    Ever spare a thought for your scalp? If not, you’re in good company, as a new study suggests that half of us don’t. But we really should, says top stylist Trevor Sorbie. ‘This fine, delicate layer of skin is vital to how hair looks, and can cause problems such as flat roots, flaking and thinning.’ So why not pamper your scalp with a mini massage, or try one of these treatments…

     

    Flat roots?

    Try Grow Gorgeous Back Into The Roots 10 Minute Stimulating Scalp Mask, £24/2,400 points (240ml), to help give your hair a lift.

    Flakiness?

    The oat proteins in Aveeno Skin Relief Soothing Shampoo, £9.49/949 points (300ml), help comfort a dry and sensitive scalp.

    Irritated skin?

    Salon Science Hydrasorb Intensive Masque Boots Exclusive £14/1,400 points (150ml), has active ingredients with anti-irritant and soothing properties.

Suggest he tries bench presses, as a study found testosterone levels increased after heavy resistance training. And slip Berocca Effervescent Tablets in Orange Flavour, £4.85/485 points (15-pack), into his gym bag – they contain magnesium to help support normal muscle function. Here’s to ‘heavage’, not cleavage!

    Did you know that a good cry releases a natural painkilling endorphin? Cue an excuse to cosy up on the sofa with one of these classic weepies:

    Titanic We all lost our stiff upper lips when Rose said, ‘I’ll never let go!’ to Jack in the icy sea. But the biggest tragedy? He totally could have fitted on that door…

    Beaches When Wind Beneath My Wings plays after Hillary and CC’s final visit to the beachhouse, there’s just no stopping the river of tears.

    The Notebook Spoiler alert: the moment when ‘older’ Allie remembers everything… then forgets just minutes later. Totally heartbreaking.

    Beauty supplements are nothing new, but the latest ‘nutricosmetics’ are causing quite a buzz. Created by a team of scientists and nutritionists, Beauty Beneath £39.99/3,999 points (60 capsules), is formulated with phytonutrients, including lycopene and vitamins C and E, to help improve the skin’s appearance. Meanwhile, Imedeen is set to launch Advanced Beauty Shot (available from 24 January), an on-the-go beauty drink that claims to delve into the dermis to help delay wrinkles. Skin-deep beauty indeed!
