How to look ten years younger: keep nails short & neat

‘Discoloured nails really age you and are a fashion disaster’, says celebrity manicurist Leighton Denny.

Dip a cotton wool pad in lemon juice and rub it over them to remove stains, or apply a coat of Leighton Denny Brilliance Treatment Serum, £10, www.leightondenny.com. Keep nails in a modern squoval shape (short and square) and if you’re going for colour choose on-trend shades like bright coral or fuchsia, as dark colours can look harsh.

Other brands to try:

OPI Manicure Rejuvenating Hand Serum -age-defying hand serum for younger looking, softer feeling hands.
£23.95 from www.justbeautifully.com
  Dr. LeWinn's Restorative Hand & Nail Cream - intense anti-aging treatment
£20.99 from www.feelunique.com
