4 the last people to hear about coronavirus?

IF CURRENT EVENTS make you want to stick your head in the sand, you might envy one group who, until recently, were blissfully unaware of the spread of coronavirus: the contestants on German Big Brother. Having entered the house in early February, with no contact with the outside world since, the 14 housemates were oblivious to the fact that, in Germany alone, there had been 6,000 cases and 13 deaths. Producers broke the news in a special episode last Monday, when housemates were shown footage bringing them up to speed, before seeing video messages from friends and family. It was an eerie situation to unfold on reality TV, and bore a spooky resemblance to the plot of Channel 4’s 2008 drama Dead Set, written by a pre-Black Mirror Charlie Brooker (although that…

9 like kate beckinsale, i was bullied at work

LAST WEEK, Kate Beckinsale spoke out about her experience of being bullied by Harvey Weinstein in 2001 – reporting that he’d verbally abused her during a kids’ playdate for wearing a suit rather than a dress to the premiere of one of his films. She said the incident had shaken her and that she felt haunted by the lack of recourse for his type of behaviour. While the former film titan was recently sentenced to 23 years for rape and sexual assault, when it came to his workplace bullying, Kate pointed out this ‘falls under no felony. But I was punished for it.’ She’s right: this needs to change for us all – whether it’s Weinstein or another who’s your bully of a boss. I know what it’s like to stay…

micro dosing

If your bathroom shelf is stocked with more lotions and potions than ever before and yet your skin still feels like it needs some TLC, chances are you could be overdoing it with the products. That’s where microdosing comes in. The idea is to strip back your routine and use smaller quantities of your skincare, building it up and allowing time for skin to breathe. Skincare experts at Sisters Beauty Lounge particularly recommend this approach with potent or active ingredients, such as AHAs and vitamin C. ‘As your skin becomes more comfortable with the product being introduced, gradually increase the amount of solution you are using up to what is recommended for that particular product.’…

hot style hacks

HERO HOSIERY Can’t wait until summer to wear your sandals? Team them with tights now for a nod to the new season. Colour clashes earn extra kudos. BETTER TOGETHER The catwalk has put loafers back in the driving seat this season. The loafer/sock combo was spotted everywhere from Fendi to Lacoste, giving a masterclass on how to rework a classic. WEAR A TIE The way to wear lace-up sandals now is over smart trousers. Look for trouser styles that are tapered to avoid excess material. TUCK SHOP The boot + trouser combo has certified itself as a big hit on and off the catwalk. Look for slim trousers rather than skinnies to be on point for spring.…
