HAVE you ever given much thought to how you shave your body hair? If not, perhaps now you should, because, according to an expert, we're doing it all wrong. As it turns out most of us don't change the razor blade nearly as often as we should and prepping the skin is absolutely vital - but what does that even mean? A recent study with 2,000 women revealed that 76% of women prioritise their facial skin - often spending half an hour a week looking after it - while fewer than five minutes is spent on the rest of their body. What's more, more than a quarter (28%) also spend at least £20 a month on beauty products for their face, compared with just 7% spending the same amount pampering their legs. But Dr Ewoma Ukeleghe, cosmetic and medical doctor and ambassador for Venus, which commissioned the research reckons the obvious neglect is wreaking havoc on our skin - and it's a mistake most of us are guilty of. She said: "There’s lots of misconceptions around shaving and still a … [Read more...] about Expert reveals the shaving mistakes people ALWAYS make – so how many are YOU guilty of?
THE BBC must end the threat of prosecuting over 75s for not paying their licence fee for good, a cross-party group of 28 peers told the corporation’s boss. The threats by TV Licensing has created unacceptable stress among Britain’s eldest citizens which Beeb big wig Tim Davie must solve, they added. It comes as culture minister John Whittingdale today faces MPs questions over the Government’s approach to the TV licence fee. The letter said: “There is no moral justification for sending waves of threatening letters to people like 96 year old Frank Ashleigh who served this country by landing a glider behind enemy lines in Arnhem in 1944. “The BBC has many friends who want it to survive but the treatment of the over 75s is undermining that goodwill.” The peers insisted much more needs to be done in order to mitigate the stress to the elderly, including a pledge to never prosecute any over 75s for a licence fee . And they rejected any ideas of means testing. … [Read more...] about BBC must end threat of prosecuting over 75s for not paying licence fee, say peers

Balancing the books on the backs of the poor and unemployed would be, as Gordon Brown writes today, an unforgivable move by Chancellor Rishi Sunak. The alarm raised by the former Labour Prime Minister over soaring unemployment, including widespread joblessness among the young, is a warning that Boris Johnson’s Government is not doing enough. This is underlined by the need to kickstart Kickstart and restart Restart, two promised employment schemes failing to deliver. Wednesday’s Budget, delivered by a Chancellor presiding over an economic catastrophe worse than in any other G7 nation, is likely to be another missed opportunity to create an economy that works for everyone. Do you agree? Let us know in the comments below Yes, some measures will be welcome – such as extending furloughing and grants for businesses that were profitable before lockdown.

The 2021 Budget will feature everything from booze, fuel and cigarettes to wages, housing and Britain's Covid response. Rishi Sunak is set to focus on four themes - "support, vision, recovery, honesty" - when he addresses the nation in his annual statement next Wednesday. The Tory Chancellor is tipped to extend furlough, the Stamp Duty cut and other Covid support by three months, and the £20-a-week Universal Credit uplift by six months. He will unveil grim financial projections on Britain's economy and begin to sketch a vision for how it'll be made better post-vaccine - with grants of up to £18,000 for lockdown-battered firms to reopen. He could announce a string of other measures to help the economy recover - though some of these, like schemes to push people back into shops and restaurants, may not come until later. And aides promise he'll be "honest" about the need to claw back £280bn of Covid spending - as corporation tax could be hiked and income tax allowances … [Read more...] about When is the 2021 Budget – and what will be in it?
