GREAT SKIN SECRETS:

Kelly Horsley says: Put your eye cream in the fridge! Not only will it work as normal but the coolness of it will help to soothe and de-puff your eyes too!

Gillian McWhirter says: Use a toothbrush and Vaseline to buff dry skin from your lips. It also plumps them too

Abigail Hamilton says: When applying toner, wet the cotton wool pad and squeeze out excess water before adding the product. It makes your toner go further.

Anne-Louise E Hall says: Moisturise before applying make-up! If you’re like me, and have really bad skin, it will make it look more natural.

 

Carol Bradnock says: Dry brush your skin. It’s cheap and easy to do, sheds dead skin cells really quickly and makes your skin look radiant instead of dull.

Valerie Allen says: Whilst I spend time in the evenings cleansing and toning, I’m afraid in the mornings it’s shower, make-up and go. A recent issue of No.1 reminded me of the beauty tip from Sweden to splash cold water on my face after my shower. I can tell you it’s made a huge difference and only takes a second.

 

MAKE-UP SECRETS:

Anne McGowan says: Always use top quality brushes when applying make-up
