welcome to the issue

ONE OF THE MANY wonderful things about working at Grazia is being able to (regularly) pick the brains of the brilliant beauty team on the best products to buy. Realising how often we all do this in the office prompted us to launch The Skintellectuals Awards; in this week’s issue the most respected people in the industry share their one product they can’t live without – and we hope you’ll fall in love with them too. Indeed, this week’s issue is dedicated to all manner of lotions and treatments to give your skin the best glow possible. Give them a try – and let us know your thoughts. @hattie_brett / feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk…

over to you...

I so agree that dads get all the praise for doing what mums do all the time. When my daughter goes on a girls’ holiday, her children have to be farmed out to (female) relatives, who all work, because the dads are seen as not being able to cope for more than a few hours. In fact, women seem to actively encourage it. It needs to stop. Men must take more responsibility for childcare. Anna TALKING THERAPY It was refreshing to read about grief in Things You Only Know If You’re An Adult Orphan (15 Apr). It’s something we need to discuss more. I lost my partner and parents in the space of three years. I’d never experienced the death of someone close before and it hit me like a tsunami of…

the unsung heroes

I’m currently on a train to Manchester (to catch up with a friend), reading Enough! No more praising dads for doing the basics (29 Apr). I rushed about madly last night and this morning to leave my husband alone for one night. It’s been a mission to sort out after-school childcare, leave uniforms all ready for tomorrow and dinner prepped in the fridge and, just for an added bonus, I cleaned the kitchen floor four minutes before having to leave the house! Does he know how much prep one night required? Not a clue. However, I’m sure tomorrow it will be praise all round when he drops the kids off at school in the correct uniform. It’s definitely time to give much more kudos to the mums who do it…

Another week, another seemingly random craze trending on social media. This time, everyone from Piers Morgan to MPs and university professors have tweeted lists of ‘five jobs I’ve had’ – with Derry Girls’ Nicola Coughlan jokingly claiming stints as a ‘house elf ’ and ‘body double for The Rock’. The reason for the trend? That’s still hazy, but some have suggested the lists will help tackle career stress for those in need of a bit of direction. That’s great if it encourages people stuck in jobs they hate to make the switch, but let’s hope it doesn’t turn into another ‘look how far I’ve come’ social media humble-brag. They just leave people feeling worse about themselves, rather than inspired.…

LAST WEEK, A NEW verb was introduced to the Urban Dictionary. To ‘Meghan Markle’ someone denotes the ditching of a friend who has stopped serving your purposes. While this might sound like a vicious, unsubstantiated slight upon the character of the heavily pregnant duchess – I’m not sure it necessarily is. I myself have a long, proud history of behaviour the Urban Dictionary would deem Markle’esque. I’ve walked away from a lot of people – almost always women – with whom I’d once been close. I have dropped, ghosted, tactically fizzled and strategically distanced. The corpses of former friendships litter the ditches on my path through life like roadkill. The sanctity of female friendship is a… no, actually, it’s the central tenet of contemporary, everyday feminism; the feminism of Instagram quotes,…
