1. The lustrous locks secret - Avoid heavy conditioners or serums near the scalp. Roll hair up and over a bristle barrel brush, as you blow-dry, but focus the hairdryer underneath the brush for maximum bounce. Brush out the curls with a Mason Pearson Paddle Brush, flicking out the brush at the ends.

2. The no-cost nail saver - Apply an olive oil to the cuticle and underside of the nails every night, and forgo nail polish for one week per month.

3. The two minute hair glossing trick – Strain the juice of two lemons into a litre of cold water and pour over your hair, as the final rinse, for a glass-like shine.

4. The face firming massage – for instant radiant results.  - Use alternate hands to 'sweep' up the neck, briskly, but gently.  -  Using the pads of your fingertips, massage the face with firm, circular movements. Start from the jaw line and work upwards.

 - When you reach the eye area, firmly 'sweep' your fingers along the browbone in one continuous stroke, moving outwards and then underneath the eye, towards the nose. Repeat two to three times.  - Massage the forehead from the middle of the forehead outwards, towards the temples. To finish, splash the face with cold water.

5. The glowing skin guarantee – For ultra-radiant skin, massage moisturiser over (liquid) foundation. The result: poreless skin and not a hint of cakeyness.

6. The recipe for softer, smoother skin – Sea salt or brown sugar plus olive oil is a classic body scrub, but an even better trick is coffee grounds, lemon juice, lavender and sunflower oil.

7. The fast flab fixer – There's no instant permanent fix for bingo wings, but increasing blood circulation to the muscle prior to going out can help it look taut. It disappears just in time for you to get down the red carpet. Simple use medium weights and do biceps curls, until you can't do any more. Rest for 60 seconds and then repeat for three sets. Follow with triceps dips on the back of a chair.
