Spinach Although spinach grows year-round, the spring crop is unrivalled for its delicate, sweet-tasting leaves. Baby spinach is tender enough to eat raw, while more mature leaves benefit from cooking. To prepare, wash thoroughly and pat dry. Bear in mind that the quantity will reduce significantly once cooked, so use more than you think you need. This versatile green leaf can be sautéed, steamed, blanched or eaten raw. Add to smoothies, or wilt with a little cream and some freshly grated nutmeg for the perfect side.

Ma y harvest Pineapple Grown in sunny Costa Rica, this sweet-sour tropical fruit has yellow flesh protected by a spiky skin. It might surprise you to learn that pineapples grow on leafy plants, close to the ground – not on trees. To prep, cut off the leafy crown, then trim the skin from top to bottom. Cut diagonal v-shaped grooves to remove the ‘eyes’, then slice into quarters and remove the tough core. Slice or chop the flesh ready for eating. Fresh pineapple works well in sweet and savoury recipes. Try it in a spicy salsa, tropical pavlova or a cocktail.

Asparagus The brief British asparagus season runs from April to June and produces flavoursome, tender spears. Look for firm stalks with a bright green colour and closed tips. Trim the woody ends before cooking. Pair asparagus with light, summery flavours, such as olive oil and lemon, to let its earthy taste shine. Try it grilled and garnished with Parmesan shavings, or bake into a ricotta and mint tart.

Ma y harvest Jersey Royals Rich, Jersey soil gives these baby spuds their nutty flavour. The short, but sweet, harvest runs from April to July, so enjoy them while you can. Jersey Royals have EU PDO (Protected of Designation Origin) status, which means only potatoes grown on the Island can take the name. The edible skins are full of flavour and nutrients, so give them a quick scrub to remove dirt, but don’t peel. To get the best from these delicate spuds, simply steam or boil. Serve with melted butter or in a potato salad.

C O OK

When it comes to spreading on toast, crumpets, or stirring into porridge, take your pick of set, clear or raw. For cooking, clear honeys, such as acacia or wildflower, are easier for measuring and pouring.

Most honeys can be stored in the cupboard for up to a year. They crystallise at different rates, but putting the jar in hot water will return it to its liquid state. Crystallisation won’t affect the quality.

Honey can be used in place of sugar in many sweet and savoury dishes – amounts will vary so use a recipe to get the balance right. Try it in baking, such as cakes and muffins, drinks, glazes, marinades and more.

PATRICK ROBINSON, UK OPERATIONS DIRECTOR FOR ROWSE HONEY Tell us a little about Rowse The company was established in 1938 by a beekeeper named Tony Rowse. What began as a hobby at his Oxfordshire home soon became a full-time business. Today our production site in Wallingford employs more than 200 people. We take honey from all over the world and turn it into finished products. Do bees make honey? Honey comes from the nectar of flowering plants. The honeybees remove the nectar a drop at a time and return it to the hive. There, it’s combined with enzymes produced by the worker bees and stored in a structure consisting of hexagonal wax cells, known as honeycomb. Over time, the warm draft caused by all the flapping bee wings turns the nectar into honey. The honeycomb is then removed by beekeepers, who scrape off the wax and extract the honey. What’s the difference between clear and set honeys? Clear honey is gently warmed until all the sugars are dissolved, whereas set honey is produced by churning and chilling to create a soft, smooth finish. Eventually both varieties will return to their natural granulated state. Why has honey remained so popular? For so many reasons: it’s a natural alternative to sugar, it’s versatile and delicious – a little pot of nature, if you like. 14

C HO O S E


Va r i eti e s ACACIA

A light, clear honey, acacia is produced from nectar collected from the black locust plant. It’s popular, due to its mild, delicate floral taste, and is great for sweetening drinks as it won’t alter the flavour. Acacia is slow to crystalise.

WILD FLOWER

This honey is made using the nectar of a variety of wild flowers local to a hive. The colour and taste will vary according to the types of flowers nearby, but it is generally considered a sweet, medium honey.

MANUKA

Produced only from the manuka bushes in New Zealand, manuka contains an antibacterial property known as NPA (non peroxide activity), which is rated by strength – the higher the rating, the better it is for you. It has a slightly herbaceous taste.

SET

Honey that is crystallised under controlled conditions is known as set honey (see interview, left). It’s essentially the same as clear honey with no nutritional difference, except that it has been churned until thick, creamy and spreadable.

