which absorbs 30 times its weight in wetness!
