Olay O-yay

If you tend to stick to one cream and have 30 or 40 something skin, then we suggest you give this little beauty a try. Olay has developed new Total Effects Moisturiser + Serum Duo, £16.99, with targeted ingredient combinations, to effectively fight the appearance of 7 signs of ageing in just one step.

Seven signs of ageing? Really… that’s just the marketing hook, in real terms this product makes your skin feel softer and look brighter, younger and juicier. And it seems that we’re not alone.

A recent study found that 95% OF WOMEN that used new Olay saw a difference. And Hollywood actress Thandie Newton is a fan.

“In order to get on the school run or just out the door, I look in my cupboard and there are all these different pots and you think which one do I use, what do I do, and in the end, I say just forget it!

“So you think wouldn’t it be great to have a cream with the serum already in so I was thrilled when Olay developed this new product, I almost feel like it’s for me!”

And us, Thandie – we love it too.

 

Counting sleep

Those all-important eight hours can elude many of us night after night – in fact, a recent consumer poll found that only 6% of us achieve a full night’s sleep consistently.

Why not try one of these to send you off to the land of nod?

Sleep Patch-It (£29.99 Holland and Barrett) is a plaster-style patch that uses the ancient principals of reflexology to stimulate key pressure points on the feet.   Enriched with luxurious double-distilled Mandarin Wood Vinegar to boost far infrared – a form of energy naturally produced by our tissues to increase warmth and healing – you can be confident of a restful night. Apply Sleep Patch-It to the soles of your feet shortly before going to bed and allow it to work overnight, helping you to wake feeling refreshed and energised. Sleep Patch-It should be used for seven consecutive nights for optimum results.

Celebrity reflexologist Jade Davison (www.roseyfeet.co.uk) says: “Many of my clients come to me with sleep problems and this is something that reflexology can really assist with.  An expert can help to get to the bottom of the problem, and to continue the treatment at home, try something like Sleep Patch-It, on the soles of your feet to stimulate the reflexology points and help you sleep more easily and deeply.”
