1   1  If you wear make-up every day wash your brushes once a week using shampoo and conditioner. Cloggy brushes can result in your make up looking cloggy and dull.

2   2 Another tip for those who wear make up on a daily basis… at least once a week don’t put on any night cream products. It will be one of the few chances your skin actually gets to breathe.

  3 Prone to spots and blemishes? Of have you got teenagers with skin problems? Make sure you change the pillow cases every other night to help keep the skin clean.

   4 When you moisturise, don’t forget your neck! Amazing how easy it is just to concentrate on your face and not go below the jawline – but it’s your neck that will age first if left to its own devices!

5  5 If you’ve got unruly hair like mine and you’re on the go a lot it’s worth spending a few quid on a travel size hairdryer. My hair kinks and curls in all the wrong directions (especially in humid or rainy weather) and my teeny tiny hairdryer and barrel brush have often been invaluable. Of course a power socket is handy (OK, essential). Why can’t someone invent a hairdryer that runs on batteries?.

BEAUTY MAY sometimes be only skin deep but having amazing skin is either genetic or something you really need to work at. Having struggled with my skin in my teens, and wanting to keep a youthful glow into my forties without resorting to the surgeon’s knife, I am always on the lookout for something new.

The buzzword of 2016 seems to be Glutathione. It’s a substance that is naturally produced by the liver and is also found in fruit, vegetables and in tuna, turkey and beef.

As well as giving a fantastic glow to your skin, Glutathione has many other health benefits. Studies show it helps with chronic fatigue syndrome, lung disease, and it also helps boost the immune system. Over time, it can help whiten skin, it has great anti-ageing properties and can help repair damage to cells caused by stress. 

The supplement contains three amino acids - glycine, glutamate and cysteine. Many of these are found naturally in breast milk, often sought after by body builders and athletes. 

I discovered it when I saw a friend who’d been taking the amino acid by IV drip – her skin had such a glow and there was a real spring in her step that made her look years younger.

I really wanted to give it a go too. I have a sensitive stomach and pills usually do not work for me, but my budget certainly wouldn’t stretch to visits to an IV drip clinic, not with two teenage daughters bring up. So I hit Google and after a bit of research discovered that it was possible to take Glutathione by suppository. In fact, that’s a popular way to administer it in France and China. At £190 for 1500mg, it sounded a good option.

Glutathione is best taken overnight. Make sure your bowls are clear, then administer a small amount of lubricant (Vaseline or KY) and insert the suppository. It might sound a little unpleasant but honestly, it’s fine. Once that’s done, get ready for a good night’s sleep as your body soaks up the goodness.

It may have been psychosomatic, but I’m sure I slept better than I had in months the first time I used it. After five days using it every night, I began to notice the effect on my skin. A pal asked who was doing my facials, as my skin looked so amazing. 

At first I just laughed, but even my mum said a few weeks later that everything about me looked younger and fresher. You don’t need to do it every night – my best friend does every other night and still gets results. After a few months I might switch to doing that, but for now I am enjoying the quick results.

It can take a little time to get used to using suppositories but for me it quickly became part of my bedtime routine.

Being a vegetarian, perhaps my diet had been lacking, or maybe as a busy single mum I was a little run down, but everything about me feels better after using Glutathione. I let my mum in on the secret and she’s trying it too. It’s definitely worth the investment and it’s now my Number One beauty secret.
