Christmas jolliness aside, the festive period is a tough time – especially with the continuous carol singing, last minute shopping, mandatory overeating, and visiting every Tom, Dick and Harry you’ve ever met. So now is the time to start relaxing and rejuvenating for the year ahead. For those looking to give their health and wellness a boost, what better way to do so than hit the shops that specialise in pampering.
