If you’re anything like us, a year of all work and no play has taken its toll on your skin and there’s only so much concealer that can cover those dark circles and get skin looking suitably sparkling again. Thank heavens then for Liz Earle’s Healthy Beautiful skin facial, £65 for 60 mins, which restores skin’s glow with a combination of purifying products and lymph drainage massage. Perfect for a pre-Christmas party lunch break, it’ll leave skin hydrated and refreshed and ready for some serious celebrating.
If you’ve faked your way to bronzed glow just in time for your office party but a hurried application has left more streaks than are welcome you’ll need St Tropez’s Tan Detox, £25.53. A fragrant bath oil that gently strips back layers of tan as you relax, this leaves skin restored to its (albeit slightly paler) state. Use the exfoliating cloth to scrub away at unwanted patches so you can re apply in a more even fashion.
