They were big news back in the 1950s, but now tiger nuts are making a comeback, after being dubbed the ‘new superfood.’ As well as being high in iron, potassium, magnesium and vitamins C and E, the food, which is actually a plant rather than a nut has also become popular with dieters because it acts as an appetite suppresser. It’s thought the tiger nuts could actually be the world’s first superfood, as they made up 80 per cent of the diet of ‘nutcracker man’, who lived two million years ago, according to research published by Oxford University.
If, like most of us you rarely get round to cleaning your makeup brushes, then this handy new gadget could be for you. The Lilumia, a makeup brush-cleaning machine is currently only available in the US, but it’s been so successful it doesn’t look like it’ll be long before it makes its way to Britain. The device, which washes brushes in just 15 minutes, removing bacteria, dirt and makeup claims to be more effective than hand washing thanks to its rubber brush agitator that rotates and oscillates your brushes – causing no damage to the hairs or handles.
While Botox is still a hugely popular treatment, a new revolutionary anti-ageing procedure could be set to take its place. Silhoutte Soft is the first non-surgical skin lift which is designed to redefine the face for those looking for reduced wrinkles and restored volume providing an extremely discrete and natural-looking result. Plus, it leaves the face completely mobile. The procedure is carried out using local anaesthetic, takes less than an hour and the results last for up to two years. Celebrities, such as actress Gillian Taylforth are already huge advocates of the treatment, which costs from £1,500. www.silhouette-soft.com
