Easy, affordable ways to update your look for spring
A new hairstyle might be the ultimate way to change your look, but
simple tweaks to your tresses can be just as dramatic. Try switching
your parting from the middle to the side or from one side to the other.
Style while wet then blow dry to keep in place.
Did you know that make-up has a use by date? Check the back of the bottle for a symbol with a number (usually 12 or 24) which denotes months. Discard right away if it’s been open longer – it could be upsetting your skin – then try something new. BB Creams are still on our radar, check our guide to find out which new formula is right for you.
Getting enough shut-eye is so important. It effects everything from concentration to mood, weight and even our ability to fight off disease. Having trouble drifting off? Get in to a routine. Add a couple of drops of lavender oil to a bath before snuggling up to tell your body it’s time to rest. Opening a window, banishing the Blackberry from the bedroom and reading before you drop off will also help aid a restful night’s sleep.
Still struggling? Fake it.
