How to Get Rid of Scaly Lips

If you suffer from scaly lips, a simple do-it-yourself trick to exfoliate them takes only a finger scoop of Vaseline and an old toothbrush.

Step 1: Slather lips with petroleum jelly
Step 2: Use a toothbrush to massage in the jelly in a circular motion.
Step 3: Wipe off the excess petroleum jelly.
Take a toothbrush to your lips, massaging in the jelly in a circular motion. Wipe off any excess petroleum jelly.

The toothbrush exfoliates lips while the petroleum jelly leaves lips extra soft. Repeat a couple times a day until your lips are no longer scaly.

Want a more professional exofoliator that's perfect for the purse? Try The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ, a sugar scrub created just for the lips. The results are similar to my Vaseline and toothbrush trick, but it frankly tastes so great (I love the peppermint flavor) and leaves lips so soft and supple I think Sara should add a "Warning: May be Addictive" message on her label. Makes a great gift for any discerning friend.

Guerlain -Powder Room Envy

A dressing-table delight, Guerlain's gorgeous Tajine Metal Eye Shadows come in three shades and go beyond skin flattery. Blonde, Brunette and Dark Metal tones with a superfine shimmer texture are easy to blend and add beautiful depth to your eyes.

The compact Eastern-inspired packaging, with an inset brush, offers such eye-candy it deserves top of the pile status in your make-up bag. This is a limited edition range and well worth running to Selfridges in stilettos to purchase.

The new Products are coming through.. I am ready to use them, smell them, apply them .. I love new products :)

Although we’re obsessed with our own beauty regimes, we also take a healthy interest in those of our menfolk too and so were intrigued to hear about Givenchy’s latest fragrance for men, Play. Packaged in a funky iPod-style bottle, complete with ‘forward’ and ‘rewind’ bottles, the scent features notes of bergamot, vetiver, mandarin and pink pepper, which give it a sexy, masculine feel with a fresh edge. Justin Timberlake is the charismatic face of the fragrance and recorded a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot for the campaign – think jets, sports cars and Justin doing his thing in moody black and white shots. You can watch the exclusive clip right now at GQ.COM. Stockist enquiries: 01932 233824, www.givenchy.com
