Where’s that tomato?
Chlorine can damage your hair, especially if you’re blonde or have highlights. It can also add an awful greenish tinge.

To protect your colour, coat your hair with leave-in conditioner or sesame oil before swimming. Always remember to rinse your hair after getting out the pool and wash in cold water to boost shine.

For a post-swim remedy, coat your hair and your scalp in tomato juice for 5-10 minutes before washing with shampoo and conditioner. This will help fade the greenish hue if you have one.

 

Three habits that cause wrinkles

Sleeping on your stomach or side
Did you know that doctors recommend sleeping on your back to prevent back and neck pain, reduce acid reflux, maintain perkier breasts… and minimise facial wrinkles?
Rubbing your eyes
Dermatologists agree, the skin around your eyes is the most delicate skin on your body. Treating that area roughly will likely result in wrinkles and sagging.
Eating too much sugar
The connections between sugar and weight gain or sugar and cavities are well documented, but eating excessive amounts of sugar may also make you look older. Sugar causes hormonal changes in the body which damage your collagen and elastin fibres.
