‘The latest health and beauty news – and your chance to win a luxe spa set worth £200!’ Helen Daly, Editor
We grabbed 60 seconds with Dr Olivier Courtin-Clarins, Clarins’ managing director, at the brand’s SOS face mask range launch, and he opened our eyes to this skincare bombshell: masking once a week won’t cut it! ‘Consistency is key – you should use masks two or three times a week,’ he revealed. His tip for extra glow? ‘Add a drop of face oil to encourage absorption into the skin’s layers.’ We love New Clarins SOS Hydra Refreshing Hydration Mask*, £30/3,000 points (75ml), for a surge of moisture.
This autumn, turn over a new leaf (boom, boom) with the latest Nordic trend, ‘lagom’. Translated as ‘just the right amount’, it’s about shunning diets, keeping a work-life balance and being active every day. No wonder Scandis keep topping wellbeing polls. Time to learn ‘Norse code’?
Kids off to uni? You won’t be able to stop them having toast for every meal (sorry), but there are other ways to help keep them on track.
• Health helper: Vitamin C can help support the immune system, so pack Boots Pharmaceuticals Sustained Release Vitamin C & Zinc, £4.99/499 points (90 tablets), for freshers’ week.
• Stay safe: It’s been found (by science!) that teens who’ve had ‘the chat’ practice safer sex. Sexual Health Week (11–17 September) is the perfect time to start the convo.
Psst! Remind them that Boots pharmacies offer private consultation areas for sexual health concerns and contraceptive advice.
We have 10 luxe spa sets up for grabs, each worth £200
The darker evenings of autumn give us the perfect excuse to snuggle up at home and indulge in some me-time. And if you’re one of the winners in our free prize draw, you’ll have the chance to transform your bathroom into a pampering haven with a luxury hamper.
