We’ve teamed up with beauty experts to the stars to discover the secrets to looking and feeling your best


For super-smooth results when shaving, advanced beauty therapist and beauty editor Nathalie Eleni recommends a short soak in the bath or shower beforehand. Just two or three minutes in the heat and steam helps to soften the hair, making it easier to cut.

“There is a tipping point – soaking for too long over-hydrates skin giving you a less close shave,” says Nathalie. She recommends using a Venus Swirl Razor and Venus Satin Care with a Touch of Olay.


Start the day with a pick-me-up using the power of scent, says celebrity hairstylist Ben Cooke. Washing your hair with shampoos that feature mood-lifting fragrances can give you a boost of confidence, and nothing is more attractive than that.

“Certain scents have proven psychological benefits. At this time of year when you need a pick me up, start your day with hair care that contains a fresh uplifting scent for that extra hit of confidence,” he says.

He suggests Head & Shoulders Apple Fresh Shampoo, with smart scent burst technology.


When the temperature drops and the cold wind starts to bite, that’s when your skin needs a bit of TLC to prevent it drying out. Consultant dermatologist Ginny Hubbard says you can winterproof your complexion with a rich day cream featuring anti-ageing ingredients, such as Olay Regenerist 3 Point Treatment Cream. “Massage it into skin in circular motions day and night for a smooth skin finish,” says Ginny.
