Beauty: where to find the best-kept secrets — I am extremely fortunate in that I get to see and try all the new beauty releases months before they go on sale. But very often, my most satisfying research takes place independently.

Beauty: face masks that won’t break the bank — I consider face masks to be a nice-to-have rather than a need-to-have, and, if you are anything like me, a relatively infrequent treat, too. This means I sometimes hesitate to recommend costly versions, because I know how easy it is to leave months between application, only to open the bathroom cabinet and find a dried-up, slightly smelly mask waiting for a bin to put it out of its misery.

Beauty: bath products to soften dry winter skin — Even unproblematic skins can become horribly dry in winter. Sore shins, flaky arms and greyish knees and elbows are, for many, as part and parcel of January as an extra 5lbs and persistent, low-level ennui. The latter makes me want to wallow nightly in a hot bath that, though temporarily comforting, exacerbates the dryness, and so we continue..

Life - Sali Hughes on Celebrity Big Brother and the epidemic of Telling It Like it Is — Like many people I know, I currently find myself in the unexpected predicament of being hooked on Celebrity Big Brother for the first time post-Davina. This year's line-up has me gripped, often in horror, at the housemates' excruciatingly tense dynamic and constant losses of temper.

Beauty: it’s a knockout - the only eye lift you really need — Over two decades ago, when I was working as a makeup assistant, I was taught to deploy a number of "anti-ageing" techniques developed in Hollywood and the theatre.

Makeup in middle age: is it time to bin your red lipstick? — When Gwyneth Paltrow launched her own organic makeup line this week, the actress said she had started wearing makeup more often since turning 40. I can't say my habits have changed much since my 40th last February. I still lead the same double-life when it comes to beauty: four days on, three days off, or vice versa.

Life - Sali Hughes in praise of celebrities telling the truth — At the end of last week, I - and everyone else on Twitter, seemingly - read a rundown of supermodel Gisele and NFL star husband Tom Brady's diet, by their private chef Allen Campbell, in American Vogue.

@TanyaBurr @Pixiwoos God yes. All sorted. I've helped organise funerals where the person was too ill and weak to choose. Horrible.
