We're back again with our tips and tricks to dissolve your beauty worries. So if you're desperately seeking the miracle moisturiser or a flawless fake tan, just email or post your question below and we'll search the beauty cupboard to find the very best solution just for you!

Q: I have very oily skin and I experience frequent breakouts, yet I still need to find a suitable moisturiser what do you suggest?
A. Even the best of skin can turn annoyingly oily in the summer months, but the answer to your problems is Dermalogica's oil control lotion that sucks up excess sebum and keeps your skin looking matte all day long!

Q. I'm only seventeen with fairly good skin, but it looks so dull! Any products that will give me a glowing-not-greasy feel?
A. Hmmm, we hate dull skin as much as the next girl. But to combat the problem, why not try applying some of Stila's wallet-friendly llluminating Tinted Moisturiser (£18; to give your skin an added glow? It even contains an SPF15 to protect you from ageing UV rays at the same time.

Q. I am sick of wearing my liquid foundation can you suggest a compact foundation so that I can touch up my make up on the go. I have oily/acne prone skin and I need a medium to thick coverage. Please help?
A. The buzz among the beauty pack right now is all about mineral make-up; it treats the skin while you wear it. And take our word for it, you'll love Prescriptives' All Skins Mineral Make-up powder with a built-in SPF15. It'll give you that air-brush effect coverage while feeding your skin with minerals and vitamins without clogging your pores!
