Love Island's Faye Winter has been incredibly candid about her journey with lip filler since she left the villa this summer. And a journey it has been, indeed: from the time she got frank in the villa about what her lips looked like when they were dissolved the first time (spoiler: contains reference to an old man's genitals), to getting them redissolved again when she left the villa - it's been one hell of a ride.

Once Winter had them dissolved again, she was quick to take to her Instagram – where she has 1.2m followers – to tell us all that she wanted her lip fillers back in. She went from having 4ml of filler in her Love Island days, to 0ml. That's quite the change.

After having adjusted to her natural, 0ml lips, Winter explained that she went back to have a more natural 1.5ml put back in. Looking back at her old photos, she confessed to 'not having realised what they [her lips] looked like before.'

'We all learn from our mistakes,' she said. 'You guys, learn from mine...you don't want to be walking around like that. I've done it for you guys; I've taken an almighty big one for the team.'

With Great Lashes, Come Great Responsibility

Dani Dyer's dedication to blow-drying (yes...BLOW-DRYING) her lash extensions, was testament to the fact that attentive aftercare is essential to prolonging their fullness. Got a set applied? Arm yourself with a wealth of spoolie brushes, and though we wouldn't recommend necessarily blow-drying them, giving them a gentle brush through during the day will keep them looking tip top.

The contestants' love of the bottled bronzing stuff is proof that even if you're spending your days in a glorious amount of sun, there's no need to top it up the risky way. The contestants were visibly on it with the SPF and spent their evenings layering on the faux stuff. Try one of our favourites, St Tropez Self Tan Purity Water Gel, £33, to get a sun-kissed look without damaging your skin.

Sudocrem Is A Spot Solution To Consider7 of 10

Sudocrem Is A Spot Solution To Consider

Montana was a Sudocrem obsessive in the villa. Come bed time she cleansed before dotting any blemishes with the stuff, then hit the hay. Why? Sudocrem might not be able to stop spots from forming, but if you've popped or picked one (everyone does!), its healing properties (it's full of zinc) speed up the fading process - that's some serious know-how. Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream, 125g, £2.99.

SULA? There Is A Solution8 of 10

SULA? There Is A Solution

Now, Olivia Attwood may have puzzled viewers by using her roll-on deodorant across her upper lip, but there was method in her madness (before you ask, we're not advocating this - do not deodorise your upper lips!). Olivia's SULA (sweaty upper lip alert) struggle was quite obviously real, and she obviously didn't have any blotting papers to hand - the best antidote to the problem. Try these hero DHC Blotting Papers, £4.50, and you won't look back.
