From the perfect grooming gifts for men to make-up for the party season and hydration creams, we answer all of your beauty-related questions.

Q.) My husband is hard enough to buy gifts for but now his father is coming to stay with us over the festive season and I have to buy him something too, help!

A.)  If there’s a one size fits all gift for family it’s definitely a grooming box set. Perfumes, soaps or hand creams will work for a mother-in-law, sisters or cousins, just as skincare, scent or shaving presents are a sure winner for the men in your family. Haute grooming haunt 1847 has some upscale sets in stock at the moment as well as gift vouchers for a range on pampering treatments, get him both and you cant go wrong.

Q.) I’m training hard for the Nike Run DXB event next month but since I’ve stepped up my exercise game my skin keeps breaking out, is this because of the sweat?

A.)  If you’re using the same face towel to dry your forehead it could potentially cause a bout of blemishes but the most important factor to remember when your working out is to up your water intake. For obvious reasons it’s good for your body but it’s also great for your skin.  The added water intake will help keep spots at bay by flushing out any build up of toxins. When you’re having a break from the gym try to use moisturising facial and skin treatments to help lock in the hydration.

Q.) The invitations are flooding in for the party season and I need to restock my make-up bag, on a budget – where should I go?

A.)  I would say you only need three fail-safe items to get you through the season – a hard working foundation, a lightweight powder and a flattering red lip. One of Germany’s top make-up brands Misslyn has just landed on our shores so if you’re looking to stock up on the essentials, and more, I would suggest you check them out and snap up one of their famous ColourKiss Lip Balms, an unrivalled clutch bag essential.
