Q: What can I do naturally to address the saggy skin each side of my mouth — or what is the best way to tighten this area? A: If by 'naturally' you're referring to things such as facial exercises, I'm afraid you'll find them a waste of time. But there are procedures proven to stimulate skin's natural collagen and elastin production and restore some of its firmness and spring. Dermatologist Dr Stefanie Williams (eudelo.com) favours Exokine therapy. Using an electric needle pen that makes tens of thousands of microscopic punctures in your face, she triggers a healing response that plumps and tightens skin. An anonymous reader asked British beauty expert Inge van Lotringen for advice on how to naturally address the saggy skin on each side of her mouth (stock image) It's followed by an infusion of a concentrated serum derived from the growth factors in your own blood, seriously amping up the fresh cell production.

The rot must have set in with David Gandy, that floppy-haired Adonis who burst on the scene a few years back in a vaguely pornographic aftershave advert. Pouting and bronzed, the 39-year-old Essex boy demonstrated, for perhaps the first time in modern history, that a British man can look good on the beach. Even when wearing a pair of brilliant-white budgie smugglers. Things then got worse with the rise of Love Island, the strangely addictive hit TV programme that seems to be at least partly based on the premise that male self-worth revolves around a decent 'six-pack'. Finally, just as the nation's chip-scoffing men were booking summer holidays, we were treated to the sight of the absurdly buff movie star Jude Law, 46, visiting the seaside. What a figure Law cut, wearing tiny swimming trunks and affecting a look of obscene smugness as he swaggered past a cabal of bikini-clad lovelies, in viral photographs taken on the set of his upcoming television series, The New Pope.

The idea for Louise Hill’s multi-million-pound children’s bank card business came to her as she stood on the side of a cold and windy football pitch, watching her eight-year-old son, Mackenzie, play in a school match. ‘It wasn’t a particularly riveting game, so I turned to the other parents and said: “How much has your child spent on your iTunes account, then?” ’ recalls Louise, who is from Lymington, Hampshire. ‘It was 2009, the year everybody was getting iPods. In all innocence, I had given Mackenzie and his older sister, Isabella, my iTunes log-in and they were merrily downloading music and racking up bills on my card of about £3 or £4 a week. It wasn’t the sum so much as the principle.’ Parents on the touchline recounted tales of how their children had spent money on Xbox or PlayStation games and on Amazon using their parents’ cards — hundreds of pounds in some horrifying cases — and it got … [Read more...] about Trailblazer turning children into savvy savers
Another mini-heatwave looms and an alfresco tipple or two seems only polite. But what shall we drink? This summer's most fashionable thirst-quencher combines prosecco-like bubbles with the floral aroma of a white wine, and might just be Britain's best-kept secret. Once hailed by Napoleon as 'England's champagne', perry — or pear cider, as it's sometimes called — has quietly become 2019's most sophisticated fizz. Perry has been around for centuries — in fact, Babycham, found in drinks cabinets across the nation in the Sixties and Seventies, is a sparkling perry — but over the years it fell out of favour. Drinks expert Helen McGinn picks out her summer selection of 2019's most fashionable fizz, perry (stock image) Back in its heyday Babycham was turned out at the rate of 2.5 million bottles a week. But by the early Nineties, the growing taste for wine saw sales fall to just a million bottles a year. However, our thirst for all things sparkling has grown in recent … [Read more...] about Perry is back and its POSHER than ever