BLENDED

The most widely available honey on the shelves is generally called ‘clear honey’. This type is blended, meaning two or more types of honey – differing in nectar source, colour, flavour and geographic origin – have been mixed together.

RAW

Raw honey has come straight from the hive, without being heated or pasteurised, and is simply passed through a filter before being put into jars. It’s honey in its most natural state and contains enzymes, which add to its aroma.

jam making Capture the flavours of summer with a batch of homemade jam. Once you’ve mastered the basic technique, you can swap the fruit to make all kinds of varieties. Use the same amount of blackberries or cherries as you would gooseberries, and the same method as below, or use 1kg (2Ib) stoned and quartered plums and boil for 6 minutes. G O O S E B E R RY JA M Makes 3 x 500g (1lb) jars Takes 45-50 mins, plus cooling Cost per serve 21p knob butter, for greasing 1kg (2lb) fresh gooseberries, topped and tailed 1kg (2lb) granulated sugar

1 Grease the base of a large, heavy based pan with butter. Put the gooseberries in the pan with 150ml (5fl oz) water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the fruit is tender.

cross stitching 2 Stir in the sugar. Continue cooking, over a low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes, or until the sugar has completely dissolved with no granules remaining. Bring the mixture back to the boil and cook rapidly for 7-8 minutes. 3 To test if your jam has reached setting point, spoon a little onto a fridge-chilled saucer and let it cool a little. Push the mixture with your finger – if the skin crinkles, it’s ready. If not, return the pan to the hob and boil for 2-3 minutes more, then test again. Repeat as necessary. 4 Spoon the mixture into 3 x 500g (1lb) sterilised jars (see top tip, below) and tighly seal with the lids. Leave to cool before labelling. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months. Once opened, keep chilled and consume within 1 month. Each tbsp contains Energy

Just like knitting, embroidery is enjoying a new lease of life. Practise the three steps below to help you learn how to do a basic cross stitch, then download the template at tes.co/crossstitch to make the tree (p25) or ‘Home sweet home’ pattern (pictured right). You will need Cross-stitch fabric; a needle; scissors; embroidery yarn Step 1 Select a starting point on your embroidery fabric. Thread a needle with your chosen yarn and, starting at the bottom left corner of your first square, thread the yarn up, before taking it back through the top right corner of the square. Bring the needle back up through the bottom left-hand corner of the next square, directly beneath your last stitch, and then back through the top right. Continue to create a line of 3 forward slashes. Step 2 When you’ve sewn the right number of stitches, reverse the process to create a cross per square. Thread the yarn through from the back of the fabric to the front, starting at the bottom right and returning it back through the top left corner of each square. Step 3 To cast off, thread the needle through the last two stitches (so the yarn is on the reverse of the fabric) and cut off the overhang.

training climbing plants Master climbing plants and you’ll soon be growing your own summer fruits and vegetables. Climbers are great for covering walls and fences, or for adding height to your garden. Step 1 Choose your climbing plant: peas and beans look lovely and provide a steady crop throughout the summer. If you’re after blooms, clematis gives a stunning display. For beginners, Find other great ideas it’s best to buy for livening up small potted plants outdoor spaces at or plugs rather tes.co/verticalgarden. than seeds.

On the up

Step 2 Put up a climbing structure. A ready-made obelisk is easy as you can drive it directly into the ground or a large pot. To decorate a wall you’ll need a trellis. Mount it so it’s not tight against the wall, to enable vines to wind around it.

Rules to remember Now that you’ve grasped the basics, choose a pattern and follow these rules to cross stitch like a pro.

● Always work horizontally, from left to right.

● Don’t forget to leave plenty of room in either direction of the starting point to continue the stitch.

● For shapes that aren’t straight, such as the curve of a letter, keep to a clockwise motion.

Sew social

If you’ve got the knack, join (or start) a local embroidery club. You’ll pick up ideas, improve your skills and get to meet new people, too.

● A filled-in square on a template should match a square on the fabric, so count spaces between sections to get the pattern right.

Step 3 If you’re planting into the ground, dig a hole at least 30cm (1ft) away from walls, so rain can reach the roots. Add some compost to the hole and dig in your plant. Using garden twine, tie shoots to the base of the trellis or obelisk. Step 4 Water your climbing plant thoroughly and keep it well watered for the first few months to help it become established. Step 5 Tie on new growth as it comes in. When the climber has formed thick and woody stems, you can remove the ties.

growing micro herbs The Little Veggie Patch Co’s DIY Garden Projects (Hardie Grant Books, £20) says these mini greens aren’t just for posh restaurants. They’re easy to grow and you don’t have to wait long for your crop to flourish.

