Beautyfile: How to give your face a real lift

Have your say

Your daughter’s wedding day is one of the most exciting of times. But spare a thought for Carole Middleton, mother of the future Queen. The eyes of the world will be on her at the Royal wedding. If current reports are to be believed, Carole is currently following the low-carb Dukan diet in order to be looking her best.

But what good is a great new figure if your face looks tired and drawn? Comfort Zone’s Glorious Skin mask, £32.75, and serum, £78.75, have been deemed ‘botox in a bottle’. Said to give exceptional lift to the face and neck, products reduce expression lines and wrinkles with an immediate tensor effect. Makers claim that, if used morning and evening for 30 days, the Glorious Skin range will reduce fine lines and wrinkles by 40 per cent. It contains vitamin E, hyaluronic acid and wheat proteins and is available from spas and salons nationwide. For stockists telephone 01827 280 080 or visit

Quick fix for a clear complexion

If you’re in need of a facial, but don’t have time to get to the salon, Nº7 Purifying Sauna Mask 75m, £11.50 is the solution for a complexion quick fix. Great for normal to combination or blemish-prone skin, upon contact with water it heats up to open the pores and draw out impurities for a deep cleansing experience. Pumice particles exfoliate to brighten the skin and rose-hip oil conditions. As you rinse, it tightens pores to leave your skin feeling fresh, healthy and incredibly clean in no time.

Creating hair with a golden tinge

Moroccan Argan oil is the latest buzz-word in beauty.

A powerful moisturiser, strengthener and protector, it is being added to all manner of hair and beauty products. The best-known brand, Moroccanoil, have a range of hair treatments, shampoos and conditioners which give amazing results. Hair seems fuller, glossier and shinier. But like many women with fine, fair hair I found I had to use it very sparingly - and also that the oil gave my hair golden tinge . Now Moroccanoil have introduced Moroccanoil® Light, boasting the same glossing, elasticising and fortifying effects as the original formula, but in a lighter consistency for fine and fair hair. It costs £29.85 for 100ml at selected hair salons and beauty websites. Go to or call 0800 310 1133 for details.
