Every now and then a new product is launched that gets over night cult status and is hailed as the next ‘must-have’ product. Boots had their No 7 Protect and Perfect Beauty Serum and now Superdrug have Swiss Apple Overnight Skin Renewal Serum.

This revolutionary new anti-aging product gives the term ‘an apple a day’ a whole new meaning and is flying off the Superdrug shelves.

Clinical trials showed a significant decrease in wrinkle depth for 100% of the subjects! The facts speak for themselves…

So why the hype for Superdrug? Well that’s down to the cost… Superdrug are offering their product for lesss than a fifth of their retail costs at £9.99*.

Did it happen recently, and are you still suffering from the consequences?

THE Nail Doctor nail care tips

I have just got back from holiday and my nails have definately seen better days! The sun, sea, chlorine and gripping too hard on my glass of sangria have taken its toll. They are brittle, dry and keep splitting – I think its now my nails turn for a bit of TLC. So I am taking them to see The Nail Doctor!

The experts at THE Nail Doctor have been keeping our nails in top condition for years with their fab nail problem solutions. So, we asked them for their hot tips to keep your nails in talon perfect condition.

Check out their top nail care tips below:

1. Always wear a base coat-especially when wearing dark/bright colours

2. Never over buff nails-gentle buffing once a week for visible ridges/splits is plenty

3. Preferably remove cuticles with the appropriate product rather than cutting them off-this causes cuticles to grow back thicker and faster.

4. If a dark polish fan, try to give nails a break and go bare for a day or two. Pigments dry out the nail and can be the cause of ridges and splits.

5. Get into the habit of massaging a nail oil into your nails before bed-you’ll notice the difference

Plus they checked our nails into rehab to get them back to full health. For 10 days THE Nail Doctors have prescribed me with THE Nail Doctor Rescue Me, a strengthening duo of basecoat to nourish think, weak nails followed by Rock on Hardener to create a durable protective barrier from damage.

I am going to start applying the treatment tonight and will feedback on the results!

THE Nail Doctor products can be bought nationwide at Boots.

Beauty Tip: How to tan, safely!

Every week we will be giving you expert beauty and make up advice from the resident LatestinBeauty expert, Lina Cameron.

Our first tip is how to tan...safely!

We all know when summer is “supposedly” here. Supermarkets, pharmacies and beauty stores line their shelves with sun protection products. Milky textured, oily smooth, sweet smelling lotions and potions get us in the holiday mood.

However, though easily forgotten, the best advice I can give is to use a sunscreen every day come rain, hail or shine.

Through progressive education we have come to learn that the negative impacts of the sun’s harmful rays are not reserved for the months of June to September – holiday season. Instead rays are present all year round. Even on cloudy days!

THE SCIENCE BIT: There are two types of rays in particular we should be weary of.

UVB Rays: These penetrate until the superficial layers of the skin. They are responsible for delayed tanning and burning; in addition to these short-term effects they enhance skin ageing and significantly promote the development of skin cancer.

UVA Rays: These are more powerful and penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. They are responsible for the immediate tanning effect and can also contribute to skin ageing and wrinkling. Recent studies have found that UVA rays may be responsible for inducing skin cancer. For this reason the industry has started producing sunscreens that will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB radiation.

From an early age make the application of sunscreen an integral part of your beauty regime. Prevention is always better than cure and I consider SPF 45 a MUST HAVE! Don’t be put off by the high factor number, long gone are the days of thick creams that never seem to absorb. There are now foams, oils, gels and sprays. I love Linda Meredith SPF 45 because it’s so light in texture, smells amazing and is the perfect base for make-up.

I am not a lover of this time of year, but seeing all the new make up ranges hitting the stores is making life a little more bearable.
