Shop for at-home pampering

Jo Malone London's Global Head of Fragrance, Celine Roux recommends their Velvet Rose & Oud Dry Body Oil (£52) for an at-home deep moisturisation.
"It is very easily absorbed, leaving skin satin-soft but dry to the touch. It isn't sticky so works brilliantly if you are dressing in a rush."  Win win.

Lymphatic massage is a gentle-pressure pampering massage with huge health benefits. It  helps the lymphatic system to push waste liquids through the body and has been shown to improve circulation, boost energy levels and even prompt inch-loss. One hour and you'll leave feeling blissed-out and truly detoxed.