Step 1 Choose what to grow, using regular vegetable seeds. Step 2 Fill a shallow tray (you can even use an old roasting tin) with seed-raising mix, which drains more freely than standard potting soil. Step 3 Scatter your seeds over the soil and add a fine mist of water using a spray bottle. Don’t worry too much about spacing as you’ll be harvesting before there’s any need to thin the plants out. It’s a good idea to stagger sowing your seeds over a few weeks, as this will give you a continuous supply of fresh herbs. Step 4 Position the tray in a sunny spot, such as on a windowsill. Keep the soil damp (but not wet) by spraying twice a day. Step 5 Your seedlings will sprout baby leaves, which shed quickly. Hang in there for the next set of true leaves (usually within two or three weeks), which you can harvest and eat right away.

baking bread Making your own bread is easier than it sounds – and who can resist the aroma of a freshly baked loaf?

F R E S H W H I T E LOA F Serves 16 Takes 1 hr, plus proving Cost per serve 11p 500g (1lb) strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting 25g (1oz) butter 1 tbsp sugar 1 x 7g sachet dried yeast oil, for greasing

1 Put the flour in a large mixing bowl and add the butter. Rub together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. 2 Add the sugar, 1 tsp salt and the yeast. Gradually pour in 325ml (11fl oz) warm water, mixing continuously to form a soft dough.

28

3 Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead well for 10 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Return the dough to the mixing bowl and cover loosely with lightly oiled clingfilm. Leave in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size. 4 Grease a 1kg (2lb) loaf tin. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead again. Transfer to the prepared tin and loosely cover with a fresh sheet of oiled clingfilm. Set aside in a warm place and leave to prove for about 30 minutes, or until it has doubled in size again, almost filling the tin. 5 Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Make 3 shallow incisions across the top of the dough (this will ensure it rises evenly in the oven). Sprinkle the surface with flour and bake for 30-35 minutes, until risen and golden and the base sounds hollow when tapped. Each serving contains Energy

Step 1 Using a pen, draw your chosen shape on the sponge. You’ll need one sponge per shape. To produce the geometric effect pictured, go for simple squares, circles, rectangles and triangles.

Step 2 Cut around your outline, until you’re left with the desired shape. Leave a larger part at the top to grip.

These tea towels make a great gift – try personalising them with the recipient’s initials or a special date

Step 3 Dip the sponge in the fabric paint, making sure all the edges are covered, before pressing it carefully onto the tea towel. You may need to repeat this a few times initially until the sponge soaks up the paint evenly. Repeat until the tea towel is filled with different shapes and colours. Keep the formation random or try printing the shapes in a zig-zag pattern. Step 4 Following the guidelines on the fabric paint, leave to dry. If the edges still aren’t neat enough for you, perfect them using a fabric pen or small paint brush. Finally, if instructed by the brand of fabric paint you’re using, seal the paint with an iron.

How it works

Simple technology in the form of the FareShare FoodCloud app keeps the Community Food Connection scheme running smoothly. It connects Tesco stores directly with local charities and community groups. The store simply uploads details of any goodquality, unsold food so charities can come and collect it for free. This is then turned into wholesome meals for those in need. If you’d like to register your group or charity, complete the application form at fareshare.org.uk/ fareshare-foodcloud.

30

What’s on offer? Donated food typically includes fruit, veg, bread and eggs, plus some meat, cheese and yogurt – all great ingredients for healthy, filling meals.

Tesco believes that no food should go to waste: Community Food Connection, in partnership with FareShare FoodCloud, has so far donated enough food to provide thousands of meals to hundreds of charities and community groups across the UK, including homeless shelters, after-school clubs and domestic violence hostels.

What’s next? The great work achieved by Community Food Connection continues with the scheme recently launched in Glasgow, Belfast, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Swansea, Southampton, Portsmouth, Birmingham, Manchester and London – giving even more people the chance to enjoy a hot nutritious meal when they need it most.

