GH’s beauty guru sifts through the latest buzz to help you look (and feel!) your prettiest
‘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.

‘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)
