Loads of beauty secrets we’ve heard aren't age-related, such as using baby powder ­instead of dry shampoo or (safely) heating your eyelash curler for mega-volume. But some elements of beauty become more apparent as we get older, and require entirely new hacks of their own. The good news? Age is just a number, and we’ve got some hacks that will send these beauty bugbears packing.

Isn’t it a pain when those pesky hairs start popping up on your chin and upper lip? Well, rather than poking, prodding and ­pulling at them with a pair of tweezers, try a facial hair removal option that will take care of an entire area in one fell swoop. Oh, and not to mention painlessly – how good! Just pop a reminder in your calendar once a month and you and those unwanted hairs will never be caught off-guard again.

Whether it’s been a while between appointments or you haven’t got around to using that box dye yet, there are plenty of ways to disguise greys in seconds. Admittedly, these techniques are easier to pull off with dark hair colours, but they’re also the ones to suffer from contrast the most!