SHED STRONG If you have a garden shed, make it into a focal point by painting it in your favourite exterior paint colour – we love this forget-me-not blue (right). If you’re looking to buy a new shed, measure the area in which you intend to position it first, and check the foundations (paving slabs or concrete) are sound. Set it away from tree branches and hedges, if possible, as they will cause wear and tear. If your shed is made of wood, apply a waterproof treatment immediately after purchase (even if it’s been treated already) and annually thereafter.

GREEN HERB AND CHILLI CO R N O N T H E CO B

Serves 6 Takes 2½ hrs, plus overnight marinating Cost per serve £2·91

Top tip

To cook the ribs indoors, put the foil parcels on a baking tray and cook for 2 hours at gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C. Finish on the barbecue or under a hot grill.

2 tbsp ground cumin 2 tbsp ground coriander 1 tbsp chilli powder 1 tbsp dried oregano 1 tsp garlic powder 1 lemon, zested 5 tbsp olive oil 3 x 700g packs pork ribs For the glaze 150ml (¼pt) balsamic vinegar 250g (8oz) cranberry sauce For the yogurt 1 x 200ml tub Greek-style yogurt ½ lemon, juiced 1 tsp fennel seeds, ground

1 In a large bowl, combine the spices, garlic powder, lemon zest and olive oil. Add the ribs and toss to coat. Transfer to a freezer bag and marinate in the fridge overnight. 2 Preheat the barbecue to low. Divide the ribs between 2 large sheets of kitchen foil. Fold the foil to make double- or triple- sealed parcels – this will ensure the juices don’t escape. Put the parcels on the grill, seal-side up. Barbecue for 1½-2 hours, until the meat is tender and comes away from the bone with a fork. Check on them every half an hour, moving them around the grill to avoid any hot spots. If they do start to catch, add a splash of water to the parcels, reseal and continue cooking. 3 To make the glaze, put the vinegar and cranberry sauce in a small pan. Bring to the boil, then gently simmer for 15 minutes, or until thickened and reduced by half. 4 Remove the ribs from the parcels, reserving the juices. Brush with the glaze and put on the barbecue for 15 minutes, turning and basting every so often, until charred and sticky. 5 Meanwhile, prepare the yogurt. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl with a little seasoning. Serve with the ribs. Each serving contains Energy

ay can only mean one thing – the great British summer is finally on its way. With two bank holidays to look forward to and, hopefully, some sunny days and warm evenings, it’s a brilliant time to get outside and enjoy some delicious, lighter wines (and great food) alfresco.

New Zealand doesn’t just produce great sauvignon blanc – it’s also started Medium dry creating some very impressive whites using pinot grigio grapes. Wairau Cove Pinot Grigio, £6, is light gold in colour and has attractive honeysuckle, peach and nectarine aromas, with background hints of spiced pear. Make sure you have a bottle or two in the fridge for the weekend and enjoy with Indian-inpired dishes, such as the Spiced king prawn pilaf (p69). 2

finest* Albariño, £7. Made from the albariño grape in the Rías Baixas Dry region of north-west Spain, this wine is incredibly fresh, with apple and pear flavours. Cool and crisp, it’s perfect for sunny days, and delicious with shellfish. 1

Warmer weather is the perfect opportunity to experiment with chilling Light and red wine. Beaujolais fruity Villages, £6, is a juicy little fruit bomb made from the gamay grape, and is medium bodied with blackcurrant and raspberry flavours. Pop it in the fridge for 30 minutes before opening, and serve with tomato-based dishes, such as ratatouille or bruschetta. B

If you love a glass of chilled 2 rosé in the fresh air, try finest* Sancerre Rosé, Medium £9. Sancerre is famous dry for its white wines made from sauvignon blanc, but the region’s favourite red grape, pinot noir, produces elegant rosé wine. With a gorgeous, delicate pink colour and flavours of summer fruit, this is fabulous with poached salmon.

finest* Steillage Riesling, £6, is a freshtasting German white with Medium a naturally lower alcohol content of 11%. With punchy peach and lemon flavours, it’s a good match for Asian dishes such as the Miso cod skewers (p65). 4

If you prefer to keep off alcohol altogether, try the new finest* Alcohol Medium Free Sparkling Chenin dry Blanc, £2·75. Made using wine grapes to ensure maximum flavour, fermentation is stopped before the natural sugars in the grape juice are converted into alcohol. This medium-dry fizz would be lovely with an alfresco lunch or afternoon tea, or poured over ice as a refreshing long drink. 2

Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the milk in a medium-sized pan and gently bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp sugar, the lemon zest and the butter. Set aside for 15 minutes to cool.

