TO MEET THE PAR­ENTS

Thick brows are in, and it’s easy to per­fect yours with these top tips. Step 1 If you have patchy brows, “Ap­ply pow­der with short, feath­ery strokes of an an­gled brush,” says eye­brow stylist Kristie Stre­icher. Step 2 If you have arch­less brows, pluck a few hairs un­der them to cre­ate the il­lu­sion of lift, trace a line of pow­der along the top of the tail and care­fully blend. Then brush on a clear gel in up­ward strokes. Step 3 If you have sparse brows, ap­ply a growth serum. Fill out the shape with pow­der and set with gel. Or, try trans­plants. David Ger­showitz from Med­i­cal Hair Restora­tion Cen­tre in Cape Town ex­plains, “We take healthy scalp fol­li­cles and place them in your brows for thick­ness.”

You say “I re­signed from my job a few years ago and adopted a reg­u­lar mid­day nap pol­icy – I slept any­where from 45 min­utes to an hour and a half, with seven to nine hours of sleep at night. I also started do­ing yoga and eat­ing more or­gan­i­cally, and saw a no­tice­able dif­fer­ence in my skin af­ter about two months. It was like I was age­ing back­wards. Here’s the prob­lem; I’ve gone back to work, and though I’ve kept up the healthy eat­ing and yoga, I get only six hours of sleep a night and don’t nap. Now I’m break­ing out again. It’s all about the sleep!” – Ka­rina, 34

The ex­perts say If you’re awake when you shouldn’t be, your cor­ti­sol lev­els stay high, ex­plains Dr Ze­ich­ner, re­sult­ing in more dark cir­cles and puffi­ness in the short term, and more wrin­kles in the long. But naps aren’t the only so­lu­tion: an iron­clad bed­time and a solid seven hours of sleep are. Use in­gre­di­ents like retinol and pep­tides at night – they’re best able to stim­u­late col­la­gen while your skin is at rest. We like En­v­i­ron In­ten­sive Retinol 1 (R354).

How soon un­til you see a change Af­ter just one good night’s rest.
