‘The latest buzz in health and beauty plus your chance to win a luxe spa set worth £200!’ Helen Daly, Editor
The must-have tool to nail the AW17 trends? A new-gen foundation brush. ‘Whatever the look, you’ll need a smooth base,’ says make-up artist Sam Chapman from Pixiwoo. ‘And by applying foundation with a brush, rather than your fingers, you’ll get a seamless, un-cakey finish.’
HOW TO CHOOSE
‘To get full coverage, a brush with firmly packed bristles blends liquids and creams best,’ says Sam. ‘For a natural finish, go for soft, silky bristles, which add a subtle wash of foundation.’
A CLEAN SWEEP

The buzzword has over 42 million hashtags on Insta – so it’s no surprise vegan haircare is the new obsession. We’re talking products that contain no parabens, sulphates or silicones, so there’s less chance of the build-up that can weigh hair down. Our pick for bouncy locks? New Maui Moisture Revive & Hydrate + Shea Butter Hair Mask, £8.99/899 points (340g), which has nourishing aloe vera juice as its main ingredient. For coloured hair, Infuse My. Colour Copper Wash Shampoo, £13.95/1,395 points (270ml), adds peachy tones to bleached tresses.
Date for your diary: BBC Children in Need appeal night on Friday 17th November. And don’t forget this is the merch on offer this year at Boots.

2. Perk up your keys with this on-trend New Pompom Style Keyring†, £3.50.
3. Wear your New Pudsey Pin Badge†, £1, with pride, on every outfit.
4. This pair of New Blush Glow-In-The-Dark Ears†, £2.50, will help you Go Bright For BBC Children in Need.
Both suck, but there’s a big difference. Here’s how to tell them apart…
ACHES AND PAINS
Cold: Sometimes, slight Flu: Often; can be severe
Cold: Rare Flu: Struggle to get out of bed
FEVER AND SWEATING
Cold: Unusual Flu: Usual for temperature to rise between 38 and 40°C
Newsflash: Research shows vitamin D may help reduce the risk of respiratory tract infections. Oily fish is a good source, but as we get most of the vitamin from the sun, a supplement of vitamin F should be considered in autumn and winter.