Add the egg yolks (reserving the whites for step 5) to the breadcrumb mixture and beat with a wooden spoon until combined. Arrange 6 x 250ml (8fl oz) glass ramekins on a baking tray and divide the mixture between each.

DE LICIOU S SPIN S

Whole queen of puddings To make a whole pudding instead of individual ones, put the pudding mixture in a 1 x 1·5ltr (2½pt) baking dish and cook for 25 minutes (step 3). Bake the piped meringue topping for 7-8 minutes (step 6). Chocolate and coconut Replace the whole milk with a carton of drinking coconut milk. Add 50g (2oz) desiccated coconut and 100g (3½oz) chocolate chunks to the breadcrumb mixture before stirring it into the warm milk (step 1). Scatter 15g (½oz) desiccated coconut over the piped meringue topping before baking.

Meanwhile, put the raspberry jam in a small pan and gently heat until runny. Spoon the jam evenly over the puddings, spreading it out until the sponges are completely covered. Set aside while you make the meringue.

Perfect partners

Cherry and madeira Instead of breadcrumbs, use 150g (5oz) of crumbled madeira cake (step 1) with the sugar, lemon zest and butter. Swap the raspberry jam for cherry (step 4).

72

To make the meringue topping, put the egg whites in a clean mixing bowl and beat to stiff peaks with an electric whisk. Add the remaining 60g (2½oz) sugar and continue whisking until the mixture is stiff and glossy.

DISCOVER FUN WAYS TO GET ACTIVE THIS SUMME R WITHOUT HIT TING THE GYM – OR SPENDING ANY MONEY

our health is your most valuable resource, but it needn’t cost an arm and a leg to get in shape. From exercise apps and YouTube tutorials to outdoor gyms, here’s your complete guide to getting fit – no membership fee required.

GO GREEN

The Conservation Volunteers charity hold Green Gym events – outdoor activities that build strength and fitness while contributing to the community. These might involve planting trees, sowing meadows or establishing wildlife ponds, and all sessions include a warm-up and cool down. Volunteering for conservation work means you’ll benefit from feel-good vibes, too. Find your local Green Gym at tcv.org.uk.

To the core GOT A SPARE MINUTE? ENGAGE AND STRENGTHEN YOUR CORE MUSCLES BY RAISING ONE FOOT OFF THE FLOOR, EVEN SLIGHTLY. WHETHER YOU BEND YOUR LEG OR KEEP IT STRAIGHT, THE HIGHER YOU LIFT YOUR FOOT, THE HARDER YOU’LL WORK THOSE MUSCLES.

Tune in

There are some great YouTube workouts – try Jessica SmithTV for cardio, Blogilates for pilates, Scola Dondo for dance workouts and Yoga with Adriene.

Hoover manoeuvres Crank up the tunes and turn housework into a workout. Maximise more vigorous activities, such as vacuuming, by adding squats and lunges. The key is to keep your tummy pulled in and your back straight – that way you work your core without hurting your spine.

Blaze a trail

Many parks and woods have outdoor gyms, known as ‘trim trails’ that are free to use. Find a local one at The Great Outdoor Gym Company (tgogc.com), which also shows you how to use the equipment. Warm up with five to 10 minutes of gentle cardio: use a bike or cross-trainer, or go for a jog. Move on to strength-building equipment, aiming for a balance of upper and lower body exercise. Finish with stretches to avoid stiffness.

TAKE FIVE

Couch to 5K is a free NHS running programme. The training plan consists of podcasts to guide you through runs, with music and motivation. By the end of the programme, you should be running for 30 minutes (and approximately 5km). Once you’ve hit that goal, you can move on to the Couch to 5K+. Visit nhs.uk/livewell.

Reboot your commute Arriving at the office with a run under your belt means you start the day feeling energised. Or if you don’t have the use of a shower at work, try running home, or part of the way home, instead. To get started, visit theruncommuter.com.

GET INTO TEAMS

Crunch time Think you don’t have time to get fit? Download a free 7-Minute Workout to your smartphone. All you need is a chair, and a set of dumbbells for the advanced version (although a couple of water bottles can be just as effective).Visit well. blogs.nytimes. com/projects/ workouts/.

