With various publications noting Kate Middleton’s recent haircut after the birth of her third child, many women of the same age have begun to turn to the glamourous duchess as a great role model for those women edging towards their forties.

Allow the skin to absorb the cream for several minutes, blot the excess with a soft napkin.
Picking the right moisturizer can be a hard task. What works as a deep-acting smoother for some leaves others' skin clogged and greasy. Similarly, a light cream will leave certain skins glossy and glowing, but won't penetrate others enough. Once you've worked out whether you face is dry, greasy or a combination of the two, you still need to decide whether to invest in a top-of-the range jar, or plump for a cheaper option. To take some of the stress out of moisturiser shopping we've picked some of the best in a variety of ranges, and are confident there'll be something for everyone.
