Grazia's post-Fashion Week recovery plan...

04 March 2009

Phew! We've pounded the streets of New York, London and Milan. But before we hit Paris we're in need of some serious beauty pampering! So, just for you we've hunted down the best the beauty industry has to offer to get us back in tip-top condition and restore us to our former selves. Because even if you haven't been hitting the show circuit, with spring on its way we think you'll need some beauty treats...


After weeks of schelpping around in our highest Louboutins, our feet are in serious need of a pick-me-up and Harrods' Creme de la Mer Foot Treatment is the best way that we know how! Lasting for an hour and a quarter, it includes an exfoliation to rid us of our scaly heels, a thermal mask to rehydrate them and a reflexolgy massage to soothe away our aches and pains. Heaven! £65;


Some days we're so tired that even opening our eyes seems like an effort. Thank god we've discovered the genius that is Daxita at the Vaishaly Clinic. She meticulously applies up to 50 extra individual lashes per eye to give your peepers that extra flutter-factor and make you more wide-eyed than you feel. £150 for 90 minutes;


Shameful as it is to admit, we've had no time to wash our hair regularly and our matted locks are starting to go crispy with layer upon layer of dry shampoo... To remedy the situation – and fast – we're popping into a Charles Worthington salon for his legendary 'Mixology Treatment', which uses specific 'shots' of hair-reviving products according to the individual needs of your hair. Pick from a Flat Iron Treatment (hair is treated in sections using a flat iron heated to 100 degrees) or a Hot Towel Treatment (hair is wrapped in a warm towel to help the treatment penetrate the hair shaft deeper) and leave with your hair fully restored to its former shiny glory. Hot Iron Treatment: £23 for 30 minutes; Hot Towel Treatment: £16 for 15 minutes;


Don't even talk to us about breakouts! To solve all our skin worries we're off to Neville Spa in Knightsbridge to see uber facialist, Vanda (her clients fly in from all over the world just to get an appointment). She assesses the severity of our problem then treats us to the gorgeous Urban Renaissance Lymphatic Facial that includes high-tech CACI lymphatic drainage to drain away puffiness and toxins. 'Skin metabolism' and circulation are also boosted as she massages your face and helps revive a flagging complexion. She'll even pamper your feet with an exfoliation - and thread your eyebrows into the most perfect arch you've ever! £185 for 1 hour 15 minutes; Vanda Serrador, Urban Skin at Neville
