If you spend more time with your head in your hands than putting your face on, it's time to address those beauty demons.
Whether you need a quick-fix solution or answer to an ongoing mirror drama, you can guarantee the beauty world has already got it sussed.
Every week there's a new niche product landing on the shelves that will make you question how you ever coped without it.
Beauty editor, Lisa Haynes, reveals the wonder products for your beauty woes...
Dilemma: Lipstick looks too harsh on my lips but I can't stand sticky glosses.
Solution: If you enjoyed colouring in as a child, you'll love beauty's latest lip toy. Givenchy's Printed Lips looks just like a pen and stains your lips without any texture to create a soft pastel ink effect - perfect for the summer season. The limited edition tinted lip stain is available in Pink or Rose Impression, £16 (01932 233 824).
Dilemma: I'm getting married this summer and I have a prominent tattoo I want to hide on the big day.
Solution: You can still play the blushing bride and disguise your inner rebel. The consistency of concealer won't be thick enough for short-term tattoo cover-up so try The Sher System Perfect Cover Camouflage make-up range. The Undercover Cream, from £18 ( www.sher.co.uk ) is proving popular with tat fans who want the flexibility of concealing their ink designs for work or special occasions. The range also helps hide acne scars, age spots, varicose veins and dark circles.
Dilemma: I'm addicted to plucking my eyebrows but now I feel I have no hairs left.
Solution: If you're suffering from the permanently surprised look or carry around a brow pencil like your life depends on it, there are ways to channel old school Elizabeth Taylor eyebrows. Bold arches are big news so try a product like RevitaBrow, £87 (0208 997 8541/ www.skinbrands.co.uk ), for bringing those barely-there eyebrows back to life. Be persistent and apply religiously once a day in short strokes and you should start to see fuller, thicker looking brows within weeks.
Dilemma: I've tried countless foundations but can't seem to find the right shade.
Solution: With the sun out to play, our skin tones can vary drastically over the summer months so even your usual tried-and-tested shade may not feel like the right match. Try customising your own product that you can adapt along with your golden glow. Lush has launched new Colour Supplement pots, which you can mix with your favourite moisturiser to create your dream tinted formula. There are four colours available, ranging from Dark Yellow for olive skins, through to Light Pink for paler rosy complexions, £7.50 each (01202 668545/ www.lush.co.uk ).
Dilemma: I feel like I need to wash my hair every day but don't have time in the mornings.
Solution: Save on precious beauty sleep and skip the daily D.I.Y blow dry, which can be damaging for your locks. Ojon's Rub-Out Dry Cleansing Powder, £16.50 (selected John Lewis) refreshes and restores fullness to hair without so much as a drop of water. The formula of natural ingredients like bark extract, Amazonian white clay, and silk powder, also helps eliminate greasy roots. Simply spray throughout hair holding around 30cm from your head, gently massage scalp, and rub lightly from roots to ends.
Dilemma: The strong smell of mosquito sprays make me feel ill but I don't want to be bitten.
Solution: If you're a magnet for mosquitos, traditional toxic sprays can have an overbearing pong, repelling even the most ardent admirer as well as the intended bugs. Suitable for men and women, Mrs White's Unstung Hero, £15 ( www.roullierwhite.com ) has a fresh and uplifting lemon tea fragrance and will protect against pesky mosquitos for up to four hours.
Dilemma: I'm seriously contemplating a chemical peel but I'm wary of scarring and the lengthy recovery time.
Solution: You can achieve glowing skin without having to hide like a fugitive for days. Origins new Brighter by Nature High Potency Brightening Peel, £28 ( www.origins.co.uk ) is nature's non-scary alternative. The exfoliating pads, containing fruit acids, are said to rival the effects achieved from a professional 30% glycolic peel - all the radiance, minus the redness and unsightly snakeskin shedding.
Dilemma: Following menopause I've noticed a dramatic change in my skin.
Solution: During the menopause the reduction of oestrogen and collagen dramatically reduces the quality of the skin. Look for a product specifically targeted at mature skin. Ideal for women who have passed through the menopause, Yin Yang Skin Renew, £15 (Holland & Barrett) is an all-natural botanical cream that reduces the impact of natural ageing using collagen-boosting Zinc-PCA.
