HAPPY END-INGS >>

Many will be debuting – or thinking of debuting – a new look this time of year, filled with all the best intentions of keeping their locks looking and feeling their best. Keep your mop in check with a little helping hand from Aveda in the form of their new Damage Remedy Split End Repair – an innovative new cream made with special nangai oil to help seal frayed ends and draw wayward stands back together. Smooth it on every morning and night.

SATIN SKIN >>

Treat yourself to Tom Ford’s new Velvet Orchid Hydrating Emulsion – especially if winter has taken its toll on your skin. Scented with the brand’s sensuous Velvet Orchid fragrance, this satin-like emulsion glides on to help smooth and soften, as well as creating a moisture barrier to help you feel supple all day.

£54 – £108 at John Lewis


GO GIRL >>

Tommy Hilfiger’s new scent for women, The Girl, is the perfect spritz for dreary days. Infused with fresh, crisp bursts of green pear, violet and green fig, just a few sprays will have you feeling uplifted, sprightly and ready to take on the day. Wearing it makes us think of happy spring days.

GOOD MUD >>

Battling post-party skin? Reach for a pore-loving mask to banish pesky spots, soothe dehydrated spots and inject some radiance. Pixi’s Glow Mud Mask fits the bill perfectly, thanks to its mineral-rich formula (a zingy mix of ginseng, aloe vera, sea salt and kaolin clay) that effectively draws out oil and smoothes out roughness. The texture’s spot on too – thin, fresh-smelling and easy to wash off. Fab for travelling.

£18 at Marks & Spencer


BRIGHT EYED >>

Tired eyes need Murad’s Eye Lift Firming Treatment. It’s the first in the brand’s Professional Collection and seriously packs a punch, fighting lines to deliver filler-like results (without that fake look). It’s a cool product; apply a thick layer of gel under the eyes before applying eye pads to help all the goodness soak in. Leave for 10 minutes to reveal firmer, de-puffed eyes. Bye bye bags.

CHISEL CHEEKS >>

Cheat your way to killer cheekbones with Clarins’ new limited edition Contouring Palette & Brush. The sleek palette houses three shades to suit all skin tones (no orange hues here) – a matte beige to highlight and illuminate, a bronze to add depth and sculpt, and a rosy shade to perk up cheeks. The nifty brush is perfectly shaped to the contours of the face and jawline.

SLEEP EASY >>

It’s time to wind down and get some proper sleep! Grab yourself a pillow spray to help you drift off into a peaceful (great smelling) slumber – ones like Neal’s Yard Goodnight Pillow Mist. It’s packed with gentle, organic essential oils, such as lavender, vetitver and geranium, for a light, soothing mist. No soaked pillows with this one.
