‘Discover what’s hot this month in the world of health and beauty – and don’t miss your chance to win a suncare kit from La Roche-Posay’ Helen Daly, Editor
If clean eating has revolutionised your diet, you’ll want to get on board with 2017’s top wellbeing trend: clean sleeping. Loved by Gwyneth Paltrow, it’s all about sprucing up your bedtime routine to help you get 7-8 hours’ kip. ‘A ritual, such as visualising a happy place, can help your mind switch off, leading to deeper slumber,’ says sleep expert Sammy Margo. Lavender-infused Tisserand Sweet Dreams Aromatherapy Roller Ball, £5.59/559 points (10ml), might help, too.
The good news? Clumpy mascara is no longer ‘a thing’! Spidery lashes were big last season, but for summer they’re more natural. The bad news? Warmer temperatures can make mascara thicken before it’s even left the bottle! Enter Rimmel London Volume Shake Mascara, £8.99/899 points – just like those holiday Orangina bottles, shake it to wake the de-clumping mechanism for smudge-free lashes. Genius.
Ah, how we love a sun-kissed summer glow. It’s almost enough to make us forgo foundation. Still crave a bit of coverage? ‘Go a shade darker,’ says make-up artist Lee Pycroft, ‘as your regular foundation is likely to look ashy on your skin. A warmer colour – and a lighter texture – will give a more natural result.’ Don’t know your shade? Pick up a No7 Match Made skin-tone analysis card in store and download the free app from iTunes or Google Play. You’ve just aced your base!
