THE PRETTY BOW

(Pre­vi­ous page) YOU’LL NEED An ex­tra-long, rec­tan­gu­lar printed scarf. STEP 1 Keep­ing your scarf wide, start with the cen­tre above your right ear. Gather it like a side pony­tail to­ward your left ear.

STEP 2 Tie it tightly just above your left ear. Don’t worry about be­ing too pre­cise – you can ad­just and smooth out bumps later.

STEP 3 Wrap one end of the scarf around the knot, cre­at­ing a large bun. Do the same with the other end. Tuck the ends un­der the scarf un­til they can’t be seen. For ex­tra vol­ume, use a thin­ner rec­tan­gu­lar scarve un­derneath, and fol­low the same steps.

THE DRA­MATIC SIDE BUN

(This page) YOU’LL NEED Two long, rec­tan­gu­lar scarves. One light and the other thick. STEP 1 Find the cen­tre of the thick scarf and place it in the mid­dle of the nape of your neck. Bring the ends for­ward.

STEP 2 Tie a knot in the mid­dle of your fore­head.

STEP 3 Bring the ends to the back of your head, tie again and tuck the loose bits away.

STEP 4 Take the light­weight scarf and re­peat step one on top of the first scarf.

STEP 5 Make a knot above the first knot and cre­ate a bow. Leave the ends hang­ing in the front. Voilà!

Turns out your granny was right about sleep be­ing the best beauty treat­ment. “Your body ab­sorbs more nu­tri­ents at night, so this is a great time to give your skin the vi­ta­mins and pep­tides it needs,” says der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr Emma Craythorne. Even bet­ter, how about the dreamy new gen­er­a­tion of prod­ucts that lit­er­ally work while you get some shut-eye?

Pre­vent de­hy­dra­tion The gel tex­ture of [1] Dior Hy­dra Life Jelly Sleep­ing Mask (R1 340) amps up hy­dra­tion and ra­di­ance.

Re­gen­er­ate and feed [2] The Body Shop Oils Of Life In­tensely Re­vi­tal­is­ing Sleep­ing Cream (R300) con­tains three seed oils from around the world, plus seven es­sen­tial oils that nour­ish deeply.

Pu­rify your pores Lather on the lush and light­weight [3] Estée Lauder Nightwear Plus Anti­ox­i­dant Night Detox Creme (R790) to re­fine and help re­duce vis­i­ble pores.

Firm up The min­er­als, amino acids and hyaluronic acid in [4] El­iz­a­beth Ar­den Ceramide Overnight Firm­ing Mask (R685) help smooth and lift your skin.

Look lu­mi­nes­cent Get the glow of some­one who’s slept for at least eight hours (even if you didn’t!) with [5] Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep (R450). The caf­feine, mi­cro-ex­fo­li­at­ing LHA and vi­ta­min B3 present im­prove mi­cro­cir­cu­la­tion and stim­u­late cell re­newal.

Pam­per those peep­ers Soothe and smooth your eye area with [6] Elemis Pro­col­la­gen Hy­dra­gel Eye­mask (R1 190 for a box of six). Hyaluronic acid hy­drates and plank­ton and other power in­gre­di­ents tighten. (Tech­ni­cally it works in 20 min­utes, but overnight ap­pli­ca­tion feels like the ul­ti­mate pam­per.)

Smooth your hands Your hands work hard, so nour­ish them with [7] Filorga Hand­filler (R580). It’s an ex­cel­lent anti-ager that smooths skin, fights dark spots and strength­ens your nails, too!
