● Don't wear skirts in shiny fabrics or with extra detailing, such as pleats.
● Do wear larger accessories rather than dainty to balance out your derrière.
● Don't wear colours below your waist that are lighter or brighter than those above.
● Do wear a statement top to divert the eye upwards.

Blame the slowdown in collagen and elastin production, but lip thinning is a reality for us all as time goes by. The good news is, you don’t have to resort to needles to get the plump back in your pout. Dr Oliver Skin Plumping Balm (£18 for 10ml, uk.spacenk.com) claims to increase lip volume in four weeks. It leaves lips softer and smoother, too.
Apply a dab of gloss to the middle of your lips – it will make them look instantly plumper.

Applying a strengthener can help too. O.P.I Original Nail Envy (£18.55, www.johnlewis.com) can turn around weak talons in less than a month.
Taking good care of your nails can make all the difference, so try not to use them as tools, and be sure to wear gloves when doing the housework or gardening.
It’s estimated that 90 per cent of women have the dimpled look of cellulite, but that doesn’t mean we have to grin and bear it. Massaging in a lotion every day can help.

Etat Pur Caffeine Pur Active A90 (from £11.30 for 50ml, www.etatpur.co.uk) has a patented system to deliver the fat-busting caffeine deep into the skin.
Drink more water, try dry body brushing, keep active and reduce your salt intake.
