BOYFRIEND DILEM­MAS

Do you have a man’s man at home, the type that re­lies on soap and wa­ter in the most manly of fash­ions? And yet, some­how, your prod­ucts don’t last quite as long as they should? The top prod­ucts ‘bor­rowed’ by the boys are sham­poo and fa­cial scrub. The sham­poo steal­ing ap­pears to be be­cause boys like silky hair and smelling of ex­otic flow­ers. The scrub goes miss­ing be­cause it makes their skin so smooth and re­duces in­grown hairs and ra­zor rash, and they are ad­dicted to the stuff. Hide your sup­ply and buy your man his own. Ori­gins GinZing Re­fresh­ing Scrub with en­er­gis­ing grape­fruit and caf­feine is ideal for all hearty

fel­lows, €25. I’ll bet he doesn’t share!

DITCH THE TOWEL..

If you’re ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a pe­riod of frag­ile hair it might be time to set the towel to one side. Whether it’s strands break­ing off or if you have new growth, the av­er­age weight of a cot­ton hand towel is too much for del­i­cate hair, and it’s quite rough on the hair’s der­mic outer layer, too. Cot­ton of this type isn’t the most ab­sorbent fab­ric ei­ther – lighter cot­tons are bet­ter, or polyester blends also wick away wet­ness more ef­fec­tively. Boots Hair Tur­ban is light­weight and good for rapid dry­ing, €6.75. If you haven’t got that try just us­ing an old T-shirt and gen­tly squeez­ing the hair when wet. A quick style and you’re good to go.

FALL’S COLOURS

Au­tumn is look­ing rosy with the Rose Glow Col­lec­tion from YSL. This un­usual col­lec­tion of primer, high lighter, pow­der and blush is in­fused with rose- and gold-coloured el­e­ments. Cre­ated to add a touch of ra­di­ance with a sub­tle flush of rosy pink, the prod­ucts will negate the sal­low ap­pear­ance of yel­low tones in the face, mak­ing it look health­ier. Pink is cer­tainly a trend for lips and eyes but YSL are the only brand to in­tro­duce the shade, how­ever del­i­cate look­ing, into face prod­ucts. From €35 at coun­ters na­tion­wide. It’s not all about the tum­mies, preg­nancy and breast­feed­ing can cause sore, cracked nip­ples too. It has ac­tive plant ex­tracts and av­o­cado, evening prim­rose and rosehip oil. Safe to use when nurs­ing, it can be ap­plied after breast­feed­ing. Keep to hand for other skin emer­gen­cies after breast­feed­ing ceases. When you want to get back into shape, this serum could be your se­cret weapon. Skin Tight has all the qual­i­ties of a face serum. It’s de­signed for the body to fight lax skin and smooth away any rough ar­eas. Use it once or twice a day for 30 days to see max­i­mum re­sults, there­after ap­ply it three times a week to main­tain the ef­fects. Try it ev­ery­where you want to im­prove tone and tighten skin, whether arms, legs and/or tummy.
