‘Welcome to 2018! Here’s what’s trending in the world of Health & Beauty – guaranteed to get your new year off to a fantastic start’ Helen Daly, Editor
Remember those 90s layered hairstyles? Newsflash: they’re back, but with an on-point update. ‘If done correctly, layers can really enhance your haircut,’ explains celebrity hair stylist Liam Curran. ‘The key is for layers to sit below the jawline to stop them bouncing up to your cheeks and looking boxy. If you have finer tresses, build body by mussing them up with a little salt spray. I use Bumble And Bumble Surf Infusion Spray* £23/2,300 points (100ml).’
Listen up: pursuing perfection may not make you happy. But, according to a new book, Filling The Happiness Gap†, learning to accept ‘good enough’ can. Just think: ‘I might not fit into the jeans from my twenties, but I eat well and do more exercise now, so I’m healthy’. When you feel a bit gloomy, help flip your thinking with this cue:
Tired, puffy peepers? This combo will wake them up. Use the Real Techniques Under Eye Reviver (part of the Prep And Prime Set) Boots.com only £19.99/1,999 points, with your fave eye cream, and enjoy a cooling massage from the stainless steel ball. Next, reach for Max Factor Lash Crown Mascara, £10.99/1,099 points – its two-in-one wand coats every lash, even those inner corners.
A child’s hair contains less melanin (which gives strands their colour) than ours, which means it’s more transparent and prone to breakage. So why not check out the Johnson’s Shiny Drops range* (from £2.49), created with tinies’ delicate locks in mind. Aww.
That’s one every three minutes – scary stuff. But being active for at least 30 minutes five times a week, not smoking, eating a healthy, balanced diet and doing activities such as crosswords can all help to lower your risk of developing it. If you or a loved one are affected by dementia, you can find more info at alzheimers.org.uk. Or go to dementiafriends.org.uk to see how you can become a Dementia Friend.
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.
