‘Make way for a fresh-off-the-catwalk eye brightener; give your shower a me-time makeover; and discover why it’s time to embrace the sound of silence. Plus, don’t miss your chance to win a whiter smile – ting!’ Helen Daly, Editor



#Trend alert

Inner-eye strobing

  1. default image

    Placing a dot of white highlighter at the inner corner of each eye has long been a fail-safe brightener, guaranteed to make peepers pop. But now we’re seeing models experiment with golds, oranges and pinks, too. Make-up artist Julie Read says, ‘Explore different colours with a palette so you can see what suits you.’ We love NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette in Brights, £16/1,600 points, applied with a brush.

Go on, spoil yourself!

Too busy for pampering? Then reclaim your morning shower with some me-time treats. ‘Steam softens and relaxes skin, so dirt can be removed more easily, leaving a clean base for masks, scrubs and oils,’ explains celebrity skincare expert Nichola Joss.

Walk on the quiet side?

With noise pollution on the rise – 44% of Europeans are regularly exposed to levels that are considered dangerous – it’s no wonder (*whispers*) silence is this year’s buzzword, with silent retreats and flotation tanks seeing a renaissance. Don’t want to splash out on some quiet time? Try ‘forest bathing’ – a Japanese practice that simply means walking through a wooded area, absorbing the blissful peace. And breathe…

WIN! A whiter smile

Show your teeth some TLC with a hi-tech electric toothbrush, worth £280


Want a dazzling, A-list smile? Well, it can be yours thanks to Oral-B. The brand is giving away 10 of its hi-tech Genius 9000 Electric Toothbrushes (worth £280 each), which remove more plaque (the main cause of gum disease) along the gum line than a manual toothbrush. They’re so clever, they even tell you if you’re brushing too hard or have missed a spot. As well as being a smile game-changer, brushing your teeth can also be the perfect time to be mindful. Think about the flavour of the toothpaste, be aware of the sensation of the bristles in your mouth, notice any sounds – use it as a chance to be in the moment. Even the design of the Genius 9000 Electric Toothbrush, in a purple orchid shade, adds to the ‘…and relax’ vibe. Time to turn your teeth-cleaning regime into a moment to pause, rather than just a chore to tick off.
