Looking for the latest? Here's a round-up of new trends crossing the fashion desk.

10 OUT OF 10

There are plenty of good reasons to like products containing coenzyme Q10. It helps to reduce sun damage, 
stimulates collagen production and - like any good antioxidant - generally encourages the skin to perform better. 

More recent research also links Q10 with anti-inflammatory benefits. Nivea's new Q10 Plus CC Cream, $19.99, combines the anti-wrinkle agents in Q10 with skin-tone correctors and sun protection. A very handy product to keep in your handbag.

WE LOVE 

If you're looking for a little feel-good gift for Mother's Day, Ecoya's Celebration Candle, $49.95, could be the one.

It has 70 hours' burn time, comes in an elegant cut-glass jar and smells of citrus and fresh air.

INSTANT BOOST

The world would be a glowy skinned andhappy place if we all had the time - and the cash - for regular facials.

Now, to help fill that gaping hole between wishes and reality, there's Elizabeth Arden's Ceramide Boosting 5-Minute Facial, $165, a multi-use combo of mask and serum that work together to pamper the skin and improve radiance.

Used either weekly to generally improve skin health, or more intensely before a big event, the two products
bolster and rejuvenate the skin. Then, over the longer term, ingredients such as Arden's Ceramide Triple Complex and retinyl linoleate (vitamin A) go to work on wrinkles and fine lines.

Good for all skin types.

STAYING POWER

It used to be that long-lasting lipsticks left a noticeable impression on the lips, a dry-looking stain that was more patchy than highly pigmented. Not so any more.

New-formula long-wearing lipsticks leave the lips hydrated, glossy, and comfortable. The newest are Estée Lauder's Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks, $57, each of which provide pure, opaque colour and a lush shine.