DO SOME DESKERCISE

Deskbound at work? Try these moves: sit up straight with your feet flat and pull your stomach in, focusing on the area below your belly button. Hold for five seconds and release, repeating five times. For more exercises you can do at your desk, visit tes.co/deskexercises.

Being part of a team is great for staying on track with fitness goals. Rounders can be loads of fun, and you can burn up to 400 calories an hour while playing. Get friends together or advertise on community message boards for locals interested in forming a team.

Make a splash

Did you know that thirty minutes of backstroke can burn around 250 calories? Council pools offer affordable access, and many allow over-60s to swim for free – contact your local centre to see what’s on offer. Discover more health benefits at tes.co/swimming.

hile locating your shorts and sandals in preparation for some sun, you should think about changing your skincare, too. Prep your skin with these handy tips for a glowing complexion.

CLEANSE You may know which formulations suit your skin, but when it comes to the actual process of cleansing, make sure you do it properly, twice a day. Sali Hughes, beauty guru and author of Pretty Honest: The Straight-Talking Beauty Companion (4th Estate, £16·99), believes it’s essential: ‘Brand and price are not wildly important, but what is more crucial is that you use whatever product you buy. You will need a flannel/ face cloth to remove the cleanser and gunk beneath effectively, and to buff away dead skin cells.’ For a refreshing cleanse for normal/combination skin, try an oil-free facial wash. Facial wipes are also a great way to refresh your face on the go during a long, hot day. Upgrade to the latest micellar oil-infused versions, which contain tiny cleansing molecules to remove dirt, grease and make-up.

B e a u ty expert PROTECT As the weather improves, you may want to trade in your richer creams for lighter formulas, but don’t skimp on SPF with your day cream. Try Olay Complete Lightweight Day Fluid SPF15, which is a light, nongreasy formula that suits most skin types. If you’re spending time outdoors or have fair skin, it’s wise to up the sun protection. Nivea Sun Protect & Bronze Face Cream SPF50, absorbs quickly and smells pleasant. To apply, Sali advises the following: ‘Warm a little cream between your fingertips and massage into the skin using deep, firmish movements. Don’t rub back and forth if your day cream contains SPF as this often causes it to disintegrate into little balls.’

Olay Complete Lightweight Day Fluid SPF15, £5·69

Nivea Sun Protect & Bronze Face Cream SPF50, £6

NURTURE For combination and oily skins, serum may be enough to moisturise skin at night during the summer. Different serums tackle different skin needs, so choose the right product for you and apply a small amount to face and neck. Nivea Q10plus Anti-wrinkle Serum Pearls is great for mature skins. If you have dry skin and use a rich night cream or facial oil year round, try L’Oréal Extraordinary Oil Sleeping Oil-Cream. Infused with lavender and rosemary oils, it has a lightly whipped texture that is easily absorbed.

B e auty expert St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan for Face, £14·50

DIY

FACIAL Reinvigorate tired skin at home with a weekly facial. Beauty therapist and skin expert Yasmin Eddleston (beauty-bug.net) offers her tips:

1

‘Double cleanse: I swear by cleansing twice as it removes even the most stubborn traces of make-up, products and dirt.’

2

For a beautiful sun-kissed glow without risking UV damage – use a self-tanning product. St Tropez Gradual Tan for Face gives a subtle golden glow and, because it contains aloe vera, it hydrates, too. Even better, the ‘Aromaguard’ fragrance technology eliminates self-tan aroma by 70 per Simple Kind cent. St Tropez’s Jules Heptonstall suggests using To Skin a self-tan cream every few days to allow the colour Soothing to build up gradually. ‘And moisturising thoroughly Facial both morning and night will help achieve an even Scrub, skin tone,’ she says. £3·29

BLEND For a fresh-faced summer look, go for a lighter base. If you’re a fan of BB creams (beauty balms that contain both moisturiser and foundation), try BD Trade Secrets Face Lift Cream. Its super-light consistency means it melts quickly into skin, while providing a luminous sheen. If your skin is on the oiler side, a CC (colour correcting) cream would most likely suit you. These formulas help smooth out imperfections, conceal dark spots and neutralise redness. Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream is non-oily but still keeps skin hydrated and supple. Makeup artist Olivia Ferrer says, ‘Dot a little cream on your nose, chin and forehead and then blend outwards using your fingers or a foundation brush.’ BD Trade Secrets Face Lift Cream, £8·99

82

‘Exfoliate to slough off dead skin; once a week is plenty in summer. It reveals new layers of skin, so it’s even more important to apply sunscreen the following morning.’

