The man­i­cure lasts up to two weeks and is re­moved with reg­u­lar pol­ish re­mover. The Gel shades cost €9.99, as does the Mir­a­cle Gel Top Coat. Duo packs of one gel colour/top coat are avail­able for just €14.99. Avail­able at phar­ma­cies na­tion­wide.

Chil­dren and adults alike suf­fer with atopic skin, with re­search show­ing that 27 per cent of Ir­ish house­holds have one or more per­son with eczema.

AN­TIOX­I­DANT AID

Wel­come news from Pan­tene if you suf­fer from split ends or styling dam­age. The global brand is the first to re­for­mu­late all its sham­poos to in­clude an­tiox­i­dant dam­age blocker tech­nol­ogy. Be­cause our hair picks up min­er­als from tap wa­ter, es­pe­cially cop­per, over time this can lead to hair weak­ness and poros­ity. The new tech­nol­ogy acts as a min­eral mag­net, pre­vent­ing build up and lead­ing to health­ier hair. The range is called Pan­tene Pro-V Break­age De­fence col­lec­tion for dam­aged hair, prices start at €3.89. We all know lip­stick as lip pro­tec­tor just doesn’t cut it, so sales of lip balm will soar in the com­ing weeks. But you don’t need to sacrifice great lip colour in the fight against chap­ping, visit a Burt’s Bees counter and see the huge se­lec­tion of coloured balms, lip shine and shim­mers. All nat­u­ral and en­riched with great mois­turis­ers like co­coa but­ters. Au­tumn is the ideal time to in­tro­duce a nour­ish­ing oil into your rou­tine to fight the rigours of colder days and cen­tral heat­ing. Divine Cream for day is L’Oc­c­i­tane’s best sell­ing mois­turiser. Its light­weight tex­ture melts into the skin and a drop or two of this skin-en­hanc­ing oil be­fore Divine Cream boosts its ef­fects. Use daily or as needed. Try it also at night be­fore bed and wake up to more rested look­ing skin.
