We may’ve grown up seeing our grandmothers spray their locks liberally with Elnett hairspray and our mums slather their faces in Creme de la Mer, but times have changed and it’s time to reevaluate the products we deem as ‘cult’ buys. While there’s undeniably something to be said for the classics, there’s a whole new gaggle of beauty buys that have paved the way in the past decade or so - and become permanent fixtures in our bathroom cupboards and on our dressing tables. Hot cloth cleansers, lipsticks that stand the test of time and perfumes that have everyone sniffing you appreciatively have made it big, and deserve your respect.

Is your body ready for the onslaught of office parties and Christmas lunches? Zoe Stirling, nutritional therapist, says that the main two areas to focus on at this time are the liver and digestive tract. “The liver is the obvious organ when we think of detoxification and it’s best to support and strengthen it now before the festive season silliness starts!” You might only think about your digestive system during your Christmas lunch but Zoe explains, if our digestive systems are ‘not regular’ before we indulge then we’re more likely to reabsorb toxins sitting in our digestive tract back into our bodies. Zoe Stirling, recommends eating clean to strengthen your body before the onslaught.
