About pedicures How to give yourself a pedicure
First remove rough spots on your feet, says manicurist Deborah Lippmann. Use the  Tweezerman Step-two-it Foot File (R300). Clip your nails straight across and buff the edges, then apply cuticle oil, like  Artistic Revive Nail & Cuticle Oil (R210), and follow with foot cream. Swipe each nail with remover before applying a base coat, polish and top coat. TRY  Essie Grow Faster Base Coat Build + Protect (R149.95).
How to fix a broken toenail
Use nail glue to paste a piece of a teabag on the tear ( both on top and underneath). File until smooth and apply a top coat.
About acne How to get rid of acne overnight
Ice the spot, says dermo Dr Sonia Batra, then apply a 2% salicylic acid gel, like  Eucerin Dermo Purifyer (R189.99). Add hydrocortisone cream (from pharmacies) and leave it alone. Or TRY  Dermalex Repair Acne Cream (R361.95). Then, cover redness with a concealer, like  Smashbox Studio Skin 24 Hour Waterproof Concealer (R350).
How to get rid of acne scars
If it’s dark, use an exfoliating treatment with glycolic acid or vitamin C daily for a month. If your scar is raised or indented, a dermo could zap it away with a Fraxel laser (R1 500 per session).
About tanning How to apply self tan
Exfoliate! Especially your knees and ankles. We like  Woolworths Cashmere Exfoliating Body Scrub (R65). Dry, then apply bronzer in sections. Blend well at your wrists and ankles, but dilute the tan over your joints. TRY  Caribbean Tan Self Tan Bronzing Mousse (R99.95).
How long does a spray tan last?
Between five and 10 days. For longlasting colour, exfoliate the day before applying the tan and avoid hot showers after. Also: moisturise! We adore  Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser (R89.99).
Remove makeup with an oil-based cleanser. Oil attracts oil.
Long to bob / Star tresses
Use Gigi Hadid as inspiration for your new style. “This bob is less about structure and more about undone ends, which is much more of the moment,” says hair pro Ollie Blackaby. But what about those between-washes days when you’re reliant on a top knot? “Try a messy half-up, half-down style,” says Ollie.
A bold fringe Long to mid length
When you have long hair, a cut can seem scary, but going mid length the way Bonang Matheba has can freshen up your look. “This hair is one length,” reveals hair guru Luke Hersheson. “Ask for it to be cut with a razor, so that the ends aren’t blunt. Invisible layers need to be added to get movement.” And you can still style it up: “Try The Pun – half ponytail, half bun that sits lower on the neck.”
Lob to short
Christina Milian upped the ante on her lob by taking off another few centimetres. But does this mean you can’t do updos? “No, try a half halo braid,” advises stylist Marc Trinder. “French plait the hair on the left away from the temple, adding in extra strands as you plait. Secure with a small elastic band at the end of the plait behind the ear, and tong a messy wave through the back.” “A fringe is a great way to update your look without the commitment of a short haircut,” says hair expert Jonathan Soons. “It works best on medium-to-thick locks, but if your hair is thinner, try a choppier fringe that frames your face.” Just like Halle Berry’s.
