‘Discover what’s hot this month in the world of health and beauty – and don’t miss your chance to win a Bronnley perfume set' Helen Daly, Editor
Too many lipsticks, no time to wear them all? We have the answer – dual tones! It’s a huge summer trend, and we love it. ‘Use products with the same finish and pigment,’ says Lisa Potter-Dixon, Benefit’s head make-up artist. ‘I love red on top and pink on the bottom, for a cool take on a classic red lip.’ No room for two lippies in your summer clutch? Try 2-in-1 Dior Rouge Gradient Duo Lip Shadow Pen in Pink, £26/2,600 points, or Benefit They’re Real! Double The Lip in Flame Game, £16.50/1,650 points.
80% of dentists spot worn-away enamel in their patients every week. Eek! So keep tabs on your diet – experts say that more than four servings of acidic food and drink a day can soften enamel (watch-outs include fizzy drinks, juice and even salad dressing). And consider using Sensodyne Pronamel Strong & Bright Enamel Toothpaste, £5/500 points (75ml), which helps strengthen and whiten teeth.
You slather your kids with SPF, but are you protecting their eyes from the sun, too? Children’s peepers are especially vulnerable to UV rays, and up to 80% of a person’s lifetime exposure occurs before the age of 18. So kit out your brood with these funky frames (see the full range at bootsdesignersunglasses.com) – they’re so cool, your kids just won’t want to take them off. Mum win!
Sunglasses, from top to bottom: Zoobug 4-9 Years White 870 44mm Polarised, £43; Polaroid Junior Palladium 8019S, £27; and Ray-Ban Junior RJ9060S 70084V, £75 (sunglasses in store only).
First we had ‘mom’ jeans, now the ‘mom’ haircut is the new sounds-frumpy-but-is-actually-cool trend. At a recent shoot, stylist Liam Curran was raving about it. ‘A shoulder-length bob is no longer thought of as a practical “school run” style,’ he said. ‘It makes nearly any type of hair look fuller, and it’s so low-maintenance – just air-dry and spritz with a salt spray for a tousled look.’ Try Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray, £8.25/825 points (200ml). We were so convinced, we went and got the cut ourselves!

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 balmier weather (*crosses fingers*). 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.
My in-flight essentials
To say I’m obsessed with Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist, £21/ 2,100 points (100ml), is an understatement. It’s incredibly light, so a spritz feels like a skin-boosting refresh – not an in-flight shower!Add
With a husband and two kids in tow, packing smart is essential. This all-in-one skin-perfecting superhero comes with me wherever I’m heading. This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up, £30/3,000 points (40ml).Add
Roll on the day when I finally master the art of sleeping on a plane. Until then, a dab of soothing Champneys Heavenly Days Sleep Temple Balm, £6/600 points (15g), is the next best thing to catching some zzz’s.Add
