EVERYONE’S talking about Covid again – so today we look at ways to help you fight it, recover from it and check to see if you have antibodies to it – or have had it without even realising.

Meanwhile, we’ve “scent” Tara on a mission to test out some festive fragrances . . . 

The home finger-prick blood tests are £69 each and you get the results in two working days

TESTING – I am a big fan of Forth, which does various tests, from nutrition to hormones and liver health to vitamin deficiency.

It has just launched two Covid-19 antibody tests. One shows if you have had a past infection – which many people have had without realising.

The other measures the presence and level of antibodies to the Covid-19 spike protein after vaccination.

As immunity drops before the booster, this is great.

The home finger-prick blood tests are £69 each and you get the results in two working days.

  • Can be used after Moderna, Oxford AstraZeneca and Pfizer jabs. See forthwithlife.co.uk.


VITAMIN D – Probio7 has launched a new supplement called AB21 with 10µg of vitamin D, proven to support a healthy immune system.

The gut plays a key role in our health. Home to 70 per cent of our immune cells, keeping it happy is vital.

Vitamin D is pivotal in the immune and respiratory systems, main targets of Covid.

  • £22.99 for 30 capsules, or £18.39 on a monthly subscription, probio7.com

MASKS – We have to wear them again . . . but some are better than others.

The Silver Life face covering, recommended by the World Health Organisation, is made from a silver-based material proven to prevent airborne microbial infections.

Environmentally friendly, recyclable and super-comfortable. Plus – the bit I love – it has antimicrobial properties, so will not create a buildup of the bacteria that cause skin blemishes.

  • £33.44 for four, silverlifemasks.com

Beauty with Tara Ledden

BUDGET – Complete with a vegan-friendly faux-leather carry case, this looks like a perfume worth three times the price.

The good news is, it smells like it too.

Beauty Pie’s new perfume feels like taking a breath of fresh air

Festive notes of balsam fir and amber in this spicy unisex scent evoke a frosty forest walk, and it feels like taking a breath of fresh air.

Slightly too masculine for me but would make a great gift for the man in your life.

  • Beauty Pie Une Balade En Foret (£29 for 50ml for members, beautypie.com)

MID-RANGE –  With notes of juniper, cinnamon and fresh pine, the limited-edition spritz smells like a G&T by the tree on Christmas Eve.

Ideal for a moment’s escape in the ever-stressful lead-up to the big day. The addition of vanilla and suede notes gives a warm edge to the clean scent that makes it comforting and rather more-ish.

Molton Brown’s Jubilant Pine & Patchouli has notes of bergamot and lemon

A true gender-neutral staple that is perfect for the winter months.

  • Molton Brown Jubilant Pine & Patchouli eau de toilette (£85 for 100ml, moltonbrown.co.uk)

LUXURY – The cocktail of cocoa, tonka, almond and coffee makes this legendary perfume as addictive as my morning flat-white, but without the caffeine withdrawal.

Zesty notes of bergamot and lemon keep the rich scent on the right side of sickly . . . which is just as well, as it lasts for ever!

If that wasn’t enough, the seasonal sparkly silver stiletto looks great on my dressing table too. My favourite.

  • Carolina Herrera Good Girl Superstars eau de parfum, (£98 for 80ml, theperfumeshop.com)
