Beauty hacks: 5 treatments to get in your lunch break

Who has time for a full body massage mid-week? Well, certainly not us by the end of the day. But we don’t want to miss out on treating ourselves every so often…

Rather than inhaling a Pret sarnie at your desk, how about using your lunch break to treat yourself? Here’s 5 treatments you can nab during that precious time off. You can thank us later.

1. The massage

Head to Espa at The Corinthia for a relaxing 60 minutes in the middle of your day. You can choose from their wide selection of treatments, and pack as much as you can into one indulgent hour. Whether you’re there for a facial or for a full body massage, you will leave feeling refreshed and ready to face the rest of the day.

2. The blow dry

If you hit snooze one too many times this morning and didn’t have time to sort out your barnet, then a lunch time blow dry is your best best.

Hershesons offer a range of 12 styles in their numerous locations to suit any hair desire, and you can stop by for a 15 minute blow if you don’t want to give up too much time.

3. The manicure

Stress showing on your thoroughly bitten nails? Hide that away with a pamper session in the afternoon and a speedy manicure. Treat those tired hands to a restorative manicure at Cowshed to hide any signs of the weather. They offer a 15 minute polish change as their express treatment, or if you’ve got longer then you can go for a 30 minute speedy manicure using their amazing products.

4. The facial

Maybe your skin is in need of a bit of love, especially now the weather is a little harsher. Use your break to give your face a treat in the form of a quick facial.

Askinology offers quickie facials that won’t take up your entire break, but will leave you feeling like you’ve got a new face afterwards. Try their 10 minute facial or even 30 minutes if you’ve got time going spare.

5. The makeover

If you’ve got big plans after work but don’t have time to prep that morning, then use your lunch break to freshen up your face so that you can go from desk to drinks in a minute.

Head to a Chanel counter near you for an express makeover that will take just 15 minutes, and is entirely free! They’ll try out their newest products and give you a fresh look that will liven up your face for the afternoon.
