WE are nearly at the end of January.

For many, that means cracking open the wine, stopping the jogging every day and finally tucking in to meat and dairy again.

Stay healthy in February with our top tips and products on the high street

This week, we look at ways to stay healthy in February – without being so strict – and also put some foundations to the test.


Alpro Hazlenut Original Drink is great in coffee, with cereal and on its own

It is great in coffee, with cereal and on its own. A good source of calcium and vitamins D, E and B12 with about the same fat as semi-skimmed milk.

Dry January

PomegranateActive – a 100 per cent natural premium pomegranate concentrate – looks like red wine and has a dry, fruity, pleasant taste

Each serving counts towards one of your five a day, is full of antioxidants and the fruit has been found to promote fat loss. See .

Run every day

Keep running throughout February and set yourself a new target

Apparently, moderate running is key to longevity and the optimum amount is 1 to 2.5 hours a week at 5 to 7 mph.

Budget — The Ordinary, Coverage Foundation

(£5.90, 30ml,

The Ordinary, Coverage Foundation lasts all day and is good value

Promises full coverage without a heavy make-up look.

It was a nice texture and went on smoothly and evenly with a brush.

Choose from 21 shades spanning fair to light to medium and darker tones. Lasted all day and great value.

Mid-range — Maybelline Superstay 24 Hour Foundation

(£9.99, 30ml,

There are 12 different shades in the Maybelline Superstay 24 Hour Foundation

Hid pores and smoothed skin completely.

It was light – no thickness or caking. Great value but it took slightly more of the product to get the desired look than with the budget or luxury options.

There are 12 shades, ranging from Ivory (the lightest) to Cocoa.

Luxury — Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation

(£32, 35ml,

Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation is our reviewer’s favourite

Packed with ultra-refined pigments, this claims to conceal imperfections and hyperpigmentation.

The range includes 30 shades. This gave the best coverage and the most natural finish – and I even had compliments about my skin. My favourite.
