I use it as a body shimmer…

THE C WORD

Colonics. It often raises eyebrows when I say I’m a fan. And so I wanted to get to the, ahem, bottom of this. Before my first experience, over fifteen years ago, I had the same nagging questions as everyone else. What are the benefits? How does it work? Will it hurt???

BE A GLOW HOE . . . WITH CHLOE LEWIS

  Chloe, which three beauty items could you not live without? I’d have to choose a Chloe Lewis Beauty lipstick and highlighter. I’m massively into my make-up but lately I’ve been enjoying wearing just a slight touch of concealer and bronzer, with a highlighter on top. Charlotte Tilbury’s bronzer is amazing!

LISA LOVES . . . SUNKISSED SKIN WHILE I SLEEP

  Over the years, I’ve had my fair share of fake tan disasters – Oompa Loompa orange, streaky legs, stained hands – so these days I choose products carefully. I’m also adverse to that biscuity whiff most bronze from a bottle gives off. Apart from that, I look for an easy to apply, natural-looking glow in a formula that doesn’t end up all…