3

‘Steaming opens pores, eases congestion and increases blood circulation. Fill a bowl with boiled water, cover your head with a towel and steam for five minutes.’

4

‘Masks are great for extracting impurities. If you have combination skin, try applying different types of masks to different areas – for example a claybased mask on oilier areas and a more hydrating one on drier spots.’

Quick Fix Facials Antiblemish Mud Mask, £4·99

5

‘Apply toner to clean skin to refresh, hydrate and soothe.’ Then, use a skinspecific serum followed by a night cream. Try applying the lotion while your skin is still a little damp – this means the product will not only absorb more easily, but you’ll use less, too. Use upward, sweeping strokes, starting with your décolletage and neck, working your way up to the cheeks, Refreshing and then forehead.’

If you struggle to get out of the house in good time because things never quite go to plan with the kids, try getting them to lay out their uniform, and put their school bags and shoes by the front door, the night before. That means no last-minute panic ironing shirts or looking for mislaid homework. To discover more ways you and your family can get involved in walking where you live, visit livingstreets.org.uk.

Good things

Never leave your shopping list at home again: Wunderlist (App Store and Google Play, free) allows you to create lists on your mobile, share them with family members or housemates and assign tasks to specific people. No more forgotten items, or repeat purchases.

THE BIG STAT

Not only is watercress deliciously

● The UK is home to more than 400 vineyards, and English Wine Week (28 May-5 June) is the perfect time to explore them. Independent wine merchants, bars and vineyards will be celebrating by offering tours, tastings and special offers. Look out in store for bottles of English white wine, made exclusively for Tesco by Denbies Wine Estate, or follow @englishwineweek on Twitter to find out about events taking place near you.

● Move over burgers and burritos, the new street food hitting our towns is all about lesser-known dishes from the food stalls of the world. Look out for classic Italian bites, such as piadina, served with flavoursome fillings (check out our recipe on page 54), and FrenchCanadian classic poutine – chips with gravy and cheese curd – served at the likes of Model Market. streetfeastlondon.com/where/model-market

HOW TO

USE WALLPAPER 3 DIFFERENT WAYS

● To temporarily close your road, you need to apply three to 12 weeks in advance. Visit gov.uk, search for ‘street party’; download the guide. ● Share the work among the street: ask everyone to bring a dish, plus any tables and chairs. ● Hold a raffle to raise money for drinks and other expenses. ● Make bunting from old shirts and scraps of material – challenge kids to make the most metres. ● Visit thebiglunch.com and streetparty.org.uk for more tips on how to make the day a success.

Make a statement with your staircase by applying patterned paper to the stair risers. Keep it uniform, or alternate prints for a bold look.

Wallpaper (or wrapping paper) makes cheap wall art. If you don’t want to commit to an entire wall, frame offcuts of different designs for a gallery wall display.

Give an old dresser a new lease of life. Apply patterned paper either to the drawer fronts, or for a subtle change, decorate the insides for a peek-a-boo effect.

PUBLIC SERVICE

WATER SHORTAGE

Not just good for a cold one, it turns out pubs are responsible for raising £100 million a year for charity, as well as playing a key role in our relationships – one in five people met their partner in a pub. Nearly half of Brits have been to wakes and wedding receptions in pubs, and threequarters of us have celebrated our birthdays in the pub. Cheers!

If you don’t drink eight glasses of water a day you’re not alone. The average Brit drinks just three and a half glasses, with one in 20 admitting they don’t drink water at all, and one in six believing that alcohol counts towards their water intake. It doesn’t (sorry).

Land of nod

A dark room and fresh bed linen are some of the top things most likely to send us to sleep, says a recent poll. Employers beware though: work meetings and a warm office also made the list. That explains the air con during winter then…

Cuddle up

Aberystwyth has been deemed the most hug-friendly place in the UK, after a study revealed that residents of the Welsh town give an average of three hugs a day to friends, relatives and co-workers. However, that’s two hugs too many if you’re a resident of Coventry, home to the most hug-averse people in the country. 98

CAUGHT IN THE NET

A survey of 2,000 five to 16 year-olds revealed that kids and young adults use the internet for an average of three hours a day. YouTube was the top channel, with more than half saying they watched the likes of Little Mix and One Direction. No stats on watching endless cat videos yet, but give it time.
