Three secret beauty tips from our experts
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.
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.
