Fashion: Praise the Lauder!
The alchemists at Estée Lauder are known for their miracle-working serums. And their latest treatment, Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator, promises (as if its name doesn't already tell you everything you need to know) to brighten skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and clear up outbreaks. In other words, it makes you look like one of those healthy, outdoorsy types. And hurrah for that! From £46, esteelauder.co.uk
