‘As sum­mer ap­proaches, I’ll be switch­ing back to waterproof mascara, but I al­ways find it a pain to re­move. Any sug­ges­tions to make this process eas­ier?’

The an­swer to this is

twofold. Choos­ing the right type of waterproof mascara (one that does what it says, but also doesn’t re­quire pulling and tug­ging to re­move) is im­por­tant. Look for a mascara that con­tains a lash­con­di­tion­ing for­mula and sol­u­ble pig­ments. In terms of re­moval, an eye-make­up­spe­cific re­mover will be your lashes’ best friend. GH Picks: (1) Clar­ins In­stant Eye Make-Up Re­mover (R345) (2) Elemis White Flow­ers Eye & Lip Make-Up Re­mover (R540) (3) Smash­box It’s A Wrap! Waterproof Makeup Re­mover (R405)

‘I’M ON THE HUNT FOR A NEW BODY MOISTURISER – ONE THAT WILL RE­ALLY HY­DRATE MY DRY SKIN AND NOT LEAVE A STICKY RESIDUE, AND THAT WON’T BREAK THE BANK. ANY IDEAS?’

FOR DRY SKIN, YOU NEED to look for a body lo­tion that pen­e­trates the skin’s lay­ers and pro­vides long-last­ing hy­dra­tion. Gen­tle ex­fo­li­a­tion two to three times a week with a body brush or sugar-based scrub will re­move dead skin cells and help the moisturiser to be ab­sorbed more ef­fec­tively. Be­low are three hard-work­ing lo­tions all un­der R100.

TRY: (1) Mixa Anti-Dry­ness Body Lo­tion (R45,99) (2) Aveeno Nour­ish­ing Skin Re­lief Lo­tion (R94,99) (3) E45 In­tense Re­cov­ery Body Lo­tion (R71,95)
