IF PROOF WERE NEEDED of the restorative power of beauty, 2020 delivered it in spades: not least with the pictures of women rushing to hairdressers post lockdown. Indeed, when we asked you to tell us how this year has shaped your habits, nine out of 10 of you said your beauty routine had been a vital form of self-care through challenging times. So this Beauty Issue is dedicated to feeling good – and it’s fronted by six women who’ve mastered the art of that this year. Hundreds of you posted stories of self-confidence when we launched our first ever social-media casting, asking you to share how you’d owned your beauty. Our panel of experts had the unenviable task of whittling them down to six, who were invited to a socially-distanced…

over to you...

Have your say… Email us at feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk Find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @GraziaUK Even as someone who used to go to illegal raves in the ’90s, I was pretty shocked to read in your speakeasies article an interviewee compare lockdown parties to illegal raves. You can’t compare Covid – where peoples’ lives are at risk – to illegal raves or American prohibition in the 1920s. It just makes me think people like this are incredibly selfish. If they looked at the bigger picture, they would realise that having these parties will just ensure lockdown goes on for longer, which will impact our economy even more, which in turn will lead to more unemployment in the future. People their age were fighting for their lives in WWII and they moan…

raving covidiots

I read ‘Strictly no Insta’ – welcome to the 21st century’s speakeasies (16 Nov, about parties during lockdown), seven days into a 10-day self-isolation. I’m deeply disappointed by the irresponsibility of the people you interviewed, and hope their poor attitude doesn’t encourage others to break the rules. No one is enjoying this second lockdown. I haven’t seen my family in Ireland for nearly a year, and know so many people making major sacrifices to keep others safe. While mortality rates are lower for the young, we aren’t immune to the devastating impacts of the virus, including long-Covid. And an asymptomatic carrier can infect others more susceptible to the disease. All of us who can should be staying at home. The more we do, the sooner we’ll get through this. Christine…

Thank you, Obama, for bringing the hope “First we were given positive news about the Covid-19 vaccine and now Barack Obama’s book is out – proof that this year is gradually, finally, starting to look up. In A Promised Land , the former President offers his thoughts on how to heal the deep divisions in America and make democracy work for everyone – pertinent timing given the rancorous US election and Trump’s subsequent attempts to undermine confidence in the result. Obama’s message of optimism has never felt so necessary and, as expected, the book is full of it. Let’s hope he can point the way to a more promising future, as he did on his own election day.”…

abortion rights: yet another victim of the covid crisis

THE PROBLEM WITH the news being dominated by just two stories, each so epic that, under normal circs, only one would get a look-in (Trump and The Big C-One-Nine, duh) – is: nothing else gets covered. Stories that should light up our bulletins like Christmas are overlooked. Take Poland, which, at the time of writing, was trembling in a state of beautiful, broiling civil unrest, after the ruling right-wing Law & Justice Party (the PiS) discovered its people weren’t going to take an attempt to ban abortion lying down. Poland already had some draconian laws on abortion; on 22 October, its Constitutional Tribunal ruled that terminating a pregnancy on the grounds of severe foetal abnormality would no longer be lawful (leaving everyone’s faves – rape and incest – the only legal grounds).…
